There are no pay increases ever! Too much turnover due to low pay and no benefits to field staff beyond 401k. No vacation, sick time. If you get sick and can't go to work, you don't get paid. This Encourages sick nurses to go to homes sick and risk patients health. No incentives given to work weekends. Cases are low staffed and quality of nurses is compromised. No company Christmas party. It's embarrassing to say you've been working somewhere many years as a dedicated provider and don't have any of these things. And the yearly Christmas gifts are junky 10 dollar items at best. Many improvements needed!

PSA merged with American Airlines just as I was hired as a Flight Attendant. The changeover was hectic due to changes in policies and procedures. Our Union Leaders met with Management on many occasions to fight for our ability to have ten hours of rest between flights instead of eight. Also, we were provided with new uniforms that caused many of us to become ill with various medical problems. Some of my co-workers ended up having surgery for illness due to the chemicals in the fabric. I would have like the CEO to listen to us more on all issues that we faced.

Work on engaging staff to innovate, open to ideas or suggestions that will foster team building and help promote team growth, meet team/unit goals. Create ways to help recognize and appreciate ALL employees --- appreciation is key. Clearly communicate any changes that are imminent and allow employees to adapt to those changes by providing necessary tools and resources to enable them to do their jobs and respond positively to these constant changes in a consistent manner.
