    Pros

    Excellent patient care. The doctors and nurses are awesome. The team I worked with in registration are some of the best people I've had the pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    When Emory took over upper management changed. The moral of staff went down and Emory's management didn't care. They added supervisors and deleted managers. Now that the complaint are rolling in they are hiring managers again. Wow they deleted my job for what?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your staff. Happy staff happy patients. Everyone is on edge and it's hard to work well like that.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!

    I worked at St. Joseph Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent healthcare benefits. Generous PTO and education reimbursement. Employee wellness incentive programs in place. Gym membership reimbursement. Company fosters continuing education. Flexible hours - willing to accomodate changes in personal schedule.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive with other major hospitals such as Sutter or Kaiser. In fact, most positions paid an average of 15-30% lower than those at Kaiser and Sutter.

    Very tough to move up career ladder at this hospital. Management and supervisor positions in my department were all held by employees who had been there 15+ years.

    Lots of union/labor issues. Complaints and drama amongst employees made the environment feel toxic and unprofessional many times.

    Administration seemed to be constantly downsizing departments during my time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer employees more clear pathways to advancement. Management needs to recognize employees for their hard work and ensure that hard work, effort, and dedication is rewarded with promotion and pay increase. It isn't enough to just say "thank you" in the annual review.

    Pros

    Good team I work with, when were not pulled or floated somewhere else. Insurance and benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Always understaffed. Overworked and underpaid. No management; never know whose running the place. Never listen to employees and keep on adding more and more paperwork and computer work. Making no time for patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together.

    Pros

    Many of the employees are great team players, supportive and knowledgeable. The values that employees are expected to uphold encourage strong faith and charity.

    Cons

    Management encourages and then does the opposite of what they expect from employees. They promise new initiatives and programs to encourage growth and then they make hasty cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership/executive management should be held to a higher standard for the decisions they make their employees and the health system as a whole.

    Pros

    The only good reason to work here is they at least can pay you on time.

    Cons

    Everyone has seniority. There are too many masters and not enough slaves. Management has offered others working at competing hospital with less experience nearly 40% more to come work here, and turnover in this department is high because the educated ones will not stay since the ones less educated have favored the right people to make all the decisions. Pay rates are a laughable and the drama is endless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sack all staff and start from scratch. That is the ONLY way you will have the "premier" health system in Texas by the end of 2015. History repeats itself and this vicious cycle has gone on far too long.
