    Why I would like to work at St. Anthony's.

    OB Surgical Technologist (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsGood training hard workers. Nice compensation for staying past your shift to help out. Good quality surgeons in the operating room. The operating room staff really works as a team for the benefit of the patient.

    ConsIt is a busy hospital just like anywhere else. No other issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe as visible as possible to the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The most disappointing example of uninformed leadership decision making ever experienced.

    Management (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsOrganization is filled with hardworking and caring frontline and middle management staff. Benefits comparable to other healthcare organizations. HR has established a smooth process for termination.

    ConsLeadership and management has a high rate of turn over; the focus and priorities are volatile and subject to change depending who is "running" the hospital. Unstable work environment and there is an overall lack of stability professionally. Anticipate Information Systems to build convoluted processes without frontline input and a complete lack of accountability for requests or assistance. Expect demands by leadership with out any support or resources. Lack of opportunity for personal growth; overachievers quickly reach threshold of maturity within organization and/or leaders make uniformed decisions and offer termination instead of mentoring.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAddress concerns immediately and transparently, by unbiased staff. Engage staff by asking questions and allow for input by those directly affected. Examine the cost of nursing staff and management turnover. Provide feedback real time. Lead by example; expectations should apply to leadership as well as employees. Consider hiring a CEO with a track record of success in the healthcare industry and one without history of leading an initiative that resulted in termination of 150+ employees at St. Anthony's. Propose hiring proven leaders instead of physicians; license to practice medicine does not ensure leadership skills. Recruit leaders who would utilize St. Anthony's for their family's health care needs as both the leader and their families permanent residence is in South County.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not recommended

    Non Clinical Nursing Role (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits, wonderful co-workers, due to amount of turnover you have the opportunity to meet many new people.

    ConsAdministration has taken on a set of values that everyone who works there should possess. I agree that these are values that individuals who work in healthcare should toward patient's and families however the administration does NOT project these same set of values toward the employee. You are not valued, you are not accommodated, you are not treated "nice", and they could care less about your safety. Each day here could potentially be your last............you just never know who you won't see at work tomorrow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach where your employees are concerned.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Physicians are wonderful, Hospital Executive changeover is difficult

    Director (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsNurses are great, quality of care is at or above standards.

    ConsPhysician organization and how providers are handled by Hospital Executives leaves something to be desired. Makes a practice manager question what their priorities are and with whom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage front line managers by keeping them posted on strategic planning. Budgets need to allow for seminars, webinars and the time to attend. Support staff membership in local and State agency's to maintain or obtain certification.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Revolving door of leadership provides no real changes to the environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe employees generally want to make a difference and the location is convenient. If you fight enough, pay can be comparable.

    ConsThere's an endless parade of leadership which makes it impossible for the organization to settle on a direction. One CEO will come in and lay off a bunch of people, then another CEO will come in and hire them all back and then some. There's no real accountability for performance, so most things tend towards the mediocre. Morale is low because of the constant turmoil

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing

    RN, Bsn (Former Employee)

    ProsThe staff that does work here try very hard

    ConsOverworked (8 pts/nurse on a night shift 15/tech), majority of nurses are new nurses (fine with new nurses, but not when an entire shift has a total combined experience level of 1 year), no raises and lowest pay rate in the area

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease realize that patient safety is related to staffing ratios and address appropriately

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    RN at St. Anthonys

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Consthey were understaffed at times leading to having too many patients and causing lots of stress with all the nurses

    Former RN

    RN BSN (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat co-workers. Friendly work environment.

    ConsAbsolutely no room for growth in the company. No raises. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopefully with all of the layoffs and budget cuts, you have now made your company appealing enough for BJC or SSM to come in and buy you out.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a long and great experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSt. Anthony Medical Center was a great working environment. The Center is very progressive and part of a very respected medical network. The medical staff is top notch. The hospital tries to stay very patient friendly

    ConsWork can be stressful at times. Management of the hospital at times puts additional stress on department working conditions (although I am certain this is common in most hospital settings).

    ProsGreat place to work, friendly atmosphere, caring co-workers.
