Reviews - What employees say

4.33 Employees say

Company Culture

There is a lack of diversity, which is unaccepting of those that do not fall within conventional family or cultural dynamics.

Teamwork

Rather than discussing things in a civil manner, certain employees are believed due to superiority rather than actual facts.

Gender Equality

Not all women. More pressure is put on single mothers to take on more than married ones. We're expected to pick up more shifts or work irregular hours.

Office / Work Environment

The thermostat isn't located in the tech area so it's often freezing

Environmental Friendliness

There should be more recycling bins and actual recycling service.

Work-Life Balance

Not enough employees to freely take time off

Company Image

It's a good company, but I don't feel accepted in my workplace.

Workplace Safety

We'd had adequate training on most of our equipment

Challenging Work

Inadequate staffing puts a bigger workload on each person within certain areas of the workplace. This doesn't give the best care for patients.

Inclusive / Diverse

Seniority seems to matter more

Suggestions for improvement

  • Activities to help employees learn more about each other or build empathy would be great. Anything that would improve communication between those less willing to try to connect with coworkers that they don't take the time to understand. It's also important to hire a wide variety of employees from different backgrounds (marital statuses, ethnic groups, races, creeds, sexualities, gender identities, etc.). The more diverse, the more welcome everyone will feel, including patients.

What I like about the company

Patient experience is of high importance here and we really care about our patients. It's also a not-for-profit hospital so it gives back to the community.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lack of diversity here that affects the workplace environment.

Company Culture

The culture at Parkview is great. Sometimes there are micro managers that grind my gears but overall it’s been a great last two years.

Support from management

Usually but I’ve had some rough patches. They were resolved without incident but still should never have occurred. I do not wish to elaborate further.

Teamwork

This statement is accurate

Freedom to work independently

I do my job with or without a team

Internal Communication

There are mass emails keeping employees in the loop

Gender Equality

I’m a woman and can vouch that there is equal opportunity here

Attitude towards older colleagues

Again, there are some employees in their 60s and 70s here.

Career Development

In terms of growth for my position or nurses, it’s slim to none.

Overall compensation for your work

I’d like more pay especially for what we do.

Office / Work Environment

I am comfortable even when we have aggressive or violent patients. The environment in terms of climate control is another story.

Environmental Friendliness

This is not the case so much

Work-Life Balance

On call sucks but I make it work. Upstaging is the worst for work life balance.

Company Image

I am a proud Parkview employee!

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes for all disabilities

Workplace Safety

It is safe and we are trained but we could be trained better.

Challenging Work

I work with mentally unstable folks at Parkview behavioral so it can be a trying time.

Inclusive / Diverse

Many diverse patients and coworkers

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay more and bring back incentive as time and a half plus ten dollars

What I like about the company

The whole experience has been great. I started on 8 hour shifts then moved to 12s when I needed to. Now I’ll be going down to PRN when I go into the counseling profession. I gave birth the month after hire and they worked diligently for me to get my pump breaks in. I love this job and am staying here as PRN versus leaving entirely when I go into counseling as a career simply because I don’t want to leave here.

What I dislike about the company

1. Micromanaging2. Up staffing and understaffed 3. Consistency to patients by al staff4. The building, although renovated, is falling apart

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve parking, I wish they would value experience over youth and not equate more education with being the best clinician.

What I like about the company

Parkview is our cities largest employer, is not for profit and does so much financially to support the communities we live and work in. They create a culture of encouragement for all employees to better themselves whether it is professionally or personally. Parkview encourages an environment where it is "excellent service,everyday", a strong emphasis on teamwork and supports their employees. I was so proud to get a job here over 20 years ago and Parkview made it possible for me to achieve my dream of becoming a RN,even providing me with tution reimbursement and nurse intern position prior to receiving my license. They provide for us healthy meal options in the cafeteria with vegan and gluten free options. They have provided for employees counseling for mental health issues free of charge. They installed mechanical ceiling patient lifts in every room of our over 400 bed hospital. The company that installed them and educated every employee about how to use these safely told us that Parkview was the first company in their history to have them installed in every room , proving they care not only about patient safety but employee long term safety as well.

What I dislike about the company

Sometimes they don't do a great job of rolling out a change and educating us well about it. Some of our managers and directors aren't as responsive to employee concerns. As we have grown very quickly there are areas that have been rushed and not as excellent as we have been used to.
