    I worked at Shannon Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a plus to not have a long commute to and from work.

    Cons

    The people have been in their positions as leaders and management for so long that they actually separate themselves from general working staff.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Get your hands dirty. Be a peer not su "peer" ior to all those around you.

    I worked at Shannon Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is basically the only acute care hospital to work at in town. They have a lot of the local healthcare jobs. Pay scale could be better.

    Cons

    Very controlling environment, bullies, not a pleasant place to work. Management is stagnant and has been in power much too long. Need to clean out management and get new people with in those positions with new ideas and open minds.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be open minded, stop trying to control everything and everyone

    Pros

    most of staff care and are very good to work with.

    many times unsafe and the way management overlooks serious flaws and is clueless or indifferent to serious issues raised by staff.

    Advice to Management

    got off your collective " brains' and become proactive and not float through your days just collecting a paycheck.

    Pros

    M-F 8-5 Physicians were good to me and good to work for.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits, administration gets more wrapped up in the big wheeling and new growth and do not see the value of the day to day employees and their morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to use more common sense decision making. They would do well to compensate their good employees better.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and friendly nursing staff. I never feel like I have to look very far to get help when I need help.

    Cons

    middle and upper management need to take into consideration that nurses... are human. And when enough people have a complaint about a specific member of MGMT - that means there's a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff.

    Pros

    The opportunities to learn are great. .

    Cons

    However, they are so understaffed and that makes it hard for people to ask off. Lot of complaints from the lack of coverage by the workers. I was a float and the problem was everywhere, not just a specific location

    Advice to Management

    Improve the float pool and work on increasing employee retention.
