There is no climate of fairness or trust. Employees were to do what they are told to do, do not question it and never point out that there is another, possible better, way to do the job....that will get you terminated.
Support from management
Limited support, by only a few mid-management individuals. Most of mid-management seek to save their own necks - not yours.
Individuals in my department worked well together for the greater part, although there was one "bully" who had free reign on everything, and was never discouraged or reprimanded by our supervisor.
Freedom to work independently
No. We were micromanaged by the "bully". Independent thought was discouraged.
Information was on a "need to know" basis, and most times, the employee didn't need to know.
No. While women may hold some mid-management positions, the vast majority of mid- and upper-management positions are held by men.
Attitude towards older colleagues
NO. If you are not young (
The company...No. The residents...yes (they contribue to a scholarship program to encourage advancing nursing skills(CNA to LPN or RN.)
Overall compensation for your work
Wages are the lowest when compared to other local agencies. Benefits are offered and a very high deductible. Paid weekly, with only occasional snafus.
Office / Work Environment
No. Archaic computer programs, outdated equipment, and rooms...not on second or third shift (we carried our work to the front desk to multitask as receptionist-nurses.)
Vacations cannot be taken at any time. Pretty regular schedule. Expected to cover open shifts for the good of the company.
NO. Employees do not speak fondly of the employer, while employed or after leaving.
Thee is no job security. You can be replaced in a moment's notice (many people have been.)
They make an effort to do so, so that their image is not tarnished.
There are annual trainings.
It is mindless and not challenging.
Inclusive / Diverse
HA! No expressing opinions please.
Suggestions for improvement
- Instead of having "yes" men as supervisors, put intelligent, confident, risk-taking leaders in charge.
What I like about the company
It paid me well enough.
What I dislike about the company
The employees and management are phony, smiling while they are planning when and how they will stab you in the back.
