Pros: has a Starbucks inside
Cons: short-staffed, nurses stretched very thinly and expected to take risky patient loads, no communication between staff and administration, endless bureaucracy
This was without a doubt the most awful professional experience of my working life. I worked at the main campus ER, where they were on their fifth director in six years. I needed a shift reassigned in order to move, and I contacted three different administrators to accomplish this. Got no response from any of them, so I ended up having to work the shift I desperately needed off. When I first started, my PALS was on the verge of expiring. I contacted every known administrator in desperation for the typical 90-day extension offered to new nurses, as their PALS certification class had already occurred during my first month there. Again, no response from anyone, so I was suspended at the end of my very first month of employment. Once I submitted my immediate resignation, there were then MULTIPLE people contacting me, offering the extension I needed for a month at that point, asking me to stay at the hospital. There was no way I was remaining with an organization with such obvious disregard for its employees. How this place has magnet status is inexplicable to me. I wouldn't recommend this hospital to my worst enemy.
