Nepotism Will Get You Hired
Some departments in HR are blantant with nepotism, hiring friends at top of pay scales, giving raises despite a salary freeze, etc. It's great if you're the person who is besties with the leader. Star talent leaves the organization because of no opportunity to grow. It's great if you are in a unionized position. Better pay and someone to actually fight for you when management tries shady things.

Work life balance, opportunity to grow depending on who you know
Poor pay if you join in a non-union position.
The team I worked with has worst manager. My manager is somewhat racist and moody. Also, team talks a lot about team work during meetings but in real life they all work in Silos. Hated my work at AHS like anything. No Scope to enhance your career path. No one talks about career goals. Director and Manager talks everything like buddies and they underestimate other employees capabilities
Good Salary, life work balance
No career growth, works manager
I have worked for AHS in a non-union position for over 8 yrs and in that time have had no increase due to government and senior leadership cost cutting, while unionized positions and senior leadership have year over year seen between 1-3% increases. New staff is also hired at higher salaries (current market rates) while those who have been dedicated employees have gotten no recognition or cost of living increases. A lot of non-union employees work second jobs just to make ends meet. Workloads tend to increase above what staff are able to reasonably manage due to the cost cutting.
In general, a well organized workplace with numerous opportunities in a variety of nursing fields, lots of lateral mobility to try different areas of nursing and plenty of flexibility for casual, part time, temporary, or full time work. A generally collaborative and team-based environment.
