    I have been working at Riverside Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Magnet designated hospital with a solid reputation offers benefits to part time and full time employees. After 1 year you may apply to transfer within.

    Cons

    The hospital is short staffed with high nurse to patient ratios. They boast about patient safety being their top priority, yet that doesn't reflect upon staffing.

    I worked at Riverside Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very nice, supportive and helpful (until they, too, quit or were fired)

    Cons

    HORRIBLE management. Draconian philosophy on how to treat employees like servants, with horrible pay to boot.

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? Treating employees horribly, where they can't get replacements when they are sick so bullied into coming in while ill. Bad pay. 1/2 hour lunch break. Clock in and out and if you work an extra 5 mins you're 'stealing from the company' because it might accumulate. Management act like dictators and are horrible non-leaders. Completely toxic and anxiety-causing environment. Change it.

    I have been working at Riverside Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People, the number one reason I enjoy working here is the people I work with. Everyone from front line people to the CEO are approachable and friendly. The second reason is, it's a healthcare facility and I love helping people.

    Cons

    Don't like the earned time structure, federal holidays, vacation and sick all rolled into one. This makes it difficult to save up time for a vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, as always listen to your employees.

    I worked at Riverside Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fellow co-workers are amazing. Great team work!

    Cons

    Management is a joke. They do not care about you. Be at your shift no matter what. They could care less about you issues. You call off it's like you committed a crime but the manager can call off when ever they feel necessary. You can go to HR and they are all idiots. They are not going to help you. This company DOES NOT care about the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking better care of your employees​. Start listening when they are complaining about a specific person. Stop pushing away when they try to come to you for help. I don't know how you are a magnet company. I will NEVER allow my family to come here.

    I worked at Riverside Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I did like and admire some of my coworkers, excluding management. In spite of a rocky departure I did learn a lot of valuable information. Pay and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Cut-throat management. People disappear overnight. This company doesn't honor contracts. Limited ability to work to the full extent of your licensure and education because of their privileging process--I'm talking about procedures. Absolutely no work / life balance. On call every night. If you are a new provider, stay clear of this place. Maybe come back later in your prime, otherwise you will be cut down.

    Advice to Management

    Somedays on my way to work I say, "Don't be a [starts with a d, rhymes with "ick"] today...that's my goal for the day...be nice to people" Try saying that to yourself on your way to work sometime, management. Say it with me.
