Suggestions for improvement
- We need more staff we are expected to run as a fully staffed place when we are really stuggling
I've worked for this company for over 15 years. They offer great benefits to their employees. I think overall they treat employees with respect.
I wish they'd compensate their employees better. Compared to surrounding hospitals, we get paid much less. We lose great employees because they go to better paying hospitals a few miles down the road. Our hospital has the busiest ER in Georgia, 5th busiest in the USA, our pay should reflect that. Instead it makes you feel disrespected when they refuse to compensate you. I feel instead of sign on bonuses, in which people leave after a year of getting it. They should give retention bonuses to people who have been at the hospital for several years. I know people who change jobs every 2 years just to collect $10,000 sign on bonuses from each new employer. It's a slap in the face to people who has been working for a company over 15 years.
I like my co workers. They understand the struggle and help to stay positive
Leadership/upper management. They have no idea what the workload is like. They just delegate and expect results when they feel necessary.
