Company Culture

Felt like at times people avoided each other rather than become a solid team but there were good moments teamwork prevailed

Support from management

I do like to be more independant so to me less is better.

Teamwork

They would surely encourage teamwork and relying upon one another in short bursts then allow for you to work on your own.

Freedom to work independently

I feel this is more out of necessity as they seemed to at times not be able to oversee employees actions due to simple volume of work and employees.

Internal Communication

I felt they should have been more open with their employees in terms of directions and less ambiguous

Gender Equality

I am a male so I would feel less qualified to answer here but I didn't notice any overt discrimination.

Attitude towards older colleagues

as I am 43 I did not seem to notice a bias based upon age and in fact they seemed to treat us all older and younger equally.

Career Development

Advancement opportunities seem to come around frequently enough

Overall compensation for your work

Could use more pay or even paid time off

Office / Work Environment

Sometimes too hot or cold but never so far out of control it would cause issues.

Environmental Friendliness

probably could be looked into as recycling is always important. There seemed a lack of urgency in this area.

Work-Life Balance

This was acceptable just your run of the mill 9 to 5. If you worked too much to me it was up to the employee to verbalise this.

Company Image

Not too proud but satisfied.

Handicapped Accessibility

no complaints here most health care facilities do this but can always improve.

Workplace Safety

Clean facilities and most areas kept clear of hazards if not it was up to employees to see to work place safety

Challenging Work

My work difficulty differs from day to day. Depending on how difficult a client wants to be with assisting with their daily routines of healthcare.

Inclusive / Diverse

Could improve in any work environment but it is important to have diversity in the health care field I felt as if they did ok here.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Lazy employees at times. This causes a culture to develop that is not conducive with healthcare. Instead of bosses looking to avoid conflict they should be willing to confront this lack of effort and let the employee know it is in direct opposition to our team goals. Sometimes they were just too passive in order to let the time pass.One policy I would improve upon is allowing for smoke breaks. There should be none for all employees even at a smoke free facility you can still leave for a few minutes if you smoke. This policy is unfair to those who do not smoke as they do not get the extra few minutes off.

What I like about the company

I myself have had some health issues and each time I felt like I would not have to ask to take the time off I would be given the time without question. This to me is extremely important. I had a nasal surgery a few years back where this occurred. I was given time off with no hesitation. Another instance I have seen multiple other employees receive the same treatment with their health issues. To me that says everything when not only are you treated well but those around you are also treated as well.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes they seemed in a rush to hire folks who did not seem to fit in the position they were hired. This can cause undue stress on the employees as well as the clients. This is probably my harshest criticism as to me they lacked an ability to filter qualifications properly. If you cannot have a solid team to work with they will fail. The clients will feel this as well and they are the last people you want noticing team issues.

Company Culture

My unit works together fabulously! When an emergency happens we really pull together and keep our patients safe

Support from management

None

Teamwork

The company does a good job of giving resources to help people interact with each other

Freedom to work independently

This hospital expects people to acknowledge if they feel they can’t do somethings

Internal Communication

Communication from hospital managers is slow but they are trying to improve with weekly email updates

Gender Equality

No complaints

Attitude towards older colleagues

Just as many 60+ workers as 20+ workers

Career Development

I can perform cpr on a newborn, assist in women related surgeries, I can be a charge nurse. So many opportunities

Overall compensation for your work

IU Health employers are known for under paying in comparison to the hospitals around them.

Office / Work Environment

The environment has everything I could possibly need

Environmental Friendliness

We have recycling available. I question whether or not it’s truly recycled...

Work-Life Balance

Because I work on a specialized unit, we have to take call shifts for our own unit so we work a lot and think about work a lot

Company Image

I love what I do

Handicapped Accessibility

No thoughts

Workplace Safety

Hospitals are short on nurses everywhere. And then you add that this is a speciality- sometimes we’re understaffed and that’s not safe

Challenging Work

We are a speciality unit that cares for pregnant moms and newborn babies in the hospital. That means we have special training to care for 2 different stages of life with our patients. It requires a personality that can be flexible and willing to learn quickly

Inclusive / Diverse

No complaints

Suggestions for improvement

  • More equal pay! The biggest thing I would change is pay

What I like about the company

I’ve made friends here from other units and continued to stay friends even after they have gone to do other things in different hospitals. I had to be on leave for an emergent family reason and my unit manager was understanding of the situation and held my job for me, even when FMLA denied my request. That’s someone worth working for- someone who understand life emergencies are real

What I dislike about the company

The low pay that workers receive is insane compared to competitors nearby. Easily a $4/hour difference and I think it’s a big part of why the company is short staffed

Inclusive / Diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • A BETTER PLAN FOR RETENTION OF SENIOR STAFF BY INCREASING VACATION TIME, EDUCATION BENEFITS, AND STIPENDS FOR STAYING TO TRAIN YOUNG STAFF. ALLOWING A BALANCE OF EXPERIENCE AND INEXPERINCED TO BE BLENDED FOR THE BEST PATIENT CARE AND SATISFACTION. BACK TO THE BASICS OF NURSING TO MAKE HEALTHCARE STRONGER

What I like about the company

THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO POSITIVES WORKING FOR THIS COMPANY THAT IS STINGY ON PAID TIME OFF AND EDUCATION FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES

What I dislike about the company

MAX 3 WEEKS PAID VACATION PER YEAR WHICH INCLUDES YOUR SICK TIME. MAX RN RATES $36. REDUCTION IN FORCE PERIODICALLY OF EXPERIENCED NURSES THAT COST MORE
