    I worked at St. Luke's Episcopal Health System as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are great. Management is on the works of being more concrete. Future is looking for stable.

    Cons

    High number of turnover of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better onboarding, more direction for those that take advantage and less micromanaging the employees that work for the future of the company. Staff that piddles for 20 hours of their 40 hour work week and then other staff that work 60 hours for their 40 hour work week.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Unless you're on a huge project, your workload is fairly reasonable.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't that great. One would think that a hospital would have terrific health benefits. Not really.

    Former Employee - RN Operating Room in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - RN Operating Room in Houston, TX

    I worked at St. Luke's Episcopal Health System full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Used to have an excellent reputation. In regards to management: high senior management turnover. Immediate managers: results may vary.

    Cons

    Managers feel free to make openly racist comments. Politics are also race-based. I was actually asked about race repeatedly by different managers. Management and their favorite stay follows race lines, followed by staff-sycophants. Do not expect that going above and beyond and/or being good as well as hard-working means anything. To be fired apparently is difficult: I guess they need proof that you intentionally killed a patient. However, they will chase you off if they think you might question practices (like parking patients in the hallway before surgery and leaving them there)!!
    Benefits are TERRIBLE: expensive but cover little. If you need a medical leave, you are not paid for 30 days before they will even consider giving you partial payment. High deductibles.
     The doctors that complain loudly are treated with kid gloves. One even said staff could be replaced with homeless people. Another would say he was going to "tell his dad" (a highly placed surgeon); did I somehow end up back in school? Quality is not rewarded even for surgeons, only the complainers get extra rooms, etc.
      I do not recommend this as a place of employment or to allow your friends and families to be patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on managers: make sure they do not break the law or allow patients to be placed in danger. Also, just because "we've always done it that way", does not make it good practice. Don't reward surgeons based on length of tenure or volume of complaints.

    Pros

    Great people as long as you're talking about the one's that have been there for a while.

    Cons

    The system was just bought out by CHI (Catholic Health Initiatives) and they have destroyed the culture. All of IT is being out sourced to an Indian company and they now have many contractors to replace the employee's who have left in mass. Really poor assimulation plan. Can only hope it gets better with time.

    Pros

    Front line staff and managers are strong and supportive team, they can build or create anything.

    Cons

    C-suite does not practice what they preach nor lead by example and not engaged in what's going on in the trenches and makes it very difficult to maintain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cop a clue, see who gets the job done and recognize the correct people for it!

    Pros

    St Lukes Doctors and Nurses are as dedicated to healthcare as they can be. The reputation of the hospital is top notch.

    Cons

    HR is really bad and does not support managers whatsoever in discpline or employee problems. Employee's were outright told that No positions would be lost due to the sale. Yet now, after the sale, it is announced that many departments will be outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start telling the truth to employee's.
