    Pros

    Great frontline caregivers. The most caring people you will meet. The nursing staff are great.

    Poor communication from administration down. It is difficult to make the jump from staff to leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Step outside your office.

    Pros

    Great benefits and work-life balance. People are at least nice to your face.

    Cons

    Pay below Kansas City. Management will throw you under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Be mentors perhaps and help the employees grow?

    Pros

    Free holiday dinners, nice gift shop run by volunteers. Decorations are nice throughout the hospital. Massage chairs( but floor/surgery nurses, ha never have free moments)

    Cons

    Team Leaders have their favorites and they do no wrong. Tasks are handed off to other nurses. False charting about being in pt room for rounds

    Advice to Management

    Don't continue to think nurses are a dime a dozen, show and respect the ones there. Also, don't push "the older ones" out the door or fine itty bitty mistakes to fire them. Team leaders and upper management are disgusting and poisonous!

    Pros

    Heartland has been a very good place to work for most of my years here. The benefits are great with a top-notch wellness program that provides 2 fitness centers, personal training, access to dietitians, health screenings, and educational classes all for FREE! There is also the potential to earn bonuses each quarter. Many of the people are very friendly, and up until recently, I have felt like those in management cared about me and my well-being.

    Cons

    Things have definitely been changing around here over the past year or two. A ton of work and money have been spent in areas that are not necessarily working out, and the rest of us are pinching pennies. We have even been told to watch how many post-it notes we are using! People who leave are not being replaced, so it is creating a high level of stress for many departments. Micromanaging is out of control. People are being told at a very detailed level how to look, how to speak, how to create materials, and even how to think. Those who do not fit into their mold are reprimanded and/or fired. You certainly aren't allowed to have a bad day here, or if you are, you had better put a plastic smile on your face and fake it!

    Advice to Management

    I understand the changes that have been happening in health care and that money is getting tighter, but there is no reason to take away the autonomy of your employees.

    Pros

    It is a better than minimum wage job. Those are few and far between in Saint Joseph, MO and offers tuition assistance if you are lucky.

    Cons

    Inadequate staffing-always understaffed, management never available. Dept head more interested in playing with the boss than running the department. Rules interpreted to fit the situation or employees. One you fire someone for becoming dangerously ill at work you have a real problem. When you don't discipline other employees for not getting this person the help needed you have an even bigger problem. Aren't hospitals supposed to be kind, caring and compassionate? This is a hospital trying desperately to be one of the big boys and failing badly.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Learn your department, learn what happens in each area. Work in the different areas, don't just walk through and say "Hi, how is it going."

    Pros

    Good team work, understanding team leader, excellent place for career development, lot of opportunities to excel in your career, very good benefits, motivational to do your best.

    Cons

    Too much focus on competition. You are either in or out. No place for complainers. You are always on your toes to do your best. At times it is stressful as you have to hold on to your job unless you are ready to drive or relocate to somewhere else out of Saint Joseph.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay. Heartland is leading the way in care management and community outreach. They are well prepared for the changes in healthcare laws. Heartland does well with community partnerships.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Expectations are set beyond what is possible with the tools provided to staff; this leads to low moral.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workforce.

    Pros

    Great care- care givers are determined on best possible outcomes. The pay is good for Saint Joseph standards but well below Kansas City wages. The hospital and most of the clinics are top notch facilities.

    Cons

    Low pay for the hardest working employees. Middle management and nurses runs business aspects of the organization that they are not trained to handle. Too much group think mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce middle management - clinic managers, team leaders etc... Clinics should ultimately be ran by providers.

    Pros

    Fellow employees were knowledgeable willing to work together for the better good of the Medical Center

    Cons

    Required many long hours of work >8 hours /day to complete the work load.

    Advice to Management

    Always listen to the employees, both pro and con, and be willing to change the method of accomplishing the various tasks and work loads.
