    I worked at SwedishAmerican Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I greatly enjoyed the friendship that grew among my co-workers. We worked as a team and I always knew someone was there to help if I needed it. I also liked being a part of a nursing committee and having my voice heard regarding possible changes on the unit.

    Cons

    The unit could get very busy very fast with new patients being admitted.

    Pros

    Strong potential to grow and not just in your particular field of experience. Tuition reimbursement is available and encouraged to expand your knowledge base. Certification materials/study guides/costs also covered in order for you to continue learning without the stress of expensive fees.

    Cons

    The location of the hospital brings in a lot of interesting cases but is still heavily crime ridden and makes for a feeling of unsafe work environment. Other than location, I cannot think of any cons for this health system.

    Pros

    payscale is fair, shift differential for evening and night shift, good benefits

    Cons

    Not a lot of potential for advancement for nursing unless you're willing to put out a lot of money for schooling in return for a small raise.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff, help out on the floor periodically on ALL shifts.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, everyone pitches in when we are under the gun. Good benefits a great way to get your foot in the door. The hospital gets 3K applicants each month and employees are considered first.

    Cons

    Managers keep piling on the work. Management doesn't think through new procedures before we try them. Need to treat all employees the same not just a select few to get all the perks.
