    Pros

    Good coworkers who care about doing a good job and help each other. Stated values are good, but in practice not so much.

    Cons

    Environment is punitive, very micromanaged. Treat employees like cogs in a machine, always looking for mistakes to write up. Depersonalizing atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as the valuable resource they are, like you say you do. Get input from the people on the front lines about how abusive middle management is.

    I worked at Penrose St. Francis Hospital part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    WONDERFUL team (on the floor I worked on)

    Cons

    Behavior of management when the chips were down (blowing 5 of their 7 "corporate values". Had surgery in my employers' facility, which was botched. Almost died (I mean REALLY almost dying!). After two months in hospital, I was sent home to recover. Was given notice of TERMINATION, one day prior to checking out. ( Because I "could no longer do the work"!) Lost family's health coverage one month later! Pen/St F - Centura is an evil corporation....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reflect more on those values, with EVERY decision that is made.

    Pros

    Centura overall is a great company and has great benefits.

    Cons

    Several of the major departments have bullies that try to run off new employees they don't like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and don't judge before you know the facts!

    I have been working at Penrose St. Francis Hospital

    Pros

    Your co-workers are professionals and have all made it through the C-Level round robin. The gym is a great perk, and the length of employment for most people is very long. Most people are great, knowlegdable, and dedicated.

    Cons

    Senior management never sticks around for too long. This has caused a sense of un-ease and somewhat directionless staff. There are those in senior management that jump to quickly into bad decisions, and then those that sit on good ideas - maybe that's everywhere, but this a top rated hospital. Funding is an issue, but that is more of an industry thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a track, stick to it and go with it.
