    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.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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

    Friendly, hardworking and dedicated staff. Four core values of dignity, justice, service and excellence are noble. The hospital's location is in a beautiful part of the state.

    Cons

    Low employee morale,very high turnover and poor management. Every year the corporation takes away more employee benefits and raises are rare unless you are in a union.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of leadership. If management put even half the amount of effort into the staff that they put into increasing their patient satisfaction scores, the scores might increase!
