Pros: loved helping the children
Cons: management by threat
I loved the patients and my coworkers but management tactics leave a lot to be desired. The constant threatening tone of emails decreased moral in an otherwise pleasant work environment. Every email addressed department wide concluded with "failure to comply will result in immediate disciplinary action", " will be reflected negatively on your evaluation", or such wording. Emails lost their effectiveness and generally left the entire staff feeling like their every move was under heavy scrutiny. The feeling of walking on eggshells was ever present.
Often, during busy times, lunch breaks were not available. Another such email stated that even if a charge nurse signed a slip that no lunch was taken, management threatened to deny and deduct 30 minutes anyway.
