    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    Poor outdated equipment.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.

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues, caring leadership, unmatched industry expertise, good work/life balance, good benefits package

    Cons

    The company has had a lot of leadership transition, which created unease for some as the culture and expectations changed- however, change isn't always a bad thing and the organization is on the right track.

    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).

    Pros

    Strong leadership in the Revenue Cycle provides opportunities for entry level employees to grow in their roles and seek advancement. Performance expectations are clear making it easy for staff to set and obtain personal goals. Tools such as training, quality audits and production guidelines help staff keep tabs on their own performance giving them the best chance to grow through accountability.

    On a more global level, the senior leadership walks the walk when it comes to honest, straight forward communication.

    Cons

    As with most large companies, some areas have stronger cultures than others. This can make it hard to work across department lines.

    Pros

    Good coworker camaraderie.
    Excellent for gaining experience.
    Plethora of job opportunities.

    Cons

    Not much of any support from upper management.
    Benefits are far from appealing and worsening.
    Healthcare insurance change for 2018 is a definite downgrade.
    Pay is mediocre at best.
    Expectations are outrageous.
    No EIB.
    Understaffed.
    High RN turnover.
    Financial reimbursement for school now requires commitment to NE Med.
    Always asked to do more with less from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    If we are to be our own Chief Retention Officers, give us a reason to want to retain one another.

    Pros

    The overall environment is great. Being that it's a not-for-profit, there's a genuine sense of caring among employees and leadership. There have also been great changes recently made to help move the organization forward. Work life balance is pretty great as well.

    Cons

    Due to previous stagnant leadership, we are still a little behind in some technologies and policies, but it seems as if they are slowly getting to where they need to be.
