    I worked at Holy Cross Hospital (NM) full-time

    Pros

    The town of Taos offers a unique experience for the right person. Beautiful Scenery, accessible outdoors, small town feel.

    Cons

    This hospital has gone through many drastic change over the last 3-4 years. The new CEO arrived. about that time.

    Holy Cross Hospital is now a business that is run by the HR department and a CEO that leads the hospital by intimidation and fear.

    Little chances for advancement based on merit. very political

    Huge Manager / Director turnover - Layoffs, firings, demotions at the manager / director level.

    Finical problem caused by out of touch management has caused downsizing from 47 bed to 29 bed Hospital.

    If you aren't from here, or have not been here 25+ years, you may place or advance, but will not succeed...

    Pros

    small community,somewhat easy to assimilate into (community, not the hospital!)

    Cons

    community is VERY parochcial, old world, "not from around here, are you?:"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop granting positions of improvement to those locals, regardless of acheivement, (everyone knows who is related to who) and not recognizing and rewarding the achievevemnents of those who migrated into the comunity with full intention to stay and to contribute

    Pros

    The benefits are very good compared to other employers and they are a Catholic organization, which fosters an environment of caring

    Cons

    Very limited ability to move up within the organization. They seek external candidates commonly verses internal candidates, which leaves employees feeling frustrated.

    I worked at Holy Cross Hospital (NM)

    Pros

    Coworkers are pretty great for the most part. Facility is perhaps too small, which gives team members too much to nit-pick on. Great healthcare benefit packages.

    Cons

    The 401k package is poor, they match $500/year no matter what employee percentage. Management does not necessarily have experience in units they manage. Makes for difficultly in supporting the best processes and prohibits this to be the greatest place to work. Definitely has the potential to be the best, but falls way short. Management support to make changes for improvement are absent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be time to implement ways to weed out the bad apples. It's probably the only thing holding Holy Cross back from being the "Best Workplace Ever"
