Supervisor (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – October 25, 2015
I worked in facilities for 2 years and then went for another opportunity. Anyone can pick apart their workplace be it long hours, not nice boss, etc. My main focus was with my fellow employees. I supported them and they supported me. Now obviously not everyone participates. The culture is that of family. In large hospitals, it is not as personal. It is a different enviroment to work in, especially if your use to working in large, inpersonal, and culturally stiffled work places. I will never forget St. Pete Gen and how much I felt included. It was a memorable experience.
Co-workers, working culture, food (GO Gus)
Every place has its cons, I found nothing extraordinary.
RN (Current Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – November 4, 2017
Management does not manage. They listen and do nothing about issues. Staff controls management in my department that are not even nurses.. Management only worried about their bonus . Staff sent home on a daily basis while contract people are working. There was no orientation only 2 days of class and then put on floor like a traveler. Nurses are not respected by physicians!!!! Our department has no coverage for sick time or vacation days. On call is used for scheduled cases rather than emergents
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – September 15, 2017
I was hired for 2days a week. Those 2 days were defined when I was hired, then changed to calling me every afternoon to see if I was going to work the next day or not, It was like I was on call for them everyday. Never could make plans for the next day. The team members were very "team" oriented though and enjoyed working with them.
Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – April 20, 2016
There are some truly wonderful and caring employees there. It takes a special person to thrive in that atmosphere.
Unfortunately, there is a major organizational culture problem starting at the C-Suite and into the Physician leadership of the organization. Senior Leadership is effectively invisible and out of touch with the day to day realities. Outdated equipment and technology is the status quo. Staffing is a major concern and Nurse to patient ratios of 11:1 have happened. A single PCT to a 56 bed unit? That happens too. In a one year span nearly 100% of the Leadership roles turned over, that should tell you something.
Physician engagement is horrifically low and Physicians intimidating or being abusive to staff happens all too often. As a result staff is reluctant to call Physicians with important updates and patients suffer for it.
