a very nice place to work at, good people, fun atmosphere
PBX Operator (Current Employee), Houston, TX – April 29, 2014
The most enjoyable part of my job is dealing with people of every walk of life..When I can assist in any manner it gives me pleasure and oeace of mine. The hardest part is staying calm when there has been a possible death during a code I've just called. I've learned to not take anything personal and to stay calm at all times, that is the key to performing – more... your best. – less
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Birmingham, AL – April 24, 2014
Pros: compensation, co-workers, and benefits
Cons: under-staffed, poor mangement
A night at Brookwood Medical Center was very unorganized. We was always under-staffed. Poor management due to management being inexperienced and unprofessional. I always had to take care of a large amount of patients by myself
Intranet network engineering internship (Former Employee), San Ramon, CA – April 20, 2014
Daily interaction with the director of the department, organized strict deadlines and areas in urgent need of completion. Learned the inter-departmental demand for information sharing and transfer necessary to keep infection control constant in a hospital setting. People were friendly and constructive and showed great need and interest in the intranet – more... reconstruction project. – less
Biomedical Engineering Technician (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – April 20, 2014
Cons: low pay, few training oportunities
Management laid off due to healthcare cuts. 2 biomeds in large hospital working endlessly to keep up with the large equipment demands. Doing our best to provide safe effective equipment for our nurses, doctors, and surgeons to use on a daily basis.
Proactive, knowledgable, intuitive staff with great work ethic and sense of humor.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Homewood, AL – April 19, 2014
Pros: user friendly schedules
Cons: healthcare coverage
A typical day at work includes, but is not limited to providing patient care, emotional support, admission assessment and plan of care management, as well as administration of medication and keeping the patient milieu running smoothly. Although I have been a nurse for over twenty years, I find that I have learned to be more efficient and be a better – more... caregiver and patient advocate with time. I have the gift of gab and usually adapt to different people and situations quickly. I feel that I work well with other people fairly easily. The co-workers at the facility where I am currently employed generally work hard and provide a high quality of patient care. No two days are alike in the clinical setting; therefore, the most difficult part of the job is probably managing drastic changes with limited available staff. Hands down, the most enjoyable part of the job is working with a great team of people.The department managers are usually visible and readily available for the department. – less
Assessed patients. Gave out medications. Did admissions. Delegated duties to mental health techs as required. Used deescalating techniques with violent patients. Learned to multitask and communicate with both patients and staff members during good and difficult times. The hardest part of the job was finishing my duties while trying to beat the clock – more... in an environment that demanded multitasking while being emotional and physically demanding at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was the camaraderie among staff members. – less
Controlled over 6 different facilities on a daily basis. Kept all unidentified accounts at or near zero as possible. Requested refunds as necessary. Worked on many different projects as assigned. Kept in close contact with the facility Controller and Admitting Clerk. Posted Bank deposits, EFTS, ACH and Credit Card payments.
The company is great, but this varies greatly depending on your team.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – April 5, 2014
Pros: lots of free food, great interaction between c-staff and rest of company, growth potential, centrally located, great pay.
Cons: long hours, unrealistic expectations, some (not all) really messy and catty coworkers
My position as a receptionist really allowed me to get my feet wet in a multitude of different departments. I can honestly say that this is a great company. They are expanding every day and always looking for new hires all over the country. I really enjoyed most all of my coworkers and really enjoyed getting to interact with all of the guests and most – more... of the C-level staff. The opportunity for growth is there; permitting you don't have a power hungry, unprofessional, messy, and downright cowardly human being of a manager. If at all possible, avoid working under the Meeting Services or Admin departments. The director over these departments will belittle you, never admit mistakes and consistently expect way more of you than is humanly possible in very short amounts of time. Then the stressful time constraints will be blamed on SVP's instead of this person just admitting that they forgot to tell you to complete the task sooner (which happened VERY often). My final comment about this position is that if you do end up taking it, know that there is a severe lack of transparency, honesty and communication within the department. Wont get into detail as to how or why, but if these things are at all important in your job search, this is probably not the best place to be. – less
Dr. Tejani, OBGYN- Medical Assistant Externship (Former Employee), Los Alamitos, CA – March 28, 2014
Pros: free lunches when reps bring samples
Cons: unsanitary, messy office
So I externed here for my externship for school. Ugh, let me tell you, Dr. Tejani is not the most pleasant person to work with. She is so stern and timid, I hardley learned anything by her, but more of on my own. The medical assistants are pretty rude. One of them was filling up prescriptions on a downlow (with no doctor's approval) for another co-worker. – more... (It least dont do it infront of a student). Oh and its an OBGYN office. The tools used for (lets just say..) "down there" where old and rusted, even if they were cleaned properly and put in the autoclave. Not to mention everything was out of date, old school and I felt like I would never go there as a patient.
Its a mess, unsanitary and unprofessional. Not to mention Dr. Tejani is not a very good instructor as she had no patients for me as a student. Making mistakes where not in her book as I would get told as if I were a paid employee. – less
Registered Nurse (RN) (Former Employee), Birmingham, AL – March 27, 2014
Pros: brilliant, experienced nurses and physicians will assist you in developing skills.
Cons: hostile managers, no job security, mandatory overtime, poor scheduling flexibility, bullying from upper management
This hospital could be one of the best because there are some amazing nurses and doctors working there. The management issue is serious and it needs to be addressed to prevent good, experienced nurses form pursuing careers elsewhere.
Register Nurse on SCS/Med Telemetry (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FL – March 26, 2014
A typical day at work consist of applying nursing knowledge, nursing skills, critical thinking, and communication with physician and other interdisciplinary. I have learned to ask for assistance and maintain adequate time management. Management is helpful in ensuring tools and support are available to coworker are friendly and helpful. The hardest part – more... of my job is staying up all night for 12 hours. The most enjoyable part of my job is caring for my patients, providing competent and safe care. – less
