    I have been working at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Caring people, good benefits, a mission that is rewarding. It's an exciting time with so much growth potential with the new facility and expanding the network to serve more patients.

    Cons

    There have been "restructuring" moves that resulted in surprise eliminations of co-workers that have left many feeling unsure about job security.

    I worked at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital

    Pros

    I loved my job. Seeing the patients improve and being part of their journey was so awesome and rewarding. My coworkers were clinically solid and very helpful.

    Cons

    If you saw an opportunity for something to be better or something unfair was happening, it was best to stay silent because if management perceived you as negative it was an eventual death sentence for your job. This happened to many good employees. Nursing management stated on multiple occasions that they had full support of the CEO to do whatever they chose and that unchecked power was abused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the Guild: read the employee surveys!! We were dissatisfied and instead of addressing our concerns the DON just told us she was dissapointed in our attitude. Approaching our concerns and frustrations in that way allowed the DON to not have to change or improve anything because she could claim that our concerns were just us complaining. This approach to our concerns provided a convenient excuse for plummeting morale and a jump in attrition.

    Pros

    Small Family Atmosphere. Everyone knows everyone and everyone cares about everyone. Was a great place to work until new upper mgmt

    Cons

    Upper Management cracked the whip! Jobs were eliminated. Those left behind were to pick up the slack and work more hours.

    Pros

    MFB has a strong patient and family focused culture that has allowed it to provide superior quality of care. There is a high level business literacy and customer service that allows employees at all levels to understand their individual role in contributing to the mission. Collaborative work environment where work life balance is respected.

    Cons

    The organization's strong tradition sometimes interferes with it's ability to adapt and change, despite dramatic changes in the healthcare industry. Top executives operate independent of each other, rather than collaboratively, sending mixed messages to staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish consistent, realistic organizational objectives and retain only leaders willing to support the changes necessary to meet these objectives.

    Pros

    Job satisfaction in caring for the clients. The opportunity to get to know patients and their families on a personal level.

    Cons

    Minimal feedback provided by management, poor communication. Management allowed certain employees to go against policies due to seniority. Favoritism has no place in the work-place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a concrete set of expectations for all employees to increase job satisfaction. Also, management needs to set clear 'rules' regarding workplace gossip.
