Pros

great pay compared to some companies in the same industry.

Cons

not enough time off to take care of things with family kids etc, you only get 6 hours of vacation time to start per check and holidays have to come out of that, biweekly and it stays that way for 5 years then it goes to 8. They prorate the 6 hours if you call in any during that 2 week period so its not guaranteed.,Only allow you to make up 2 hours per month for doctor appt if you run out of time. if you do manage to save up some time good luck using it because only 2 associates are allowed off in one day incuding if someone has a half day scheduled but management can come in early or stay late to make up their time and save vacation which was not fair. Also they are very cheap rarely provide lunch or show employees appreciation, they don't give gifts like other companies during cs appreciation week , the gifts they get always come from dollar tree and its toys not adult items, I received a slinky and a piece of candy during the last cs appreciation week.

Advice to Management

Be more realistic 2 people off per day, only allowed to make up 2 hours per month and then you walk around looking at the associate like they owe you something. Have team meetings to communicate with your team and allow your team to communicate with each other, stop being so cheap and going to dollar tree to buy toys to give your associates for Appreciation week these are grown ups, how about items adults can use not toys from dollar tree they take home and give to their kids.

    Pros

    Higher pay scale in the area
    Large group, many areas for internal transfer
    OK benefits.
    No parking issues.

    Cons

    High nurse/patient ratios
    Management making decisions based on money but compromising patient care and safety.
    Understaffing physicians and nurses, lends itself to unsafe practices.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind the people actually doing the work when decisions are being made. Its our license on the line. Keeping 1 DR on in a busy ER at night is dangerous for evceryone!

    Pros

    Location, near to home. The pay was slightly better than with another larger teaching institution. Do not have to pay for parking. No stressful commute daily. Nice benefits(medical a little expensive, but affordable to me). Cafeteria at most locations is decent and inexpensive for employees.

    Cons

    Allied Health does not get the the same pay nurses get and we also have a 4 year BS degree. Slowness of corporate decision making. IT&S requests take way too much time to complete.

    Advice to Management

    If nurses can get paid $30-$40/ hr or more..then so should other Allied Health professionals with the same education and appropriate experience.
