Pros

Opportunity to get close to your patients and their families-making a difference. The few dedicated fellow employees that truly care are a joy to work with.

Cons

This company only cares about money .we are always scrounging for supplies, and consistently shortstaffed. Bullying not only allowed but practiced from the don on down. If you complain about anything you are marked and targeted.Calls to corporate office are met with threats of retaliation such as transfer to the worst units as they try and sniff out the complainers. Forced overtime is the norm if you have a dot by your name and someone calls in for the next shift you have to stay or get fired. They say you will know two weeks ahead of time when your dot days are but no on call pay so those with second jobs or babysitters are forced to assume they will be staying aka be on call.Every possible perk has been stripped from their regular employees and health insurance the bare minimum and costs go up every year. My family must now pay 4000.00 out of pocket before receiving any benefits other than yearly checkups. Only positive to working here is job security if you are one of the chosen one's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, surely the corporate compliance number posted gets to someone in corporate when employees call ? Get new management !! This crew is the worst I've ever seen in the last twelve years .
