Pros: job security, co-workers/staff
Cons: staffing, management, pay
I love my unit-my co-workers are wonderful. staffing isn't excellent, so floating and unsafe nurse to patient ratios happen regularly. management isn't great-there's ALOT of management instead of staffing us appropriately. and management isn't clinically skilled, so they can't even help. the company considers living at the beach a benefit of the job, so they don't pay comparable to other medical centers. the CEO is the highest paid person in the county, so i believe his salary could go to the people doing the actual work. the benefits are okay. but they don't match retirement. they haven't made any layoffs, so job security is a plus. I work night shift so there's an almost $5 differential. no one ever gets a full 3% raise, because they believe we can always do better.
