Pros

Some very good and caring lower level workers.

Cons

Upper level management shows very little appreciation for staff. Pay is low. Lower level nursing staff is mandated to stay double shifts even though there are several management nurses in the building. Apparently, they are "too good" to do actual patient care and prefer to keep exhausted, overworked LPNs on the floor for 16 hour shifts, passing medications.

Advice to Management

Get a competent DON in this building. HR department is great.

    Pros

    Volunteers of America, Utah is a exceptionally run non-profit. Their focus on efficiencies and quality services is greatly valuable to Salt Lake City and the state of Utah. The agency provides great ability to develop and advance.

    Cons

    The agency has experienced similar challenges as other nonprofits in Salt Lake City related to budget cuts. Good opportunities for growth, but leadership positions are highly coveted.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership does a good job at being present in the community. I would encourage them to do more of this, and develop additional services.
