    I have been working at St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The children, supportive team players, supervisors very helpful.

    Cons

    If your not organized you can easily become overwhelmed . No raises for community staff because no union like the hospital employees! To much gossiping rather than working which makes it bad for those of us who do our jobs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the winers go don't ask them to stay. They only create more work for others.

    I worked at St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children

    Pros

    the work with children and rehab therapists are excellent

    Cons

    high school mentality . It is organization based on who likes you and who does not. If your boss does not like you do not expect to stay long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a company that is a machhine. Do your work, do not make friends, do not shgare personal info, talk only if spoken too, clock in and clock out. It is not an employee focused company. Human Resources are not there for you. If that is what you are looking for you will succeed at this orgnization.

    I have been working at St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children

    Pros

    We are responsible for caring for over 3,000 children with special needs in the community and we do an excellent job.

    Cons

    Healthcare has been very challenging due to budget cuts and this has affected St. Mary's operationally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Board Members should have terms to their tenure; prolonged instability at Senior Management is not good; CFO's should have knowledge and experience for the type of organization they are hired into - they should not be getting their training on the job.

    I worked at St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits. Co-workers are the best and the hospital really does care about the children.

    Cons

    I worked in the EI program so I can only give a review as far as that department is concerned. If getting worked like and dog and not being appreciated is what you're looking for then I suggest you apply. I didnt receive proper training for my position and when ever I asked one question I would get different answers from supervisors. While directors and supervisors receive raises all other employees have been working at the same payrate for over 5 years. The only reason I gave it a 3 is because of the services they offer to the children in need and my fellow colleagues make coming to work worth while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold yoursels to a hihger standard and train your employees properly. Give raises.
