Diversity is the strong suit here..people from many countries and backgrounds
Support from management
Executives are anti-nursing Union
This depends on your area, your position, etc.,most often, U are on your own.
Freedom to work independently
Qualified, I.e. It is a heirachal structured Co.
Good though the computer age has brought an overload of information...sifting through irrelevant emails each day.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Inevitable clashes between individuals, policies and structure are contributing factors
It's up you, what U want to put into it
Overall compensation for your work
Competitive with other major hospitals, though question if that is by their choice. The nursing Union is kept out of Regions in large measure by corporate propaganda.
Office / Work Environment
I worked in a newly renovated area...state of the art for the most part
Cultural and community awareness seems to be a priority
This is up to you...nursing has flexibility built into it, a major plus, so you choose your hours, shifts, etc.
Getting much better with affiliation with health partners, advertising, etc.
Nonexistent. Ie., one cannot feel 100% protected because there is no Union protection to back the individual's interests in cases of conflict.
On a managerial level yes, though this depends on the manager.
Needs improvement. They are trying to improve, and shoe willingness to change things if they pose threats to patients.
Unquestionably...sometimes to the point of being overwhelming.
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Many suggestions have been made but sadly they tend to fall on deaf ears, at least they did post-2012.
What I like about the company
Pay, benefits package, diversity, co-workers, education, 403B
What I dislike about the company
Staff/patient ratio, unrealistic workload, over emphasis on patient turnover (I.e. Profits), managerial bonuses at workers expense, anti- Union stance, possible discriminatory actions based on employee age.
