    I have been working at Dignity Health full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good hours. Nice coworkers. Some of the managers and people in leadership do care about the patients and staff members and the company.

    Cons

    Too much pressure and work put on RNs. Hostile MDs catered to and tolerated by the higher ups despite numerous complaints by RNs make a borderline hostile work environment at this particular facility. At times, the workload was to heavy with insufficient staffing jeopardized patient safety and quality of care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put pressure on the upper management and decision makers to listen to staff input and to spend money to improve some of the less affluent facilities part dignity health. More staffing to improve safety and quality versus putting responsibility on RNs. Goals won't be met that way.

    I worked at Dignity Health

    Pros

    Salary, great CA location and hope instilled at interview and orientation.

    Cons

    Negativity and gossip mongers are listened to more than a new employee. If you are not part of the "family" one must overcome old beliefs/ prejudice before you can prove your worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real. Investigate the true meaning of family as this one is dysfunctional.

    I have been working at Dignity Health

    Pros

    Great facility and very clean. Co-workers are awesome and my current manager doesn't micromanage-not always the case. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    It takes far too long to get anything accomplished. It also seems there is a huge disconnect from employees and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions faster and when employees give input, listen.

    I have been working at Dignity Health

    Pros

    The health insurance is good and the facility is state-of-the-art

    Cons

    They are always cutting hours and making you take 48 hour call shifts after working a 12 hour shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees the same whether they have children or not. I was always being guilted into working holidays because I don't have kids so the ones that did have kids could spend time with their family. The manager would strongly "urge" that I take the worst shifts and all the holiday shifts just because my husband and I did not have children yet.

    I worked at Dignity Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, PTO, and Benefits are adequate and competitive for job requirements
    Office space and general work environment are cleaned regularly

    Cons

    Verbally abusive managers that receive job coaching rather than discipline
    Poor HR support that listens to managers rather than subordinates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. If subordinates are constantly leaving then there's something wrong with their department manager.
