    Pros

    Small unit. Have time to interact with the patients. Feel like the staff is family. Easy to communicate with other shifts.

    Cons

    No per diem staff to fill in for sick or vacation time. Some people try to be managers when indeed, they are not.

    Advice to Management

    Need per diem staff desperately. This causes real morale problems amongst the staff.

    Pros

    Sufficient benefits package and competitive wage rates

    Cons

    Very weak management. Examples of poor leadership that I have personally witnessed in both departments with multiple staff:

    1. Scapegoating entry-level staff to escape accountability for managerial mistakes.
    2. Overt favoritism
    3. Supervisors taking credit for staff ideas
    4. Supervisors heavily reprimanding staff based on personality traits and not job performance
    5. Supervisors committing time theft and altering records to cover up personal tardiness
    6. Supervisors disregarding input from staff and not validating their feelings or suggestions, even when they are very good
    7. Supervisors are territorial and petty with their own staff and other departments. Quick to blame others and delfect responsibility instead of work together to solve an issue
    8. A heavy bias towards seniority that negatively impacts the job
    9. Convoluted and sometimes even incomplete policies that contradict each other
    10. Spotty training with excessive consequences when staff make inevitable mistakes
    11. Calling in staff at absolute last minute to require schedule changes, and making schedule changes without notifying staff then reprimanding staff for not showing up

    Advice to Management

    Vet your middle management much more thoroughly to ensure leadership skills. Perform efficiency audits for supervisors and utilize entry-level staff for reviews. I've watched so many intelligent and motivated staff leave positions due to weak management - and its painful to watch such qualified employees leave.

    Overall, working here has been a painfully frustrating experience. People are promoted because of who they know, regardless of suitability. The systems and policies are dangerously scattered and disorganized, and frankly put patients in danger. I've witnessed several egregious occasions when patients' welfare has been recklessly ignored because of laziness and pettiness.
    I continually submit anonymous feedback to our compliance line, because I have been openly punished for pointing out faulty policies that put patients in danger. I've watched my boss question my fellow coworkers to ferret out who "squealed" so I'm well aware of backlash for whistle blowing.

    I've been repeatedly denied career advancement despite my credentials and am currently looking for employment somewhere that values ethics over ego.

    I worked at WellSpan Health part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance. Good pto, and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Management is seriously lacking. I found the workplace to be extremely clique-y, not very warm to "outsiders". Staff was EXTREMELY judgmental to the certain patients, therefore affecting the care that was provided to them. Nursing assistants were performing tests and procedures that were COMPLETELY out of their scope. My position was a new one to the particular office, and the orientation was sub par.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your employees on cultural awareness.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for because of the people. They are always pleasant and helpful regardless of your stress at the moment. Managers have your back, support and team work has been unprecedented in my career thus far.

    Cons

    It is a large organization and sometimes things fall through the cracks despite the best processes actively put in place. Humans make mistakes anywhere you go.

    Innovative, fast-paved environment. The resources available for patients and employees are awesome. Leadership is present and engaged.
