Negative Outlook

I have been working at North Kansas City Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Still has a traditional retirement plan.

Cons

NKCH used to be a great place to work. In recent years nurses are very unhappy and most are seeking employment elsewhere. Nursing management micromanages, and gives lip service with a smirk to autonomy. Nurses are routinely thrown under the bus when trying to be patient advocates. Don't expect respect. Administration demonstrates a lack of regard for professional nurses. I used to LOVE working here. Now it's all I can do to drag myself back each day.

    "Overall a decent place to work. If you are not in nursing, there is little opportunity for advancement."

    I worked at North Kansas City Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good. The hospital does a good job of making sure employees have great access to healthcare at a good price. The cafeterias are great. The smaller cafe makes dinner items to take home and entire holiday dinners. The parking garages are covered and safe. Security does a great job keeping the work environment safe.

    Cons

    Communication. The communication approach is definitely top down bottom up. Individual contributions are not encouraged. There is a definite lack of business processes and procedures. The lack of written documentation causes frequent rework. There is a fair amount of gossip, even in management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to implement better business processes. Written communication works well.
