    I worked at St. John Health System

    Pros

    Good opportunities. Good leadership. A lot of room for educational and learning opportunities. Great company to work for overall.

    Cons

    Long hours. Stressful environment. Difficultty culturally. Some people who are poor performers are not disciplined or monitored. Across the board raises instead of merit raises.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the slackers. It makes good people want to leave when you offer across the board raises instead of merit raises. Offer employees discounts to SJHS sponsored events.

  5. They lie to, threaten and bully nurses to get what they want.

    Pros

    Good midtown location. Small enough that it's easy to find your way around.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than neighboring hospitals. They will promise conditions of employment to get you to accept the job then not uphold the agreement.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect to nurses and doctors. They are professionals not servants. Do what you say, keep your word.


  6. Very nice people, good job security because it's a non-profit, but not an efficient organization

    Pros

    The people there are some of the nicest most caring people you can find in any workplace. Leadership was always flexible when needing to take unexpected time off. The company really has strong core values that yield respect for each other. Great job security to the point it poor performance is almost never a reason to get fired.

    Cons

    Most leadership has been there for several decades, so the ideas are old and leadership can be short on good ideas to the point where SJHS got bought out for driving its finances into the ground. Thus, compensation is very low, and promotions are very rare.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new blood. Poor performers are dragging down your company.

    Pros

    Family oriented. Willing to work around your schedule. Made patients and their family feel at home. Offer educational help and reimbursement.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to get. And would work around your schedule but expected you to give extra for doing this. Employees have a lot of good ideas but they don't listen to them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to both sides. Think and investigate before you act. Need better hands on training not more videos. Management spends to much time in meetings they need to be on the floor to address the issues. And pitch in as needed, so the employees they are concerned with issues they have.

    Pros

    Benefits were ok, insurance rates would always increase when received a raise. Work was rewarding, great co-workers, family community atmosphere.

    Cons

    No 401K plan. Clinical ladder requirements hard to achieve while still providing patient care. Too much time spent on trying to achieve Magnet Status than fixing staffing issues. Bought out by Ascension Health.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your nurses!!! Management needed to actually work the floors to see how hard it was to meet necessary standards with available resources. Management was "out of touch" with bedside nurse situation.


  10. Great mission, great people, great job.

    Pros

    Management really cares and understands the balance between work and family and encourages open communication. Appreciates good work and tells you so. Good benefits and flexible schedules depending on area of work. Co-workers collaborate well together. Many opportunities to serve the community through various internal fundraising events to aid those less fortunate.

    Cons

    More opportunities for improving technical skills through training opportunities. Budgets are often tight and salaries low compared to companies not in the healthcare field.
