Work life balance was never considered. Work was expected to come first. Vacation was given @ discretion of director of nursing. Human resources didnt intervene. The union helped but an employee who fought to be treated fairly was labeled a trouble maker.
Suggestions for improvement
- Treat staff fairly, act as if they matter & follow the labor laws. Don't rule by fear & intimidation: you dont keep good workers that way.
- More involvement from HR, "Real diversity" & less patronage.
What I like about the company
The benefits. Healthcare, pension & paid time off.
What I dislike about the company
The lack of respect towards staff from nursing administration. It was run like a dictatorship. There was a very anti-American attitude. The facility is about 80-85% foreign workers & it wasnt easy being American working there. We were treated as trouble makers for expecting to be treated fairly & according to labor laws. It was the worst 5 yrs outof 23 yrs as a nurse.
