  • Employee

Teamwork

Prefers sending passive aggressive emails instead of directly confronting bad employee performance

Career Development

Within my department, there are very few opportunities for growth. The opportunites there are are given selectively to favorite employees.

Overall compensation for your work

Paid much less than comparable employees at other local hospitals.

Environmental Friendliness

No recycling available at the medical center, even in the cafeteria.

Work-Life Balance

Won't listen to employee suggestions regarding weekends.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Add recycling! Also, a cheaper cafeteria would be great. Spending $8 on a meal at the cafeteria is just insanity.

What I like about the company

I enjoy working for the company based on my opportunities for practice. I enjoy the emergency room and trauma departments and the fact that we are a level 1 trauma center.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the management of my specific department. Requests from employees are consistently ignored, and communication is abhorrent. Positions are not freely offered to all employees, and open jobs are not communicated fairly. Our leadership needs a complete overhaul before the problems will be fixed.
