    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.

    I worked at SSM Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to begin your nursing career. There are many nurses who have a long history of working in this company.

    Cons

    Management turnover is high. No consistencies in expectations. Pay increases not given this year, yet the company continues to spend money on rebranding their corporate logo and purchasing other hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show employees that you value their contribution.
