Horrible culture, demoralizing place to work
JUMP (Current Employee) – Peoria IL – July 27, 2017
The work itself is not an issue. The problem is that there is a culture that beats down anyone who comes in from the outside. I have watched it happen to three people in less than two years where they decided to quit on the spot instead of continue being put down every day by management, who forces employees to call them leaders. Leadership is the last thing most of the "managers" possess.
Management is made up of people who have been at OSF for years, and are stuck in the old way of thinking how things need to be done. This includes a mindset that it is my way or the highway. Don't bring your concerns to management. I have watched numerous employees be retaliated against for bringing up concerns, concerns about themselves and concerns about how others are treated. This got so bad I know people who will not even speak outside of meetings to anyone out of fear. Everyone is always depressed and demoralized. My whole team is always down and cannot wait to go home. The phrase "fake it till you make it" is used regularly. People are randomly put on levels for rules that are not even published or known, not only by their own managers, but outside managers who have little to no interaction with them. We have lost so many people that you do not even recognize people anymore. What is supposed to be an up beat working environment is instead quiet, reserved, and anything but upbeat. People literally look miserable and it just keeps getting worse.
