Pros

Many ICU, ER, OR nurses work here and find it a less stressful environment still able to find work fulfilling, maybe even more. Therefore, patients are served with top-notch care, RNs willing to share their knowledge with patients and other colleagues.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    No call, no holidays, no weekends. Nice facility. Good doctors to work with.

    Cons

    LOTS of favoritism with charge nurse and employees causing lots of resentment amongst co-workers. Unfair distribution of work amongst employees by charge nurse. Rules apply only to certain people.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an employee satisfaction survey where employees can voice their concerns without retaliation. i.e. anonymously via an outside, non-biased company.

    I have been working at Surgical Care Affiliates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a company on the move - growing their business and doing well financially. A very young and motivated leadership team with solid rapport among the staff.

    Cons

    Top leadership is solid, but some very shaky middle management. Unfortunately as the company has grown it's tended to simply promote what were perceived as the staff into management. This has led to some questionable management decisions and some very mediocre leaders in over their heads (eg Integration Leadership)

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring more 2nd tier management externally. There are a lot of talented candidates that can add value not only in their prior experiences, but in developing staff internally.
