    I worked at Truman Medical Centers

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Limited resources, supplies, and staffing to care for patients. Upper management gets very high percentage raises while the other 95% are lucky to get 1% yearly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and support further education and certifications and increase pay accordingly. Staff according to census. Work on employee satisfaction/retention.

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people. Simple as that, the people there are incredible! I worked there in IT for almost 10 years and when I left felt like I left a good portion of myself there. The benefits were not too bad.

    Cons

    Senior management really did not interact nor engage the lower ranks of the hospital. I got the feeling that we were there servicing them half the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of your offices from time to time and find out what we are doing. Sometimes we do need your help you know?

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, busy work environment lots of trauma.

    Cons

    Departments are taxed with patients. Busy weekends with low staffing and high acuity patients. Department heads don't realize how taxing things are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the little people, give us a pat on the back instead of harping on the negative all the time.

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers

    Pros

    The benifits are great compaired to other hospitals.
    Flexabliity in time needed off are reasonable.

    Cons

    Performance - extra work are noticed, but not mentioned that you did a good job, or thank you for taking it apon yourself for doing that.
    Pay I feel is under the cost of living level.- Needs a new cost of living raise. Last one was 5-7 yrs ago.

    Pros

    The mission of the hospital is great

    Cons

    Sometimes, people forget what a "safe haven" is. More concerned with appearances vs. the help that people really need. Some of the clinical employees look down on the people they are suppose to be helping.

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers

    Pros

    Was pay but that is starting to lag along with recent cut in benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership is fairly naive. Very resistant to consult with physicians and nurses regard actual patient care strategies. Upper management believes a business degree in health care administration enables them to direct patient care.
