    Many preach mission and values, too few actually exhibit the behavior

    Pros

    Competitive salary, some really good people work here, good benefit plans

    Cons

    Many have issues with responsibility and accountability, Some leaders have no business being in their positions and create toxic work environments. They hear what they want to hear. They
    spout out quotes and quips from the latest business books and are completely out of touch with reality. They have no idea how to manage staff or identify and rectify issues with employees. High turnover in leadership positions lately is "interesting" obvious political struggles in leadership are obvious to all employees with a brain.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to what your middle management is telling you. Hold them more accountable for employee work performance and don't allow 20% of your staff to do 100% of the work because the other 80% are lazy delegators. Stop standard merit increases that reward all employees with the same increases yearly. Increases should be measured by performance, not existence.

    Pros

    Hourly wages are competitive, no pressure from management.

    Cons

    Hard to get shifts covered, no union. Management does not entertain requests for raise.

    Advice to Management

    Though unionization is inevitable, it can be avoided if the voices of ancillary staff were considered. I like working here, but as an aspiring RN with a degree in another field, the company does not offer much in terms of training or other learning.

    Pros

    The staff I work with in Home Health services seem so supportive, almost like family. Flexible schedule, and benefits available, though pro-rated with a 20 hour position. Good job security, decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Too much top heavy administration. Superfluous expenditures such as excessive use of video which actually takes more time away from our work. Not enough support for professional development, use of awkward difficult to use software. Many changes continue, not always for the better, seem aimed more at money for the business than for supporting field staff.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreication to employees with raises and or increased health insurance benefits, rather than spending money on unhealthy box lunches or wasteful gifts such as our recent "gift" of white PeaceHealth socks.

    Pros

    Liked Coworkers for most part.

    Cons

    Lots of Big Fish in small pond mentalities. People in leadership positions without education or management skills. When suggesting changes or improvement there was a lot of "Why change, this is the way we've always done it"., type attitude. Professionalism here wouldn't past muster in other states.

    Advice to Management

    Raise level of expectation for your departments and yourselves. Only way to be treated like a healthcare professional in an allied health profession is to raise your standards and stop looking at just bodies to fill positions. How about minimum 4 year degrees to work in more critical areas and leadership and management positions.

    Pros

    Newer facility, seems clean and spacious. Department is large so flexible scheduling is possible. People are generally friendly. on most units.

    Cons

    Therapists pay for all their own licensing and CEU fees. Training is very limited, short, lunchtime-only inservice meetings, so career growth has sadly entrenched limitations. This is not a magnet facility for therapists.

    Advice to Management

    You say you have to pay for 'quality', but why does this only extend to CEO's? Rethink this.

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Paid time off good. Retirement excellent. Great team of co workers.

    Cons

    Hostile management on an ongoing basis expectations ridiculous micro managing to the point of work stress. No missions and values language of care hypercritical. Need for management classes. Systems Dis organized. Middle management stand up for employes to upper management! John Hill forum wasted paid time!

    Advice to Management

    Great group of hard workers let us do our jobs quit nit picking patient quality not quantity of revenue. Listen to your employees Practice what you preach and take some time for life!

    Pros

    Satisfying work, attention to the "mission" of caring for the disadvantaged. Good benefits that include the option of adding health insurance for a"significant other" be it an elderly parent, disabled adult child, or domestic partner. Eugene is also a great place to live.

    Cons

    Layers of middle management that sometimes seem to focus on procedural issues to the detriment of the day to day functioning. Our department seems to go through a manager a year. The ones that seemed to work effectively on department issues ran into difficulty in the hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line is important, but don't forget about the mission.
