    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System

    Pros

    The pay is better than most employers, the constant turn over makes work life exciting. LOVE, and Compassion, is offerd by many. Just being in the church like work place makes you feel watched over by god.

    Cons

    The Complaints from employees are not followed through with completely, this makes you want to move outside the box. There should be a better way to handle things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your employees and give them every bit of credit that is due to them! It Matters, and when you never get credit deserved and then see someone else get it it makes you feel bad.

    Pros

    Pharmacy staff is excellent, as well as PT, OT, speech and RT. The house administrators are the best of the best.

    Cons

    Short staffed
    Upper management not supportive
    No matching on the 403b
    Equipment is faulty and old
    People need to be held accountable to do their job
    Housekeeping does not clean to standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff has to be at a safe level. People who work in the hospital need to be held accountable to do their job. The way jobs are being posted is unacceptable, there is a great need for employeement in all departments. This work envirnoment is unsafe the way it is, never should your units have their nurses take triples.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System

    Pros

    Good place to work. Staffed well, a big plus. Minimum contract staff. Pay equal to other catholic hospitals. Good orientation, and continuing ed, not rushed.

    Cons

    Pay not as much as University hospitals. Float or pulled to other floors when census is low. Pulled to units not always compatible with where your working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Float to other units, less often. Float seems to get most difficult (heavy) patients and the same person always seems to get pulled.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System

    Pros

    High-Level Exposure
    Large-Scale Projects with Organizational Impact

    Cons

    Narrow career path and future opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Phenominal role if you are interested in the planning aspect of healthcare, but lacks the operational component. If you want to pursue future employment in operations or finance, this is not the ideal job, however if you want to be in planning, this is excellent.
