    I have been working at American Association of Critical Care Nurses

    Pros

    Family-friendly, casual atmosphere. Mission driven work. Great people. Great benefits. Many employees have worked here for decades, but size has grown in recent years to add a lot of new people.

    Cons

    South county, not very exciting area. Slightly lower $ compensation than you might make elsewhere. Small organization, not for corporate ladder climbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing great job.

    I worked at American Association of Critical Care Nurses as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good company but IT team is stuck with bad management

    Cons

    IT database employee resists new technology and have hard time learning new technology. No overtime pay but workload is more than 8 hours a day. You don't get to estimate an assignment. You will be given a timeframe to finish the assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    good luck

    You will love the member-customers, be wary of management's veneer of open communication or morays and norms.

    I worked at American Association of Critical Care Nurses

    Pros

    Serve the critical care nurses (the members) and become a part of the honorable work of improving patient care in critical care units across the nation. All of society benefits from the service and education of this constituency. The critical care nurses are really the unsung heroes of today's health care system and are individuals with great integrity and high ideals who function in organizations/hospitals who may not adhere to the same level of ethical standards.

    Cons

    The dissonance between the espoused values and norms of the organization and practice resides at the nexus of Earth and Pluto. They tend to reorganize departmental functions and tasks frequently, basing their decisions upon favored individual manager's preferences for certain responsibilities. The outcomes of these reorganizations which occur two to three times a year, disassemble effective flow processes lowering staff productivity, performance and results. The compensation is much lower than other organizations of parity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to the staff who are the implementors of programs on a day to day basis. Do not entertain negative or give weight to comments about staff from other staff without a full assessment of all the facts, and underlying motivations. Consider that you are in a cycle of collectively reinforcing your own hubris(unintentional though it maybe). Ask yourselves why such a high percentage of your staff go to the EAP therapists to try and restore their dignity and cope.
