    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

    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

    It is a financially stable hospital system. They promote education and betterment of the staff.

    Cons

    Extremely top heavy with leaders. Lot's of kiss butt favoritism- "do as I say, not as I do". Communication disconnect from top management to worker bees. Way to large and they keep expanding which make compliance difficult. Not proactive and thought out when they implement projects- not enough planning involved so you end up doing the same project 2 or 3 times- very inefficient. Poor onboarding of new staff leads to high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Stop growing, acquiring and partnering with every hospital and clean house, get your stuff straight, COMMUNICATE. Stop relying on outside consultants to advise you. Create your own team of consultants and rely on their expertise. Hold management and leaders accountable when things are not done appropriately. Implement a better and more thorough onboarding of new staff that is consistent. New staff are left to sink or swim and when they sink they get discouraged and leave. Very sad.
