CNA

2.17

Company Culture

No encouragement or praise from management. They only point out faults.

Support from management

Inexperienced leadership.

Teamwork

Some great coworkers.

Freedom to work independently

there is some autonomy with this position.

Internal Communication

Very poor communication.

Gender Equality

This company is run mostly by women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Very political. Hire directors from the outside. Many unqualified but trained into their roll. Very top heavy.

Career Development

The political click will be promoted time and time again. Many CNA's have a background that is overlooked for chances of advancement. CNA's are more often than not treated with respect.

Overall compensation for your work

Company often hires workers with less experience and pay them much more than current employees who have been long servicing and valuable.

Office / Work Environment

Nice facility. Supplies are readily available most of the time.

Environmental Friendliness

They pretend to recycle and use styrofoam cups in at least one facility.

Work-Life Balance

They do not care at all about work-life balance and will allow you to work an infinite number of 12-hour shifts in a row if they need you.

Company Image

Employees will talk nice about the company regardless of their real feelings. This is not a reflection of the reality of how they feel.

Job Security

There is no sense of stability even though this company keeps taking over other hospices. There is no feeling of company loyalty.

Handicapped Accessibility

The main office in Barrington was built state of the art and does provide ease in access to building and has an elevator.

Workplace Safety

It appears this done.

Challenging Work

The work itself is less challenging than other CNA jobs, like nursing homes or hospitals.
The challenging part is with the previously mentioned areas.

Inclusive / Diverse

Yes, there is a diverse culture and it is supported by all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fix the things written above. Stop hiring unqualified friends into upper management positions. Listen - really listen with respect to the staff when they address needs.

What I like about the company

Working with the patients.

What I dislike about the company

Company is unorganized in accomplishing changes. Many meetings without decisions. They don't honor input from staff about the changes they are planning when the changes directly affect the work being done by the staff. They ignore the things that will make the job easier for staff. They often work the staff short-handed. They are disrespectful to staff. The bad culture started at the top.

Company Culture

It would be helpful if the managers weren't so overwhelmed with their own duties that they were available to lead their teams

Support from management

My leader seemed to hate her job and made it very clear that I was not her priority. She did not schedule me for three weeks during orientation and then became hostile on the phone when I finally was able to reach her. Numerous phone calls, emails and texts were not acknowledged or answered.

Internal Communication

Many emails, phone calls and texts were ignored by my PRN manager. The weekend managers were friendly, prompt and helpful tho

Office / Work Environment

PRN staff is expected to drive to Barrington everyday to pick up computers necessary for documentation, in my case and hour drive each way, and return it everyday due to severe equipment shortages. I offered to purchase and donate equipment to avoid placing a drain on resources, but that was declined.

Environmental Friendliness

Exceptionally weak training program and no organized training in the field after the first two weeks of In house training.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make equipment available to PRN nurses, as it is not optional to perform the duties. If a leader doesn't have time to be bothered by employees, avoid giving those nurses leadership roles Three companies merged, and there is caos, perhaps wait on new hires until things get ironed out

What I like about the company

They offered above average compensation

What I dislike about the company

Despite excellent compensation, I felt the excessive amount of time and miles to pick up necessary equipment and the lack of leadership was not worth it!
