    I worked at Rhode Island Hospital full-time

    Pros

    You will meet some hard working people who you form great relationships with and that's it.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Nobody wants to speak up and address issues that are causing the hospital to get bad reviews. It's like everyone is scared that they will lose there job even if it means it's not getting done correct

    Advice to Management

    Get advice from the people who actually do the job, not from management. Your sick policy stinks you should implement PTO

    I worked at Rhode Island Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have learned a lot of things that I didn't learn in Sanford Brown institute. I work with very nice people.
    And they was always glad to see me when I walked in the door. Even though I was a volunteer, they,
    treated me like was one of them. they showed me how much they appreciated me being there. And always let me know how good I was doing.

    Cons

    Sometimes they have to many volunteers on at the same time. I filled out applications and it so hard to get a job in there. I volunteered for 3 years..

    Advice to Management

    Try checking out outsiders applications give people a chance to work for this great Hospital. even the
    people who volunteer their services to your hospital.

    I worked at Rhode Island Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits at Rhode Island Hospital, including a 401K and health coverage. They attempt to make the work environment collegiality, which it is, for the most part.

    Cons

    There aren't too many draw backs about working at Rhode Island Hospital, other than that the departments can be disjointed. If you are looking to work here it will be important to get to know your division before committing to a position .

    Advice to Management

    Rhode Island Hospital was managed well, overall. I do not have any suggestions or advice for management at this time.
