    I have been working at Solaris Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ok pay compared to other companies.
    Bonuses
    Great benefits of you are full time and use their services

    Cons

    Over the years employee moral has been declining.
    Policies changing every week and sometimes you won't know about them until you are called out on it.
    A LOT of favoritism between dispatch and some employees but management turns away


  4. "Smart caregiver that actually cares for the residents..unlike management"

    I worked at Solaris Health System (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not one at all that I have for you

    Cons

    Place is an absolute dump..port charlotte fl..management is a joke..they think they are smart..are actually stupid..try to talk circles around you..go back to school women..you are in the wrong line of work..you don't care about those residents at all..it's all a power trip to you

    Advice to Management

    Instead of only caring about how clean and popular your facility is..get some nurses and aids that actually speak English and care about the residents. Train your people appropriately and make sure your resident care plans are updated.Train your LPN's to do their own jobs.. instead of asking the aids to push their meds and apply their creams..and furthermore treat your aids with some dignity and respect..because after all we do most of the work and make the facility run!

    I worked at Solaris Health System part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is heavily dependent on the charge nurse. If you have a competent one, no matter how stressful or how heavy the workload is, you still survive the evening in one piece. For the most part of my career at JFK I have been blessed with charge nurses who go far and beyond their basic duties.

    Cons

    Like every working environment, the politics do get to you sometimes. Ironically, the staff are much worse in bickering than the higher ups. That was very troubling for me.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline is the key. I've noticed numerous instances wherein the subordinates becoming very disrespectful to their supervisors.

    "Good place to learn, but don't expect to be compensated well."

    Pros

    Great people to work with. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new things, you just have to be self-motiviated. The managers are very flexible and help with maintaining a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than the rest of the industry. Solaris is a not-for-profit. Annual raises have ceased in the past few years. Despite how much work you do and time you put in, you will not be compensated as good as you would somewhere else. Management would rather let you go than pay your true market value. They will replace you with a consultant or hire someone less experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees their true market value. You are losing your top employees...people who are great at their jobs and have knowledge of many inter-related systems. You will end up paying more in the long run by hiring consultants who have higher hourly rates and have no tacit knowledge of how things work in the organization. Ultimately, patient care suffers and your bottom line will suffer. Don't think that you can appease your unhappy employees with fancy toys. They'd rather have pay increases. They will get tired of the toys, and will use them to find new jobs like a few of us have already.

  8. "Hostile work environment"

    Pros

    Not much pressure with respect to producing research publications, as research is not actively supported or paid much attention.

    A few outstanding professionals work here.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't seem to care about anything beyond their paychecks. Low employee morale, and very hostile environment (see headline) with NO checks and balances.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to (or at least look like you care about) the plights of your employees. Just because problems don't directly affect your day to day life shouldn't mean they don't matter, especially given the chronic nature of some.
