    Pros

    Christian atmosphere with lots of encouragement to get healthy physically and spiritually. Diverse culture with other religions welcome also. Most areas are not interested in political games, but rather good character and integrity. Lots of room to grow your career in just about any professional field.

    Cons

    They do not pay the best for their positions and sometimes that impacts quality of new employees coming on board. They do not currently seem to train leadership roles with servant-based leadership ideals and tend to put "managers" or "supervisors" in place instead. Not sure about other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time training your leaders to be leaders and not managers or supervisors. Servant-based leadership is Biblical and truely the earmark of a successful business. Also, paying a healthier rate for employees and finding more experienced people would allow you to have fewer headcount at the same cost, fewer mistakes due to inexperience, and more long-term employees who are proud to carry the company torch.

    Pros

    Benefits are great!. Annual pay increase and bonuses. Room to grow IF you have a friend in management or a family member.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking skills to manage. HR will not tell you why all applications gets denied/no rehire, even with experience and years with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the high turnover rate in certain departments. Make sure all in leaders are qualified and not just a friend/family or a friends of a friend/family. Just because you are experienced at the job does not mean you are qualified to lead and manage others.

    Pros

    Christian based Hospital, but great diversity in workers. People care about each other and their families. PDO days instead of vacation/holiday days off.

    Cons

    Hard to move ahead. Can't tell if a position is a promotion, unilateral, or demotion. Plus it''s very hard to get an interview when applying for an internal positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review you HR software. You can have all posted requirements, years of experience, and never even get an interview for a position.
