    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

    Plenty of opportunities to grow if self-motivated.

    Cons

    Not always paid for taking advantage of opportunities to grow. Hospitals are getting very lean on budgeting to advance their staff.

    Pros

    Just Culture; non punitive environment with focus on true advancement of practice and development of sound quality improvement measures.

    Cons

    Poor fiscal management with layoffs in consecutive years. Areas of focus to manage costs and improve income/reimbursement are lacking in scope.

    Advice to Management

    Layoff people who don't perform in their roles, or better manage the money so you don't have to at all. There is a tipping point to doing more with less; it has been reached.
