What I like about the company

Where I particularly work I have a wonderful team and manager. I am not micromanaged nor do I feel any pressure. I have built a very good repertoire with my fellow teammates and management to feel confident about my work and the ideas I may have to share with them. They will listen. Not always act upon but will listen. We're always trying to improve and make what we do have a better impact on patient care.

What I dislike about the company

Because we are county some times things gets a but political. I'm not very happy sometimes when some of the division of labor such as our hr does not do the work or review people equally. Nor do they feel or review our jobs equally when looking for salary realignments.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The workplace and culture is nice. I just wish they offer more permanent positions for extra help or on call employees

What I like about the company

I work on call so I don’t really get benefits or know about it but it’s a county hospital and if you work long enough for them, they provide a better pension and Medicare for you when you retire

What I dislike about the company

The management team on my unit is not very supportive

The following perks were offered to me

On site cafeteria is offered Health and wellness programs is offered Employee discounts is offered Vehicle allowance is offered Employee events is offered

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase staff pay and lower the cost for part-time employee's benefits. Stricter policies in place to protect staff from abusive patients, with a zero-tolerance policy. Increase staff ratio, instead of always staffing to the minimum. Better relationship and more open communication between doctors and staff members - zero-tolerance policy in place as well for verbal abuse and humiliation. Staff nursing office with more RNs instead of floating unit RNs to other floors.

What I like about the company

Hours may not be flexible but scheduling with the unit manager may be.

What I dislike about the company

Pay for employees can definitely be increased to be comparable to other hospitals in the city. Need more staff support by management to ensure patients do not abuse staff, verbally/mentally/physically, with firm and direct consequences. Better hospital management and staff satisfaction rather than prioritizing customer satisfaction - health care and hospitals are meant to treat ill or dying patients, not to wait on them hand and foot.
