Company Culture

I love my coworkers, but management is unsupportive and morale is very low.

Support from management

It depends on which unit you are a part of, either way the management is not very supportive and there is often talk about staff not working hard enough with what they have.

Teamwork

The corporation talks a big game about incivility, but there are no policies against it. And the aggressive and "uncivil" employees actually end up getting promoted. Management is like a mean girls club.

Freedom to work independently

At times you are treated like there's no management at all, then at other times you are treated like you are a child. It really depends on the manager.

Internal Communication

There's a lot of thank you cards and "good job" talk, but it feels very hallow and insincere.

Gender Equality

Mostly female nursing staff, but upper management is all old white men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees are not valued. Management spend a lot of time recruiting "new grads" and doesn't spend any time maintaining and or fostering growth in older employees.

Career Development

Unfortunately, there are very few opportunities for advancement unless you push very hard.

Overall compensation for your work

They pay less than other competitors in the area and your work is much more difficult. They stopped paying shift differential and lied staying that the other local hospitals stopped paying it as well.

Office / Work Environment

The computer software and internet are very poor making the job significantly more difficult. Machines are always broken down and there's little to no IT support.

Environmental Friendliness

There is recycling for paper products, but the facility has been fined multiple times for medication waste in the local water supply.

Work-Life Balance

They your a good work-life balance, but then punish employees who get sick and have doctor's notes or those who have extenuating circumstances like deaths in the family.

Company Image

I have learned a lot over the years and I have learned to work under fire. But I am not proud to work for a company that mistreats their employees.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are little to no handicapped bathrooms.

Workplace Safety

Big mistakes are often overlooked and the training of new employees is beyond sub-par.

Challenging Work

Very difficult day to day operations with heavy workloads and minimal support.

Inclusive / Diverse

Management tasks about new ideas and doing things in new ways, but they often stifle ideas and shut down upward communications.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay employees better and reinstitute shift differentials. Make staffing ratios better. Support and care for the employees. Stop taking bonuses and raises when the bedside employees are not making comparable wages.

What I like about the company

I have learned how to be an excellent nurse by learning how to work in the most difficult situations.

What I dislike about the company

Management is repetitively telling the staff that they can't do better and that it's their fault for the difficulties they face at work. Management tells staff that they aren't smart enough to do self care and that they don't try hard enough with the supplies they are given. Staffing is in shambles and admitting there's a problem, then trying to help be better than ignoring the problems.

Company Culture

There is a lot of complaining and passing the buck. Nobody takes responsibility for their actions. Management is not supportive.

Support from management

Either no management support, or micromanagement. There is very little constructive support from management.

Teamwork

Coworkers are trustworthy, but there's like to no intention from management.

Freedom to work independently

Either no management, or micromanagement depending on which department you're in.

Internal Communication

Most employees communicate well with each other, but management rarely shares successes with employees.

Gender Equality

Mostly female staff, with a lot of nepotism. If you're friends with managers, then you'll move up quickly.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mostly younger leadership, must be a "cheerleader" type to move ahead. Older employees are not offered management positions.

Career Development

Professional development only happens for those with friends higher up.

Overall compensation for your work

IU tells nursing staff that their pay us competitive, however, all other nearby hospitals pay significantly more.

Office / Work Environment

Old buildings with poor technology. Nurses are expected to manage a gravy workload with little to no support.

Environmental Friendliness

Minimal recycling efforts, but there is paper recycling.There

Work-Life Balance

Work is so stressful that a day off doesn't feel like a day off.

Company Image

IU has the best doctors, it is a learning environment and I have learned a lot. However, they treat nurses poorly and they negatively talk to staff to convince them that there is nowhere else they can go.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are no wheelchair bathrooms on the floor that I work.

Workplace Safety

Nurses are expected to manage a high patient acuity with minimal support. And employees who work dangerously are not reprimanded.

Challenging Work

The work would manageable if there were more staff to share the work. And if management was more supportive.

Inclusive / Diverse

Often opinions are dismissed for more of the "tow the company line" type of ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More nursing staff, pay existing nursing staff better, reinstitute shift differential for nursing staff. Embrace and build up future nurse leaders. Teach management to help and be involved without being an "absentee leader" or a monkey on your back.

What I like about the company

I learned a lot from working at IU Health, and I gained some life long friendships.

What I dislike about the company

Staffing ratios for nurses, non-competitive pay, bad management and or not existing management, educators and CNS who are basically useless, "old girls club" - you only move up if you're friends with someone in management.

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.
