Company Culture

Toxic, micromanaging

Support from management

Goals are made from on high, and have little bearing on the reality of any situation

Teamwork

Each team works well by itself, nobody plays well with others.

Internal Communication

We find out what we support when emails are sent house wide.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Pushing older employees out to save money

Work-Life Balance

barely exists

Job Security

Regularly reminded that we can be outsourced.

Challenging Work

They love to challenge you. I've been left doing the work of 3-4 people regularly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Actually empower workers to do what is needed and make the changes required to do what you need. Stop with the need to micromanage each and every little aspect of work.

What I like about the company

Great mission

What I dislike about the company

New IS leadership is overbearing, negative and actively pushing away their best talent.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The bathrooms need to be cleaned more often like every 30 minutes because it kind of smells in there!

What I like about the company

Workers get along well and we always have a smile on our faces. We get free food and free public transportation. Also we get free life insurance.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of our days of work. Our schedule is very strict and not really flexible.

Company Culture

Surprisingly not the doctors or nurses or manager ...

Support from management

Too little too late

Teamwork

Fend for yourself if you can't massage egos of female office staff

Freedom to work independently

Monitored by those that aren't your higher ups constantly. Very nosey.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The older office staff allows gossip and joins in then acts oblivious. I had a coworker that made up a reaction if you sighed...

Office / Work Environment

Record everything

Company Image

Good image on the surface but if staff (gossip mom gets) continues to run out good employees who knows . It would be a shame to see ped. Uro suffer as the physicians are amazing.

Job Security

Depends on the undermining of coworkers

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management is undermined by employees and some long time employees thus damaging the reputation of an otherwise good place. Very catty jealous women. Very high school and childish vindictive office staff. Micromanaging coworkers seeking validity

What I like about the company

Love of healing children, amazing physicians, nurses and managers that really try to maintain ethics

What I dislike about the company

Worked with insecure troublemakers , gossiping

Support from management

The Manager will nod and pretend that they understand you, however nothing gets done. Certain staff gets taken care of,others do not. There is a sense of being yes to death, but no action is being taken. Majority of the staff is unhappy and complains, yet there is no solution for the negative issues.

Teamwork

It's like crabs in a barrel. Everyone is climbing over each other just to get the next best position within the department. Everyone is out for self. If you are not on the desired position you are often forgotten, and your opinions and desired are a non factor.

Freedom to work independently

Our job requires us to be independent.

Internal Communication

The Managers and employees don't communicate in an effective manner.
When you bring this up, people agree but nothing is done.
Many callouts without communication to the next staff coming in.

Career Development

Again, it depends on your personal goals and what you're trying to achieve. But i would not choose to be here as a lifelong employee.

Office / Work Environment

Work environment can be volatile due to the inequality of how staff is treated.

Environmental Friendliness

For the most part, people are friendly outside the department.

Work-Life Balance

There are advantages to certain positions, with that being said it all depends on who is favored more.

Job Security

There are people that NEED to be fired, but they will not no matter what they do. It would be safe to say your job is secure.

Workplace Safety

Due to being understaffed, I feel very unsafe in my work environment. The volume is high and they expect you to work at a high volume but dont provide the tools you need to do your job.

Challenging Work

The workload itself is challenging, not in a good way.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fully staff your departments. Stop making people feel like a number. Pay people their worth and perhaps there wouldnt be so much turn-around or call outs.

The Most important thing in nursing, manager made it adversarial.

Only if I could read manger's mind, and perform as she would do.
