    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are very friendly and patient focused. Flexible schedules help with work-life balance. Nurse education opportunities are available....some departments are presented with more opportunities than other departments.

    Cons

    The yearly performance review process inadequate. Compensation lower than other area hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review current pay structure to be more inline with other area hospitals.

    Pros

    The co-workers are amazing. Great people with hard work ethic.

    Cons

    Horrible pay
    No appreciation
    Short staffed
    Tons of work to do with no help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees, not just nurses. Look at your overturn rates. Maybe you'd save money if you realized how many people are leaving.

    Pros

    Excellent place and mostly great employees

    Cons

    A few employees were more interested in saving face than telling the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sodexo and a few of your older truth deceptive employees are the reasons I cut my throat by retiring about 4 years too early.
