    Pros

    Many options for RN's, they promote from within, management cares for employees, all staff are treated as equals and valuable assets (from doctors to housekeeping), great team work, genuinely nice people, egalitarian culture, 4-5% yearly raises, generous PTO, supportive coworkers, nice patient population.

    Cons

    Working short staffed at times. But team work and excellent comradery make it tolerable, compensation is fair but could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there are enough nurses and staff so we can provide safe care and have an increasingly excellent reputation in the community.

    Pros

    competitive pay, good core values

    Cons

    old and outdated, lack of communication, very grumpy nursing staff (awful to work with)

    Advice to Management

    medical staff really needs an attitude check. Many patients and employees dislike coming to Altru because of their sour attitudes. I saw a patient lay in her own feces for over 30 minutes. I ran all over and talked to many nurses and CNA's who are trained in helping this fall risk patient cleaned up, and NO ONE would take responsibility and said it wasn't their problem, ask someone else. the was no huc to me found I felt bad for this patient covered in poop and tears because no one would help her. I reported this awful incident to my manager, hr and nothing was ever done about it. I don't care what your title is whether its a nurse, CNA or even Dr. if your trained to help a patient get cleaned up you should. After all the patients are the reason we are all here and ultimately the ones paying our paychecks!

  11. Altru is a great hospital to work for they treat their employees well as well as teach good motives for great patient ca

    Pros

    Good pay for the area

    Cons

    Parking isn't all that great

    Advice to Management

    Some upper management has issues with gossiping about employees, there is talking about them professionally and gossiping doesn't always make the employees feel comfortable at work
