    I love working for this company. As long as your nurses know you are here for the residents, you will love it!

    they need help so bad, they are hiring mostly trash

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the young ghetto girls who are no good to the residents. we are here for them, not to just stay full of staff

    Pros

    At least the paychecks don't bounce. I also like working with some of the people who are dedicated and enjoyable. The CEO of the hospital in Elk Grove is a good person and good leader.

    Cons

    Poor and nonexistent leadership, leadership lies to employees, the pay doesn't match the pay at other hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of senior leaders and bring in some people who will actually do what they say instead of protecting their jobs.

    Pros

    It is an organization that is focused on healthcare and the patients that come through their doors. It is an organization of dedicated individuals that are bright, educated, and committed to their work. You have the ability to own your work and make an impact.

    Cons

    In the administrative side of operations, opportunities for advancement are limited to non-existent. Positions lower than director level can expect little fringe benefits. Due to focus on cost savings, salaried positions will see heavy workloads and average to excessive amounts of overtime. The merger into Ascension Health poses issues of policies and software that are lagging and add to the issues with workload.

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork. Fast paced environment. You get to do your job. Supportive managers. Good pay especially with experience.

    Cons

    Work / home balance could be better. Recently merged with Ascencion Health. Emphasis seems to be more on the bottom line now. New administration is not as attuned to the front line employees as the old administration was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an excellent group of employees who are in the health care field for the right reasons. Please listen to their ideas and suggestions for improvements.

    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced..experience..met nice colleagues..nice staff

    Cons

    Ever since the merger with Ascension and things have gotten worse - too many lay-offs, third party management that only care about making money not the bottom line(TriMedx). Within 2 years 2 directors and 2 managers gone and 6 others..which says a lot about their style:
    - Very political and narrow sided management
    - Favoritism at its best - hiring relatives and friends
    - Terrible financial decisions-Ascension merger
    - Very hostile work environment - favoritism - lot of gossiping by manager about employee
    - No promotions, reviews are metric based evaluation
    - Terrible benefits and life/work balance..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start reviewing middle management..focus on bottom line not the PROFIT..LIVE YOUR VALUES NOT JUST SAYING THEM..
