    I worked at Alexian Brothers Health System

    Pros

    Many good people to work with.

    Cons

    Work life balance, in practice, is not the same as described in employee handbook. Employees are often stressed without option to give their input on how processes can be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture is mediocre at best. Make certain that management communicates clearly with staff.

    Pros

    The residents were the only good thing left.

    Cons

    This use to be a good place years ago...not anymore. Not enough staff to properly care for the residents and management is awful. There is a reason they have had around 30 nurses and cna's quit or be fired over the past year and a half. Management will throw their employees under the bus to protect themselves. They may seem nice at first and say they are a Christian organization...but from years of experience with them, their new management is anything but Christian. If you are considering working as a cna or nurse at Alexian of Signal Mountain, I would highly recommend getting in touch with some of their previous nurses or cna's and talking with them first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within your own team and you will find the real cause of the problems there. I truly wish the brothers would come in and talk with the employees or ex-employees, instead of the higher-ups. Then maybe they would see where the real problems are.

    Pros

    Flex hours
    Big desks
    Good benefits
    Employees are friendly and cafeteria food is pretty good!

    Cons

    Management are fake, it's all about favoritism, too much gossip even management gossips and are so rude. Your own team throws people under the boss. Management is sneaky and unprofessional. They don't acknowledge you at all especially when you leave the company. They pick and choose who they want to promote. If they don't like you they will find a way to get rid of you. Management makes everything difficult.
