Pros

People work at this county facility because they like caring for the indigent and low income patients, additionally, covering all the trauma services. It takes really special people to do this work, so coworkers are awesome special!, they work hard and show great pride in their work I respect my coworkers as well as like them as people.

Cons

ADMINSTRATION! From the top down! Middle management is the worst. Managers are promoted thru the "perter principal" meaning having "manager" in your title does not mean you do it well. Those in higher positions could really use some training in leadership, management, and communication skills. Additionally there exists huge inequity of treatment. Managers favor whomever they please, bullying in common, and tolerated, it's become the common culture, the saying was never more true, "Nurses eat their young"
Also, get used to learning by fire. Work performance expectations, regardless of the training you receive, are high from the get-go. Learn office politics early on in order to succeed and survive. Get used to doing a lot of work and not getting credit for it. Friendly and helpful people should look elsewhere for a career; everyone is out for themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency, not just lip service. Proficiency levels, we need to trust, we need to know we can depend on those above us to "have our backs". Equal treatment for all, regardless of position. Let associates contribute to decision making, again not just lip service thru committees, really listen. Don't ask a question you don't want to hear the truthful answer to, then not listen and ask it again, were on to that bait and switch tactic.

    Christus does not live its mission statement. Organizational politics allow senior managers to avoid accountability.

    Pros

    Faith activities encouraged and supported

    Cons

    Efficiency, productivity, and team work poor. Mentoring not present to grow employees. Managers always in meetings and not present to "get the job done" with the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the job to be done, help employees by sharing senior knowledge and skills, provide tools and equipment needed to do it right the first time. Stop duplication of efforts among sister facilities by dividing a single project between them and then share the successful outcome with all facilities. The organization is penny wise and pound foolish. Organizational politics are strong and detrimental to the morale of the employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits in particular vision coverage. Frames are covered up to one hundred fifty dollars in network. This is a great plan because other vision plans cover less or they only give a small discount such as ten percent. They have flexible schedules in that they are willing to work with students around school schedules and they have a program called Grow Your Own in which full time associates can go to school full time and work part time and yet get compensated for full time hours. Overall the Christus Spohn Hospital is a great place to work and people are great.

    Cons

    too much "nit picking" and peer animosity. This leads to lower employee morale and pay is not up to par with the level of work is required and does not match associate experience. Too much work load for the amount of staff on hand. In addition, new rules and regulations in pharmacy operations have made stress levels and employee morale decrease exponentially. This is due to management who believes that things can be one hundred percent correct, when in fact there will always be some errors. This is due to human nature and there is no way to be completely one hundred percent correct all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect associates and don't put them down
