    Pros

    Decent insurance benefits
    Competent coworkers

    Cons

    The department was incredibly understaffed, and workloads were impossible. Every few months they would make up some nonsense about how we weren't efficient enough and lay off a few more people. You could either get in trouble for staying too late or not getting your work done; there's no way you could get everything done and still leave on time. Management was horrible and pathetic, not a single supervisor lasted more than a year. They had no idea how to coach, review, or lead their team. There was the expectation of flexibility, which they interpreted as doing other people's jobs that you're not trained, licensed, or remotely qualified for. Also, the facility is in a dicey neighborhood, my car was vandalized several times. As an employee holiday gift, the whole staff got horrible plastic windbreakers and coupons for the cafeteria.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the time and money to hire an experienced manager who can bring out the best in their team. You have talented people who don't feel appreciated. Recognize that doubling your staff's caseload doesn't make them more efficient, it just burns them out faster. You're running your business into the ground, and continuing to lay off staff isn't going to solve anything.

    Pros

    Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare is a values-based organization, where collaboration and mutual respect are part of the prevailing culture.

    Cons

    Working for a non-profit organization has its downsides, such as salary expectations and limited access to additional FTEs for an ever-increasing workload.
