Pros

Riverside is one of the largest employers in the area and requires minimal experience for entry level employees. Provides ample opportunities for staff to continue education and certification to remain relevant and excel in the medical field.

Cons

more focused on being profitable than providing excellent care and a healthy work environment for employees. Neglectful of lower staff criticism of operations and makes budget cuts from the bottom end rather than adjusting executive's salary. Manipulates staff surveys to skew results to show improving staff satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with the employees who actually provide care instead of relying on unit managers, who are frankly, more interested in money.

    Pros

    Fellow employees very pleasant. Since the area is rural commuting was easier than in a big city.

    Cons

    Benefits not great -- the switch to the Humana medical plan caused many complaints; some went even as high as the CEO. Facilities were poor unless your area had patient traffic. Many areas are understaffed but upper management refused to add staff. Like other reviewers I also found many in upper management who survived by backstabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the old nags who have been there forever need to be gone. Also, actually listen to what the employees report back, instead of merely paying lip service to it. Get a better benefits structure
