    I have been working at Oakwood Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers try and do what is right for the patients, just need support from hospital administration.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership- appears to be a lot of turn over. Micromanaged middle management by upper. Out of touch with employees. Corporate leadership positioning themselves for golden parachutes with the merger, all friends and 65+.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adhere to your values in times of conflict and controversy, not just when it is convenient.

    I worked at Oakwood Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, coworkers, work is hard but rewarding

    Cons

    Management shows little concern for employees injured on the job. Seems they want them to move on instead of returning to work. Employees do not get injured on purpose and want to return to their previous position but when the injury prevents returning to the previous position Oakwood does not offer work in other positions
