    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.

    Former Employee - STaff Registered Nurse in Tulsa, OK

    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.

    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.

    Sales for Regional Medical Laboratory, a division of St Johns, OK

    Pros

    You can negotiate a decent salary. Benefits package is okay...pretty good if you are a Tulsa employee.

    *Re Salary: if you chose to take a sales position, negotiate the highest base that you can because you will NOT be paid squat in bonus. They make up every reason in the book not to pay. You don't get paid if the client is late with payment, or if they decide that they had any kind of remote relationship before you started calling on the patient, or if they are a partner in an office where another doctor is already using (that's just an added user, not a new client...the office is the client). Seriously. My commission checks (when I ever got one) was less than a thousand per quarter.

    Cons

    "Sales Organization" is a joke! No budget, NO training (they throw you a stack of business cards and tell you to go get 'em), SO many obstacles to sales...will not invest in patient service centers, they expect patients to drive 20-30 mins to a draw station when all other labs offer a service center on every corner, Interface for clients take at least 8 months, service will KILL you...they NEVER get it right from labs to pricing to billing...customers stay constantly frustrated until they quit (most do), the list goes on. Sales management is HORRIBLE....NONE have ever done sales of ANY kind...it's like having the receptionist telling the computer specialists how to do their jobs...CRAZY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone who know what she's doing! There is a reason turnover in your sales department is constant....Hello, YOU'RE the common dominator! The part that cracked me up most is that, every time, I (or another rep) would discuss obstacles in the field or give suggestions to get more business, management would say something like, "We've heard this with many of the reps (before you, now fired), and we simply do not agree. You just have to work harder/be more convincing". In the short time I was there (less than 3 years), this company went through SEVEN reps. My manager had a load of old sales employees badges in his desk drawer...he called it the "sales graveyard". Cute.

    PSSI- Hard work, Compassion DOESNT PAY- THey do not live by their own Mission and Vallues

    Pros

    PSSI- OMNI Medical Group & St. John Physicians--The environment you create in your own office is your own success. Many dedicated employees and Physicians that come to work to help patients.

    Cons

    no employee appreciation. No pay increases. Many changes in rules that are vague, then they choose to use the rule to their advantage when it needs to be used. Dedication, Compassion and loyalty are not appreciated at any level. It is all about which Director can make the President happy, they run around making policies, changes and "data" to present to Dr. Young, then when presented, it is not what they thought he wanted, then back to the drawing board. Pay for all employees is very low. All are paid $3-5 less then other health systems and private medical facilities. Budget cuts this year included you cannot purchase a $1 calendar nor tape for a calculator (that is required tape for daily batches) The list goes on. It is not the best place to work if you would like your family and pay check to show how hard your loyalty/dedication is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PSSI "upper Management" needs to be evaluated. Daily activities are all surrounded by what they think Dr. Young is asking for which is all "data driven". Spend more time and focus on your employees, once you do so, you will see an increase in positive work environments, better morale and more production.

    I have been working at St. John Health System

    Pros

    Awesome and immediate benefits
    Pay is decent
    Job security is almost guaranteed
    Training is typically pretty great, seeing as how it's healthcare

    Cons

    Constantly short-staffed, so you have to work a lot harder to make up for it
    Management is pressured with money issues, like most big companies
    Management doesn't always have time to listen to the "little people"
    Not much appreciation shown for doing a good job
    Tons of favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep places fully staffed, you're screwing your employees over (and we know it) when you don't bother to get somebody hired for months at a time. Work out some way to show appreciation.
