    I worked at John C. Lincoln Health Network full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Supervisors that understand that employees have a life outside of work and are very accomodating with requested time off

    Cons

    recent merger/affiliation has created a hostile attendence policy...creating a situation where employees are forced to lie when tardy to say that they can't swipe in because they forgot their badge...or risk losing their job. So the most honest of the employees who can't lie end up getting the boot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    eyes wide open. life happens. don't force your best employees out the door with an attendence policy that's ridiculous and leaves you with the liars.

    I have been working at John C. Lincoln Health Network full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This used to be a great place to work. There was excellent potential and opportunity.

    Cons

    The merger with Scottsdale Health Care ruined a perfectly great company.. Under the SHC banner, the company hemorrhages money for out of town contractors and foolish long-distance employment strategies. There are too many chiefs and not enough indians. The strategy to have contractors complete the work and leave violates any reasonable concept of knowledge and experiential retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine your project fulfillment process and overall costs. Hire someone with IT experience rather than another hospital-centric Epic clone with grandiose plans and no practical implementation experience

    Pros

    The caliber of my coworkers on my shift is extraordinary. Department management tries to be compassionate and flexible.

    Do more with less, slim staffing, merger w/ Scottsdale health.

    Pros

    I have worked in 4 different hospitals, and this one is the best. Those who complain are upset because the industry has changed, but Lincoln still puts patients first and gives back to the community.

    Cons

    Some people have worked her a long time, and don't know anything about other practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for putting patients first.

    I worked at John C. Lincoln Health Network full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There's a lot of good people that work there. I wouldn't say there is a higher percentage of good people at JCL than other employers but that's the only pro.

    Cons

    Poor management from the CEO to charge nurses and supervisors. Management is good at blaming others for their mistakes. Pay is poor. Very short staffed. Student loan reimbursements have disappeared. Medical benifits are poor. If you ever have an issue with one of your many managers DO NOT GO TO HR! HR will quickly dispose of you and side with their management buddies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find something your actually good at.

    Pros

    Education good and excellent teamwork despite complaining by ALL staff.

    Cons

    Top heavy in managment who have no idea what is going on with RNs, PCTs ,and other staff. Unsafe patient care due to high acuities and an increase in psych patients. Always short staffed!!! Favoritism by dept. managers. Good luck getting your vacation as requested. Incivility rules!!!! If you want to be bullied work for JCL. Supposed to be Magnet but RNs constantly get 6 patients with very high acuities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes. Maybe the people coming in from Scottsdale will help.

    I worked at John C. Lincoln Health Network full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Sorry, I absolutely tried to come up with at least one.

    Cons

    Unprofessional at it's best. I seriously question the the fact that these so called medical professionals are licensed or certified. It's a very cold and evil environment. Positions are based on kinship versus merit. No room for advancement, an overall unhappy group of people that are too consumed with each other's drama to even be considered a serious hospital. This place is a like a high end nursing home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are as good as the people that works under you, start with the mirror then work your way down.
