Great technical people, managed by out of touch executives

Pros

great technology, and some fantastic people performing the work

Cons

the company states that it values the workers, but no raises, cut bonuses, and few promotions have eroded the support staff that made the organization successful. most of the really strong technical people are actively searching for other jobs. once they leave, the weaker technical team that is left will not be able to continue the level of service required to complete the organizations tasks. Ironically, the reluctance of executive management to deal with these weaker technical team members is one of the most evident facts that the upper management is out of touch with what is really happening. dealing with the technically weaker team members (through training, or attrition) would provide more help to the rest of the team members. this would reduce stress on everyone, making the situation better, and the goals of the company would be achieved quicker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pay attention to the people who are making you successful, and take care of them while you can.

    Pros

    Most staff very nice to work with

    Cons

    For profit hospital. Height nurse patient ratios

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to realize they nurses who want better resources to take better care of their patients. They are tieing the nurses hands and expecting them to do more.
