    Pros

    CEO, Mission, Affiliation with large healthcare organization

    Cons

    middle management, traditional work methodologies, very little support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt more modern management philosophies and methodologies for work. Almost all of the employees want to achieve success - empower, support, and celebrate success with your team.

    Pros

    Benefits and knowing you are trying to help people get better.

    Cons

    Arrogant physicians who treat others in a condescending manner, belittle them and then wonder why people don't comply. Ignorant and out of touch management who preach one thing and do another. This is not a healthy or supportive environment for anyone. Work anywhere else but here. They lie and hide behind their care for people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to start with a clean slate and get some good managers, physicians and workers who truly care to start rebuilding the negativity that exists here.

    I worked at Sisters of Providence Health part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training on the technical aspects of the job; great instructors.
    One quickly learns how to work in the trenches.
    One learns how to conduct informational classes for clients.
    Many of the nurses and mental health workers care deeply about the work they do with patients on the behavioral health wards.
    Great employee cafeteria and service staff

    Cons

    Inadequate, understaffed, and poorly trained security personnel
    Ineffective employee union
    Learning the application of the techniques taught during training is done alone and under fire
    Overloaded, overworked, and unappreciated nursing staff
    Some of the docs are arrogant, dismissive, and condescending to nurses, staff, and patients
    Compliments and rewards are withheld from staff despite often amazing work; fear of the owner's wrath is fomented
    Lazy old-timers tolerated
    Resistant to change
    Glaring, dangerous errors are covered up rather than used as teachable moments, and infighting, bullying, finger-pointing and backstabbing amongst the nursing and mental health staff is de rigeur. A culture of disrespect between the nurses and the MHCs is growing. Cooperation is not likely to happen in an environment where people, rather than problems, are attacked by an upper management team concerned more with the illusion of amity and effectiveness than making it a reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a hard place to work with a very challenging population. Be supportive, update systems, discourage infighting instead of encouraging it. Be the change you want to see.

    Pros

    Physicians are great. Some co-workers actually care about their patients. Good place for new nurses to start..you'll learn a lot.

    Cons

    I have been nursing for twenty five years and have never witnessed the amount of backstabbing and bullying as I did while working here. They have a union, but it's useless. There is no self scheduling, and schedules are very rigid. Management invisible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management very draconian

    Pros

    Learn how to work in the trenches. Residents very challenging, management even more so. Some good people work there. Residents can be enjoyable.

    Cons

    Poor benefit package, unsafe workload, management always looking for ways to write employees up and give them bad reviews so don't have to give them their tiny pay increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a hard place to work with a very challenging population. Be supportive, update systems, discourage infighting instead of encouraging it, get a union.
