    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice physical place to work. Building is being updated but is far behind other area hospitals in decor. Food is fairly good compared to most hospitals. Traditional retirement program.

    Cons

    Disrespect abounds. If you are a nurse expect to put your license on the line. You are urged to violate nursing standards and hospital policy. If you have an integrity stay clear. You will not be promoted for experience or expertise. You will however be promoted if you party with the "right people" If you are a normal working person that cares about patient care, and your family don't bother. Pay and benefits falling below competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward integrity, promote excellence, actually care about patients and healthcare more than medicare reimbursement or pandering to staff physicians.

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are some great people and overall the company is supportive of employees. It's been around a long time and isn't going anywhere. People in the community think highly of the hospital and many employees seem happy and proud.

    Cons

    Top people make all the decisions. It's not what you know, it's who you know. Lots of favoritism in some areas. Certain departments are dead ends and others get lots of attention. Employees that are rude, incompetent and have bad attitudes don't get fired, they just get more power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to input and recognize that employees at all levels can contribute. Don't be afraid to get rid of the bad apples.

    Pros

    Great staff. Completely redoing most parts of the hospital to keep it up to date. ER is new and spacious.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Cut back on PTO but still better than nothing. Hard for lazy people to get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick up for your employees

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital part-time

    Pros

    NKC Hospital is a decent size, but still gives a small community feel. It is hard to feel lost in the hospital once you have been working there a month or so. Every employee you see in the hall responds with kind waves and smiles. It is a great organization to work for, especially if you want to help patients. North Kansas City is ranked as one of the top hospitals in all of Missouri (I think it's #6 right now) and top rated for the Northland area. Has a history of growing and bettering the environment over the last few decades. It's a solid place to start your career, or even a great place to help pay during college years.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard being in a position which lacks any kind of authority. Be sure to stay in your lane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to all of your employees about their questions and concerns. It really makes a difference.

    Pros

    Still has a traditional retirement plan.

    Cons

    NKCH used to be a great place to work. In recent years nurses are very unhappy and most are seeking employment elsewhere. Nursing management micromanages, and gives lip service with a smirk to autonomy. Nurses are routinely thrown under the bus when trying to be patient advocates. Don't expect respect. Administration demonstrates a lack of regard for professional nurses. I used to LOVE working here. Now it's all I can do to drag myself back each day.

    Overall a decent place to work. If you are not in nursing, there is little opportunity for advancement.

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are good. The hospital does a good job of making sure employees have great access to healthcare at a good price. The cafeterias are great. The smaller cafe makes dinner items to take home and entire holiday dinners. The parking garages are covered and safe. Security does a great job keeping the work environment safe.

    Cons

    Communication. The communication approach is definitely top down bottom up. Individual contributions are not encouraged. There is a definite lack of business processes and procedures. The lack of written documentation causes frequent rework. There is a fair amount of gossip, even in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying to implement better business processes. Written communication works well.
