Pros: it was a job
Cons: low pay, unprogressive culture/ethos
This company is, without a shred of hyperbole, the worst one for which I have ever worked.
Low pay: in over 3 years there, I received a total of $1/hr raise. When I found a comparable job at a competing metro healthcare system, the pay raise for the same job description was $8/hr. When I told my HE boss before I left of the pay discrepancy, she merely shrugged. I suppose from her perspective, if she has people who will work for lesser wages, it's all good.
2) old equipment, cheap , inefficient electronic charting system before a new CEO brought them into the 21st c. With a scrapping of the old system and a move to EPIC.
3) Not requiring employees to be credentialed in keeping with the industry standard and even metro norms. These under credentialed, undereducated folks with whom I worked are simply not employable at other metro hospitals due to their inability/unwillingness to keep current with industry standards. While I was there, 3 coworkers applied for a supervisor job. Two had bachelor degrees and the advanced credentialing standard everywhere else. The 3rd employee, who got the job, had the basic credentials(1 yr degree) in spite of having never worked anywhere else in her 30 yr. career, and not having availed herself of HE educational reimbursement to continue any sort of education in that long tenure.
