    Pros

    ThedaCare is a learning organization that inspires employees to do their best. There is no shame in trying and failing at something here, when things don't go as expected the only expectation is that you share your learning, get up and try again.

    Cons

    We are growing fast and with it comes growing pain. Lots of restructuring and changes to accommodate the needs of this growing organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue spending time where the work happens because the staff really appreciates being heard. In this ever changing environment, it is comforting to be able to understand the direction we are heading to.

    Pros

    Lots of educational opportunities are available and the ability to transfer within is great since it is such a large company with multiple opportunities.

    Cons

    It takes too long to make changes with regards to improving staff for the units. Their are a large number of administrators and not enough nurses.

    Advice to Management

    You should never have to prove failure in order to gain more staff to adequately and safely take care of patients.

    Pros

    Lots of field work- if you like that sort of work environment. For me, I love field work, so I really liked having a lot of it. More field work=less office desk time.

    Cons

    No management. Literally, you are on your own. Need help-figure it out yourself because management is too busy for their employees.
    Raises are crap. Health insurance rates are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to figure out how to replace employees and start focusing on retaining employees.

    Thedacare is an innovative company with lots of opportunities for advancement and training.

    12 hour shifts are hard sometimes but it gives you more time off during the week.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you recognize and retain the good ones.

    Pros

    Great Coworkers. Average pay. Newer facilities. Located in a safe community. Good place to raise kids. Used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Management is completely out of touch with nurses. Very poor ability to take even one day off unless scheduled a year in advance. Everyone, in every department, is afraid of getting fired. Mass exodus of nurses this last year, still not done. They don't value speciality nurses, want people who can flex to all units. Too many chiefs

    Advice to Management

    Come down from the tower and see what the workers do. Value those who make money for your company. Get decent insurance!

    Pros

    There is a strong co-worker support system and a wonderful collaborative relationship with providers. High standards are the rule.

    Cons

    There is a lack of listening to the staff when it comes to how to provide quality care to patients. There is a complete disrespect for work-life balance and threats of lay off if staff voice concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people at the bedside. You trust them with the patients life but don't trust their opinions on how to provide the best care.

    Pros

    Diversified as there are many positions in this company

    Cons

    Too many upper management layers

    Advice to Management

    As you talk about Lean Healthcare it appears that there may be too much spending at the top and not enough "lean" there; as you can only take so much out of the people actually doing the work.

    Pros

    Ideas for change or to streamline work flow come from the employees who do the job, not just from those in upper management

    Cons

    Not many benefits to the position
