      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 worked at Baton Rouge General full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      Close relationships with co-workers; easy facility to navigate; lots of experience gained working as a nurse out of school.

      Cons

      Some RN's in management positions are not qualified; the nurses best interest are sometimes overlooked and they are overworked to accommodate upper-management demands that will earn more money for the hospital.

        Good way for new nurses to learn and gain experience. Benefits are good as long as you use a BRG provider/facility. Employer match 401k

        Cons

        Management does not care about nurses or any of the bedside staff. Staffing is often unsafe and concerns about this fall on deaf ears. Unit managers are often fired, so they never advocate for their nurses because they’re always trying to please administration for fear of losing their job.
