Most of the staff was friendly and supervisors did not micro manage, however the culture wasn't what I would call built upon trust and fairness.
Support from management
The supervisors don't really care about their employee's opinions. They jsut pile on work and expect it to get done in an unreasonably short amount of time.
Most of the staff keep to their own desks. When there were team meetings, it was mostly about lackluster topics that rarely required most of the staff to listen.
Freedom to work independently
I was not given the choice to decide which tasks I could and couldn't do. I had to do projects that weren't even part of my job description without my say in it.
There were meetings at least twice a week where everyone got to share updates, however most of the information was redundant and not necessary for everyone to listen to.
Most of the employees are women, however the men were able to advance faster and were given the tasks that the CEO personally favored.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Senior members were not seen as supported, rather they were mostly ignored.
Unless you are aiming to be a supervisor, there is no career advancement. You will work the same job for the rest of your life unless you, by some miracle, are lucky enough to snag an opening for a relatied job in the company but that is if the CEO likes you enough.
Overall compensation for your work
I was being severely underpaid while my workload got greater and greater. I was doing graphic design work and lots of other tasks while my pay remained almost at minimum wage. Salaries were paid on time, but there were very small bonuses, if any. There are ok benefits but they are nothing to be happy about.
Office / Work Environment
Software, hardware, and desk areas were perfectly fine and perfect for working.
The patient's ease of travel was always taken into account. All of the staff deeply cared about their patients.
Most of the work stayed at work, although there were times where I had to work on a Saturday to catch up on the huge workload.
Many of the employees were disgruntled and didn't have much that was positive to talk about the company.
The job is relatively stable and the company keeps trying to grow.
Accessibility is not a concern. The facility has an elevator and stairs.
Everyone has to be trained in OSHA, however accidents do happen.
My job was pretty basic and I did not feel accomplished even if I managed to finish all of the work that I had to do for the day. The work was trivial and did not measure up to the challenge I sought.
Inclusive / Diverse
Ideas were always taken into condsideration but rarely followed through.
Suggestions for improvement
- Listen to employee feedback, give raises when it is obvious that they are deserved especially for huge workloads and good work.
What I like about the company
I like that the staff are genuinely good natured people that care about their jobs and their patients.
What I dislike about the company
The supervisors and staff care more about their own jobs than listening to any input. Barely anyone there likes change, even if it would benefit the company overall. There is also no room for advancement, and even if you try there will be excuses to why it isn't possible.
