    It's who you know

    Pbx (Former Employee)
    North Kansas City, MO

    ProsThere 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Healthy work environment, plenty of room to grow your career!

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

    ProsThis hospital really cares about their employees, co-workers are amazing. Clean, beautiful, and respectful work environment. Great benefits, ample parking, safe and convient location. Nurses given opportunities to be envolved, and are mentored by the best. Team work is amazing everyone is appreciated for their hard work and effort; everyone works equally and expected to perform their job to the best of their ability. Patient satisfaction is very important to staff and taken very seriously.

    ConsSlightly behind technologically, but working toward improvements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, employees that are happy will provide the most amazing patient care.

    Emergency Room Technician (Current Employee)

    Transportation Aide

    Transportation Aide (Former Employee)
    North Kansas City, MO

    ProsNKC 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.

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    nurses are very unhappy here

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    North Kansas City, MO

    ProsStill has a traditional retirement plan.

    ConsNKCH 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.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    North Kansas City, MO

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsCommunication. 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 Senior ManagementKeep trying to implement better business processes. Written communication works well.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
