  1.  

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

    I worked at St. John Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at St. John Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Proper background check on new hires

    I worked at St. John Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.

    I have been working at St. John Health System full-time

    Pros

    I have never had such genuinely nice and caring co-workers. It feels like one big family.

    Cons

    While the people are quite nice, sometimes it's difficult to get anyone to provide direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest some serious time in evaluating current processes, and how they line up with long term goals. The "no-goal" lifestyle is a difficult one to work in, because either the ball gets dropped, or three people are working independently on a one-person task. "Work smart, not hard" is a cliched phrase, but one that I believe should be taken to heart.

    Pros

    This employer has a mission statement to continue the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. The goal is to take care of people. Not only the patient but the family and visitors that come to visit. They train you to help anyone you see in the facility that needs help and needs directions, even if you need to walk them there you take care of them.

    Cons

    Like other healthcare facilities the economy has taken it's toll on this employer and has had to have lay offs in the last few years. This is new to St John in that the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother never had layoffs they would absorb you into other available positions before laying someone off.
