    I have been working at Nebraska Medicine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance. I truly am able to disconnect from my work when I leave for the day. Senior leadership cares about the people and is focused on making the necessary changes to make Nebraska Medicine a great care provider and place to work. There is lots of positive change happening! Leadership really does operate with positive intent and strives to do what is best for the organization and the employees.

    Cons

    There are a fair amount of employees who are resistant to change and are vocal about it. So it can seem like there is a lot of negativity when that is not necessarily the reality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward on your strategic goals and mission!

    I worked at Nebraska Medicine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was good, flexible hours were good. I kept busy.

    Cons

    If you are fresh out of school or don't have a family or social life this is the place for you. Zero work/life balance. Cost of benefits is ridiculous. $12,000 out of pocket before they will pay anything. If you have a chronic medical condition or a child that does, you are out of luck. Taking FMLA or any time off is frowned upon. They are currently trying to get rid of seasoned employees so that they can hire new employee for half the salary. Unreasonable productivity standards. They went with the medical plan that would cost the least for the company, hoping to save $20 million, instead it ended up costing them $16 million in lost revenue. Many employees stopped going to the doctor or taking their meds, causing more health problems in the long run, which means more time off. They operate on a sick/PTO points program that is just ridiculous . Senior management treats the employees like children, they assume you do not understand basic life skills.

    Advice to Management

    Better work/life balance and better benefits. Cut the CEO's salary and use that to get hourly employees better medical benefits. Stop thinking about money and more about people.

    Pros

    Decent facility with moderately flexible hours/shifts. They do care about both employee and patient safety.

    Cons

    Unfortunately toxic leadership has makes decisions based on company political and personal views causing downstream problems for the actual workers. If you want to work here be fore warned that the lab/path leaders do not care about their workers, their bottom line is the dollar bill. If you can deal with that than you'll survive. They finally have started to force their managers to go to leadership training after years of poor managerial reviews.

    Advice to Management

    There are workers under you who survive on this job...everytime you make a big decision think of who you are affecting first.

    Pros

    Few and far between anymore.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue what or how things get done.
    Short staffed ALWAYS.
    Poor outdated equipment.
    Things have gone off the rails.
    Benefits have gone from bad to worse, better off on insurance exchange.

    Advice to Management

    Get managers that know what's going on. One position has turned over 17 times.

    I have been working at Nebraska Medicine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn as a new nurse. You will have plenty of time to pick up bonus shifts as every unit is very short staffed. Most doctors are quick to respond and actively listen to nursing concerns for their patients.

    Cons

    Management is not very motivating and they make it impossible to transfer within the organization if your floor is short staffed. Management promotes people with little experience which is very unsafe for patients. The leads are always in their office and some days you have no idea who they are since they are never around to help. The acuity of the patients make the burnout rate very high. It seems like the organizations pays more attention on research/patient satisfaction but little attention on employee satisfaction and retention. The benefits suck, for more coverage you have to go to a Nebraska medicine affiliated facility. Also, for nurses week they thank their nurses by giving out a free lip balm donated by metro credit union. They sure know how to treat their employees right.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the floor more often so you actually know what’s going on. You pay a lot of attention to new grads but you need to pay closer attention to the employees that have been at the organization over a year. Say thank you to your staff for all their hard work. Managers say things that are criticizing (often times they make false accusations since they are never around) and in their defense they say it’s constructive criticism (this isn’t constructive criticism).
