    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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