    I have been working at Bon Secours Health part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has allowed me to get back in the workplace after a layoff. They offer benefits and plenty of other great perks.

    Cons

    The department management where I started off in was a little inconsistent with their rules and allowances. Things we were told we could do when we first came aboard were rejected as we went along in the role. Pretty inconsistent...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so inconsistent when you find out someone wants to advance to other opportunities within the company.

    Pros

    Room to grow and learn
    Great team
    Corporate events were usually fun and well organized

    Cons

    Compensation was poor, very corporate and slow to make decisions, hired as intern and position transitioned to FT, but no change in pay. Also team was unable to add appropriate position to department, so there was little to no recognition for work being completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct managers were great, but higher ups were slow to respond and make decisions. Compensate your employees fairly.

    Pros

    Great mission and culture. People focused company with management that embodies delivering good healthcare. The company in many ways integrates with the community it supports.

    Cons

    Too many meetings for meetings; also layers of management and old school thought process, get in the way of quick, decisive action plans. Much of the leadership have come through the same chanels, need to diserfy expertise to include manged care, ambulatory, non-healthcare leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create pathways to develop leadership

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. In my experience, management did a good job overall. Employees were wonderful.

    They are slow to hire, and we worked with a shortage most of the time. At times the nurses seemed very overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employee's concerns.

    I worked at Bon Secours Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Faith-based organization with strong values. Multiple life-long employees, implying that it is a healthy company to work for long term.

    Cons

    The values are pushed during hiring, but not consistently lived out on a daily basis. Management does not live out these values. Also, as a private health system they are not competitive with salaries as compared to the general area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow a greater flow of employee feedback to management and directors. Encourage lower level managers to live out the values of the healthcare system, and expect them to, just as the directors and upper level management is expected to. Provide for employees going through a work-related injury, above and beyond the bottom-level requirements by the commission. I was forced to resign due to a work-related injury, and my job was not protected.

    Management does not hold physicians to the company's values. Docs say and do what they want w/o fear!

    I have been working at Bon Secours Health

    Pros

    There are people who are truly there to serve. The company's mission and value statements are strong and meaningful, and when they are top of mind, great work happens.

    Cons

    Everyone is not being held to the same standard from senior management down. Unfortunately, individuals that that are not being held accountable know all to well that they will not be dismissed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your culture is being shaped by your physicians not by you. This is not good. Their negative talk and behavior undermine your mission. They need to be held accountable instead of catered to. Spoiled children that throw tantrums should not be rewarded or tolerated. Just a thought.

    I worked at Bon Secours Health

    Pros

    Great opportunities for early careerists. Excellent health and work life benefits. Strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. Very strong leadership and collaborative decision making.

    Cons

    Highly matrixed organizational structure sometimes leads to lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities. Also, local systems are not always aligned with corporate office. Geographic spread and differences in service line mixes sometimes create silos within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider redesigning and or simplifying the organizational structure to alleviate silos and foster clarity of roles and responsibilities.
