Pros: good hospital community; good health insurance
Cons: relatively low wage, questionable management practices
Offered long work days, but this suited me fine at the time.
Since I've been here, I have learned a great deal in the areas of CT, MRI, and patient care. In the last 10 years, I have earned a very responsible position.
My co-workers are about like they are anywhere, Some are exceptional, I try to stay closest to them, and this has allowed me to improve – more... my standards in practice.
Management here has always made me scratch my head and wonder why. Many decisions from above don't reflect much knowledge of how things are down here at the patient contact level. And, of course, they don't ask us for any input. Few of the local managers seem interested in actual leadership, functioning mostly as fire putter-outers. And when ordinary daily problems arise, more interested in punishment than support and encouragement. Teamwork is nearly non-existent.
The best part of my job, by far, is patient care and contact.I have this job because I care deeply about the people who walk in the door with infirmity, illness or injury. This is my calling. – less
