There are reasons why nearly half the staff quit at the same time.
Pros: Competitive compensation, friendly atmosphere
Cons: direct management micromanages department, lost all autonomy, management isn't open to change, very slow to get access, benefits are only this system (if you need help but are not in the area you will be self pay), no breaks (except lunch)
I started work prior to orientation because the department was so desperate for help. It's been a while now and I still cannot clock in or access the program to examine patient data.
Management is unwilling to change procedures to optimize the department's success and allow deliveries to be timely (the procedural change was to be on par with other facilities throughout the state). Even the most basic changes that wouldn't, under normal circumstances, require any approval require a management approval, which would result in management reverting the change back to the original status anyway. Most staff does things without approval (this isn't a bad thing), because otherwise nothing would be appropriated properly. Management is also so obsessed with waste but doesn't bother to "recycle" usable items and instead throws things away and only wants the bare minimum ordered.
Management covers multiple departments but only "manages" this one. The other departments don't have a "director" and are essentially running themselves.
Most of the people in this department has been in the field nearly 10 years but management treat staff like they have ZERO experience.
The department itself is so small that it needs to be moved to allow for more space. Storage is actually kept in the hallway or is shared in a remote location (on site) with other departments.
