    I worked at Palmetto Health full-time

    Pros

    Very dedicated staff who have stayed despite a lack of wage adjustments and lots of changes; great physicians, a real commitment to quality and a positive experience.

    Cons

    The recent merger feels more like a take-over; salaries not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people a competitive wage!

    Pros

    12hr shifts and overtime you can watch a live autospy

    Cons

    May randomly back out of set schedule made for you if your in school nurse managers click up with certain nurses and PST mistreat patients definitely not one team as they say patient support is not their strong suit I believe all non patient support areas like radiology sterile processing surgical laboratory science etc are better to work for but CNA related work outside of endoscopy ED and outpatient don't work here you can work here for over 6year using your licence and make less than 13/hr I left and started working for myself making 16-18/hr CNA gets no appreciation unless your self employed or home health for a luxury company or traveling cna also very hard to get in unless you know someone

    Advice to Management

    Great CNA better up their pay and give raises for additional training and stop blocking outside people who don't know anyone to get in thathospital

    Pros

    I love the diversity of the staff! There's room for advancement at all levels for people of color. This is a level one trauma center with educational opportunities abounds. They also have the wonderful technology available.

    Cons

    The pay is below average and they haven't given pay raises in over a decade.
    The security services need an overhaul!

    Advice to Management

    Really focus on fair and just compensation for the staff. It's imperative to retain good staff. Allow police substations inside each hospital to provide additional security. Also, get an entirely new security company! That will hire competent, and physically healthy security! In today's climate patient and staff, safety depends on it!
