Interesting/Satisfying work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I wish I did not have to pay to park.

What I like about the company

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.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would try and not have so many individuals there in the morning because it becomes too crowded

What I like about the company

I was having a real crap day when i got the news that my grandpa had passed. Instead of making me finish my shift, the manager let me go off early and grieve for his passing.

What I dislike about the company

I do not approve the obvious cliches in the department. It hinders teamwork and some employees feel left out or like they dont belong

The following perks were offered to me

Company Culture

I love my teammates, but we have an unmanageable workload which leads to a toxic environment.

Support from management

Have gone a significant amount of time with a split manager or no manager. Both would rather not be involved with issues that arise.

Teamwork

They could care less if we all hate each other, as long as management doesn't have to get involved.

Freedom to work independently

Virtually no leadership.

Internal Communication

A lot of corporate BS, compared to reality.

Gender Equality

Mostly female staff

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mostly younger leadership, must be a "cheerleader" type to move ahead.

Career Development

You can only get ahead if you know somebody it if you for the "cheerleader" type.

Overall compensation for your work

Every hospital system in the nearby areas still pay shift differential, when IU cut it. Also, at least two other systems I know of pay 50¢ more per hour than IU.

Office / Work Environment

Bad equipment, poor technology, and updates to technology without proper training for employees.

Environmental Friendliness

They recycle paper products

Work-Life Balance

They expect a lot, but give very little.

Company Image

They do have the best doctors, but they treat nursing staff as if they hold no value.

Handicapped Accessibility

No wheelchair bathrooms on the unit that I work.

Workplace Safety

Poor staying ratios which leads to patient and staff harm.

Challenging Work

The work would manageable if there were more staff to share the work.

Inclusive / Diverse

Opinions get shit down regularly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better staffing. Better incentives for long term employees. Quit telling staff that things aren't that bad and staffing isn't the issue. Cut salaries of all the bosses so that the employees can receive adequate compensation.

What I like about the company

I have learned a ton working at IU and my experience has made me a better nurse.

What I dislike about the company

Please value your employees, particularly your nurses and ancillary staff. We do much more than you realize and cutting benefits and staff are not beneficial to your company. Instead of telling nursing staff to "work with what you've got", try to improve their situation with better staffing, better pay, and pull the shift coordinators or managers to the floor for patient care instead of increasing the load of the nurses. You talk a big game about self care, it's hard to do self care if you're stressed at work everyday.
