Change in Management is needed in order to restore Hope and Happiness amongst staff:

I had always been proud to say that I was apart of Mary Free Bed. On the outside they project so many positive outcomes. Unfortunately on the inside Management feels compelled to put their staff in fear of losing their job and continuously adding tasks. They honestly believe this mentality increases productivity.
Furthermore, they downsize their staff in order to meet budget by putting you on a 90 day PIP after you’ be been there for years. This is how they weed out the older/high paid staff and replace with younger, less experienced employees.
Management only cares about their bottom line, not their employees happiness. They use a micromanagement style that consistently adds stress daily.
They are not approachable or trustworthy when issues arise. Staff do not feel they can go to upper management for resolution as they are unable to remain impartial.
I just don’t understand why MFB continues to hold onto poor leaders and allow loyal hard working staff to either be downsized or leave due to poor working conditions. Many past employees continuously report this to HR without action and resolution.
