    I worked at WellStar Health System full-time

    Pros

    Only one good reason to work for Wellstar and that's for the tuition reimbursement. Wellstar provides $4500.00 a year in reimbursement . No obligation. I completed my Master Degree. So sad very few employees take a advantage of the wonderful benefit.

    Cons

    While working at Wellstar I experience, favoritism, nepotism, racism and bullying from co workers and I worked in hostile work environment, no consistent training. The pay scale is extremely low and not competitive in the job market. I experience Leadership with poor communication skills verbally and written. I experience unethical behavior from Leadership daily.

    Advice to Management

    My advice ,Wellstar needs to require their Management Staff to have proper College Education and Qualifications and not put people in positions just because they are friends or have family members of someone at Wellstar, that does not make you a LEADER. Stop hiring incompetent Leaders. Wellstar needs a ETHIC OFFER on staff to enforce Ethics throughout the Wellstar System. Wellstar needs to stay competitive with Salaries.
