What I like about the company

The company provides great living wages to its employees. The benefits are also great. Nice work/life balance, excellent training program, the job itself provides great personal satisfaction knowing that I am making a difference in people’s lives, even though it’s not on a clinical level. I feel as if everyone that works in healthcare plays an important role in the lives of our patients.

The company seems to turn a blind eye to employees being harassed and bullied

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think taking more time to hire people who have a strong work ethic and being clear about the expectations in the work place would hopefully deter people who don't fit in the culture. From personal experience, employees in my workplace become frustrated because there are very few employees trained to meet the specific requirments of the workplace while other employees aren't being held to the same deadline of getting the training.

What I like about the company

Since joining my company I have been able to grow in my career both personally and professionally. I have met wonderful people whom I love working with and who help me get through tough days.

What I dislike about the company

I think clarifying management roles would help the staff who might not see what management does behind the scenes and then gets angry about it.

Internal Communication

every morning we had a huddle

Career Development

not for a surgical technologist like me

Work-Life Balance

Hours were't very flexible

Workplace Safety

orientation was very helpful with that

Challenging Work

It was surgery

Suggestions for improvement

  • give feedback to employees on how to improve before firing them

What I like about the company

orientation was very thorough. plenty of free parking. even though my time there was short lived, i enjoyed my work as a surgical tech. it was very challenging yet rewarding

What I dislike about the company

they really didn't give me a chance to improve, then fired me without ever giving me feedback. it was heartless and unjust and i'll never forgive them

  • Old way of operating seemed to work great. I'm not sure how it's going now or if the changes benefited them. But if they ever went back to basics I'd love to work there again

What I like about the company

I worked there for 3 years and loved it, I only left because a merge happened and they wouldn't allow me to stay part time any more (I have young kids). Pre merger it was the best company I worked for and I miss the office as well as my coworkers all th

What I dislike about the company

I think financially they are too focused on upper management instead of what is beneficial for the organization or the worker bees. It's appearent to all employees that we were just disposable in their eyes. Which was unfortunate because we worked reall
