Company Culture

Some departments seemed to have cohesiveness, sadly the area I worked in did not. Little to no help from management, but you couldn’t do anything without express permission from manager. Everything was done through chain-of-command and employees weren’t really allowed to think for themselves.

Support from management

It’s not in the budget and “I’ll look into it” were regular responses to issues with no resolution.

Teamwork

Manager often pulled the “he said/she said” card and would throw employees under the bus to keep himself out of disfavor.

Freedom to work independently

Everything had to be ran through the manager first.

Internal Communication

Majority of successes were mentioned at the time of the Employee Engagement Survey.

Gender Equality

Manager had openly said Im going to hire a man, there is too much women drama. He did indeed hire a man.

Career Development

The management seemed intimidated by anyone who had more formal education than himself. He denied additional training to a coworker and told him he didn’t need it for his job (the class was on process improvement and waste elimination)

Overall compensation for your work

After working for 4 years, denied a salary review did the hospital do a formal analysis did I get my raise and it was significant (along the lines that I was asking).

Office / Work Environment

Always seemed cold to me and ergonomics was sometimes impossible given a patients condition.

Environmental Friendliness

Can’t recycle much in healthcare.

Work-Life Balance

Manager always granted vacation requests,even if that meant being severely short staffed and employees having to stay very late to complete work.

Job Security

Our manager wouldn’t let go of people even when they neglected multiple rules, created drama and refused to see certain patients. So everyone else had to pick up the slack.

Handicapped Accessibility

Handicapped accessible but on a hill from the parking lot making is difficult to get patients to and from vehicles while in wheelchairs if they cannot walk very far (Heart and Vascualr Center on a small hill)

Workplace Safety

Webinars are part of training, but are not very realistic.

Challenging Work

It was a very busy department and productivity was the managers top priority but never showed appropriate appreciation for hard working individuals.

Inclusive / Diverse

They claim to, but I did not notice it in the department I worked for.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management training is needed. I left this organization because of poor management. A manager who wanted sheep to follow his orders, but he was the biggest “yes man” I’ve ever met.

What I like about the company

I did work with some very wonderful people and I was sad to leave them.

What I dislike about the company

Management training should be a requirement. It would hopefully help individuals understand the diversity and importance of how there management style affects their team and the organization as a whole.

Company Culture

Some love their job others hate their jobs.

Support from management

Management is not involved in my job unless they need to talk to me about doing something wrong.

Teamwork

This is a must in our field of work.

Freedom to work independently

We mainly work as a team but without a floor supervisor.

Internal Communication

Depends on the situation, sometimes they communicate well other times they don't communicate at all

Gender Equality

The majority of our workforce is women. The men that we have working with us do seem to get special treatment.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The majority of our workforce is older employees that have been there for years.

Career Development

Room to grow in the healthcare industry after going to school and getting your degree

Overall compensation for your work

It is comparable, however it is not fair. If is a very low amount for the amount of work we do.

Office / Work Environment

It is efficient for work.

Environmental Friendliness

There are recycling bins but it is not really talked about or encouraged.

Work-Life Balance

My company provides an EAP and a few discounts but there is not real work/life balance setup.

Company Image

I like the hospital that I work for is in a nice.

Job Security

Yes, because we are short staffed.

Handicapped Accessibility

This is a hospital therefore it has to be handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

There is some training but not a lot its pretty hands on.

Challenging Work

Orthopedics is a hard position.

Inclusive / Diverse

Some values and opinions are supported as needed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would ask the employees their opionions and add it into my agenda. I might not be able to change everything but there should be somethings that I am able to change for the staff.

What I like about the company

It is a small company. Many of the employees have been there for many years and although they complain as many employees do they are not going anywhere because it is a good company. BEcause they are a small company they can't offer all the benefits of a bigger company, however they try to offer a little.

What I dislike about the company

Management makes decisions without letting us know they are making them. They do not always have the employees needs on their mind it seems to be more about them instead of about their employees.

Company Culture

They have lost their integrity. They are not honest with their employees and their ethics leave a lot to be desired.

Support from management

There is none, even at the HR level.

Teamwork

At the lower level it is ok, however once you reach the manager or above it goes down the toilet.

Freedom to work independently

Very little, they do not trust their employees.

Internal Communication

My Director proved numerous times that he could not be trusted and made many false statements to his employees.

Gender Equality

No issues here.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Poor. They want you out so that they can hire someone at a lower rate to save money.
They do not care about experience.

Career Development

Does not exist.

Overall compensation for your work

Lower than it should have been.
They brought in another supervisor and he was making two dollars less than I was with 20 years experience.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile

Environmental Friendliness

Very Poor

Work-Life Balance

Does not exist.

Company Image

Great from the outside, but ask current employees or former employees who were let go even they did nothing wrong.

Job Security

Does not exist.

Handicapped Accessibility

Good Handicapped access.

Workplace Safety

Poor. They have brought in a contractor for my old dept. with no experience in health care facilities and expect it to run smoothly and with the same level of protection for their employees and patients.

Challenging Work

The work is challenging, however employees should not have the drama with their directors who cannot tell the truth. Telling employees false things results in them losing all respect for their administration.

Inclusive / Diverse

They are diverse. They will hire just about anyone.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get back to the basics. The Directors don't come out of their offices. Employees who have been there for two years have never met them. When they ask for a meeting with the director it takes eight to ten weeks if it ever happens at all.

What I like about the company

It is a local company.
For the first fifteen years that I was there the atmosphere was much better, and you could trust the administration.

What I dislike about the company

The way employees are treated is very poor. They brought in a contractor with no experience in health care for the Security Dept. and just about wiped out the current employees. The supervisors were given almost 3 months notice that their positions were being abolished in case they wanted to apply with the new contractor. Their off was a pay cut of four thousand dollars and no vacation until you were with the new contractor for a year.
