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 Management

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.

    Pros

    If you like to stay under the radar, this company is for you. The 401k match is really nice. The people that work there are also nice. There are no goals or deadlines. You can get away with doing the bare minimum without anyone knowing.

    Cons

    The managers are out of touch with the corporate world. They've been working there for 15+ years and don't know anything else. The company is afraid of change so they have been stuck in the same place for many years. Employees will always get the lowest rating at the end of the year. Pay is extremely low compared to other companies. There is zero room for advancement because the old dinosaurs that have those positions refuse to leave. Their interview process was more difficult than the actual day to day tasks. The processes are old. The employees are old. The managers are old. The company's culture is old.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in younger talent to replace the "old" ways. The directors and managers don't have the skills to lead and motivate their departments.
