    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Missouri Baptist Medical Center full-time


    Big Picture Outlook; BJC/MoBap have a mission and goals and they are communicated regularly
    Good facilities, clean environment, supplies on hand
    Good initial training


    Negative culture within many nurses especially senior nurses
    Too many/too often policy changes with poor explanation
    Odd management styles, biased communication, poor visibility, sense of favorites
    Significant red tape/unfairness regarding HR type issues such as: shifts (day/night), vacation, pay, cancels, etc

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do something about the culture change that is recognized as needed. Better prioritization/communication of new roll outs in education and policy. Higher wages to nurses to be more competitive with market and even other BJC hospitals. Be more fair with regards to handling employee issues and less favorites

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
