    Pros

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at SwedishAmerican Health System

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
