    Pros

    I loved working for this company. You get to meet a lot of great people and it was pretty easy labor for the pay (on most days).

    Cons

    It's really hard to get terminated and people know that so they slack off and management does nothing about it.

    Pros

    Able to make my own schedule (home health).
    Benefits eligible for part time
    There are usually snacks at meetings.

    Cons

    I have to drive my own car. I am reimbursed for mileage but taxed on it as earnings. Full time is given a car. I would like a car too.
    Full time is considered 40 hours. I think it should be considered 32-40 hours.

    Advice to Management

    I like the freedom and trust from most management. I have one manager that I'm not quite sure about yet...she is nice but seems fake about it and seems to have a power trip. That's a big turn off for an employee.

    Pros

    The staff are great at SFMC, they try to work with what little they have.

    Cons

    Wow, things are definitely changing at PSF. The overall feeling is we are whipped, Centura Health as a system is lacking. Since Magnet status at PSF nurse retention is terrible, benefits are awful.(I guess we are lucky we have them) They have taken away EIB at 100% which we earned each pay period and replaced it with STD which pays 60%. Health insurance premiums have gone up, and don't even think of getting a job if you smoke, they won't hire you. After all these years we are going to cut your PTO time in half to "promote systemness and consistency in our policies" such crap! Oh and you really need to use your vacation time or we are going to take any excess away that you were not able to use!

    Advice to Management

    How about trying to keep what staff you have happy and work on retention. It feels like a revolving door, just when some one is oriented they move on. Try living up to your mission statement. Staff are not happy at St. Francis with the current administrative team, they are puppets for Penrose. The CEO and CNO need to spend a whole week at SFMC (preferably not in their offices)and see how busy we are and that we are a great bunch of employees who care about each other and our patients. We are no longer the little hospital on the hill!

    Pros

    The company tries to make you feel appreciated.

    Cons

    Showering appreciation doesn't outweigh underpaying.

    Advice to Management

    Refrain from putting managers and supervisors above others by making it clear distinction of who is a peon and who is not.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to learn and fine tune your skills. Vacation time accrual and 401K is better than more places.

    Cons

    Benefits are awful!! Very expensive premiums for a plan that is limited to centura approved providers with high out of pocket costs. Lack of diversity in the IT dept - Minorities should not waste their time here since your opportunities will be very limited. Forget about doing anything aside from Help desk or maybe desktop support. Lack of proper staffing will ensure burning out from the job quickly. Too many non IT people who do not even know basic troubleshooting of computers are running things. This place loves to promote from the outside and leave good people to rot in their roles.

    Advice to Management

    Try to actually care about your people. I would think with the all the meetings you have that perhaps employee satisfaction would have made it to one of your powerpoint presentations.

    Pros

    -flexibility within department
    -encouragement to share innovative ideas
    -hands-on direct management, consistent encouragement and acknowledgment of good work
    -opportunity for growth within department
    -faith-based (can actually enjoy Christmas decorations at work, morning and evening prayers, Christmas caroling, acknowledging God's work through our own)

    Cons

    -benefits and insurance could definitely be better
    -silly politics within larger inter-facility department, lack of inter-departmental teamwork among "sister" Centura Health facilities

    Advice to Management

    Please concentrate on making employee insurance and benefits more competitive with the entities that are most likely to lure our employees (namely, Kaiser). It is disheartening to hear how amazing the benefits are for those at other companies. This, unfortunately for Centura, will continue to tempt and successfully take wonderful Centura employees until Centura Health addresses this issue.

    Pros

    Centura makes attempts to be a good employer but experiences vary in each department, and are very dependent on the personality of the manager

    Cons

    --Care management services at Penrose is an extremely dysfunctional and abusive workplace. There is poor support and lack of direction from the managers especially with difficult cases. Managers waste huge amounts of the staff's time complaining about their own jobs instead of providing leadership in difficult situations.
    --Employees have no voice, people are harassed for their input and then publicly criticized and maligned, satisfaction survey results are used against the staff. Verbal assaults and yelling are a common and accepted means of communication.
    --No education for the staff, no connection with national organizations, no legislative updates even when changes in the laws impact job knowledge.
    --Transfers and promotions are based in favoritism, not competence
    --Inadequate number of prn staff to cover for time off, puts additional burden on the regular staff to cover other units when they can barely keep ahead of their own workload.

    Advice to Management

    Care management services is an important department regarding the overall functioning of the hospital.
    It is time to make some major changes with the leadership in that department at Penrose/St. Francis, improve the culture and overall functioning, and start to require some real accountability
