For every one rare moment the supervisors commend you, there's 5 to 10 scoldings you receive about what you did wrong. Also they control what color shirt you can wear under your scrubs. No gum. Cell phones in locker only. No lanyards. No dangling earings. No long nails.
Support from management
This place operates on a skeleton crew or less with no help from the leaders.
You have to maximize teamwork the best you can with so few employees.
Can say "we're short" all you want, but leaders will not listen and expect you to do the best you can with what you have employee wise.
Office / Work Environment
The equipment you work with is great. Nothing wrong with the tools you're given for your job. Just need more employees to help out with the work. But management loves to penny pinch and give excuses as to why they can't hire more employees.
They'll try to work with you on schedule hours. Then later they'll force you to change or else as needed.
I've never heard positive things from former employees about this place. Whether they quit or were fired. All hated it and couldn't believe they stayed as long as they did. The place operates with a "do more with less" attitude meaning pay for as few employees as possible and squeeze them to do all the work which is a lot at Baywood.
As I said before, all equipment and tools are up to date and new. Patient safety is what's very low at this place because of so much work and so few employees, lots of draws are very late. Which means results are very late. Which means patient care is very late. It's all a domino effect starting with the skeleton crew.
You'll feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day when you and your shorted staff have made it through the rush. No thanks to upper management. Unfortunately you'll hear from upper management about all the late draws instead of hearing "atta-boy" from them for getting through the day short staffed.
Inclusive / Diverse
Yes they are very good at listening to anyone and everyone. But again, no matter what religion, race, or sex you are: they will not listen to your request for more help.
Suggestions for improvement
- Hire more staff and concentrate on getting all draws on time every time just like they're slogan says which is a complete lie at this place.
What I like about the company
I liked the employees I met. I liked the benefits. I've been told it's the best from my dentist and optometrist.
What I dislike about the company
ALWAYS short staffed and they will never fix that problem no matter what they tell you. When it comes time for a job review that influences your raise, they have it set up to nickel and dime you each time. You can work there for 5yrs to finally get a full $1 raise ( .20 cents each year = $1). Since they are always short, you're forced to wear several hats a day. Sometimes you don't even realize your hat has switched and you get chewed out for it.
