Pros

They pay really well and guarantee raises every year. Some people there were making 80K after being there for only 4 years, with no real marketable skills or training that merits that type of pay.

Cons

Expect to work 16 hours a day, every single day of the week. It also sucks if you are paired with a jerk as your mentor when you start out

Advice to Management

Screen applicants and potential employees better.

    I have been working at National Nurses United full-time

    Pros

    Money is great till you likely figure out your hourly rate. Some make a lot more than $50K, so don't settle.
    The actual nurses are great, but you don't work for them. Rank & file employees can be pretty great.
    Staying at Hilton, etc. is cool, but you'll probably share the room.
    Could be worse. Could be SEIU.

    Cons

    People don't take free advice. I ignored the sexism & abuse mentioned in reviews & guess what I found?

    If you don't mind feeling ineffectual & lurking in dark parking lots/garages recruiting nurses at 6am & 6pm & evading security, then cool.

    Great job for political type personalities. If you care deeply, this will be hard. Jaded realist who can game the system? You may like this.

    You'll be in a toothless staff union working for a union---and get this, you basically have no rights (just cause) for over a year. That kind of hippocracy sums it up.

    "The movement" is sadly mostly a slick veneer run by hacks who talk a good game. It's just like corporate culture only it exploits people hearts. Oh well, it's not like fascism is a threat, right?
    .

    Advice to Management

    Retire. Your generation has been responsible for the labor movement since it's decline in 70s. Whose been in charge for the past few decades? Coincidence? Prepare for National Right to Work. Thanks for the endless compromise & keeping down anyone (especially women) a threat to the throne for decades.
