    I have been working at Saint Louis University Hospital

    Pros

    Great experience, great people, great doctors. Ability to work in high level ICU or level I trauma ER as a new grad.

    Cons

    Constant change and restructuring of middle management. Has become very schedule unfriendly.

    I worked at Saint Louis University Hospital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Many opportunities for overtime. That was really the only plus that you could work as much as you wanted and they offered retention bonuses

    Cons

    Difficult patients and family and poorly organized. Lots of travel nurses and high turnover. Very sick patients who are very demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the nurse patient ratio and increase the tech supply to the floor. That will enable you to keep staff.

    I worked at Saint Louis University Hospital

    Pros

    The only pros about this hospital were the actual patients and the cafeteria food was pretty good. Other then those two things I can't think of anything other pros.

    Cons

    The floor I was on was severely understaffed as is most of the hospital. The nurse to patient ratio was unsafe for the amount of care I was required to give. Most of the time my floor was without a health care tech; so not only did I have to fulfill my nursing duties, but I was also required to do tech work for a large amount of patients. Managers are not concerned about staff happiness nor do they are to help with staff’s concerned. I worked there for a couple months and the experience has been awful. Knowing how this hospital operates I wouldn’t recommend this hospital to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. They are the eyes and ears on the floor while you sit in your office. When they have concerns take them seriously and don't make excuses about problems. Insted, try to fix them.
