    Good staff in most all disciplines. Top notch teaching facility

    Cons

    I have been working at Saint Luke's Health System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance
    Descent PTO accrual

    Cons

    Asking for more out of their employees, but raises over the last three years have been minimal, if anything and benefits have started to become a lot more expensive resulting in a negative result.
    Leadership has gotten more money and do not have to accrue PTO for time off. They can take it when they want.
    Lack of a career ladder in my department.
    Leadership wants more work out of employees, but can't or won't do anything to motivate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of great people have left over the last year and a half due to lack of compensation or acknowledgment. The last two years have been the hardest on our department and everyone was rewarded with a crystal paper weight and either a 0%, 1%, or 2% raise.

    I have been working at Saint Luke's Health System part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was interviewed and hired as a Pharmacy Technician at the Saint Luke's South Hospital in Overland Park. I transitioned from a retail pharmacy position.

    From interview to training completion I feel the staff members I have come in contact with and trained with are top notch. Each staff member has demonstrated competencey in their profession and clarity in their communication. The pharmacy department feels like a supportive family.

    Cons

    Have not encountered any yet. Still very new.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Saint Luke's Health System

    Pros

    Fantastic health benefits, basically anything done in the health system is free or close to it. They match 2% of your 403(b). This is a large health system, but departments feel like working with a smaller company.

    Cons

    They don't offer the most competitive pay in the area for allied health jobs like phlebotomy, they also tend to hire on as PRN and not offer you benefits until you stick around a while. But they're so short staffed right now its not hard to get as many hours as you want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was very pleased with management, I have no advice for them.

    Pros

    After 10 years, vacation policy is pretty good.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you received a raise and bonus, what makes you think your staff doesn't deserve a raise as well? Do you think you did all the work?
