Company Culture

Corporation and company use culture of fear to scare away higher paid, more qualified Nurses resulting in unsafe conditions for patients and staff.

Support from management

This is a rudderless ship with revolving captains. Dealing with HR Dept. would be a laughable experience if it wasn't so painful.

Teamwork

ER Dept. teamwork is only thing that makes job bearable, though too many slackers likely due to low, low company morale.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company is actively trying to scare away more experienced Nurses in favor of younger, less experienced Nurses at a lower rate of pay. There must be a balance of the two to be successful and provide safe patient care.

Overall compensation for your work

Nurses here are at the lowest pay-scale for Santa Cruz, Santa Clara and Monterey counties. During current contract negotiations the corporation is trying to roll back salaries, benefits and health insurance.

Work-Life Balance

Union negotiated contract is only protection Nurses have, but their has been no contract for more than two years.

Job Security

Unlike any company I have worked for over 25 years, I feel this company might, at any time, fabricate a complaint against an employee resulting in their dismissal.

Challenging Work

Being an ER Nurse is one of the toughest jobs one can have in the United States today.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Rewards and recognition go a long way and are less expensive to maintain morale and create better customer service. 99% of businesses in Silicon Valley realize this.

What I like about the company

It is a very short commute from my home.

What I dislike about the company

Has used aggressive tactics against individuals (dismissal without cause) and all staff (per NLRB failing to bargain on a new contract) to create low morale and an atmosphere of fear.
