    I have been working at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Feels like family. Big enough hospital to get great experience, but small enough to not feel like you can make a difference.
    For those who like to pick up extra shifts, it's definitely available.

    Cons

    Limited staff due to recent turnover. This creates OT, which is considered a pro for some people.

    I have been working at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing to say of the top of my head.

    Cons

    Management sucks and they don't care about they're employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees right and speak to them like a fellow adult and not your kids or someone beneath you. There is a horrible turnover rate because y'all don't know how to treat or speak to people.

    I worked at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro was clocking out and getting paid.

    Cons

    RN are expected to be robots. No respect for peoples work ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Compassion, RN's are people too. Petty ends in high school.

    I worked at West Jefferson Medical Center part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I found that everyone will share their knowledge with you even to go that extra step with you to help fine information on it.

    The pay for ancillary staff is too low.

    I worked at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Convenient if you live on the west bank of New Orleans.

    Cons

    Severely underpaid. Purposely understaffed. Raise is only 10 cents a year. Outrageous work load.

    I have been working at West Jefferson Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent; employee discount in cafeteria, the office I work in is small and everyone gets along well. I've only been working there a short while so I don't have much to compare it to.

    Cons

    Holidays are not really paid. ...you have to have the pto, paid time off ,time to cover it. Not very flexible in that regard. Pay isn't equitable for hospital and clinic coders.
