    SJO is an awesome place to work at

    Former Employee - Intern in Orange, CA

    I worked at St. Joseph Hospital of Orange as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hospital building itself is recently renovated and clean. Employees and volunteers are friendly AND competent! The working environment is open and accepting as well as quality driven.

    Cons

    I'm not sure if there was a con. Even the cafeteria food was delicious and budget-friendly with the employee discount.

    The mission is something the hospital and health system takes to heart.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Hospital of Orange full-time

    Pros

    Very supportive middle management and coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor senior financial management and planning over the past several years have led to massive layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to attract new physicians. No clear communication how that will be done. Unclear how well the hospital will function with so many experienced staff gone.
    (Regarding the question Approve of CEO below, the CEO for the past few years is Steve Moreau, not Larry Ainsworth).

    Was once a great and dynamic place to work but is currently struggling with its identity.

    Pros

    * Faith based
    * Great values
    * Committed employee base

    Cons

    * Core values are not as prominent
    * Consultants are used for everything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Try to understand that the employees and physicians are the face of the hospital. Patients receive care and services from the front line staff. Your strategic decisions need to include the voices of the doctors and staff.

    Pros

    Helpful staff, warm and welcoming for the most part. You will find a nurse or 2 who will help you out when you need it.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't get your allotted break times. Some people take too long of breaks and leave staff drowning on a busy shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse (RN), ICU in Orange, CA

    I have been working at St. Joseph Hospital of Orange

    Pros

    Highly skilled staff, friendly and supportive with a strong work ethic.
    Over all stable financial state of the hospital.

    Cons

    Working at St. Joseph hospital feels like a "race" for high numbers in terms of how many Pt. come through the hospital and Emergency Department doors.
    Overworked staff; Inconsistent policy on lunch brakes; Management does not seem to reflect true values of the Hospital any longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on the quality of the Patient care instead of how many Patients you are able to see.
    Schedule flexibility completely gone now. If your staff overworked, tiered, and simply hungry, patient care will suffer.
