    I worked at Rochester General Hospital full-time (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!

    Pros

    stable salary, job security, excellent complement of specialists

    Cons

    huge micromanagement of physicians, not giving physicians ability to practice to the top of their capability, diminishing physician morale with decisions made by administration that is often belittling to physicians, lack of support for legitimate clinical concerns brought forward to administration with greater focus always on the financial bottom line and the aggressive financial growth sought by the administration

    Advice to Management

    give more consideration to the highly trained professionals that are working for your institution
