Overworked, underpaid, and under appreciated. High stress, burnout and compassion fatigue.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
- Staff are overworked, under paid, and under appreciated. Management gives great lip service but won’t take action and provide staff with what they really need (I.e. mental health days, an increase in vacation, an increase in pay, sufficient benefits, wellness budget, more staff, proper equipment, etc). Burnout and compassion fatigue is high and retention is low but instead of addressing the root problems they either ignore it and hopes it goes away or tries to bandaid fix it which only lasts for the short term. - The benefits are subpar considering working in a hospital is physically, emotionally and mentally difficult. You want to see a therapist to help with your emotional and mental health - you better be prepared to pay out of pocket. You want to see a physiotherapist or registered massage therapist on a relatively consistent basis, well you need to get a physicians referral and even then the insurance company will only allow you a couple of visits before they determine you don’t need it anymore. - Want to move up in your career? Well you better be the nephew of the CEO or good friends with the VP of patient services. They won’t hire or promote people that are the most qualified or best fit for the position. - Staff aren’t properly trained for their positions which results in poor team work and patient care. Again, instead of addressing the problem management just ignores it. Management asks for feedback but when it is given they don’t implement any of the feedback. - They hired a wellness person who runs a couple of workshops on deep breathing and how to sleep better. -

By far, my favourite and most rewarding job/career I've had

Very busy but incredibly rewarding. I work with an incredible amount of lovely people.


good pay, rewarding


Office politics within my own area certainly exist, flip flopping days and nights quite expensive benefit plan but not mandatory to have
