Some units are better than others
Patient Care Tech (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALApril 20, 2014
Pros: getting paid, top notch surgeons
Cons: cutting annual bonus, top out pay, point system, new nurses, higher turnover rate than you think
In the beginning I loved my job and now it has become just a pay check...that barely pays the bills. I work on an extremely hard floor so it's safe to say I work from the time I clock in until the time I leave...many nights we barely eat or even have time for bathroom breaks. Some of the RNs are gems while others feel they are above wiping butts, bathing – more... and cleaning up blood! I have learned that you have to cover yourself because management isn't behind you at all. My position has help me decide to go back to nursing school so I can be a Bette nurse than some of my coworkers. The most enjoyable part of my job are my patients and clocking out! Certain units work with school schedules more than others...I'm on a floor that isn't so kind, and we are a teaching hospital so that's supposed to be priority #1... Also not kind to employees that have children...well my unit isn't. – less

Many incredible colleagues with whom to work. State bureaucracy can be strangling however.

Rapidly growing Academic Medical Center. Bureaucracy, political context and culture of the state can be frustrating and impede progress.

Great Company to work for. I learn something new pretty much daily. It is a educational facility and for the most part the staff is eagered to teach. The management team are always there whenever you have a problem, suggestion, or just need to talk.

HIM Tech (Current Employee), Birmingham, ALOctober 29, 2012
Pros: great chances to grow and move up in the department
Cons: schedule, pay
What I loved most about working here is the chances I have to grow in the department and move and do different things. HIM is a wide open field and you never have to be locked down during just one thing. I really like that. The most enjoyable part of my job is actually enacting with patients one on one and not behind a desk all day without enacting – more... with anyone. I really enjoyed the hands on aspect of my job. – less
