Being a longtime employee for Brandywine, I have been through many different changes and management throughout the company. I can only hope it improves more.

Lack of support for management
Poor culture of staff, when brought in to change the culture, staff retaliated and HR involvement was almost similar to that of a union. Management not supported at all but expected to implement changes. PA is an at will state, so there is no foundation for any change to be made if employees do not wish to change.

Lacking on multiple levels
Brandywine Hospital is lacking in clinical resources, clinical education and competent management. Promotions are based on who you know and the opportunities are kept to a select few.

too much change
A lot of change and turnover. Never enough staffing causing a lot of stress. Raises not enough/often. Not enough training. A lot of employees with bad attitudes.

challening and low compensation
Typically a day at work would include maintaining the flow of the unit or units depending on how many staff were available, sometimes bouncing between two units was required. Being aware of any potential admissions coming and then prepare for the patient arrival.

Fun place to work close by
Location is great if you live locally but it’s so small their is not many opportunities available especially if you don’t have a nursing degree . Their are not many educational opportunities for the CNA s . It gets pretty boring once you learn how to do your job an we’re not cross trained to do other jobs on the unit which would definitely be a plus. The only other departments you can switch to as a CNa are the mental heath department or the Emergency department their is no maternity department oh an Med Surg which is pretty boring an again not much of a learning experience. On the other hand everyone who works here is like family an that definitely is a plus . Just wish their more educational opportunities for the aids. Great for someone who is looking to gain experience in acute care .
Pros
Close by
Cons
Short breaks low pay

Good start to my nursing career
Received a lot of experience starting here, I floated on many different floors but it gave me a good foundation. I received a lot training prior to starting, which helped being a new nurse.
Pros
training
Cons
night shift

Lack of motivation dont feel like the pay is reasonable.
It is the worst corporate company I have ever worked for. I would not recommend this job to anyone. But I will say the schedule is the best part of it. I don't work past 7 o'clock pm

Positive and great work inviornment
I observed a great team of people that set their pride in helping the clients feel appreciated while having to deal with their situation. The family support was very good and, the relationship with the staff helped the process while having to follow their doctors orders, also the staff worked closely with the nurse and staff to provide the best care possible.
I was proud to be apart of this great group of people and would tell anyone to apply for a position here at the hospital.

Best job I have ever had!
I loved this job. I worked in Sterile Processing for five years. I learned so much in that time, I hated to leave! The hardest part of the job was probably the heat of the autoclaves. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a nurse or surgeon with what they needed.
Pros
learning
Cons
long hours at times

Not great.
Management was not supportive. Had to work night shift while vomiting - called management and they did not call back at all, not even the next day. Co-workers were great but management left me sour.

company has a lot of flaws
The company does not take care of their employees. Sometimes they do not follow labor laws. too many times they put employees in harms way. The only positive is that the medical benefits are excellent
