Pros

Job security is good. Most of the staff is friendly and easy to get along with. Most are team players.

Cons

Ochsner practically has a monopoly on the New Orleans Metropolitan Area and therefore, controls the pay rate in this region. They tend to pay dramatically less than what they should. People pretty much go along with this pay because they own 7 of the 11 hospital. And 2 of the remaining are in negotiation to be operated possibly by Ochsner.

Advice to Management

Spend time in the department in which you are making rules in before making those rules and regulations active. it could be surprising to find that there are better practical solutions rather than what appears would work on paper.

    I worked at Ochsner Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Manageable hours, excellent benefits, great community of people who support each other, comfortable working environment, excellent communication from upper management

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility, subpar motivational tactics, can be unstimulating and lackluster in terms of encouraging critical thinking, no bonuses

    Advice to Management

    provide a greater emphasis to your employees of going above and beyond for the work that they do in order to have the greatest chance at upward mobility

    I have been working at Ochsner Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The non-management personnel are friendly and genuinely seem to care.

    Cons

    It's not uncommon to have multiple supervisors, managers, and directors attempting to dictate your work. Seldom are they ever on the same page, nor do they seem to understand the repercussions of their poorly designed plans.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting up roadblocks within workflow processes. Stop blocking employees from trying to advance. Allow the employees the freedom to do the great job they so desperately want to do. Pay your staff like you're not the only game in town.
