    Pros

    The group I work with are great. They love the patients and the work they do.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the pay. They are not competitive with salaries for nurses and office staff. Recent turn overs are because of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Needs better communication and pay from upper management.

    Pros

    Good work environment, great coworkers, management tries to take care of employees monetarily. Excellent benefits package. Employer willing to work with work schedule.

    Cons

    Pay could be improved. Some staffing issues regarding patient ratios most likely relates to nursing shortage. Education department could use some improvement.

    Pros

    The company is pretty good about recognizing employees for a job well done. The company perks are awesome, you can always find things for a lot cheaper than regular price. They let you transfer your position after your first six months.

    Cons

    The benefits are not good because you can only use your insurance at a wellstar facility. They let you transfer in the first six months but they tell your pay increase can only be increased by a certain percentage.

    Pros

    Good location in NW Marietta

    Cons

    Poor Culture. Lack of opportunities. Cronyism. Lack of equal visibility on projects for all employees. Education only available for cronies. Abusive middle management. HR that does nothing to prevent injustices against employees by middle management. Middle management not required to provide legitimate documentation of incidences. Retribution is rampant in Administrative offices. Repressive work environment. Poor vacation - "3 weeks", 6 of which are National Holidays with offices closed, remaining 9 days are personal, sick & vacation days. Hospital employees are far happier than administrative employees or so it seems - attribute to satisfaction of caring for patients & patient genuine gratitude.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention . Make changes now. You are not retaining top talent - only glad-handers & pay check collectors.

    Pros

    Benefits were good, except for extremely high deductible.

    Cons

    Would allow days off for nursing school schedule then later hold off paid days against you as "occurences".
