    I worked at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers and doctors for the short time they worked there. New building, unfortunately whoever designed it was not in the medical field.

    Cons

    Incompetence is rewarded...the dumbest, laziest, rudest, most ethically challenged people are promoted to management (one manager was even fired as a supervisor and rehired as a manager). Management likes to threaten and yell at employees. One manager liked to tell the nurses that if they didn't like it there, they were replaceable with new graduates (funny, all the new grads go to LGMC and OLOL is now resorting to hiring travel nurses whose families moved from ebola hot zones). Wages are some of the lowest unless you come in on a travel contract. If you are hoping for a raise, you will be told straight out on hire not to expect more than 1% . There is no sign on bonus...another hospital in the area offers a $4,000 sign on bonus. Don't expect specialty pay if you already work there and transfer to a specialty area. You will not be treated like a person. You will work short handed and told to "roll with it." You will constantly be told by management to be grateful you even have a job and that you are replaceable. When something happens, management will attempt to lie to save their own butts, even when it doesn't make sense and they are obviously lying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like humans. Value your employees, give decent raises, sign on bonuses and stop telling them they could easily be replaced....evidently they aren't since you are having job fairs and management meetings on why everyone is leaving and why you can't get anyone to even apply there.

    I enjoyed my work for the experience and the ability to make a difference in a patients day, daily.

    Start new, bring in fresh people with a desire to make a change.

    Pros

    Most of our co-workers were awesome, and very united. We made each other laugh, and it helped get through the day. Management didn't like laughing.

    Cons

    Shady management, constant changes in job duties, no raises, micro-managed, favoritism, nepotism, upper level management is totally disconnected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees, not managers. Listen to them, really listen.

    Pros

    As they like to remind us: I have a job

    Cons

    Forced flu inmunization for LL associates, even clreical, who don't work at the hospital or any doctor's office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what your employees do. You demand unreasonably and don't have any idea what it takes to do our job, but you need us none the less

    I have been working at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center

    Pros

    Depending on the area you work long-term relationships can be established and a sense of family is felt between colleagues.

    Cons

    No succession plan. Promotions based on who you know. Professional growth can be easily stiffled. Obvious unequal treatment of employees by senior leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human Resources and management should focus on candidates for job selection be based on education and ability to do the job instead of friends promoting friends. The support for a learning curve for new positions should be open to all instead of just friends of friends. The culture of the facility would improve if staff believed that all are treated fairly instead of a select few. Very negative impact on organizational culture.
