Pros: most of the co-workers very friendly and helpful, enjoyed working with the patients and their families
Cons: horrible benefits; low morale, understaffed/overworked, no management support
If you want a place to work with job security, advancement opportunities, good benefits, and honest and sincere management, this is NOT the place to work. The benefits are severely lacking and there is no education reimbursement or other employee incentives or appreciation programs as there are with other companies. There are definite cliques in the company and if you are not in with them, then you feel as though you are always on the chopping block. Which leads me to the "at will" to work clause which I feel was highly abused as witnessed to several more than competent co-workers that were released from their positions in the almost three years that I had worked there. There were no HR or disciplinary actions, just that they weren't needed for whatever reason even though they were way past their probation periods. This particular location does not cross-train, and does not pay overtime, therefore, the work that is piled on has to be done in the time frame, which means you work through breaks, and/or lunch (which you don't get paid for) or it looks as though you cannot handle your work load. They are highly understaffed, so you have to chase down people in order to get their work submitted in order for you to do your own work. Upper management will appear to care about your concerns but then they are never addressed or they will blow smoke up your *** about how great an employee you are and how valuable you are to the company, but beware, that's when the big blow will come.
Also, no team building or programs to build morale. Even holiday events are pot-luck with very little input from upper management.
