Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Macon, GA – January 2, 2014
Cons: management, compensation lowest in area
The only thing I enjoy about working for MCCG is being a part of my patients' healing process. I would not recommend this employer. I do not feel MCCG values their employees. Employees are not treated fairly. I have no other comments to make.
Front Office Receptionist (Former Employee), Macon, Georgia – November 30, 2013
Pros: exciting, great pay
Cons: you could not make a mistake
I loved this job and my co-workers. One minute it would be very calm and the next we would have an emergency then everyone was working together to get blood to someone in the ER or the OR that needed it. We all worked very well together. We knew our jobs and everyone was very professional.

Radiology Technologist (Former Employee), Macon, Ga – October 1, 2013
MCCG is a very busy hospital. It is a level 1 trauma center. I worked the weekend night shift. Saturday-Monday 7p-7:30a. I was able to learn quite a bit from this facility, mainly how to adapt during trauma situations. Thinking outside the box was critical to being able to get diagnostic films on patients in difficult situations. I also was the surgery – more... tech for my shift so i was able to follow a trauma patient from the trauma bay, to the O.R, to recovery. This was a unique experience. Management was scarse at night, which made for a more laid back setting. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the work load. However, this helped me increase in quality and efficeincy at work. The most enjoyable part of the job was were my co-workers. We had a good working chemistry. – less
Utilization Review Nurse (Current Employee), Macon, GA – August 9, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: benefits, many coworkers are not friendly
A typical day is a stressful day. I have learned alot working there. Management is constantly changing therefore, it is difficult to comment on it. Morale is low at the present time; the company is experiencing financial hardship like many organizations. The hardest part of the job is taking on new duties everyday. Less staff--but more work. For the – more... most part, I like the type of work that I do. – less
Computer Operator II (Current Employee), Macon, Ga – August 1, 2013
Pros: great environment and very friendly co-workers.
Cons: health insurance for part-time employees is higher than for full time, changes in operational priorities in a short amount of time has caused personnel issues.
Working in the Information Services arm of the hospital is like working with most other companies. Although, working as a Computer Operator/Security analyst here has introduced me to a new set of regulations, programs and equipment than I experienced before.
In the three years I have been there I have seen how quickly policies, standards and direction – more... can change with new Management.
The people I work with are very professional and for the most part easy and fun to work with. – less
Point of Care Coordinator (Former Employee), Macon Georgia – July 26, 2013
Cons: ever changing regulations
I worked many different jobs over many years at the Medical Center, so there really wasn't a "typical" day for me. I learned much about many regulatory agencies from CLIA, COLA, JCAHO to CAP. I learned how to write policies and procedures. Maintain quality control and quality assuarance. Most enjoyable part of my job, was the pride each office took – more... in maintaining their part in the regulatory process and having great inspections! Hardest part, maintaing 26 physician offices! – less
Health Information Management HIM Specialist (Current Employee), Macon, GA – July 8, 2013
I enjoy working here at the medical center. I just wanna learn different thing. I have been working this job for 15 yrs and 9 mo. and its just no moving up, so i feel like Im ai a stand still. I love working with my co-workers.
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee), Macon, GA – March 26, 2013
A typical day at the Medical Center is busy. But me and my co workers work fluently together and well as team. The hardest part of my job is not being able to save a life. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to interact one on one with patiences and encouraging them that everything will be ok.
Fast pace and consumer oriented workplace with emphasis on quality, safety, and service
EVS 1 (Current Employee), Macon, GA – January 2, 2013
It is a good job to have while there are not many good jobs available. The job teaches you how to adhere to certain guidelines set by healthcare regulators and the health facility. It gives individuals the opportunity to work closely with others and build or develop communication and customer service skills. Management can simply be a matter of time – more... management and management of resources. The job is fast pace in some instances and requires the workers to carefully plan how to utilize their time to be more successful in their daily tasks. Most co-workers are willing to help when a fellow co-worker has fallen behind or are overwhelmed. The hardest part of the job is working with patients who may not recover or do not have a good health or personal outlook. The most enjoyable part of this job is to see a patient fully recover. I enjoy seeing the optimism and the hope they have. I also like to think that I may have played some insignificant part in some of their recoveries. – less
The management in the kitchen is very poor; the "chef" does not know how to handle his people, does not know how to plan a menu, has no idea how much food is being sold, does not know how to properly inventory/order, and is easily the dirtiest chef I've ever worked for. He also treats the dishwashers worse than dirt, when they are the most important – more... people in that kitchen, and do more work than anybody else. He fails to lock up the food storage at the end of the day, then wonders why the budget is thousands of dollars over. Between him and the Dining Services Director, they do not have a clue what goes on in that kitchen, and are quick to place blame on the employees for any fiscal discrepancy, without properly investigating. The only manager who is worth anything is the bistro chef. He is a cook's chef, and is one of the best I've ever worked with. He is a shining example of what a chef should be.
The servers are mostly kids still in high school. While that shouldn't be a problem, the dining managers to not instill in them proper work ethic, and thus the servers are usually horrible at their jobs, almost always on their smartphones before, during, and after service. Naturally, there are a few who are great, and I sincerely hope they move on to bigger and better jobs soon.
Carlyle Place is a retirement community for wealthier citizens. However, the food being made does not reflect that. It is uncommon for food to be made to order; rather, batch cooking is used instead for almost all entree items. Cooking to order should not be an issue here, as the number of residents who eat in the dining room on a nightly basis rarely reaches 150. Would you want to eat a precooked filet mignon? Neither would I.
As this is a retirement/nursing facility, one would think the health inspections would be especially stringent. However, the inspectors barely look at anything before granting a score of 100. I'm not perfect, and I've had my share of stupid sanitary mistakes. But Carlyle Place is full of them. The worst offense is the temperature of the food on the steam table. There are no lids to cover them while not in use, so naturally it gets cold fast. Also, the ventilation covers on the ceiling drip down into all the food, as they have never been maintained during my tenure there, and probably not before either. The health inspector needs only to look up and see that in order to shut the kitchen down until repairs are made. Several complaints were made, none were followed up on. I will not be the cook responsible for food contamination.
Anybody looking to work at Carlyle Place's kitchen should be sure to receive a tour of the kitchen during the interview. You should always know what you are getting into, and unless this is the only job you can get, I would avoid working here. – less
