    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.


  2. Great company that is growing fast.

    Pros

    Very good teaching hospital. Good insurance options. Offers incentives for working extra and sharing good ideas.

    Cons

    Low income for long hours. Job duties continue to grow but not offered money for your new expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Help out those employees who ask for it. Salaries are way too low in some cases.

    Pros

    Fulltime hours and occasional overtime benefits great coworkers proper training classes

    Cons

    no good leadership short staffed unreasonable denials for requested time off no opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Sit down with your employees and try to meet their needs. We are the ones who make all the difference in how pts view the facility, take our importance into consideration. Include incentives when monthly quotas are met. Praise employees for what they do right not just reprimand them for the things they did wrong.

    Pros

    Very pretty locations at most sites. Most staff is nice and eager to help. Very nice annual Christmas parties. Very knowledge and caring doctors at Ochsner.

    Cons

    Large institution with lots of opportunities if they played fair. Too much work and not enough people to support the rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Work fairly with employees. Take time to listen and not throw ideas out before hearing what is said. They should not be bias.

    Pros

    The biggest positive is the benfits are fantastic. Ochsner is a great employer to receive for superior dental, vision and healthcare

    Cons

    The work hours are long. If your salary there's no additional compensation for the long work hours. Salary doesn't fit job description unless you or in patient care

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest frequent compensation analyses for full time employee types not just patient care. It takes all employee types to help the hospital run

    Pros

    ochsner has a very friendly working environment. That aspect makes it hard to leave. I enjoyed my experience there.

    Cons

    management is not always easy to speak to and your opinion is not a priority. Ochsner is for the pt not for the employees/nurses were are disposable

    Pros

    Fantastic crew of fine nurses!

    Cons

    Never in my life been written up for such petty things. Management promoted with minimal clinical experience due to who they know. Big boss is bestie. Upside.... Most of those have moved on. Current supervisor is pleasant understanding and a person you can communicate with. Although her hands are tied by corporate wide policies that do not pertain to the particular facility. No one has the power to override anything. Even when all parties agree it should be overridden.

    Advice to Management
