    Ochsner has several opportunites if you are willing to train for them.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New Orleans, LA

    ProsOchsner offers the opportunities to grow with education reimbursement policy. In some departments as you take on new tasks it helps to move you up to the next level when raise time comes around.

    ConsSome deparatments dont have offices you have to work in tight quarters and that is real hard at times. If you are a smoker you can not smoke on site.

    Not a company I want to work for again

    Ancillary (Former Employee) Baton Rouge, LA

    ProsSalary here is just as comparable as anywhere.

    ConsHow they pick manager is a joke. HR only sticks up for the managers no matter what. It's who you know and not what you know that gets you the promotions. Senior level care very little of their employees. Any mangers that have the balls to speak up are dismissed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop kissing butts period! Happy employees equal happy workplace.

    Leadership lacks consistent vision

    Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) New Orleans, LA

    ProsLocal company, good health insurance, fair starting wage and benefits packae

    ConsSenior leadership tends to treat non-physician employees as a drawback rather than benefit. Beginning with orientation, employees are warned about the damage they can do, including the ways that they cost the hospital money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate management attitudes to recognize that non-MD employees provide all of the ability for physicians to generate the revenue that they do.

    It was a wonderful experience to work with the doctor and patients

    Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) Baton Rouge, LA

    ProsIt was a busy clinic with never a dull moment. The provider was great and sincere about what he done. It was a steady workflow. The patients were great.

    ConsThe manager showed favoritism between employees. The pay was horrible. I started at 13.00 per hr and when I did receive a raise it was .04 therefore I begin making 13.04. I found a different job to better my household.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is the place to work but the amount of pay for the work you do is not reasonable,

    Ochsner offers a great learning experience but with little understanding of the "little people" from senior leadership.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOpportunities to focus on skill development, lateral mobility, worldclass healthcare, many locations from which to work are all great benefits of working at OHS.

    ConsLeadership seems to be involved with daily life, but their efforts to connect seem to come out of theory books, rather than the real world. Benefits packages leave a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConnect with administrative/analytic employees in a way that will allow you to address their needs appropriately. Realize that not everyone is a doctor or nurse, yet all employees should be valued as such.

    Too many leaders, too few followers

    Network Administrator II (Former Employee) Jefferson, LA
