Company Culture

I have been with the company for 10 years now and I could not be happier about working for my employer. Their is such a wide variety of people it is great for diversity and to get to know and be a part of a real team

Support from management

Over the years I have become closer with management and they go above and beyond not just for me, but for our entire department.

Teamwork

Many of the yearly goals, especially in our department is to work well with others, to reach out and be a good team. We can only be successful working together and it's a team effort and not just one person that add to the success of the building.

Freedom to work independently

Once trained employees are trusted to work in an office or remotely which takes a lot of trust that work will get completed as it should be.

Internal Communication

I feel we receive more communications than needed at time, but there are always times when something is missed.

Gender Equality

I have not encountered any issues with women in the workplace.

Attitude towards older colleagues

In my department there are many older employess and they are treated with respect and not pushed out of the company. It's nice to know they aren't hoping for everyone to retire right when they can

Career Development

There is room for growth if I so choose to move in that direction.

Overall compensation for your work

I cannot complain about my compensation. I am well taken care of when it comes to payment.

Office / Work Environment

I have a decent office space, with my own cubicle and that is more than comfortable.

Environmental Friendliness

I know we recycle within our buildings but I am not positive on the organization as a whole

Work-Life Balance

My company strives very hard to stress the importance of the work/life balance. I am happy with how they allow us to balance our home lives with our work schedules. It has been a tremendous help with having kids and anything else that happens to come up.

Company Image

I am so happy to be working for my employer and completely love my job.

Handicapped Accessibility

Being in healthcare I believe all the buildings are handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

I am in a secure building and we have security that monitors all buildings.

Challenging Work

A lot of my work is repetitive but new policy and new software make it challenging on how I am able to do my job every day and I enjoy the challenge. It keeps work interesting.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is stressed and one of the key goals for my company. It comes up in all goals and key focus points throughout the entire company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't have anything specific I would like to change aside from what was mentioned on the past screen. Less expensive portion to pay for healthcare and to let us accrue our Paid time off, but put a cap on in instead of not allowing it to roll over. Don't offer a pay out.

What I like about the company

My company recognizes caregivers for going above and beyond. They share positive stories with the organization to inspire and show everyone the positive. I feel I am recognized as a caregiver by the entire company, but also my by direct manager. I don't feel like what I do doesn't matter. I am extremely happy to be working for my company and even if my direct position goes away, I would look for another within the company to stay right where I am.

What I dislike about the company

They are currently reworking our healthcare and paid time off. I prefer the system we are currently using, but with a merge they are trying to make it more of an even balance of what each company was using. It will take away the amount of paid time off received as well as it not being rolled over. The health benefits, I thought would go down in cost considering we have added an exponential amount of employees, but the costs keep going up.

Suggestions for improvement

  • With the company being so large, I cannot speak to the specifics that need improvement. Possibly building maintenance to some clinics but other than that, we seem to be doing well.

What I like about the company

Many of my co workers are so kind and generous. Getting to know new people is a bit scary but they are so welcoming. The upper management and even high associates are never rude or inconsiderate to people lower on the totem pole. The organization knows in order to function they need every single person. I am proud to work for my employer and although every job has it's good and bad days, I am so happy with my work and the work I actually do. I have no desire to seek new employment and hope I get the opportunity to retire from this establishment.

What I dislike about the company

I do not have any particular parts of the company I disapprove of. Each area and department works to it's own standard. In my department I would wish for more opportunity for everyone to have the chance to work remotely, but it's not a deal breaker for me.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It is not uncommon for people to realize as adults that they have not gotten to the place in life that they thought they would have reached as children. Achievements are much easier to plan than they are to execute. This is known as a mid life crisis if it happens in your late forties or early fifties. With the faster pace of life, this can happen in the mid twenties instead at which point it is known as a quarter life crisis. Confusion an discomfort cant take place at any time however. No matter the nature of your crisis or when it occurs, there are methods that you can employ to make significant changes in your life for the better. This essay outlines a few of these.treat your body kindlyMost of us eat things that we know we should not and exercise to infrequently. It is simply easier to eat junk food on the go so we opt not to cook our own meals. This leads us to ingest many harmful preservatives which can sicken us over time. Consuming sugary drinks in large quantities instead of water also can help us become obese. By becoming more aware of what we ingest and following the rules we already know, we can have much more energy and even improve our moods. The other side to this is getting enough of both exercise and sleep. If you can treat your body as well as it needs to unction at its best, you will already experience some of the positive changes you seek.spend more time with people who inspire youIf there are negative people in your life, rid yourself of them or avoid them as much as possible. They will make you think that your dreams are impossible to attain which is by no means true. Instead, find people who encourage you to do great things if not by their words by their examples.keep learning new thingsStagnation is never a good sign. Things will always change around you and you must learn about them in order to keep informed. Learn a new language, learn how to code. Learn a new word every day. Little changes may seem minor but if you pic up the habi

What I like about the company

The company that I currently work for has allowed me to maintain a decent work home life balance by allowing my to work part time and still help support my family. I am currently in a form of job sharing with another nurse that allows her to only work 2 set days so that she can manage a proper work life balance as well, and have a set start and off time with regularly set days in the week as well so that she only has to have child care 2 times a week, I work the other three days a week which allows me to also have a set schedule with designated start and off times which can be very hard to find in the nursing arena. Having a set schedule like this allows me to manage my household better as well as set designated time for cleaning, laundry, doctor appointments as well as time to go to the gym, make meals, meal prep and the alike. Also because the company is so large it can afford individuals the opportunity to move into different positions or relocate accordingly to their individual needs. However if you are switching roles within the company if the job requirements are the same then you will not be allowed a raise, it's only if the requirements are different that you even have the possibility to either make more or less, so it's a way that human resources has been able to keep your pay at a smaller level even though you may have numerous years of experience. Their is also an onsite cafeteria that allows you to set a certain amount of money every two weeks that CV an be taken out of your paycheck and that way you can purchase food with your employee badge rather then carry around alot of money, their is also food that is brought in from a local organic and natural grocery store that is sold for individuals who may have gluten allergies or for those who wish to eat an all natural or organic lifestyle. This type of food is also made available for the public to purchase as well if they would decide to do so. The company has also put in a Starbucks which some of the pro

What I dislike about the company

While the company that I work for may have some good qualities they also have a few not so good qualities. For the most part the company is run like a giant corporation and there is very little personal touches or the idea or feeling that the company cares about either you personally or has real interest in you as a person. You usually feel like you are just another cog in a giant corporation wheel. My manager can often seem very disconnected, they may not hhhave much of an idea of what is going on in the department yet decisions are often made that affect the workers. And getting into management is nearly impossible if you aren't willing to work full time. So while they advocate that they are good with a proper work life balance you are really only allowed to work in a lesser role if you want to actually be home and take care of your family, and work only part time. So really while they may claim to offer opportunities of advancement those opportunities are really only available to individuals who want to make work their lives, rather then having work sustain or allow them to maintain a certain lifestyle. However big changes are supposedly in order as my current company has just merged with another large company but it seems that this merger will only seem to benefit the share holders while for the rest of us it seems that they will be a monopoly on healthcare in southeastern Wisconsin as well as parts of Illinois. This is of course my
