    I worked at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stabile work environment, good PTO, work-life balance, offer meals to employees on special occasion.

    Cons

    Office culture in particular department treating professional people like children. Not allowed to text and/or
    make personal phone calls, eat at your desk. However, interim management made personal phone calls, etc. whenever they wanted to. Doesn't pay well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Excellent management team who demonstrate care and compassion for therapy staff to maximize patient experience. Co-workers always available and willing to share knowledge and skills! Flexible work schedule encourages work life balance! Rehab nursing staff is great to work with!

    Cons

    Computerized documentation system is clunky and time consuming. Therapists are not assigned to patients, requires constant chart reviews to get up to speed. Pay is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign case loads to improve efficiency and patient relationships; decrease therapist frustration.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Staff really bend over backwards to make their patients happy.

    Cons

    Nursing is short staffed, especially nursing support staff. Staffing ratios are still better than many places in the country. 1:4 on days in PCU and Medsurg. 1:5 on nights. Unless you are in stroke unit, 1:7 at night, I last heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster an environment that is nurturing to new learners. The "nurses eat their young" culture needs to end. We need a culture that nurtures staff as much as we nurture patients.

    Some of the higher up don't have any business in the role they are in because they don't have the experience.
