    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Teaching hospital, nurse residency program for new grads, many resources for nurses such as lift team, phlebotomy, PT/OT, etc

    Cons

    takes a long time to advance, u can get 2 years of experience and you won't be paid as if you have 2 years you will be paid as a new grad at least until you submit your clinical ladder (roughly 4%) increase and or get annual(12 month) /18 month raises, if ur manager is awful/selfish you wont even fully get the 3% annual raise that is basically 1$ for new grads then you get an additional 3% at 18 months (if you qualify=don't get written up) so max raise of about 3$ within the first 2 years if you get the maximum that you can get, that puts you at about 27.50$ max at roughly 2 years when really it ahould be about 29-30$ market value for 2 year experience

    Should be more competitive with compensation for nurses

    Many nurses leave to get paid what they should be getting paid

    Advice to Management

    Better nurse compensation

    Pros

    Great hospital that continues to make improvements. New CEO is making positive changes and seems to really care about his staff.

    Cons

    Pay is less than nearby hospital, but the benefits are much better at TGH. The better work environment and respect from leadership makes up for the small difference in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they are doing a great job.

    Cons

    Nursing Senior leadership needs to abide by their culture

    Pros

    Benefits, new CEO with great vision for the future, Epic EMR

    Cons

    The CNO has created a a real culture of fear here. There is a lot of potential for amazing things but not while she has everyone under her micro-managing thumb, sadly.

    Advice to Management

    Find more senior leadership that aligns with the new CEO's mentality!

    Pros

    New CEO has a great vision for the hospital's future.

    Cons

    Low pay, disconnected management. They want to take this hospital to the next level but the consistantly hire medical coders with little or no experience. People from other departments are being recruited that haven't even gone to coding school! Promises made, promises broken. If you are looking for a coding opportunity, stay far away from this hospital, they wont pay you what you're worth!

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the talent around you and pay them what they are worth. Otherwise, you WILL lose the ones that have other options!
