    I worked at Exempla Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    New building in 12/2014, lots of community feel, generally good teamwork with fair staffing. Upper management communicates well and are visible and accessable.

    Cons

    Currently in the process of merging all facilities from Exempla into Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Hospital System. Lots of changes. St. Joseph's will be moving into a new (nice) building and it will be exciting but as always stressfull. Middle management appears stressed to keep up with the changes. Managers are not keeping staff informed causing a loss of commitment and a rise of poor morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better efforts to have managers treat staff like humans and not numbers. Acknowledge staff that are weathering the changes and giving their commitment to make things better.

    Pros

    Nice environment and the majority of people working there are pleasant to work with and professional. Emphasis on doing what is right for the patient and their families.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement opportunities. An attitude of if you are not an "RN" then you must not have much to bring to the table.

    Pros

    Improving the quality of patient lives. Educated work associates, high, but sometimes unclear expectations, manage under a myriad of tiered responsibilities, otherwise, a pleasurable and productive environment.

    Cons

    Overwhelming workloads, Long hours, low tolerance when asking for additional resources, little understanding when unclear expectations are not being met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear about expectations, Be understanding about volume of workloads

    I worked at Exempla Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice building. Good insurance coverage for family. Casual dress code. Oracle cafe fantastic. Farm to fork and affordable. Very cool. Will miss the food.

    Cons

    Quick to terminate anyone not making quota without providing simple needs. No exceptions for absence even with a doctor note. Verging on labor law violations. Emerging big business finding loopholes to deny raises and bonuses. Stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value money intake and people. Remember who you are, Sisters of charity. .....

    I worked at Exempla Healthcare part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the challenging atmosphere and it was never boring. The shift went by quickly and I loved the 12 to 8:30 shift.

    Cons

    As I said my co workers. I also felt the pharmacists took us for granted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive in dealing with bullying

    Pros

    The benefits, compensation and leadership of the organization was great.

    Cons

    Getting people who had been there for some time to accept and embrace changes that occurred with the new owners and changes in the healthcare industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out even more - connect even more with your employees.

    Pros

    It seemed ok at first, but this didn't last long.

    Cons

    Unskilled management. It is clear that the staff means little to the management. Intimidation and bullying rampant. Non medical managers trying to run medical staff. Do not back their staff. Allow toxic environment/behavior. Employees are NOT valued here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worst management i have ever seen. They don't even try to pretend to respect those that work on their teams. Instead of looking at what they can do to promote teamwork, they lead through putting the responsibility of The Survey's onto their workers, who are stretched to the max already. Will scapegoat their staff and will lie to cover their mistakes.

    Pros

    Amazing on floor staff makes you feel right at home.

    Cons

    Management! Its a good old' boys / girls club. Managers and supervisors should learn to lead, and they should lead by example.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your good employees. Help the bad ones become better, or let them go. Bad employees don't help when short staffed.
