    I worked at Sherman Health Systems

    Pros

    I worked in 3 different positions during my time there and for each I was given ample training. Senior staff were very patient when I was first starting out. My bosses were always willing to hear ideas for process improvements and were willing to let me take on more responsibilities as I saw fit.

    Cons

    There was a lot of turnover of administrative staff which made it difficult to feel comfortable at times. Administrative turnover meant some changing policies regarding scheduling, uniforms, staff meeting frequency and timing, etc. Also, just like most other hospitals, there wasn't much consideration on the part of the administrative staff when it came to scheduling meetings and in-services for those on night shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should not only be related to time with the company, but also to efficiency, number of sick days taken, etc. Try and always consider night shift staff schedules when making attendance at meetings mandatory and when dispensing "treats" like pizza after a busy shift, etc.

    I worked at Sherman Health Systems part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are so friendly and outgoing. With such a small and intimate workplace, you truly become friends with everyone and trust each other.

    Cons

    The merger with Advocate has been difficult being the smaller company, we get the short end of the stick. Gossip can be a reoccurring issue as well, since the facilities are small, rumors get spread around like wildfire, and sometimes you don't get the chance to defend yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't let this merger affect or take away the spark of this wonderful hospital and make it the same as all the rest. Please keep employees informed about the good AND the bad, so that more negative and upsetting rumors start and/or continue on.

    I have been working at Sherman Health Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good team to work with. Always something to do or improve on.

    Cons

    Middle management and charge co-workers can be very micro managing. Poor work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little guy. Your employees can are able to do their job without always reminding them about what their supposed to be doing (micro-managing). High negative criticism with little to no positive feedback.

    Pros

    Beautiful facility with coworkers that are friendly and caring.

    Cons

    Necessary computer training seems to be a problem and causes further computer issues down the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that your middle management strongly encourages those that are not getting encouragement from patient letters when they are doing a great job. Recognition at the monthly meeting in front of the rest of the Sherman employees would be very encouraging when the business office has a good month of AR. We seem to be recognize only among ourselves.
