    too much management is present in the corporate structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to thin management, and make fewer individuals present in the chain of command

  2. Fire all your RNs in Urgent Care and replace them with EMTs- stupid!

    I worked at Bend Memorial Clinic full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Helping patients in need, getting to work at multiple locations. Not much else really positive to say. They fire you when you have seniority and replace you with someone they can pay less.

    Cons

    You are just a number, they don't care about you. They fired all the most senior RNs in Urgent Care and replaced them with EMTs because it is cheaper labor for them. They don't want experienced, knowledgeable RNs. All they care about is profiting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shame on you for firing your senior RNs and replacing them with EMTs- that is not a smart move! Your comparing 4 years of training to maybe 6 months of training?!?

    Tough due to lack of good communication between management and employees.

    I worked at Bend Memorial Clinic

    Pros

    Compensation was ok and health/ dental benefits were good.

    Cons

    Communication between management and employees was very poor. There wasn't much structure and not clear job responsibilities. Instead of layoffs they would fire people due to budget cut reasons. Not very family friendly, management didn't understand absences due to sick children.

    I worked at Bend Memorial Clinic

    Pros

    good company culture with friendly staff, providers cares about the patient

    Cons

    management structure is controlled by the hire and fire method, no one can dissent and remain employed, The August layoffs are legendary, Higher employee turnover rate than any other company I have worked for, due to embedded management style, implementing thin production method without stakeholder buyin, and other uneducated managment gaffes. Not a company worth working for, I cannot reccommend unless you are desperate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix upper management hierarchy
