World-renowned not-for-profit organization
Support from management
Management cares about our issues & concerns so they can ensure positive experiences for all patients.
Teamwork is essential in my workplace
Freedom to work independently
Each employee works very independently, with only occasional reviews unless required more frequently
Undesirable feedback from caregivers is rarely acted upon by those higher up in the company
I believe it's fair to claim that the majority of nurses & the majority of hospital employees are female. Women can be found in roles spanning from entry level positions up to the corporate teams
Attitude towards older colleagues
Older employees are offered opportunities to continue working until they decide they want to retire. Often, retired caregivers will spend time volunteering at the hospital, as well.
Working in an entry level position, myself & several coworkers have plans to complete additional education & acquire certifications to advance into different positions within the company
Overall compensation for your work
My entry level position does much of the same work & is exposed to all the same risks as other medical staff, yet we are paid just over minimum wage. However, benefits are unbelievably great.
Office / Work Environment
Hospitals must be in pristine condition to operate, so I would hope this is a given! (And it is)
Practices recycling, actively engages in environmentally friendly activities.
Medically licensed staff may have the option to work 3x12hr shifts or 4x10hr shifts per week
Great company, known for quality care, treats employees well with unmatched benefits, currently "on the frontlines" in the COVID-19 Pandemic
Accommodations for patients & caregivers throughout the hospital(s)
Many, many, many safety trainings for all roles to follow
Technical & critical, but entry level
Inclusive / Diverse
There has recently been a push to hire more male nurses to diversify the team(s)
Suggestions for improvement
- More attention to what caregivers have to say, regardless of how big or small an issue they feel it is.
What I like about the company
Love the opportunity to care for others - unbeatable benefits, extremely stable job, meaningful work.
What I dislike about the company
Management could be more responsive to caregivers' input & concerns, especially those focused more on caregivers than patients.
