Company Culture

FSSA encouraged supervisors to find fault with employees so that they would give good raises only to a few. Politics and favoritism made getting the good raises nearly impossible for most employees. It also fostered some ugly competitiveness with certain employees.

Teamwork

In general, the nursing staff and supervisors were pleasant and encouraging. Most PA's work as a team well.

Career Development

There was no tuition assistance or other helps for an employee to continue their education. However, the nursing supervisors would often be more flexible with an employee's schedule if they were attending university classes and their major was related to the hospital's interests.

Job Security

Job security was a problem because patient behavior could be challenging to deal with and management would side with patients unfairly which could cause an employee to be fired quickly.

Challenging Work

Working with psychiatric patients is definitely challenging. We got plenty of training to deal with problems. It could be very interesting at times.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Encourage all employees with a fair pay-raise system that is positive in nature. That promotes teamwork and discourages competitiveness.
  • Make tuition assistance part of the benefits program so employees are encouraged to make a career there and feel like there is a way to be upwardly mobile for those who are ambitious.

What I like about the company

I liked the starting pay and the benefits. I liked working with the nursing staff.

What I dislike about the company

I did not like the atmosphere of competitiveness fostered by limiting the best pay raises to a certain few. Felt it was unfair. I volunteered for training that doubled my job responsibilities to be a QMA. There was no pay increase for doing this. When raise time came around they used an minor excuse not to give me the big pay raise (10%). Since I was working doubly hard, I felt this was grossly unfair. Then I heard they gave the raise to another new QMA and to an employee who was nearly fired twice for a hot temper and mean-spirited behavior and who was prone to giving me a very hard time.

Also, there was mandatory overtime when the hospital is short-staffed and this can be difficult when you are working 12.5 hour shifts.
