    Pros

    The employees are very pleassant and kind. Being a catholic organization, everyone uses a reflection prior to a meeting which is really a great way to calm oneself down and be able to focus squarely on the task at hand.

    Cons

    Being in healthcare, the biggest con are the changing legislative mandates which continually put pressure on the orgnaizations workforce to stay up to date on new/old/upddated mandates. This creates stress which in turn can lead to burnout but the organization does a good job of placing avenues for relief for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to retain and promote talented employees. The future of the organization lies in the young personnel that you have and by keeping the employees around to learn from the tenured staff, it will allow for this great culture to continue on!

    Pros

    You can help people and be proud of your work

    Cons

    Like many places, you are not always acknowledged for hard work but rather by how well you play "politics" with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to the values set forth by St. Joseph Health.

    Pros

    The people working at St. Joseph (Covenant) are some of the kindest, most thoughtful individuals I have ever met. The senior management cares about the employees and for the most part are all quite friendly. The front-line staff cares about patients a lot: I would frequently be called by nurses because of billing or equipment issues that would adversely affect the patient later down the road, and I could tell they truly cared about fighting for their patients. Even the CEO would take time to get to know everybody by name.

    Cons

    People settle in Lubbock and don't move. This means that within Covenant, there is a substantial amount of gossip and long-term relationships (20+ years). Additionally, there's little room to move up within the industry. My largest issue was that the company seemed to be directionless for the longest period of time. We have tons of metrics, but I rarely saw any concrete plans to move us past "business as usual".

    Advice to Management

    We have a strategic plan cooked up by some of the brightest minds I've ever met, but nobody outside of a select inner circle knows about it. Forget company secrets for a second and at least give the frontline staff the basics. They're yearning for an exciting new direction to work towards, and unless they can see the big picture on where we want the entire health system to be their imaginations won't be stimulated.

    Pros

    Great company culture. The entire team here really has a nice positive attitude and they work well with each other. I spent some time in the Corporate office. It is the kind of place where people hold the door for each other and visitors are always asked if they need directions

    Cons

    I was not on the team long enough to appreciate any significant issues

    Pros

    The people of St Joseph are really awesome!

    Cons

    The fact that you have to take personal time off when you experience an illness. They don't believe in "sick time"...it's disturbing coming from a Catholic organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing
