    I worked at Rapid City Regional Hospital full-time

    Pros

    - High pay for the area
    - Organization has some very talented people working for it
    - Lots of different business locations in area to move around in
    - In midst of a growth plan which involves image makeover and infrastructure improvements

    Cons

    - Ineffective management, especially at the higher levels. Lack of accountability, lot's of finger pointing, passing the buck and excuse making
    - Capital management is non-existent, project overruns and high labor costs due to poor financial controls, poor decision making, poor employee relations, and poor employee retention strategies
    - Huge turnover issues at mid and lower levels, lot's of favoritism, lack of leadership, too much complaining about how its all the fault of the millennials
    - Way too much emphasis on physician recruitment ($$$) not enough on support staff ($)
    - Over reliance on travelling nurses at the expense of hours for the permanent staff, no loyalty to the folks that stick around
    - Organization tolerates too many problem employees at the expense of the one's doing the right thing, which end up ruining it for everyone.
    - Lack of meaningful communication and too much fluff

    It took a while, but I was finally able to get out and without burning any bridges.

    Advice to Management

    Sorry, but you're not going to follow it anyway.

    Pros

    There really are no positives with RCRH. They treat us with little to no respect. Long term employees are not valued or appreciated.

    Cons

    Poor work conditions, poor patient management. The lack of integrity and leadership is causing poor patient satisfaction and patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being a business and be a care provider

    One of the highest paying employers for RN's the Black Hills area, but still far below the national average.

    Poor benefits
    Rotating shift work
    No student loan repayment

    Advice to Management

    encourage more balanced and healthy lifestyles for employees- The happier and more rested your employees are the safer and more satisfied your patients will be.

    I worked at Rapid City Regional Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No phones. No parking issues, no fees for parking.

    Cons

    Leadership was lacking. Management was fishy in dealings. Tried to get me sign away my PTO when I moved from FT to PT. Against policy. But tried to bully me until I called compliance.

    Advice to Management

    Since leaving management was changed. A few from my department, managers and assist managers were merely reassigned to other positions. My friend did a traveler position, said it's all travelers now. What fulltime staff there is are not getting hours.
