    I have been working at Franciscan Medical Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Competent staff, good people to work with. Frequent raises, most of the physicians are very nice to work with. The pay is higher at FMG than many of the surrounding fascilities.

    Cons

    Scheduling has been a challenge that does not seem to be getting rectified any time soon.
    Change is a very slow process as with any large organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice would be to curtail the gossip, as with any clinic there is a lot of he said/she said, and a minority employees have fueled the fire.

    Pros

    Passionate committment from staffy who are rallied to support the mission of providing healthcare to anyone, regardless of ability to pay

    Limited growth opportunities in non-clinical roles; overall slow to adapt to changes as an organization

  3.  

    A company more concerned about finances than patients and employees

    I have been working at Franciscan Medical Group

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, room to grow by moving into new positions

    Cons

    Lots of outsourcing, unfriendly departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the patient experience and put more faith in your employees. Outsourcing is not always the best things for patients OR employees.

    I have been working at Franciscan Medical Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunity to learn new things. Many staff and providers really care and show the core values of the organization.

    Cons

    Decisions are now made at CHI, the parent company, which is out of state and out of touch with local needs. This is no longer a local company with decisions being made with the local community in mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in touch with staff that actually do the work. Inform staff of expectations and then hold them accountable, this is not consistent.

    I have been working at Franciscan Medical Group

    Pros

    Many locations and the ability to transfer to different offices/hospitals, faith based

    Cons

    Facilities are ran down and some offices are not physically conducive to patient privacy, staff is often denied the basic tools needed to be successful at their jobs. Thankfully, the job market is improving and opportunities are arising which means great employees are able to find employment elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about your staff and what their positions entails

    It was a great place to work until our department manager resigned and a new shift lead came on board.

    Pros

    It's a great team to work with. The nurses are professional and kind and most will go out of their way to help in any way possible.

    Cons

    The clinic is open on Saturdays, which puts a strain on any social life you may have. Personalities tend to clash, cliques form and high school attitudes create some serious conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reassess who you have in lead positions, interview employees who are working with those people and terminate those who are incompetent and/or impossible to work with.
