Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – September 23, 2014
Pros: great team to work with and excellent managment
Cons: understaffed...but we make up for it as a team!
I work on an Acute/Intermediate/Critical Care Unit focusing on patients with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. This is the third hospital I have worked for and by far, the BEST. The staff is extremely supportive and encouraging. We all help each other and never leave another staff member to do difficult work alone. The hardest part of this job – more... is the same as anywhere else: some of our patients can be....a little nutty! But, considering that that is the nature of our job, providing the best possible nursing care to others when they are sick, it is the best place I know of to work! – less
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – September 2, 2014
Pros: availability to work from home when needed
Cons: bad management in my department
Gwinnett Medical Center is a great place to work. Most of the people are friendly and caring. I spent most of my time putting out fires and trying new ways of doing things. Some worked. Some didn't. The hardest part of the job was when I was transferred to a department with a manager who had no idea what I did. Other challenges I would consider fun – more... but not this one. My co-workers were very supportive and helpful at all times. The best part of the job was seeing great people every day. – less

Pro-Fee Coder (Current Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – June 27, 2014
Pros: pay rate is great
Cons: not family friendly, lacking moral and lots of negativity.
Originally I loved my job. There started to become a lot of favortism and changes happening, which were not always for the best. This created a lot of tension and very hostile environment. There is no room for advancement unless your favored regardless of qualifications.
Unknown (Current Employee), Lawrenceville, GA – February 27, 2014
Pros: the benefits are great
Cons: little room for advancement
I currently work for someone without a college degree. The job is made for a person to have at least a nursing or bachelors degree. My boss has neither. I have worked in the healthcare field for 13yrs in the same field. Sometimes it's not what you know but who you know. Well in my case, here at work, that is the case. Overall Gwinnett medical is great – more... job. I have nothing bad to say about my job. I just wish I had a chance to move up. – less
