    Pros

    The benefits are great (PTO, ELB, health, dental, etc). In class training was good. Position was particularly an everyday challenge which I liked, not the same old routine over and over. I generally got along with everyone there. Service Excellence training was wired into everyone that worked there.

    Cons

    Pay does not match your workload. Managers like to pass along tasks rather than learn and show us on the floor. PTO was a battle to take even though it was your personal time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time-off needs to be less strict and management needs to realize that us floor people are not robots.

    Pros

    I honestly can just say it's a job.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible and constantly get cut. Only care about filling beds and how to profit from whose in them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should focus more on your employees. Happier work environment and perks make for better workers; therefore a better company. Look at Google.

    Increase salaries to be competitive with your competition.

    Pros

    Good benifits, good learning experience for most.

    Cons

    This is not a good place for new grads. Please go to acute care hospital first for a year. Management tends to try to cater to the newer nurses, even though those hired for their experience, are over looked for supervisory positions.

    Current Employee - Project Management in King of Prussia, PA (US)

    Pros

    the building has Air conditioning...that's it.

    Cons

    This place has no respect for the employees. Everything is about the bottom line and how much bonuses the managers/directors can squeeze in. The PTO days are very little and there is no compassion for anyone. People are rather insensitive and nobody really cares about anyone here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some management skills by informing employees of chances before making massive chances last minute without anyone's input and downgrading job descriptions.

    Current Employee - Senior Leader
    Current Employee - Senior Leader

    Pros

    Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    They want you to believe they care about patients. What they truly protect is the business office at the expense of patients and staff. Facilities that produce receive capital for safety and cosmetic needs. those facilities that need it the most GET NOTHING!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your hands dirty and go visit the facilities. Listen to the staff on the ground. The corporate office know little about what is happening at the local level.
