    I worked at Stormont-Vail HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great things about working at Stormont-Vail. There is great camaraderie among staff. Everyone for the most part, works together as a team to provide the best care for patients. Upper management is involved and visible to employees.

    Cons

    Not too many cons, mainly the pay (non-clinical staff) and the retirement plan isn't substantial, but that is probably common for a not-for-profit hospital. There are a lot of restrictions for everything you need to do for your job. I felt a little micro-managed at times. There was no room for advancement, that is why I left.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Promote from within if at all possible. Deserving people are not getting promoted.

    Pros

    Big hospital, get to do a variety of cases. Surgeons are great to work for

    Cons

    The management in surgery is very bad. We're treated horribly. They show favoritism. Very low morale. Required to take A Lot Of call. Policies are changed daily. Too many people in charge, fighting over power. Charge nurses talk down to us, they're unprofessional, they change rules for favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff fairly, and respectful, appreciate what they do. There is a reason the turnover rate is so high.

    Pros

    Opportunities for paid training
    Upper Management seems to want to see improvement in local clinics
    Decent starting pay for the area
    Some wonderful doctors

    Cons

    No flexibility of schedule
    Not much room for promotion
    Negative lower management
    Stressful environment
    Favoritism
    Many issues with software that is necessary for the position
    Not enough staff to manage needs of physician's and patients

    Advice to Management

    More assistance needs to be provided for employee growth and stress management. Upper management should pay closer attention to whom is actually performing their positions to the best of their abilities, and who is slacking off on their duties.

    I worked at Stormont-Vail HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are in the action! If you want a chance to have hands on patient care working directly alongside physicians and nurses, this is the job for you. Unlike other units, you get to see and take part in a wide variety of healthcare situations, as the ER is the gateway to the hospital. This is a great role for prospective nurses and med students who want to learn a lot and gain valuable experience or anyone who is interested in patient care.

    Comradery is awesome! The high demands and emotional highs and lows of the job really bring everyone together. Physicians, nurses, techs, everyone depends on each other and has to work as a team. I made some great friends during my time there.

    The schedule: For me, this was a plus, but I could see how this could be a con for some. Full-time is three 12 hour shifts. I really liked going in working a longer shift and then having lots of time off. You can really get used to having 4 days "weekends" all the time.

    Cons

    Well, it's an emergency room, and that means you are going to be seeing people on one of the worst days of their life. (In some ways, this is a pro, because you are able to help them in a time of need.) However, some of the things you see and experience stay with you. Losing patients is hard.

    It's hard work. You are on your feet for hours on end performing many tasks. There are days when the ER gets SLAMMED, and you just have to put your head down and get to work. This is not a job for someone who just wants to sit and perform rounds every once in awhile.

    As a tech, sometimes you have to go up to one of the floors and patient sit if the ER was slow. This essentially means you go into the room of a patient who needs to be watched constantly and sit there. Sometimes they are up and want to talk, sometimes they are watching tv, and sometimes they are asleep and all you can do is sit there. It could be very boring and was by far the worst part of the job.

    The schedule: While the schedule is mostly a pro, you do have to work some weekends and some holidays. (However, it is set up so you don't miss every holiday. For example, if you work Thanksgiving, you won't have to work Christmas)

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have anything for the management. They seemed invested in us as employees, and I always considered them to be fair.
