    Generally good place to work. Fast-paced, stressful, organizational changes, not unlike most jobs in hospital nursing

    I have been working at SSM Health Care part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Patient centered, caring, striving for excellence, expanding/renovating/newer, lots of long term devoted staff. Magnet hospital. Flat organizational structure using shared leadership model. When I started, this organization's CEO was a nun who kept the healing mission and historic roots of community service more in the forefront of our practice.

    Cons

    More centralized, corporatized with headquarters in St Louis -- for business efficiencies. Lost some uniqueness and community feel. Financial stresses of health care environment reflected in employee benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to keep Shared Leadership alive.

    I have been working at SSM Health Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Faith-based, Mission driven organization. Most coworkers are genuinely good to work with and support a positive environment. There are many opportunities to learn and opportunities for advancement and/or lateral moves to further your career development

    Cons

    Like any organization, there are some negative employees who try to bring the whole group down. Communication is not always the best from top to bottom to give a consistent message. We talk about innovation, but some of our culture is so traditional it doesn't seem that innovation could come from it in the current state.
