  2.  

    Great learning experience.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Have the opportunity to work at any of the four hospital in the health system. Expands the learning experience. Great colleagues are friendly. The only hospitals in Arkansas to be designated as Magnet and Pathways to Excellence. Safety is the new project for the health system to focus on any and all safety issue or concerns that are identified within the system.

    Cons

    At times overtime could be available for individuals who want to work due to illness, vacation, or nurses leaving. Promotion within the health system is a struggle as have a set way within which to advance even if have degrees to back up the desire position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to take an indepth look at individuals who manage areas of the facilities from top to bottom. Leaders need to see who is providing a positive outlook to the staff that is working for manager. Positive and cheerful outlook will bring the same outlook to the staff working under that manager. This staff member has seen where this is not happening and staff come in and are not smiling or laughing. If happy, upbeat personality is not projected to the patient in the bed, how is the patient suppose to get feeling better when laughter is the best medicine.

    Although undergoing major changes in the healthcare industry, St. Vincent has been very supportive of its associates.

    Pros

    I like their caring philosophy toward patients.

    Large institution creates "across-the-board" policies that don't necessarily apply to all areas.

    Pros

    I enjoy caring for others. I also love the medical field. I am very friendly and get along well with others.

    Cons

    I dislike working with a lot of drama but I guess that's everywhere you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my opinion they should offer better incentives for their employees and basically treat them better.

    Good learning experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Little Rock, AR
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Little Rock, AR

    Pros

    Compensation was standard. The hospital in general was run well.

    Cons

    Culture was rather "old"- very traditional, use of Mr. and Mrs. to address superiors. I prefer to not work for an organization that evaluates me partly based on if I lead prayer at meetings... The mission is quite strong here, even if to a fault.

    Pros

    Faith-based mission with patient centered clinicians...perhaps the best in the city.

    Cons

    No guiding strategy. Unable to navigate the rapid changing landscape of health care. Unable to compete with the strong strategy and brand of IU Health and unable to compete with integrated delivery systems of Community.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits and perks for associates, nice people to work with, was close to home, nice faith centered company to work for.

    Cons

    Poor management by Administration, played favorites when it came to hiring staff, tended to hire "pretty" women, paid unequally. Employment fraud occurred when a new R.D. was brought on staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints through the employee concern hot line seriously

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Little Rock, AR
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Little Rock, AR

    Pros

    Good people within my immediate Department to work with.

    Cons

    No raises in 3 years despite insurance costs and the cost of living increasing, Hours reduced when ancillary test ordering is low. This results in some staff members not getting their 40 hours for the week. If they choose to have 40 hours they must use their personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that management of staff at the Clinical level keep staff informed of expectations, both present and future.
