    I worked at St. Joseph Health System

    Pros

    The people were really friendly and helpful to work with.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything negative to say about working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dorothy Petersen (Director of Medical Records) was an excellent boss. I was very happy with the training, benefits and time off policies.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nurses really do have a say in the structure of the nursing system

    Cons

    The pay at St. Joseph's is comparatively low and they do not compensate for experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people for their experience. We have nurses coming in directly from nursing school without any experience at all and they are making about $2-3 less than nurses with 7-10 years of experience. I think a salary adjustment based on experience is needed to retained experienced employees.

    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

    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!

    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.
