    I have been working at Dignity Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The ER I work in is very flexible with everyones schedule. The nursing staff is the reason nurses stay in this department.

    Cons

    I try to stick to the positives. Everyone will have a different opinion on what to expect from and employer. Leadership is the area in which improvement is most needed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need help to become a cohesive leadership team. The department and organization seem very reactionary as opposed to forward planning and implementation.

    I worked at Dignity Health part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Seriously strive to live up to their mission statement of quality patient care.

    Cons

    They sold HCCL, the division I worked for without giving a contractually obligated 90 notice. Even with that, I would work there again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It might be helpful for corporate to leave the rarified air now and again and see how things their policies actually play out in the trenches.

    Pros

    Flexible about work at home for some positions. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Most Managers follow personal agendas instead of focusing on quality of care and patient satisfaction. Generally, be a "Yes Mam", or be shown the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind the mission of Dignity Health, not your personal agenda.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, Honorable mission and values

    Cons

    Significant double speak. Expectations are not consistent with financial or human recourse allocation.
    High expectations without the infrastructure or human resource support to be market competitive.
    Work load are extremely high!
    Low performers do not get performance managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold bad performers accountable! Develop, or hire and sustain leadership with in in-depth understanding of healthcare quality and evidence-based practice necessary for excellence. Your patients deserve it !
    Being 'kind' is not enough!

    Pros

    Health, dental and vision benefits very good.

    Cons

    Paid time off is 20 days a year or so including official holidays. Management spends money on "marketing" the President while laying off people in the facilities and corporate offices. DH promtes hello humankindness aa if they invented the concept of kindness. Kindness starts at home not in advertising spots in newspapers and tv. Management treatment of people very, very poor. Managers in my department treat staff with disrespect. People are starting to leave now that more jobs are available rlsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate leadership should Reduce your salaries and bonuses and use the money to improve services. Stop the junket tours to Italy, London and elsewhere and use company's money for patient care.

    Pros

    The hospitalists and nursing care, in general, are exceptional. Highly impressive inpatient orthopedic joint program and inpatient cardia surgery program.

    Cons

    Middle management, as with many companies, could make it happen to turn around departmental employee satisfaction, if it were a high enough priority.
    CNA's are overworked. DH is listening and addressing EVS issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions for all departments, not just nursing.
