Support from management
Forget it. Supervisors are nasty biased individuals who will take advantage, demean, and belittle you.
completely non-existant, and some fellow employees will sabotage your work in order to make themselves look good or get you fired.
Good luck with trying to communicate with the higher ups. They tell you to come to them and speak freely about your concerns and problems, but they refuse to acknowledge serious problems and look for ways to terminate when you don't fit into the very visible and nasty click that exits within the department (and especially with the management).
definitely not an employer to work for if you are over 35 years old, middle eastern, and/or disabled.
Attitude towards older colleagues
There is little respect for older colleagues by younger ones which can be seen in how younger employees actively attempt to get older employees fired or get them to quit.
Office / Work Environment
wish I never would have accepted a position with this company. It's management personnel are nasty individuals with clear biases against older persons with middle eastern backgrounds. co-workers will try and get you fired if you don't fit into the click that exists. co-workers spend more time gossiping and discussing their personal lives than focusing on the patients that should be the priority
There is an extremely high turn around for this position due to the horrible treatment by management and other employees towards those employees who are not seen as fit in with others due to either being of an older age, middle eastern background, or because someone places the patient over the significant amount of gossiping and wasting of time.
work was challenging but watch out if you are good at what you do. almost every employee who has been there for more than a year does not individuals who are go getters, productive, and efficient.
Inclusive / Diverse
unless you can fit into the click that exists (younger, white/Hispanic/African american) you better just accept to be either not hired at all or fired relatively quick)
Suggestions for improvement
- This company should do a complete revamp of its management and regular employees. I would even go as far as to that it might benefit from a removal of all current supervisors with new (or some serious retraining of current), and a much better way to monitor and protect employees from the harassment and discrimination that is prevalent at all levels within the hospital and various departments.
What I like about the company
I loved the work that I was doing, and access to their online education and training pages.
What I dislike about the company
The management was horrible. I was demeaned, belittled, discriminated against, and fired when I refused to allow it to continue. This is not a place to work if you are of middle eastern background, and do not play the significant amount of office politics that go on between the management and fellow co-workers.
