    Night shift

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee) Bradenton, FL

    ProsTeam environment, great benefits, and opportunities for overtime

    ConsVery little help, when census drops and there is high acuity there is no consideration for staffing

    Advice to Senior Managementstaff by acuity

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    accountant

    Accounting (Current Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    ProsStandard benefits, no promotion potential, leadership is male oriented and at times a bullying attitude.

    ConsTraining was non existent. They basically hire you and you are reliant on your co-workers to tell you where to find the information to do your job. They expect you to show up by 7 am and stay til after 6 pm although when hired you were told work hours were 9-5:30. Whe I left occasionally to pick up my son from daycare I would get a raised eyebrow although I worked 60+ hours weeks. Took sick leave once for 3 days and got 50 questions....personally intrusive. Also told I couldn't use sick leave to take care of my sick 18 month old son. Hired at $53k which isn't enough to live on with my student loans coming due in a couple months. Been there a year with no review or any promise of a raise. Actively looking for a a better job that offers monetary incentives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough $53k might be an acceptable starting salary it is insufficient to meet even basic living cost considering student loans, rent, a very modest car payment($200), and daycare expenses. Employee reviews should be conducted with clear goals and also convey the potential for financial rewards. One 3 day sick leave request in over a year of employment should not cause management concern and excuse offensive personal questions. Management should not be surprised by the employee turnover they have caused.

    Good company, lots of opportunity for employment in Las Vegas area

    Staff RN (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGood benifits, good learning experience for most.

    ConsThis is not a good place for new grads. Please go to acute care hospital first for a year. Management tends to try to cater to the newer nurses, even though those hired for their experience, are over looked for supervisory positions.

    Do not work here!

    Project Management (Current Employee) King of Prussia, PA

    Prosthe building has Air conditioning...that's it.

    ConsThis place has no respect for the employees. Everything is about the bottom line and how much bonuses the managers/directors can squeeze in. The PTO days are very little and there is no compassion for anyone. People are rather insensitive and nobody really cares about anyone here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some management skills by informing employees of chances before making massive chances last minute without anyone's input and downgrading job descriptions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a good company

    Senior Leader (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are decent.

    ConsThey want you to believe they care about patients. What they truly protect is the business office at the expense of patients and staff. Facilities that produce receive capital for safety and cosmetic needs. those facilities that need it the most GET NOTHING!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your hands dirty and go visit the facilities. Listen to the staff on the ground. The corporate office know little about what is happening at the local level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible, do not work there

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Saint Simons, GA

    ProsNon. Except maybe the health insurance and that is not great either.

    ConsThe nursing staff is horrible. They are arrogant and run around scared to death because their work load is so ridiculous. They push the duties they do not want to do off on lower level employees who are not qualified to do such duties. There is ridiculous time lines put on the employees and they are expected to perform at 100% accuracy. The nursing staff claims they care about their patents but all they do is get smart with the patients when they ask for something.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership is awful. They mislead potential employees how stressful a job can be there. Plus 12 hour shifts with only one 30 minute break for lunch is ridiculous.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Psychiatric Hospital

    Mental Health Tech (Current Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThis hospital has a good sense of team work.

    ConsOccasional low census. When this happens they send home employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep census up so employees do not lose pay.
