    Pros

    Great energy among staff and serious commitment to work/life balance from the execs. Good benefits, great mission, and smart people.

    With all the work to grow and expand, existing products aren't getting the support they need to be successful.

    Get rid of the dead weight on the staff.

    Matrix structure can be challenging without clear grasp of objectives and the role each member/department needs to play.

    Pros

    Not much when employee bullying overshadows all else. Some nice people.

    Cons

    No support from HR.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to sponsor talks around the country about nurse bullying, then take care of those problems internally and stop being hypocrites.

    At AORN, we expect employees to model AORN’s Core Values and treat one another with respect. Bullying in the workplace is not tolerated, and we have mechanisms in place for employees to report... More

    I have been working at AORN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, competitive pay for any company - let alone an nonprofit, really wonderful coworkers and managers who are all working towards the same, clear missions and goals. Linda, the CEO, is a wonderful person who will stop and chat with anyone in the hall, no matter your job title. Everyone works together as a true team, and while no one gets along 100% of the time, everything is handled in a way you'd expect from professionals.

    Cons

    You can tell the company has been through some massive changes in the past few years, and there are still teams trying to regain their footing. In spite of this, most people seem to be very helpful and understanding as teams reorg and continue to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring for positive attitudes and keep investing in your employees - it really does show how much the company cares about who works for them.

    I worked at AORN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good benefits, lots of employee engagement

    Cons

    no room for advancement, and favoritism is so rampant its impossible to get assistance with it, HR will tell you to talk to that person directly, making everything very difficult

    Advice to Management

    they have been told how to correct issues, they still don't...maybe just listen to all of the surveys we have to fill out.....and quite getting rid passionate people?

    Pros

    Nice building and undercover parking.

    Cons

    Benefits used to be good, but management cut. Not up to competitive companies.

    Advice to Management

    Wake-up and take a realistic look at reality. You are so out of touch!

    Pros

    Benefits such as a generous PTO, good health care, and 401k matching are nice. AORN has a good work/life balance which leads to lower stress. Even in IT/Development I am able to leave my work at work for the most part, which is very rare for anyone in this field. Managers in the IT/DEV area are great to work with.

    Cons

    Communication between departments can be lacking.
