    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis

    Pros

    New hospital with new electronic medical record system implemented September 2014. Excellent leadership throughout organization. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is more concern towards reacting than listening to senior leadership. Will protect the employee and the about staff is the one always accused. HR needs to listen more than reacting as well.

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis

    Pros

    This is a large organization that has lots of opportunities. With multiple locations, multiple types of healthcare services and a fully integrated EMR they should perform well.

    Cons

    The organization has changed and left it's Christian roots and is turned into a profit seeking, expense reducing organization that does not care as much about people as it does about revenue. While they preach Christian values, senior and project management are no longer responsive to employee needs or concerns, and any conflicts or forced decisions come with the caveat "It's only about work."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the sound Christian principles on which the organization was founded, and treat your employees as valuable assets instead of as numbers and cost items to control. Treat others as you would have them treat you. People leave because they no longer believe you follow that golden rule spoken by Jesus Christ.

    Pros

    Medical services are good. One of the better hospitals in Memphis.

    Cons

    Terrible management, unfair and insensitive; poor representation of Christ. Low pay for those other than nurses. Some doctors are very rude and do not sanitize their hands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Show concern for all your employees.

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis

    Pros

    The benefits are decent. Once a month in the summer there is a farmer's market on campus.

    Cons

    Easy to top out in salary. Too many meetings that do not seem to ever result in any changes v

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people you hire. The people in the trenches have valuable information. Listen to what they say.

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Baptist has undergone a massive overhaul in the way they manage healthcare for their patients over the past few years. In a tough time for hospitals given ever decreasing payouts from insurance they have managed to make it through a major software and inventory system change.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction is fairly low most times and it often seems like major decisions are made without much input from employees, or at the very least without much beta testing to see if ideas can be made functional without a hindrance to patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain departments seem overworked and understaffed. Rewarding employees for their extra burdens rather than implementing new systems or ideas foster a greater sense of improvement.
