    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay compared to similar jobs in same capacity. Nice building to work in. Great co-workers in my dept. Work 3 1/2 days a week, off 3 1/2!

    Cons

    Nurses and other health care professionals can be rude and condescending to us support staff. The rules we are to abide by change depending on the nurses working, if their friends or family visit, or their current mood.

    Advice to Management

    You have rules, so make sure they're enforced across the board with no exceptions. Take better care of your support staff, because without us the hospital would cease to function.

    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Against traffic commute. Modern updated facilities and state of the art equipment and applications.

    Cons

    There is no standards for employee work. some work from home, most can't, some come in late and leave early, while others are strictly watched and disciplined. Some have little to no work or responsibilities, while other are over worked putting 50-60 hours a week. The Epic project is grossly mis-managed and is set for an Epic failure. How employees are being treated should be investigated by NGHS management.

    Pros

    great knowledgable staff, team work oriented environment, positive culture

    Cons

    growth of hospital has too many loose ends

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Foundation of the organization are the staff....especially nurses. If you don't know how to honor your staff, you will have none and NGHS will just be another hospital.

    Cons

    Hard to move up or develop into some other position. Short staffed, not hiring enough people to cover everything.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to cover an area and ACTUALLY LOOK at resumes for job transfers.

    Pros

    Braselton campus is new and new equipment. The pay is reasonable. Not the best. Some staff are nice and you make lifelong friends

    Cons

    Worst benefits ever. Environment is very clicky. It's a circle of favorites of mgmt who survive and get promoted. It's an atmosphere of white superiority and sticking together to Demonize certain nurses who challenge their way of doing things. Complaints don't get resolved. They have incompetent charge nurses who they call PCFs who don't take patients. Some are good. Most not. They have a manager running too many units. Hires incompetent inexperienced nurses and they don't value seasoned nurses. Turnover is highest I've ever seen. Everyone variances petty stuff and they waste so much money here. Too many chiefs here and no Indians. 3-4 charge nurses working in day on one unit doing "office" but just sitting around talking bad about staff and manager who actually trusts these people and allows them to suck all the money out of nghs. Where is the ceo and why can't joint commission be the ones to oversee their operations?

    Advice to Management

    Stop granting PRN to who you favor. Show equality to all employees. Stop writing up who you choose to for attendance while your favorites are late and absent all the time and no call no shows. There is too much conflict of interest here. Married people working in same unit and same facility. PCFs and house supervisors dating the tech and the tech can do what the heck they want and get away with it cause he's best friends with your daughter. Stop wasting money on lazy PCF's. Stop believing the lies that a group of these clicky people tell on your black nurses. Look at turnover rate. Someone needs to conduct exit interview and find out why you lose so many nurses.
    another bad practice is combining sick and vacation and personal PDO. Other hospitals don't! And then when you use a sick day, you get written up. They claim that even with a letter it's not excused. No one challenges their rules. This place is one of a kind. Pretty new hospital but a lot of disorganization and law breaking.
