    Pros

    Working here was great! Management is very kind and always available to the employees. There is always new opportunities available and nothing is out of reach! Great people to work with and for what I have experience everyone seems to pulls their own.

    Cons

    Working here you need to remember that you will be working for a growing organization that is in the ever changing healthcare industry. This organization is one of the largest of its kind in the area and is seeing many growing pains due to all the changes we are experience in healthcare. The benefits are good but expensive and not the best I have seen!

    Advice to Management

    I know that turnover in your departments can be troublesome but try not holding someone back from their true potential and please don't hold a grudge against them for trying to better themselves. A little praise and encouragement goes a really long way.

    Pros

    Overall it is a family oriented atmosphere. Ochsner provides complete job readiness and compliance training to the staff so they may provide the best quality service to its patients. Loved my supervisors but most of all loved working with the patients.

    Cons

    No cons about the job itself. Except to stay away from the select few who are about bringing drama or negativity to work and like to talk about everybody to everybody on Ochsner time. Just focus on helping the patients and your job.

    Pros

    Ochsner has so many locations throughout Southeast Louisiana that it makes it very easy to find exactly what you are looking for. Whether it be a certain niche, or a specific shift, they can almost always make it work or transfer you to a location that can.

    Cons

    So many people trying to get into the system that it's difficult to get through to mangers when applying

    Advice to Management

    Continue to acknowledge all of the hard working employees at Ochsner

    Pros

    Ochsner has a great benefits package, lots of discounts throughout the area for employees, and (depending on the department) lots of room for career growth

    Cons

    Strange holiday system, well below average pay for many positions, Shuttle system that adds 30-40 minutes on to my day every day. "Nonprofit" system that is run exactly like a for profit.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more growth opportunities for people already working in the system. Develop the talent already present in the organization.
