    Pros

    Easy to move up in the company if you are willing to stay there for a while. The HR team works really hard for employee engagement and there are several opportunities year round to get involved. The new additions of the hospital have also been great!

    Cons

    Pay could be more, but it is decent for the area. Friendly environment facilitated through the Gallup survey's that employees are required to take. Parking can be some what annoying.

    Advice to Management

    I was fortunate to see my manager constantly and that aiding in me exceeding. I always felt that I was apart of the team.

  2. I was able to apply and advance my skills at this job.

    Pros

    Facility is growing and has a new hospice unit in the works for 2016. Patient ratios were reasonable and nurse managers were helpful. Has tuition reimbursement available. Workout facility is very nice.

    Cons

    Company insurance is a joke and constantly changing. Just dropped BBBS patients so should be interesting.

    Advice to Management

    Have more incentive to move to Abilene if not from this area.

    Pros

    There are a few outstanding employees. The hospital's reputation.

    Cons

    Many employes are slackers, bullies, or sluggishly preparing for retirement.

    Bully coworkers and managers. Don't be fooled by the bullies who cloak themselves with a cross, scripture, and in church attendance. They can be surprisingly cruel.

    Many have worked here for 25+ years and aren't interested in considering other approaches. Close-minded. They haven't worked anywhere else to see other approaches used.

    Closed to outsiders. If you aren't from here, don't look like them, dress like them, talk like them, or eat like them, you are viewed negatively.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Get out on the front lines periodically to see how work really gets done. Don't waste time asking for suggestions for improvement if you don't plan to do anything with it.

    Pros

    Easy to get in. Hours are decent.

    Cons

    Unless you know someone you will never advance in this hospital. It's about who you know and not what you know. Politics play a huge part in this job. Interviewing for advancement doesn't mean a thing unless you know someone. If they "like" you, you're in. If not, you're screwed.

    The pay is also the worse when it comes to the medical field. They spend so much money on the hospital but yet, cut back overtime opportunities, pay, raises and bonuses. Short staffed, constant call-ins and hiring the wrong kind of people make this a difficult environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to ask for opinions then take them into consideration. Train your employees well so they feel comfortable working. Throwing people out there isn't going to benefit the patients or the hospital. Your patients are people not a number. This hospital has fallen far from the family environment. Greed has taken over and this is why people look down at this hospital.

  11. Good atmosphere, bad pay.
