    I have been working at Shawnee Mission Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -On-site daycare.
    -Dedicated charge nurses that do not take patients.
    -Great immediate management.
    -Education reimbursement.
    -Great coworkers.

    Cons

    -Stagnant wages year-to-year despite outstanding annual reviews. Past 2 years of raises did not keep up with inflation.
    -Out-of-touch administration. Very much a boys club atmosphere.
    -Adventist Health dictates policy regardless of necessity of change.
    -sometimes has a "for-profit" feel when it is supposed to be "not-for-profit"

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Get to know them. Increase compensation for nurses and your turnover rate will decrease dramatically. Make sure you "cost of living" raise actually outpaces annual inflation rates. Most RNs wouldn't even recognize our CNO.
