Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide better pay and support for the staff. I also believe better perks would also help. Being promoted is hard, wish it was easier, especially if you worked for the company for so long. Bonuses should be provided if you work well.

What I like about the company

I think my boss i supportive and I have learned a lot from my work. It is definitely a learning environment. The facilities are great and everyone is nice. We work collaboratively for a goal.

What I dislike about the company

I believe that the pay should be better. Also more vacation time and better benefits would be good.

Suggestions for improvement

  • For a small town hospital it does not need that many CEO, CFO and directors along with a president!

What I like about the company

The people were friendly and easy going for the most part

What I dislike about the company

No annual raises and when given a raise it was like 1% for everyone. They are a very top heavy company with alot of people making over 6 figures and the hard working people get nothing and no raises and work is always piled on your plate and you are not recognized or compensated for it!

  • 02.Jul 2016
  • Employee

Company Culture

Adversarial and borderline abusive.

Support from management

Unprofessional, disorganized, rude.

Internal Communication

Poor. Never given proper orientation or direction. Extremely inappropriate when repeated requests were made for job purposes.

Gender Equality

Clear discriminatory behavior towards older workers, those not of color or like religion. Frighteningly biased and cruel toward patients and certain staff.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seniors may be hired but are mostly dismissed without warning prior to 90 day peobationary period completion. Hostile environment.

Career Development

None observed.

Overall compensation for your work

Union scale.

Office / Work Environment

Filthy, depressing office provided with no chair, telephone, basic supplies. I.e.; pens, paper, etc., or working computer. Basically designed for failure.

Environmental Friendliness

The Administration with a few notable exceptions were seemingly unconcerned with patient care and only concerned with billing matters. It was a hostile work environment in all possible areas.

Work-Life Balance

Union scale and hours however due to lack of training or functioning computers, telephones, etc. the workload was impossible to manage

Company Image

For the most part staff seemed to be divided and suspicious. Employees seemed disatisfied and frightened of repercussions. The image did not reflect the reality of the situation and unfortunately patient care suffered.

Job Security

None unless 90 day probationary period passed. No recourse or discussion.

Handicapped Accessibility

Very few.

Workplace Safety

Dirty, unsanitary, poor ventilation, lip-service training i.e. going over a policy quickly and employees forced to sign they'd been trained.

Inclusive / Diverse

They state they do however in actuality do not. Heavily biased against those employees not of color.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Professional, courteous, culturally competent, zero tolerance for abuse of any kind. Management and middle management who are seasoned veterans understanding the populations served, not children with the appropriate level of education, safe work conditions, equity among rank and file workers, some sort of checks and balances to ensure proper care of both patients and staff. No firing of staff without opportunities to correct mistakes which also involves making sure all new staff are provided the same training and adequate tools needed to complete job assignments. Avoid nepotism and cronyism.

What I like about the company

I had a horrible experience and would never consider returning or recommending it to others.

What I dislike about the company

Cruel, biased, inappropriate, inaccurate, culture of fear and unsupportive to those not "favored". Quite disappointing and dishonest.

Company Culture

Institution as whole greatly cares for their employees

Support from management

very effective management style in conflict resolution making sure employees are engaged and involved in process

Teamwork

Any other work places would always encounter conflicts. It's normal in any human interaction but as a whole the team in different departments and as a whole works professionally and well

Career Development

There could be more opportunity available to newer talented staff. There's a culture of promoting by seniority instead of seeing potentials of younger people specially men. If you look at the management it's majority women and white. Lacks diversity in nursing leadership

Office / Work Environment

Injuries are common for the job we do but it's comforting that the institution is trying to prevent this by heavily investing in equipments such as lifts in majority of the rooms to prevents injuries from lifting and boosting

Inclusive / Diverse

Diverse and inclusive bit not with career advancement in leadership position. See the mix of people on top and you'll get the idea

What I like about the company

The emphasis on cost effective quality care. Collaborative environment in caring for patients and their families

What I dislike about the company

Lack of opportunity for non white specially men to advance in management and leadership position
