    I have been working at Rochester General Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Holiday Pay Friendly coworkers, Doctors are friendly

    Cons

    VERY short staffed. Patient ratio of 7:1, with some very acutely ill patients. Shortage of Patient care techs as well. Pay is not great. Benefits are not competitive. I have been through 3 managers in the past year and 1/2 of working here. The turnover is awful. Staff burn out quickly and management does not seem to take notice. Low staff morale.

    Advice to Management

    They need to increase benefits. Make this a place people would like to work by offering competitive salaries. Needs a nursing union to protect nurses since this hospital does not protect their nurses.

    I worked at Rochester General Hospital for more than a year

    Pros

    You get paid on time.

    Cons

    Made a big mistake and accepted to do research in this organization. The people in the research department are nice and knowledgeable but the organization does not have a research culture. - No value and respect for medical research. They have no whatsoever understanding of research. All of the successful and renowned healthcare providers in the country heavily invest and support research, no wonder Strong... hospital (UofR) has dominated then in almost all the fields. - Worse healthcare benefits ever for employees - First work place, I had to pay for parking - nonfunctional HR;

    Advice to Management

    Instead of investing millions on TV and radio adds, invest a bit on medical research in your own organization so maybe you could actually help move the scientific field in illnesses forward and get a better recognition.
