    I have been working at San Juan Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can speak for the childbirth center only. Night shift is very team oriented. They make you feel welcome. The differentials are very good 3p-11p 15% and 11p-7a 25%. They offer 3% yearly raise and 3% if you meet criteria to ReiN. The health insurance is amazing! 49.50 bi weekly for a single employee and 119.50 bi-weekly for a family. And co pays are cheap at 10.00 if you use in network!

    Cons

    Low pay rates! New grad pay was 22.75 just last year. Not sure if it's the same since they finally gave a cost of living raise of 2.50. 2009 was their last cost of living raise and now it's 2016. Hopefully they will continue to have a cost of living raise every year now.

    Advice to Management

    None that I can think of. Maybe at a later time.

    Great Insurance plan, low deductibles.

    I worked at San Juan Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clean, comfortable physical work environment with many educational opportunities. Benefits offered and wages are among the best in the industry,

    Cons

    Employee confidence and trust in management is lacking, Different expectations exist and vary between departments and one employee to another, For example: written attendance policy is often changed to suit some employees and overtime and holiday schedules are unfairly distributed. I worked in the same department foe over eleven years and saw six different managers,

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee "surveys" and boost confidence and teamwork.

    Pros

    Good benefits, free parking, decent cafeteria, many opportunities to transfer interdepartmentally, free gym, multi cultural environment

    Cons

    nurse bullying by other nurses, management weak and does not address the problems such as low morale that this creates. Employees encouraged to "snitch" on each other and then rewarded for such behavior, favoritism , and management turns a blind eye to legitimate issues. Bottom line is all that matters. Non union.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is going on on your units and stop with the favoritism.

    I worked at San Juan Regional Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    PROs: Camaradere and team work among staff, okay benefits, there are ALWAYS job openings due to fast turnovers, experience so you can move on to a real job, a pretty hospital, decent cafeteria food

    Cons

    For the few years I worked here, there were a lot of staff turnovers. The common knowledge was that, they were let loose. I ran as fast as I could as I felt like I was next on the chopping block. I felt like I was targeted, like my ex-colleagues. And I just got out right in time. Another one was fired, months after I left.

    At staff meetings, suggestions by staff are rudely denied by manager. Meetings often focused on staff who made mistake, embarrassing them and when someone dares to defend the person being bullied, he himself is also criticized.

    When an issue is brought to the attention of the manager or even up to the higher ups, employee will be seen as trouble-maker and the administration will be watching your every move waiting for you to make a mistake, then threaten to or "hint on" firing you.

    Even after a year of leaving, my colleagues, who are still working there are asking me to write a letter telling how I was harassed, to support them on their rally against the manager and are AGAIN filing a complaint to the higher ups.

    Lots of Nepotism too, especially in the administration (bestfriends slash neighbors, cousins, daughter-in-laws to father-in-laws, mother-daughter), thus workplace unfair politics and favoritism.

    You have been warned.

    CONs: Non-union workplace, Politics, PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE UNIT MANAGER, NEPOTISM thus favoritism, the upper administration protecting their own, disgruntled coworkers, ridiculous salary ($20/hr newgrad RN), no job securilty

    Advice to Management

    You are losing good employees who could be loyal and dedicated by your poor management! Read review above!

    I worked at San Juan Regional Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are very good. Moderately sized hospital allows for transfer within departments and many career choices for all health care personnel.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management doesn't allow for transparency of troubled departments. Lots of politics within this hospital are ignored.
