    I have been working at Onslow Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers are great. The doctors are also very easy to get along with, and very informative. They make the place tolerable. Penny is an amazing CEO, and takes the time to listen to everyone's problems.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to our needs, we are overworked and underpaid. There is nothing that we can do correctly, and are constantly talked down to.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay, listen to us when we say we need help, treat us like human beings!

    I worked at Onslow Memorial Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff that I worked with was amazing. As a team, we focused on patient care and we received great reviews from our patients. Onslow's slogan is "Where people care" and we took that to heart. When patients came in to see us they were more than just a medical record number. We took the time to listen to their needs and provided the best care. The focus and attention to patient care is why I loved my job.

    Cons

    The biggest issue that I saw was that upper management (not the supervisor) did not listen to the "lower" employees needs. They enforced the culture of "where people care" to patients but not to it's employees. They did not care about the employees. Whenever they decided to make changes to the way things are done they did it without asking for input. Nor did they spend a week in the "trenches" with us to see how things could be improved. When our supervisor would voice opinions or concerns they were ignored. Changes were made to benefit their needs without thought on how it would affect the staff. I believe that if they are to enforce new policies or make changes then they should be a part of dirty work. In addition, whenever we had concerns or issues they were never present. They were hardly in their office and took forever to respond.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to really listen to your employees and supervisors. They are the ones that deal with the day to day stuff. Before making changes that you deem necessary then spend a week in the respected department to see if your changes will be beneficial. One day is not enough data for you to make big changes. Practice what you preach and care about your employees. Be involved and create a better workplace culture. Make time for them and be present.

    I worked at Onslow Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits including PTO and cafeteria discount (if you want to call that a "pro")

    Cons

    Base salary poor. Mandatory overtime and on call. Mandatory float to units you are not oriented to.

    Advice to Management

    Wow, I could write a novel here. The best advice I can offer them is to remember there are 3 sides to every story: yours, mine, and the truth. Stick up for your employees when there are complaints. And lastly, hiring the right department managers in the first place would solve a lot of problems. Go ahead and let a larger organization buy you out and bring in some fresh ideas.

    I worked at Onslow Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PTO, easily get hired with little to no experience, diverse population.

    Cons

    Pushed beyond the limits of safety when it comes to patient safety. Shortage of staff in all nursing areas related to high turnover. High turnover related to poor work environment. Management lacks advocacy for nurse needs. Horrible compensation; 1 year of experience = $21/hr, 20 years of experience = $28.00/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the nurses
