Suggestions for improvement

  • Larger unit. More staffing. A larger unit would make everything better in our department. More child friendly decor needs to be in place.

What I like about the company

I have learned a lot. We see the worst of the worst with trauma patients.

What I dislike about the company

We have outgrown our unit. We do not have enough space AT ALL. Pediatric ER is way too small for the number of patients we see.

Company Culture

Employees are being put against each other, no unity or team work. Lack of communication by management, and very childish behavior from management and leadership staff.

Teamwork

Co workers are being pinned against each other as the management feels they can rule the staff better that way.

Internal Communication

Horrible, lack of interaction with staff, only when demeaning staff or criticizing and chastising. No motivation toward employees to do a better job, using employees as mules and keep putting more work on them without any appreciation.

Gender Equality

It was all female staff without any men in the department that did any clerical work.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Only if it was leadership staff they were respected out of fear, not because they were good leaders.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile, discriminating, racist and demeaning.

Environmental Friendliness

No access to fresh air, office was too small to share with two other employees. It was either too cold or too hot.

Job Security

Whenever challenged duties, was threatened with lack of work if questioned too much.

Workplace Safety

Was threatened by other females with bodily harm, but not taken seriously since I am a white female and there is no belief that African American females could ever be racist. Was also bullied for being a foreigner and having an accent and my culture was made fun of and described as discussing.

Inclusive / Diverse

Worked in a predominantly African American department, was the only white female that got bullied and chastised for being the wrong color and "will never be part of the sisterhood".

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make a diverse department with more than just African American employees. Add hispanic, asian and other races please and people from other countries. My accent was made fun of all the time since I am a foreigner.

What I like about the company

NOT A THING

What I dislike about the company
