    I have been working at Baton Rouge General full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pros about this facility is that it welcomed me with open arms upon hire while trying to find a place to work closer to home, they understood my situation, and the team dynamic upon hire was amazing and very supportive.

    Cons

    The cons: First I want to start with thanking the Baton Rouge General for the opportunity to work for them and the experience I have gained. Upon hire like I said in the pros section great team dynamic great support, but things changed. I have now been working for the General for two years now going on three, and I have noticed not only a change in the work environment, high turn over rate, staffing situation, high nurse...

    Pros

    Work the entire hospital so we see a lot. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    The nurses we work with talk down to us often. Lazy coworkers who sit and do nothing while on the clock with no repercussions. Often not enough people scheduled at one time, so there is a big workload on just a few people who actually work while on the clock. Sometimes people show up late or just don’t show up at all. No opportunity for raises and we are already very underpaid for all that we do. We are contracted and...

    Advice to Management

    Please try to work with our contractor to give us some kind of raise or incentive because at the end of the day, we work at Baton Rouge General. I love what I do and where I am at, but am saddened by my experience here. This is an easy job but is made to be so stressful due to lack of willing employees who also don’t feel like they are compensated enough for all that they do or don’t feel even remotely appreciated.
