I left after 4 months at Moffitt. The culture there is sink or swim, team work is discouraged, negative environment, the people will "throw you under the bus" at the drop of a hat. In a period of 4 months, 6 employees, including 4 RNs, 1 manager, and 1 physician assistant, left Moffitt . These employees lasted less than 1 year in a department of 13 employees. That has a lot to say about the rentention and recruitment rate. There are 50% turnover rate in this place. Moffitt has no understanding of CMS, Joint Commission or documentation. It's either under documented or over documented. As an RN, I feared of loosing my license every day. The department where I was thought they are immuned to the national standards and requirements. Computer charting is not up to date. For example, you have to chart in three different places for a medication. It is an uncleaned and unsafe environment for patients and employees. It may be well known for its R & D, but that is it. I would not refer any one to apply at Moffitt.

When I first started in mid-2000s, it was strange to see so many happy employees. But by 2009/2010, everyone... EVERYONE I spoke to, in a variety of departments, could not stand their job any longer. But being Tampa, they had no options. And managers know this. So they treat you "OK" as long as you are a star performer and don't ask for a promotion or any recognition. Once you do, you are re-assigned, re-evaluated, and promptly placed on an EIP and shown the door. I've seen it happen to more than a few co-workers. Sr. Mgmt and HR do nothing... except inform the manager that his direct report has a problem with them. Morale is in the toilet. Work/Life balance is out of balance. Pay is far too low for such lofty expectations (usually to compensate for some inept colleague).
