      Pros

      It's a good place to gain experience

      Cons

      Management, Co-workers, superiors, will make you drink every night even if you don't drink. The attitudes and professionalism really sucks. Constant broken promises and no room for growth.

      I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      - Non-managerial employees (doctors, nurses, support staff) are likeable, almost across the board. - Management is closer to 50/50 -- they're either very good and dedicated, or completely disconnected and out of touch. - Good insurance.

      Cons

      - Low pay, high turnover. - Computer systems are archaic, new updates have made things worse. - Management does not support standardized care -- special exceptions are made for doctors who don't necessarily follow any kind of medically/scientifically supported guidelines. - They are quick to make changes to unit policy without making a clear announcements.

      Advice to Management

      - Stop changing things that are working well, and focus on improving things that need improvement. - Create policies that force "rogue" doctors to meet certain hospital standards (rounding times, etc), rather than making a ton of unnecessary exceptions. - Streamline processes so that there is less room for error or confusion. - Find a better way to announce changes that are being made. - Hire supplemental staff...
