    Pros

    Great compensation with excellent benefits that rewarded longevity and worth to the company. Let your practice decide what worked best for them and not a cookie cutter mold like other healthcare companies.

    Cons

    Clinical management wasn’t always sure of who to contact for certain questions asked and their upper management would rarely know either, so many things went unanswered.

    Advice to Management

    Have a list of hierarchy for management, so they know who to ask questions.

    Pros

    The employees care about each other on a below manager level

    See the value in your current employees


  6. "Great Core Values, poor senior nursing management"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    1. More competitive wages (at times this company catches up with market rate), Core values are great
    2. Safety becoming more of a priority (to a point).

    Cons

    1. Senior management (nursing, and some nursing directors), are comparably uneducated with other organizations senior management, cannot look outside the small box, and will eliminate middle management at will.
    2. Sees the bottom line as THE primary priority (very slowly able to connect safety to cost savings, and no clue as to true cost of turnover)
    3. Allows disrespectful, laterally violent staff to become virtually untouchable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff for management that are educated with appropriate degrees
