    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly staff, great nursing staff

    Cons

    Administration doesn't seem to care about the stressors of staff. It feels as if you are not important.
    Supervisors and department managers don't communicate well with staff. There is no feeling of family, caring or commitment to staff.

    Pros

    payscale is fair, shift differential for evening and night shift, good benefits

    Cons

    Not a lot of potential for advancement for nursing unless you're willing to put out a lot of money for schooling in return for a small raise.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your staff, help out on the floor periodically on ALL shifts.

    Pros

    Swedish American is the leader in Health Care in the northern Illinois area. Winner of numerous National Quality awards. Always working on increasing employee and patient satisfaction.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive. Annual raises are not attached to employee performance. Director level management is extremely competitive. Lots of politics being played on management level.

    Advice to Management

    Make compensation more competitive with other health systems. Compensation is the number one way to make employees feel appreciated. Work on eliminating the politics game.

    Great place to learn what you are capable of.

    Cons

    Management is under so much pressure to do more with less. It's punishing the entire culture of the workplace.
