    Pros

    The employees of John Muir Health comprise an excellent community of dedicated professionals who work together to provide an excellent patient experience.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is relatively new; their decision making is questionable. The value of the individual employee is not recognized and this is true across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the value of your organization is the value of your outward facing, boots-on-the-ground FTEs that interact daily with patients and other associated organizations.

    Pros

    The units function like little families, for the most part everyone lends a helping hand. Teamwork.

    Cons

    The promotional opportunities are starting to dwindle, pay increases are decreasing in frequency, and staffing issues are almost constant.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all your staff as being important to your overall well-being because without one link the chain breaks.

    Pros

    It's a pleasure to work with some of the greatest nurses and doctors in the area. John Muir attracts some of the best of the best nurses from around the country. Nurses are generally well supported at the bedside. Our nursing leadership seems to have their hearts in the right place, although they have little control over the business decisions being made. Pay is competitive and benefits are good, but changing daily it seems.

    Cons

    Administration is currently rolling out a "revised compensation" program. Wages will be allowed to stagnate until we reach our stated goal of being in the 50th percentile of local pay. (currently above 70th percentile) Our exceptional child care facility offered to employees at a low cost is closing equating to a large pay cut for working parents. I fear these cuts will make it more difficult to attract top talent going forward.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your most precious resource, your exceptional employees. There has been a big talent drain already, it will continue if people continue to feel like they are not valued. If we are left with a small hospital group with mediocre (50th percentile) staff we won't be able to compete with the big mediocre providers. I think all administrators should come from a medical background, so that they can better understand the "business" decisions they are making. Its difficult to accept decreased benefits while we see aggressive television and radio advertising campaigns.

    Pros

    The teamwork with the bedside staff is excellent.

    Cons

    The new CEO has cut deeply into bedside practitioners and it is ruining our patient's care experience.

    Advice to Management

    Cut at the top before laying off RN's, RT’s CNA's etc...

    Pros

    Lots of education available. Nice facility.

    Cons

    Unrealistic demands pull you from bedside care.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the floor for an entire 12 hour shift each quarter. This will provide you the valuable information on the challenges facing your nurses.
