    I have been working at CHRISTUS Spohn Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great teamwork on most units and learned a lot. Flexible work schedule for the most part.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great; didn't get a raise until over two years after I started working there. Got hired in at a certain rate (Corpus is considerably lower than national average), but found out other new grads were getting hired in at a couple more dollars an hour. As an experienced nurse, it was discouraging to find out that loyal, experienced employees were not getting paid at least the going rate or more. Upper management requires more and more of employees and does not compensate accordingly. They need to do more to retain their loyal employees as there were high turnover rates at times. I have also seen that they are trying to recruit from other cities and states, and are offering a ton more (even bonuses) money than what they pay their current employees. If you can get hired in from that angle, then that's the way to go. I would only recommend this job to a friend because most of the employees are awesome.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and do more to retain good employees. I would imagine, in the long run, it should save the company money as you have less new employees to train/orient, etc...

  10. CHRISTUS cannot fully sustain a Level III NICU with appropriate nursing staff and has gone down hill significantly!

    Pros

    Work schedule of 7 on 7 off is great; direct boss is usually cool!

    Cons

    Administration does not care about patients or employees, Patient safety is very scary!

    Advice to Management

    I wish someone that made the financial/budget decisions, actually worked undercover on the front line to see how the patients are actually treated!

    Pros

    none-targeting and lying are the norm for management and other associates.

    Cons

    Major shift in management many times. People put into management positions had little or no training. Lying to employees was the norm for many people. They do not even come close to adhering to their mission statement. Middle management bullies and targets people that come to them with issues and do not try to resolve any issues. Techs go outside their scope of practice on a daily basis and nothing is done. Dangerous place to work if you want to keep your license.

    Advice to Management

    Review your own mission statement!!! Stop the lying and targeting of good nurses otherwise you will end up with the "bottom of the barrel"!! Pt grievances need to be thoroughly investigated along with the pt history!! Pt's are NOT always right!! Reassess management culture and values....they are very bad at this time.
