    Unprepared and Turned Out Too Soon

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Fredericksburg, VA

    ProsHospital offers great benefits package along with promising a less than honest nurse patient ratio. Employees are friendly and work well together. There is no room for growth because there is no education unless you take classes on your own. There is little work life balance because someone is always calling out and they are always short and calling people in to cover. If you don't come in, they make you feel guilty, so you avoid answering the phone on your days off.

    ConsEmployees are not prepared to do rehab nursing and many leave. The nursing educator is useless and staff are enabled by inexperienced supervisors. There is no strong leadership. The CEO is wimpy and the top doctor just walks around all day acting like a doctor or hiding in his office and has his staff see his patients. Marketing bring patients in to fill beds, they can't handle the rehab

    Advice to Senior ManagementTop people at corporate look at the CEO and ask them this.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
