      I have been working at Rochester General Hospital full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Holiday Pay Friendly coworkers, Doctors are friendly

      Cons

      VERY short staffed. Patient ratio of 7:1, with some very acutely ill patients. Shortage of Patient care techs as well. Pay is not great. Benefits are not competitive. I have been through 3 managers in the past year and 1/2 of working here. The turnover is awful. Staff burn out quickly and management does not seem to take notice. Low staff morale.

      Advice to Management

      They need to increase benefits. Make this a place people would like to work by offering competitive salaries. Needs a nursing union to protect nurses since this hospital does not protect their nurses.

      I worked at Rochester General Hospital for more than a year

      Pros

      You get paid on time.

      Cons

      Made a big mistake and accepted to do research in this organization. The people in the research department are nice and knowledgeable but the organization does not have a research culture. - No value and respect for medical research. They have no whatsoever understanding of research. All of the successful and renowned healthcare providers in the country heavily invest and support research, no wonder Strong hospital...

      Advice to Management

      Instead of investing millions on TV and radio adds, invest a bit on medical research in your own organization so maybe you could actually help move the scientific field in illnesses forward and get a better recognition.

          I worked at Rochester General Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

          Pros

          Innovative Facility Competitive Salary Majority of physician are great to work with Fantastic patient care

          Cons

          Horizontal violence among nursing staff and unit managers is horrific. If you speak up about inappropriate behaviors or treatment/bullying, you are not supported by management or HR. Favoritism runs rampant on the units. Nursing assignments are not divided equally and the nurse-patient ratios are unsafe.

          Advice to Management

          Treat staff equally. Lend a hand on the front lines when understaffed. Get rid of the managers that do not run cohesive units and maintain retention of the nurses. Obviously if turnover rates are high on specific units, then those managers are not effective!
