Support from management

No

Teamwork

The male nurses do not assist the female nurses unless they are young. We more seasoned nurses were out there to the wind. Good ole boy's club.

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Gender Equality

Good ole boy's club. Male nurses were not helpful to the older females

Attitude towards older colleagues

Non-hispanic older females were not appreciated nor treated well. Ignored when they needed assistance. Many older female traveling RNs would leave due to discrimination. Also older female, non hispanics were retiring before they wanted to due to the stress of discrimination.

Career Development

Not for the older nurses.

Overall compensation for your work

No, I was a seasoned RN with 36 years of experience from top management to floor nursing.

Office / Work Environment

Portable work stations were not ergonomically correct for most staff. The screens were always too high. Chairs at nurses stations were wobbly and not always adjustable for one's ergonomics.

Environmental Friendliness

I did not see any recycling processes except for paper.

Work-Life Balance

Call-ins due to family issues were frowned upon.

Company Image

No

Job Security

Not really certain on this. I was not supported by the corp. when injured on the job due to poor staffing.

Challenging Work

Yes, but not always in a positive way. Nurses spent the majority of their hours on the computers, and administering medications. Hands on patient care was greatly lacking.

Inclusive / Diverse

Unless one spoke Spanish, you were left out of many conversations, and events. I felt reverse discrimination most of the time. Discrimination due to not being Hispanic and age discrimination-older RN
