Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Estero, FL

Pros

Health benefits are prety good, and priced below the norm in the area. Staff really works hard and tries their best to comply with the demands placed upon them. Clean facility, housekeeping is five stars. Director of nursing is excellent, caring, compasionate yet firm in the standards expected from us. Vacation and pto time is good, the pay is ok, but the annual raises are the pits.Food in the dinning room is excellent

Cons

Lack of real interest for the employees .Scheduling is non consistent and favoritism club, some people get the wrong end of the stick if you ask for changes.One must find their own replacement if sudden/emergency situations arise. on call schedule is a farce, Mgrs often refuse to come in, when called,but still collect their $100.00 on call bonuses. 401 k contributions by the company have ended, . The majority of the 401k selections carry hefty FEES,reducing your end profits if any.Some nurses work days, evenings and night with no set scheduling.The company is a down to the bottom directional force, rather than from the bottom up , after all we are in the line of fire and must know something, but no, the corporate staff knows evrything bottom up. Employees that purchase their lunches, should at least be OFFERED a drink and silverware/plasticware to eat their meals Employees should not be allowed to punch out for lunch and return to their unit to keep on working, so they will not counseled if they have to work over their 8 hour schudule. The five to thirty five cents an hour annual raises do not keep up with the inflation index, most people stay because the labor market is slow in the area, and a job is better than none..value your staff, they represent life care. EmployeeTerminations are Cmmon..Therapy brings in the money, therapy brings in the money, and every quarter the wheelchair patients are evaluated and pat B is placed in effect, more money for the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1)-Once a year, do an employee survey, proctored by corporate Hr. eliminating the intimidation subject. 2)-Practice what you preach, kindness, etc, share that with the employees 3-) stop micromanaging the nursing director, she knows right from wrong 4)- stop the knee jerk reactions, every time something happens in alaska, the reaction is felt down in key west..every situation is not the same.4)- SEARCh for another 4o1k provider, others have less fees and more choices, they will even set it up for FREE. 5)-develop a trusting enviroment rather than an adverserial one. corporate does not know everything, ask the frontline nurses,without intimidation or corporate bullying.

    Pros

    If you've ever said "Thank you Sir; may I have another" in college, then you'll have no problem fitting in here.

    Co-workers are mostly friendly and everyone is encouraged to do "Whatever it takes, and then some."

    Charity participation is 100%

    The quarterly associate luncheons are nice.

    Cons

    Management is extremely ossified and resistant to change.Their mens dress code is straight out of "Mad Men." Skirts, heels and corsets would be mandatory for the women if the EEOC would let them get away with it.

    Most corporate positions are salaried, but there's no flex-time, comp-time or other soft compensation for working overtime. Having to come back in at 7:00 and work until Midnight is no excuse for not being at your desk at 8:00 the next morning.

    Upper management functions almost exclusively on the "good-old-boys network" and rarely lets the rank and file know about changes in company direction. There's also a huge amount of cronyism, unwritten rules and sacred cow individuals. Interdepartmental communication is highly discouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make 360-degree feedback reviews mandatory instead of only at the manager's request.

    Allow flex-time or some other compensation for working overtime.

    Put in some sort of feedback or suggestion process to allow inter-departmental collaboration.
