Productive workplace
Network Engineer (Current Employee), Columbia, SCApril 6, 2015
The IS Department is no nonsense. It is currently managed by local directors who are supervised by a CIO and a CTO. Employees are on-call for at least one week per month and may have to cover for team members when they are unavailable.

Work/life balance can be improved in light of the PTO structure.

No Telecommuting is available, except on a case by case bases (like if you have sick dependents).

Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee), Columbia, SCFebruary 21, 2015
enjoy my coworkers, they are my second family.
The best part of working here is the patient satification.
The worst part is like all hospitals is being so short staffed.

Unless you want to constantly worry about job security dont bother
Professional (Former Employee), Columbia, SCNovember 27, 2014
I worked for Providence and for it to be run by the Sisters, I think they would be aptly disappointed in what the hospital has become. A majority of the management is not qualified to be in their positions, and the overall culture and atmosphere is not only depressing, but everything is swept under the rug.

If you are the type of person not to look the other way when things are not being done correctly, do not even bother working here. They prefer employees with no morals.

The Clinical Educator Position is one of the best positions I have ever held.
Clinical Educator/Simulation Coordinator (Former Employee), Columbia, SCMarch 20, 2014
The education department is a very close knit and wonderful area to work. The only reason I left is because my position was eliminated. The director tried everything to keep us all but was unable to. Job security and advancement are not so good.

The RESPIRATORY MANAGER IS A HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PERSON
Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Columbia, SCMay 9, 2013
Pros: salary
Cons: incompetent management/ no training/ development
Horrible Respiratory Manager! STAY AWAY!!!! Seriously, this place is the black hole. Not a good place to start working right out of school if you need development/ training. The salary is on par with the other hospitals in Columbia, but it is not worth the pay. Lots of turn over in the Respiratory Department, and this is due in large part to a manager that is incompetent, has no clue how to encourage and train new employees, and promotes a negative culture.

Unable to walk the talk
Team player (Current Employee), DowntownApril 3, 2013
Pros: health and wellness
Cons: inconsistent with policy. turnover is high. training is poor. paid time off is not good. fake
Great mission vision and values, unfortunately so few buy into it, I found it becomes almost impossible to do. There is a great need to eradicate subterfuge. Poor training for new staff.

Communication among management and staff could be better.
Social Worker (Former Employee), Columbia, SCOctober 15, 2012
Pros: pay is okay. many caring staff for patients and each other. caferia on site.
Cons: poor paid time off, felt married to job, overtime without pay, lack of work space, no ceus for sws offerred.
I worked at this hospital as a professional. Communication sometimes was often poor between clinical management and staff. Managers needed to use their role as more of an educator and trainer rather than be punitive. Some of the units were chaotic and the work flow was not consistent. Majority of the staff were friendly and helpful but there were a few "butts". The case management director (often a nurse) position was a constant turn over which proved to be inadequate clinical oversight for the case managers and social workers.

I've worked at this hospital as a licensed professional. The income is okay but the paid time off (PTO) sucks. Some of the units are chaotic and some of the supervisors do not communicate well with staff. Supervisors should use their role as educators for their staff and not look for reasons to be punitive towards them. The social workers don't seem to have consistant supervisors with the directors fast turn-over. It appears that they do not have much clinical oversight. Most of the doctors and staff are wonderful people but there are a few "butts".
