    Pros

    All of the positives associated with working for a large company (benefits, training, etc), while also maintaining the feel of a smaller company. The people you work with truly care about you as a person and want you to grow.

    Cons

    There were some poor managers in place that significantly affected morale in a negative way. That has since been corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Don't wait for bad apples to work their way out on their own. It makes the staff feel like management doesn't care that their manager is ineffective. There were quite a few managers that didn't carry their weight, or were downright rude and mean.

    Pros

    nothing absolutely nothing .......nothing nothing

    Cons

    this is one of the worst places to work. the facility is disgusting, old, dingy and DIRTY!!!!! staff bathroom and patient bathrooms run out of toilet paper in the middle of the night and you request more and they ignore your request . NEVER have any necessary supplies such as no toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags. HR is a complete joke they only defend management they are not there to help employees or guide employees. If you aren't an important title in that hospital then you are nothing. Management talks down to you, treats you like a child, extremely rude and unprofessional. I resigned from my position and I got a reply back from a "big wig" in nursing administration (whom I've never met nor talked to) and her reply to me was "that solves things" as if i was problem employee and now things will be better. Management doesn't trust staff and has charge and clinicians call them in the middle of the night to resolve simple questions that someone in that role should be able to answer on their own, Can't trust anyone that you work with, constantly feel like you are working with a "mole" , you could cut glass with all the tension on the unit because nobody trusts anyone since management uses those ppl they implement to be charge or clinicians for spy's on the unit . manager comes in during the middle of the night and doesn't talk to staff or take the time to get to know night shift just sits in the nurses station working on the laptop that they brought with them at 1am. Meetings are scheduled at horrible times with no regard to night shift and your told you must come in they know your schedule so no reason you can't be there, regardless if you just got off shift and have to be back in 12 hours.....plus meetings are 4 hours long! Hospital offers classes for employees to grow and management refuses to sign the paper to allow you to take the class, the schedule is AWFUL management refuses to work with you if you have school or if you want time off regardless if you have PTO they will constantly deny all requests bc they say the unit won't be staffed if they give you a day off. This is a small amount of cons for this hospital, Pay is horrible too.
    THE BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE IS RUN RUN RUN find a different hospital

    Advice to Management

    make management go through extensive training regarding how to talk to staff, how to interact with people and not be socially awkward. Teach management to work with staff and staff will work with you. Don't be such a dictator and have faith and trust in the employees that you hire.

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed my tenure at TGH very much in beautiful Tampa.
    Professional, respectful and overall very nice Sr. Management team.
    Great place to work if you can navigate the political waters with ease, but this is true of any large organization.

    Cons

    Atmosphere can be very political. Titles are important for recognition. Some staff employees have had bad experiences thereby having a bad attitude in the workplace making them difficult to manage as a team player.

    Advice to Management

    Less senior staff employees would like to see opportunites for advancement

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues within the department, see a lot of newer things, simple charting system

    Cons

    no respect from management or nurses, no autonomy, cannot intubate or put in arterial lines, base pay $19/hr with no exp, overworked, sometimes 30+ hours of work, high turnover rate, and extremely understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees and try to fix the problem instead of just saying okay sure

    Pros

    3 days a week, 12 hour shifts, 3% raise per year. Started as a new RN 4 years ago making 23/hour base pay. Can do clinical ladder and receive 4, 5, 12 or 16% more hourly. Night shift is 18% more hourly

    Cons

    Patient to RN ratio can be high if understaffed, not enough PCT coverage but starting to improve. Ratio is 5:1
