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

    Pros

    The benefits are honestly the only pro at this facility.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is drowning this facility. They are not open to outside opinions and are too blind and prideful to realize that their current way of leading this facility got them into the situation they are in and refuse to listen to anyone else. They have the number one rated EMR system and they have ruined it with all of their customization because of the "that won't work here" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Start with a clean slate. You have a good start with some of the recent exits of senior leadership members but there needs to be more. You need fresh blood in there and people who are more in touch with the digital world to bring you into this century.

    Pros

    The prestige, the ability to reach great doctors quickly, the latest tests and equipment, the beauty of the location.

    Cons

    The pay. Some clinicians power-tripping. Some people not held accountable for their unsafe actions.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses would be nice. I heard they used to give them out all the time...

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

    Pros

    TGH is one of the top-ranked hospitals in Florida. I practiced on a very busy neuroscience unit that had the most complex neurosurgical and neurology conditions. The staff and management made it a great place to work at.

    Cons

    I do not really have any cons for how big of an organization TGH is.

    Pros

    Fast-Paced, never a boring day doing the same old thing

    Cons

    Where do I start? Management focuses too heavily on productivity and how much you can get done versus quality (all while expecting nothing less than perfection), pay is notoriously the lowest in the area, even with industry certification (which is now mandatory to even get an interview), and that's if you can even pass the personality test which allows your application to land in HR's hands.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the personality test- it's limiting the amount of talent you actually come in contact with; Bring pay up to at least average for the region, if not more for being the exclusive Level I trauma center in the area; treat employees like humans instead of robots from which you milk productivity so hard that you now have the highest rate of work comp cases in the facility. There's a reason the CEO was fired!!
