    I worked at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good teamwork. The organization has great values and sticks to them very well. They are usually supportive of their employees.

    Cons

    Low pay, some bad employees but not many. Can't really think of anything else but I have to write at least twenty words.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. The opportunity to advance is great too.

    Cons

    The hospital itself is great. Other units are great.... other jobs are great... being a PCT sucks... being a PCT on S3E Sucks even worst. Short staffed on the pct level all the time. PCT's get 11 patients, and the nurses get 4. However, expect you to do a lot of things without helping. The pay for a PCT is absolute crap. You have to wait 1 year to transfer.

    I have been working at Northeast Georgia Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff is friendly and scheduling is flexible.

    Cons

    No room for growth or better pay. Everyone knows that you have to leave the company and return in order to get competitive pay. There are new nurses having >3-4 yrs exp with no critical care or ICU/ER experience hired that make $3-$4 an hour more than employees working 5-10 yrs here that have critical care experience.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up please

    Pros

    Location - it is closer to my house than any other hospital.

    Cons

    Patient safety is not a priority!!! Neither is employee satisfaction. Management lie frequently about upcoming changes. I do not trust what anyone says because tomorrow it will be a completely different story. No sense of trust or job security.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Transparency is much appreciated, but something that is lacking here. It may be cheaper to eliminate nursing positions but patient safety cost much more in the long run.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy the people and patients work with. Most staff are polite and jovial , occasional perks here and there. Point/gift system for working PRN or filling in ( Bidshift)

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel like a number and some decisions communications aren't told to all staff memebers. And there seems to be confusion amongst management in some depts. Understand it's a BIG company but there has to be a way to be fluid.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to slow down and if they have managers / supervisors under them, allow them to their job. If they can't , get someone that will. Micromanaging isn't necessarily the way to go. But there is a middle ground to start with. Otherwise , all is well and I don't know that I'd change anything else. Unless I get dibs on a raise ;) thanks NGHS
