    Run, don't walk, away from any employment offers as long as it remains under Stevens Hospital control.

    Pros

    Swedish is taking over, maybe they can show current Stevens management how to motivate their employees to be successful.

    Cons

    Terrible leadership. People put in charge of things that they have no previous experience in managing. Very Punitive. Communication is lacking. Quick to discipline and slow to show recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to your employees, it just may make you both successful.

    A good place to work but hard for people who have been here a while to live through difficult but necessary changes

    Pros

    Variety of case mix, strong standing in the community, great reputation and strives to live up to it

    Cons

    Poor leadership in past created some challenging situations that current leadership is now trying to correct. Time will tell if they can make the needed changes without losing valuable staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees a chance to catch up with you...a little more empathy for the degree and pace of changes would ensure greater loyalty from employees. Starting to get the feeling you don't care if we stay or leave, that it may be the price for making some hard but necessary decisions. Remind me that you care about me as a person and I'll follow you to the end, Rod!
