    I worked at Palmetto Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can work as much overtime as you want because they are always short staffed. Various locations to choose from.

    Cons

    They care more about the bottom line than the do patients safety. Unless you are a nurse you are not valued by the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your front line employees and their concerns. It's not about the money it's about patient care and safety.

    I worked at Palmetto Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great, friendly people to work with, good benefits, up to date equipment, state of the art surgical interventions. Great CE Well managed.

    Cons

    Spend too money on people to come in & evaluate things that are functioning well. Spent tons of money on a Hurah session to increase employee morale..it was a waste of time & money...as stated by many....but since it has been discontinued. I have put in over 30 applications for positions for nursing & get the standard response within 1 day that someone else better qulaified has been chosen..I feel like I am being age discriminated.....

    Advice to Management

    Experience Nurses are great....look back at some of your young nurses...before dismissing an older nurses' application.

    Pros

    Great resources and education

    Cons

    Extremely bust floor, hard to get help from Techs, hard to get breaks

    Advice to Management

    Decrease number of techs, decrease nurse to patient ratio (to 4:1) which allows RN to do total patient care as RN does 90% of patient care anyways.
