Heard great things. Not impressed.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Medford, OR – June 10, 2017
Accepted a lower salary at an ambulatory clinic in order to work for what was purportedly the top of the food chain as far as local medical organizations are concerned. "Top 100 hospitals", etc., etc. Turned down multiple competing job offers, all better paid, in order to work there.
Contrary to what I was sold, instead of a busy and fast paced clinic environment, what I found was a predominantly idle workplace with a concerning level of gossip and backbiting.
Coming from another hospital environment wherein staff worked very, very hard, and there was little time for drama, it was almost comical to watch the histrionic responses staff gave to actually having to do something in this clinic. Likewise, the emphasis and time spent on debating and incessantly revisiting administrative minutia was ridiculous. Constructive feedback was unwelcome, and was perceived as threatening. Conflict was addressed via closed door complaints rather than direct and constructive resolution.
I can't speak as to the culture of the entire organization, but my experience in this individual department was disconcerting to say the least.
They say idle hands are the devil's workshop.
