    Pros

    Benefits, pay are competitive, promote from within.

    Medical insurance plans are pricey and they are catered to the doctors and hospitals, so if you commute to work just imagine having to drive to their hospital if your sick.

    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    As a long time NGHS employee I have seen as we have grown in brick and mortar but our culture as well. Our lean processes lead to better productivity. Better productivity leads to better customer service. Better customer service leads to better patient outcomes. At the end of the day, that is what it is all about. Improving the health of our community. RN Resident program is wonderful.

    Cons

    as with all large organizations, there are struggles. Not all 8,000+ employees will be happy all of the time. Nursing shortages are all over the country.

    Advice to Management

    keep listening to your employees. Communication is key.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is competitive and generally good.

    Cons

    Long working hours (14 hours shifts can be needed). No continuing education. Must work as a temp or help desk before transitioning into other roles. Cannot advice your careers unless you become EPIC certified. (They won't pay)

    Advice to Management

    Do not discredit higher education and college degrees. Help desk is a great starting point, but is not required for other positions. Look at hiring external employees instead of trying to push under qualified internal employees into new positions. Also, EPIC Certifications are expensive and impossible for private individuals to obtain.

      Pay is better than average, Many amazing employees, Large Company with matching benefits, Tuition Assistance, Good Management

      Advice to Management

      The variance system on the surface seems to be a good idea for preventing future problems but it has turned the atmosphere into one of suspicion and rather than team members working together they are quick to push off the blame for errors.

    • "Great team. Poor management."
