      Pros

      We had a great boss. Resently changed. We will see how that goes. We have had bad bosses before, So I have started to look nonetheless.

      Cons

      We had a bad boss experience and then promoted a new boss from within. 4yrs later a Director possition came up. Hospital hired from outside and then our good boss stepped down.. don't know the details, but from my vantage point they did her wrong. So con would be they don't grow from within. Core values on paper are not the same in practice. This impacts the culture.

      good and bad

      Pros

      Good benefits. Generous PTO. Great surgeons. Large hospital with a lot of patients. Main OR does all types of surgeries so great opportunity for learning and to get experience. 8 hour and 12 hour shifts available, both day and night. Management works well with managing employee schedules and vacations. Not a lot of call during the week. Usually work only 1 weekend every 4-6 weeks. Salaries are getting better with many market adjustments in the past 5 years. Still not the best for the amount of work and type of surgeries but it is improving.

      Cons

      Excess turnover of staff in the past several years. A lot of new circulators and scrubbers. Very busy and stressful weekend shifts with very little leadership. A revolving door of Directors, 5 in 10 years to be exact. Poor management of excessive tardies and sick calls. Staffing issues. Experienced circulators and scrubbers will do all of the heavy lifting and hard cases. Low call pay. Poor management of OR schedule, with very heavy busy days and very slow days. Management expects you to stay when they over book the OR but will turn around and send you home the very next day when the OR is slow. Overall not happy with the way the hospital managed the pandemic. They took away hours in the first shut down, with little options to get paid. There was no support with EDD benefits. A lot of employees lost all of their PTO trying to survive the shut downs. Poor overall hospital moral. Poor overall moral in the OR. Management finds temporary or short term fixes to major problems. Management doesn't fix problems quickly and effectively. Some very bad attitudes, in older staff, who cause drama and think they run the place. OR equipment and instruments are out dated or old technology. It takes years for new surgeons to get the supplies and instruments they need to advance the OR and provide better patient care. Overall the hospital is cheap. The quality of our supplies and equipment has gone down drastically in the past 3 years.

      Pros

      They have annual company picnics. Maternity care as an employee is amazing. It’s a good place to gain experience. Very diverse positions within the medical offices where you can rotate and have more experience in. You can transfer between departments. They have a hospital wide Christmas dinner for all employees to join.

      Cons

      No room for growth, makes it hard to go to school in order to advance because they don’t work with school schedules, they have decreased the amount of uniforms supplied per year due to budget cuts, they are strict on OT even though we don’t have a choice, they are a non profit organization and pay is not that great, benefits are not impressive. So difficult to reach anyone in HR.
