Suggestions for improvement

  • I would set up on site training for employees before they ever sat in a position to work

What I like about the company

I liked the fact that we were in a fairly decent building that was located right next to the interstate. Sometimes our supervisor would pay for our lunch but he expected us to work through it while he and the nurses would sit in the kitchen and eat. I really don't have a lot of positive things to say

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of them putting employees in positions without properly training them and then expect them to perform like the person that just left the position who had been there for years!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Making the employees be more involved in changes. Changes happen without even a mention of it. A more work friendly environment for both shifts.

What I like about the company

I have a good team environment and patient are put first. My team members really care about our patients out comes. Our night shift supervisory staff is very hands on and very supportive.

What I dislike about the company

I feel upper managment is more concerned how to save money than making our work environment capable of doing what is asked. Out dated equipment is very challanging to do a job in our present time. Technology can help make work flow go much more smoothly than trying to cost save at every turn. We don't have to have the newest equipment but at at least not the oldest.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior management keeps bringing in younger workers to replace the more senior employees and they know nothing about the long term healthcare industry.

Career Development

1st ten years were good but then leadership changed:

Suggestions for improvement

  • They do not recognize or reward talent. It has become a good ole boy network.

What I like about the company

Pay was good.

What I dislike about the company

Pay was good but people were promoted just because they were liked not because of knowledge or skills. Benefits were below average. Senior management was more worried about their own stock value than any employee’s well being.
