Company Culture

While my colleagues and I get a long well, and work together like a family, we are all equally low on morale and are in agreeement of terrible management

Support from management

Management is never available when they are needed.

Teamwork

Often times management pits us against each other, using one to get information about another. Through this, many of us have banded together, but you can never be too safe.

Freedom to work independently

We often get messages sent about things that we have already done, as a reminder to take care of them. For the most part we a re left alone though.

Internal Communication

We are never praised for our sucesses but always attacked for an issue that was either out of our control, or overly critised for small mistakes

Gender Equality

I was told explicitly a doctor would not hire me because he was tired of hiring women since they had more home obligations and were more likely to take meternity leave or days off for "personal" things.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I do not have any personal experience with this as I am under 45 but my colleagues who are older do not seem to have issues.

Career Development

I have been offered positions verbally, but have not once seen the opening or been given the opportunity to actually apply to the positions.

Overall compensation for your work

Other hospitals pay far more for the title I have. I have also experienced the department changing my hours because they cannot or will not pay my over time. I am not paid nearly enough for the amount of time, effort, and work I do.

Office / Work Environment

Our office has not been renovated in 18+ years. Our office is small, with no windows, and very dusty, even after cleaning. There is little to no venitlation, and in winters it is freezing, and summers is is burning. Our carpet is old with pieces missing and large stains. Our chairs are old and outdated providing little support.

Environmental Friendliness

There are separate bins for recycling but it is not enforced. Just as well our department specifically has not taken measures to cut back on plastic and paper usage.

Work-Life Balance

We are always "on-call" even as administrative staff. We are called when we have taken a day off, we are not allowed days when we request for emergencies (regardless of if we are okay with not getting paid). We are not given nearly enough days for PTO, and they are not even separate form sick days.

Company Image

When I mention I work for this hospital many apologize to me, as they know it is not the best place to be employed

Handicapped Accessibility

This speaks for itself, although, I'm sure if it were not mandatory through regulation, the accessibility would not exist.

Workplace Safety

We have had recent construction on a different part of the building that subsequentially led to us having dus and particles from the construction brought into our offices. We all became ill, and it exacerbated asthma of some of my colleagues. There was also a threat of asbestos that was not told to us. They recently put an ED as well, and have not added additional security or warning, as we are private offices of MDS and were not used to having patients on the floors.

Challenging Work

We are often doing well out of the scope of our job descriptions, which is fine, but we are often under recognised for this. We also frequently work outside of regular hours, not being paid.

Inclusive / Diverse

Our opinions are often voiced, but very seldom are they heard, or acted upon. Often times management does the opposite of what was suggested.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should take more stock in their staff. There should also be competitive rates of pay for employees, and if not at the very least we should be compensated for all time we take to make sure things run smoothly. There should also be a separation of sick days from vacation days, as this is not clearly stated and often leaves employees confused about their lack of time...

What I like about the company

I had one manager in the Float Pool who was amazing. He wworked with his staff, and helped them when they needed. he made sure we were all taken care of, and allowed us the time we needed to take off for emergencies. He unfortunately was fired becaus eof his kindness towards us, and was told he was no longer the right fit. I also think that many of the departments have the staff that work together forming families, of their own, which is nice. we are often able to defend one another when needed, and we have a good laugh here and there which makes working here bearable.

What I dislike about the company

I believe that management should take much more interest in what the employees have to say. Our company seems to run only as numbers, and that duly effects the morale of the staff, and the care given to patients.

Company Culture

My colleagues of equal status are all very close. We treat each other like family, however, our management staff is sub-par

Support from management

They are never available when I need them

Teamwork

We work well together but it is not from the management. They often have us pitted against each other and try to get us to sell each other out.

Freedom to work independently

They often micromanage things that we already take care of. Our service messages are sent to us daily, but management sends the messages to us again.

Internal Communication

Managerial staff rarely communicated their appreciation with what the staff does , and we rarely have meeting about what is going on. Recently they were changing one of the rooms to an ED and did not alert us. We were bombarded with ED patients who came into our private doctors offices screaming at us. We had no idea, and management did not tell us.

Gender Equality

I feel men are more frequently offered the opportunities. I applied for a position and was told that my chances were slim because the MD wanted a Male as they had less obligations at home and wouldn’t need to take as much time off.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I do not have experience in this but most of m colleagues do not have to many gripes in this respect.

Career Development

I am told there are opportunities but rarely are they actually presented.

Overall compensation for your work

I am doing three different jobs working as an AA for two different doctors a as well as the surgical coordinator and don’t make more than 40000

Office / Work Environment

Our office is small, we have had issues with ventilation and has no windows. The carpet is old and stained an our office has not been renovated in 18 yrs, but the chairman has had his office renovated 3 times in the past year because he didn’t like the floor.

Environmental Friendliness

There are a few recycling bins, but they do not spare on use of paper of plastic things.

Work-Life Balance

We do not get enough time for sick days, on top of our vacation. If we have emergencies they are very quick to threaten us and not work with us at all. Many of us have young kids with little in ways of childcare and they do not respect us.

Workplace Safety

As mentioned before, they did not inform us of potential threats to safety, by putting an ED on our floor, when we are private practices. They also recently had construction and all the dust and such was coming to our offices and making us sick

Challenging Work

We often do well outside of our job description, including outside of office and regular work hours.

Inclusive / Diverse

We can share our ideas and so forth but it is very rarely ever listened to.

Suggestions for improvement

  • To have better management, for instance those who understand personal emergencies. Also to provide us with the ability to work remotely if absolutely necessary

What I like about the company

The only positive I have had was that my previous manager (who is no longer employed here) was very kind and understanding. He helped me during my maternity leave and was very receptive to my concerns.

What I dislike about the company

This hospital is all about numbers instead of people. I feel like they rarely care for their employees let alone their patients. Their is a lack of respect and understanding between management and employees. They do not offer us good pay or benefits for what we do.
