Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – 4000 kresge way – August 30, 2018
I was a therapist there for awhile. The department Tends to be a lot of drama, which is allowed by management. I’ve personally seen newer people leave the department crying by being picked on. It’s a shame especially with the respiratory shortage that is going around.
Baptist Health Lead Central Sterile Tech (Former Employee) – Madiaonville – August 28, 2018
Stable employment. Not much support from management for some departments. Some departments have a high turn over rate because a lack of support and acknowledgement. Can feel understaffed on a regular basis.
Navarre Baptist is not what they "sell" you at the orientation. There have been 11 people leave in a 10 month period due to the prior management whom they moved to a different clinic. They hired a new manager BEFORE the job was posted online. They do not show appreciation for their employees and if you speak up you are deemed insubordinate even if you are not being challenging.

we start byt clocking in @ 7:45 for our morning meeting and by 8 am your on the phones and work straight till your lunch and then back from lunch till 5pm. I'm on the phone's 8 hours a day and no breaks unless you go to the bathroom.
one day out of the week, each employee gets to leave @ 3:45
Great place to start your first tech job, but the benefits werent great and corporate doesnt really seem to care about you.
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Fernandina Beach, FL – July 20, 2018
I learned a lot in the near 2 years I was there, but I felt underpaid for how hard I worked. Most of my coworkers were judgemental hypocrites, but I got by just fine. Management seemed a mess on more days than not. They took away our food discount, but not for the doctors. I wouldnt always get relieved for lunch or when it was past my shift and the tech on call was very late, up to 45 minutes and they were rarely reprimanded. About 2/3 of the OR team did work while the others sat on a stool on their phone. I did enjoy most of my surgeons, then again it wasnt about the people. It was about the work. I love what I do and I'm so happy I entered this field. Hopefully I can find a better company to work for.
Your work non stop, on your feet all day. Only one 30 minute break. Terrible management and bad taste employees. Very stressful, exhausting, damanding job. Supervisors always asking for others to tell others what to do, no direction of how things are done and who are suppose to do what. Very disorganized, always running out of things, always issues with something. Lots of stuff to remember and do in one shift, dont get paid enough for the stress this job is worth. No respect for others or recognize for a great job. No raises. Put up with bad employees and bad mouths.
Manager - Clinical Decision Support (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – June 29, 2018
I enjoyed working in Baptist health. All employees have their own work schedule. It a growing institute in the North east florida. Technology wise need more improvement in informatics that will lead to better quality care of patient and over all population health.
I think the overall residency program is good and Baptist is a nicely developed company. I think preceptor should be evaluated as teachers just as new nurses as learners to enhance success of both parties and ultimately the organization, patient experience, and overall hospital employee relation and success.
Great Experience for a career path goal and also sets you up for great opportunities

I really enjoyed my summer employment at Baptist. It helped prep me for the real world whenever it comes to applying for jobs. I want to pursue in the medical field by doing music therapy. Being around this hospital really helped.
Sr IT Engineer (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 11, 2018
The Baptist Health management is not in touch with its employees or staff. They are all about the money, and moving patients through the system. I was very sad to observer the additions of new Directors and managers with little knowledge, but in stead friends of other management placing them into the mix just to have them reorganize and teams and force many employees to leave unhappy and confused.
Management does not share it's visions, and instead just drops new ideas or projects into the mix without understanding the issues that it causes. They are unopened to new ideas from employees, and just push their addenda as the solution.
I would warn any potential employee to be ware, this is not a company you can trust a career to...
I learned many surgical procedures from the time I was there and the employees are very passionate about their career. The environment opened my eyes and assured that the medical field was perfect for me.
Management is terrible. It’s not what you know but who you know. You would think you were back in high school with the cliques of popular crowd and non popular crowd. Lies and backstabbing. Pay and benefits are descent.
