    I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities within department for career progression.

    Department provides latest technology.

    Very Diverse workforce

    Performance incentives offered to hourly staff

    Great training program

    Cons

    Pay is comparable to entry level work, such as retail or fast food work, however EVS technicians perform a very important technical job.

    Leadership that our director reports to fails to make our staff to feel like they matter. EVS is like the offensive line of a football team. They have the most important job on the team, but you rarely hear about them unless they miss an assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate geographical area for market adjustments in salaries to match high performing HCAHPS hospitals, specifically related to high cleanliness scores and see if there is any correlation with higher pay.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of areas to work and easy to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Nurses are no longer encouraged, or really even allowed, to be professional. You have a computerized worklist to complete and if it is not completed, regardless of the actual status of your patients, you will be written up. If your patient codes and survives the code, don't expect any positive feedback from management. Expect your charting to be poured over and anything that can be used to write you up will be. This hospital is no longer a place to be a nurse, it is just a terrible place with plummeting morale.

    Advice to Management

    Quit remaining behind closed doors watching your staff on camera. Get out of the units and actually get to know your staff. The best manager at TGH, who has retired, stayed in the nurse's station until Noon. She knew her staff, and her staff respected her like crazy.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance, pharmacy, dental insurance, vision insurance, low copays

    Cons

    Administration only cares about making them money. No breaks not even to go to the bathroom or have lunch. Poor administration phylosophy. A lot of unprofessional manners from manager and poor backup from HR. No money for CEU. A lot of non ethical values from manager. You are a work horse without water or food.

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers, have a mission and values and stick to it so you don't keep having 50 employee turnover in a yr.

    Pros

    Good environment for learning. My department allows for very flexible scheduling. I guess it would look good on a resume to a future employer.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with other bay area hospitals. Cafeteria and other areas are always dirty. Patients and visitors ignore the no smoking signs and smoke everywhere.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital (More than a year)

    Pros

    You work on Bayshore, Blvd. Good dental benefits.

    Cons

    shady, egotistical leadership, favortism, dishonest.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not upset your employees so much, the little tests in how much one can take before one quits is counter productive. Also, irregardless is not a word so tell your communications supervisor to not say it so much, or ever again.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are a plus and mission is good.

    Cons

    Terrrible management. Expectations of their "PSS" positions are too high for the salaries offered. They are expected to do EVERYTHING for peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate repsonsibilities more and get enough help to allievate burn out.

    Pros

    I want, so badly, to have something good to write in here but the words will not come.

    Cons

    The culture is so off here. They have tried so many "programs" to fix it when they really should just realize they need to get rid of the people holding them back. There is great potential to be amazing but they just can't cut bait and move on to new a fishing area and that error is going to sink the ship.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the changes you started in senior leadership. The CNO's "direct" nature (more like attempted aggression and intimidation) will only continue to ruin us. #shame
