    I worked at St. Elizabeth Hospital (Louisiana) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people as a whole are absolutely amazing. I consider them my family.
    They provided me with multiple growth opportunities and my career has benefited tremendously.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but they are making some strides
    Increased accountability for team members- rid the organization of people who are underperformers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what made STE great- the culture, the passion, and the family atmosphere.
    Work to improve accountability and provide a bit more direction on strategic direction and vision to the front-line staff

    Pros

    St. Elizabeth has a family environment in which the employees value each other and they take care of one another on a variety of levels.

    Cons

    The pay is not up to standards and the benefits are limited considering the type of facility it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include your employees in the bottom line and you will begin to maintain a larger number.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. My floor is a nice floor to work on, however not so much on some of the other units.

    Cons

    The doctors are not held accountable for their behavior and attitude at times, and neither are some of the employees. Oh and the onlyy hospital the insurance covers is SEHC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better raises and insurance

    Pros

    The Employees are great caring people, Most of us are there because of the patients

    Cons

    The communications between management and staff are almost non-existent.
    Staffing is horrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of cutting staff to save money, you may want to add it. Because the reason patients do not return is due to lack of care givers.

    Former Employee - Medical Transcriptionist in Gonzales, LA

    I worked at St. Elizabeth Hospital (Louisiana)

    Pros

    The pay is good and benefits are excellent and affordable, including a 100% employer-paid retirement plan after five years of employment.

    Cons

    The usual corporate excesses, including over-indoctrination of the corporate mission, mandatory meetings and motivational seminars, inflexible management, and the most common complaint in corporate America, "too many chiefs and not enough indians". Most new employees, even department managers and other professionals, stay just long enough to screw things up for everyone else, then leave for "greener pastures". The high employee turnover negatively affects employee morale, which management then tries to correct with mandatory motivational seminars and other attempts to mold employees in the corporate image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold tyrannical managers accountable for extremely high employee turnover. Most employees do not leave St. Elizabeth because of dissatisfaction with pay or benefits, but because of an atmosphere of favoritism toward old Riverview Hospital employees who were there when Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System bought the facility in 2000.
