    Pros

    Benefits of Health Insurance & some of the good staff family relationship. Having to deal with happy and friendly customers push for a success and feel of a job well done, making one feel appreciated. Strengthens ability to work in stressful environment and communication skill set along with patience and understanding different situations and solutions.

    Cons

    Mostly unhappy demanding customers and having to fit in the scores of government demands with customer reviews. Would like to be acknowledge and shown for good work not thought about as a machine or tool.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employee(s) on matters and ask sensible question(s) and make sensible decision(s) with the involvement of the employee(s). Understand better work flow of each individual due to the environment as we all understand the current strain of health care(working together counts as team(s) with departments.

    Pros

    Smart people to work with; great flexible working environment; extremely wonderful benefits; educational opportunities including tuition reimbursement and classes offered; growth and development opportunities;

    Cons

    There were some issues with the rumor mill; company is small so not well fine tuned yet but overall very smart people to work with and a great place to be.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a great job and I don't have any advice to offer. It has been a great place to work and I continue to learn from the leadership there.

    Pros

    Love working in my department. Everyone mature and great to work with. Down to earth people who really want to make a difference.

    Cons

    A per diem employee and would like to be full time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to new employees.

  6. I worked for HF for 10 years. The first 8 years were great, the last 2 were horrible.

    Pros

    My coworkers were like family. I developed lifelong friendships with a lot of them. Patient safety is always priority.

    Cons

    Administration is out of touch with what it's like to work on the floor as a RN. Short staffed all the time. Patient to nurse ratio unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen and respect your employees. They are miserable there. It is unrealistic to take care of 6 or 7 patients to 1 RN and sometimes no CNA help and not expect mistakes to occur. You are burning out the nurses, especially those who have years of experience.

    Pros

    The benefits seem fair, but could be more cost effective. HF owns the ins company. The hospital associates should not have worse policies than they see coming across the desks

    Cons

    inability to get time off approved. Constantly working short handed. Always having the same people do the OT, and not require everyone to share rather than burn out the willing associates.

    Advice to Management

    Offer your help to your associates. Do not just let them work however they can when you can not find anyone to fill in a spot that was vacated by a sick person or just not having enough people trained. You will gain much more respect with your team if you just roll up your sleeves and show your team that you care. Most management is salary, and should be made by there supervisors to work when department is short rather than overwhelm the people working or risk mistakes.

    Pros

    Good pay and supportive team members.

    Cons

    Poor training support. New employees require more orientation hours and mentoring by the experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening to corporate and follow what is ethical.

  11. Horrible company, management does not care about their employees

    Pros

    I really do not have a lot of positive things to say other than the insurance is good, office is clean and landscape is pretty.

    Cons

    Management needs to be trained on HR policy, labor laws and how to treat employees, ie: not talk about one employee to another employee. Management needs to learn that an employees personal life is none of their business and not to ask personal questions about their employees life.

    Advice to Management

    Training classes for management, stop favoritism within departments, build morale within the departments
