    Pros

    LOTS of down time. There is not a lot of work to keep people busy. You can actually go home on time.

    Cons

    Too many women. People can't mind their own business. You can get in trouble for something really stupid and petty because there is so much time on management's hands. (other companies wouldn't have time for that nonsense)
    Pay is 'ok'. They prefer to hire from the outside instead of within.

  2. Great work environment!

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers
    Fantastic and professional atmosphere
    Knowledgeable employees

    Cons

    Near-sighted direction for accomplishing goals. Projects tend to overlap without full closure.

    Advice to Management

    Engaging employees over the course of a long project would allow for freshness and inspire creativity for those involved.

    Pros

    I like the people I work with.

    Cons

    I don't really ever get to take a lunch, some days and I do mean this literally I have to swallow my food almost whole just to get something and then back out on the floor. Bathroom breaks are almost non existing (12hr shifts). The workload that we are expected to do is just crazy. We are expected to hold everyone on our unit because there is no where for patients to go, then when we are busting at the seams, guest what we have to hold even more. It's unsafe and the higher up people could care less, because they can sit on their rear ends all day and hum hall ideas that have no true impact.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding laziness! Because yes your good employees notice. All have a hidden agenda as long as they get what they want they think everything is great. To the higher ups if you will stop being so greedy and compensate the staff for all there hard work.

    Pros

    They invest in technology and provide adequate staffing.

    Cons

    They do not respect the physicians opinion. They do not like anyone who disagrees with there decisions or policies. They frequently will treat anyone who disagrees with them as if that personhas a flawed personality instead of listening and evaluating there statements objectively. They underpay physicians and persecute those who leave.There have been 8 primary care physician who had large practices and were dedicated to St.James who were forced out and in some cases treated like common criminals.They continue to lose physicians in all specialties. At the last medical staff meeting the room was only about a third full.it used to be standing room only. They have inconsistent management. They have made it harder for physicians to make a fair salary. The financial support and billing personnel are not helpful. They only contact you when they think that you made a mistake. The upper management is completely out of touch. They are like an aristocracy that rules by decree! Things are not going well but they refuse to implement changes to retain key personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your physicians and pay them fairly

    Pros

    I have some great co-workers who are great to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Many people seem very unhappy about the transition once Franciscan took over and the changes haven't been taken well here. Lots of cuts and some very unhappy employees. I wish the employees were valued more and were able to stretch their creative wings so to speak.

    Advice to Management

    Use your employees talents and let them stretch the limits more, you'd be amazed at what they can do.

    Pros

    The people are really nice and help each other. I have a good manager and supervisor, but I do not think that they understand how important it is to help their employees be successful on the job and have careers instead of part-time jobs with no benefits.

    Cons

    I feel like employees have given up on the company and continue to quit because of being overworked, underpaid, and not respected as part of the organization. Management is out of touch and think that their employees are just workers that need to obey them or else.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees and help them to grow and want to do the best job possible for the company. Give them the benefits, wages, training, and respect that they deserve. This will benefit the company and also create an atmosphere that I believe the Sisters and our Heavenly Father will approve of in this world. Practice what you preach!!!
