    The most disappointing example of uninformed leadership decision making ever experienced.

    I worked at St. Anthony's Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Organization is filled with hardworking and caring frontline and middle management staff. Benefits comparable to other healthcare organizations. HR has established a smooth process for termination.

    Cons

    Leadership and management has a high rate of turn over; the focus and priorities are volatile and subject to change depending who is "running" the hospital. Unstable work environment and there is an overall lack of stability professionally. Anticipate Information Systems to build convoluted processes without frontline input and a complete lack of accountability for requests or assistance. Expect demands by leadership with out any support or resources. Lack of opportunity for personal growth; overachievers quickly reach threshold of maturity within organization and/or leaders make uniformed decisions and offer termination instead of mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address concerns immediately and transparently, by unbiased staff. Engage staff by asking questions and allow for input by those directly affected. Examine the cost of nursing staff and management turnover. Provide feedback real time. Lead by example; expectations should apply to leadership as well as employees. Consider hiring a CEO with a track record of success in the healthcare industry and one without history of leading an initiative that resulted in termination of 150+ employees at St. Anthony's. Propose hiring proven leaders instead of physicians; license to practice medicine does not ensure leadership skills. Recruit leaders who would utilize St. Anthony's for their family's health care needs as both the leader and their families permanent residence is in South County.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, wonderful co-workers, due to amount of turnover you have the opportunity to meet many new people.

    Cons

    Administration has taken on a set of values that everyone who works there should possess. I agree that these are values that individuals who work in healthcare should toward patient's and families however the administration does NOT project these same set of values toward the employee. You are not valued, you are not accommodated, you are not treated "nice", and they could care less about your safety. Each day here could potentially be your last............you just never know who you won't see at work tomorrow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach where your employees are concerned.
