    Pros

    There is no good reason to work for or with them. Run away!!!!!!

    Cons

    Terrible training, done by the CEO, sometimes an account manger who was once a terrible recruiter.
    Bait and switch when it comes to your pay because you're having to "guess" how many nurses you will have on contract a year in advance! Does this sound right to you?
    If you don't have that # of nurses working that month then you don't make commission. HELLO!!! This is basically stealing and pretty much illegal!
    Favortism is beyond obvious.
    The CEO is absent for weeks at a time.
    I think there's two CEO's but the other one is never there.
    Lots of promises unkept.
    The mamagent thinks the company is a big deal, it's not. The company is below average when compared to other travel companies.
    The CEO yells at his RN's on contract as well as his employees. I've personally heard it and it's pretty embarrassing. He degrades his workers and doesn't see a problem with it.
    There's a margarita machine--whoopdy do!!
    They reward you with alcohol.

    Pros

    In the beginning, it seems like a great place to work

    Cons

    Once you get pass the CEO's fake enthusiasm, you start seeing how is tends to bully his employees. If you don't work into his ideals (professional and personal), he will take you to bully. He will try to intimidate you, yell at you, and create an uncomfortable work environment until you quit or he fires you. Giving productive criticism when he asks for one is not wise because he will use your opinions against you later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to take constructive criticism, if someone disagrees with you , it is not an attack on your character.

    BAIT AND SWITCH IS RIGHT! Very unethical and inconsiderate practices used by management. How can they sleep at night?!?

    Pros

    They were efficient about requesting all your HR employee paperwork to get you in their system and find you a job.

    Cons

    Unethical practices being used by this company to get traveling nurses in a position to make them feel like they have to accept less than the original contract signed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professional management and communication skills are definitely in need of major improvement.

    Pros

    Unfortunately I don't see any pros working for them.

    Cons

    Small company that acts like they're a fortune 500 company. They micromanage their employees and put unprofessional and unqualified employees in management roles. They treat their nurses and employees with no respect...If you are considering becoming an employee or working for them as a nurse...I would run away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inconsistent management and business practices. Poorly run company... the people in management capacity are unprofessional and incompetent.

    I worked at Valley Healthcare Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I only worked one contract with this company. I really enjoyed having 3 different supervisors/ recruiters within 3 months !! :(

    Cons

    Get everything in writing, make sure you cross all t's and dot all i's, I did not get my extra 30 per hour for holiday pay as promise per first recruiter prior to them leaving the company/ I worked 2 out of 3 winter holidays. Had to argue for my no break pay/ Cali has a mandatory break penalty for no adequate break times, Do not take tax advantage/ it is only advantage for the companies/ I had to pay my own housing est. at least 500/week that was the cheapest and closest to facility in an dreaded isolated ( Fort Bragg) town/ high ETOH/METH area. I asked for PPO insurance but instead was given HMO in Cali...a crime in itself. You need adequate and better coverage to received the best care to pick your own physician/specialist and/or consultations if needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hospital pays all the different agencies the same amount. Stop the nickel and dime act with the traveler.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Challenging job. Flexible work schedule offered for good performance. Good pay. Management is open and helpful. They really want their employees to succeed.

    Cons

    Company sometimes struggles to maintain consistency. However, that's more the result of the industry as opposed to management. Unless company grows, there is limited potential for advancement.

    Miserable experience in a poorly managed, unprofessional environment.

    I worked at Valley Healthcare Systems

    Pros

    The organization serves vulnerable, underserved populations and is meant to be a comprehensive primary care and behavioral health center.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed with questionable employment practices. Favoritism and nepotism are the norm. Most employees are not held accountable while others are micromanaged and not picked. Highly degreed Professionals are treated like flunkies while "favored" employees are granted titles and responsibilities that they may not be qualified for. Lack of proper supervision or guidance and failure to respond to legitimate employee grievances and customer complaints leads to hostile work place. Poor fiscal managment. Extremely poor management decisions.
