Support from management
You receive a lot of criticism for not meeting unrealistic productivity quotas. When you do meet them they criticize you for your turnaround times on exams.
The colleagues are in it together. Management points their finger down at you in blame.
Freedom to work independently
They are employing ever increasing spying technology on employees to monitor your every move (literally) with the new imobile system.
Communication drifts from infrequent to downright misleading.
Overall compensation for your work
I am a supervisor and make less than about half of the techs I supervise even though I am a working supervisor. When I tried to negotiate for more pay they offered me an additional $.10 an hour. Yes. 10 cents. Most techs I know who work in the same city make at least $5 more an hour for similar years of experience.
Office / Work Environment
The work environment is filthy. It has currently been a month since housekeeping mopped our floors, and I work in a patient care area.
You are constantly expected to work short and take on extra shifts. Then management comes behind you and makes you leave early if it a reasonable work load to "cut down on overtime", which will leave your coworkers short on help.
It's better than they deserve.
I have never seen a disabled person working in my workplace.
Exposure to infectious diseases. This year an employee was mugged in the parking garage in the middle of the day. The ER environment is like a minimum security open air prison.
Suggestions for improvement
- Perhaps they should spend a day as a worker and experience the environment they have created in all of its glory.
- Employee rounding tells you what you want to hear, not what people truly believe.
What I like about the company
That they match retirement money.
What I dislike about the company
They treat their patients and staff like line items in a budget and not people.
