    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center

    Pros

    Self-scheduling. Staffing. Less busy ER (so allows time for drama=Con).

    Cons

    Majority of patient clientele believes the nurse's job is to "get the doctor" and provide them a warm blanket. Raises are minimal. Disharmonious physician-nurse relationships.

    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Up to date Hospital new patient suites in heart hospital, very clean

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in nursing. Ratio of diverse nurses to population is off dramatically

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace differences you might actually learn a better way to do things and your patient demographics may benefit.

    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This hospital has a pleasant environment with friendly staff. It is well-maintained and cleanliness is a major focus.

    Cons

    My experience was one of poor assignments, based solely on patient room location without taking acuity into account. This could make for a very pleasant day, or a nightmare, depending on the particular assignment and the attitudes of those around you on any given day.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, room for overtime, flexible scheduling, very knowledgeable support staff. Free gifts yearly. Free little luncheons at least once a year. Free parking in the covered garage.

    Cons

    There was difficulty transferring to another floor. The floor I was on was very busy and often it was hard to get a break until after 8 hours of work (in a 12 hour midnight shift).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if the management focused on all the good their staff was doing instead of trying daily to audit (catch) anyone doing anything minutely wrong. Also physically helping the staff when they are overloaded instead of constantly attending meetings and being MIA in an office or off the floor.

    Current Employee - RN Staff Nurse in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Missouri Baptist Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nice facility, large corporation with ability to transfer to other department's. Part of BJC healthcare which is a large non for profit organization.

    Cons

    No leadership, I currently don't even know who the manager of my department is. People are rewarded based on who their friends are, not how good of an employee they actually are. Nurses are expected to stand there and "smile" while being yelled at by patient's, families, doctors and charge nurses. Ability to transfer but almost always considered a "lateral" move as a nurse. Very small raises, nurse there for over 5 years and base pay has only gone up less than $2 an hour. Health insurance increases mean I make less take home now then I did as a new grad. Poor HR department. I've worked many 12 hour shifts with no lunch and not even a break.

    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Very passionate people, some great executives. Very patient centric environment. The team is very driven to make the hospital a great place for care.

    Cons

    Struggle with the idea of personal time. High expectations anchored with seemingly misguided metrics. Poor conflict skills, which leads to a lot of back door conversations. Have a tough time getting past the daily issues to build something below the surface.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up. Especially with each other.

    I worked at Missouri Baptist Medical Center

    Pros

    Being able to work with a great medical team, and it was a fun atmosphere to be apart of. Great training program.

    Cons

    The cons of the job was only being limited to one part of the hospital. I worked in the operating room for my entire employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great if there were more performance reviews, because only being part time and working in the summers it was difficult to know where you stand.
