    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you recognize and retain the good ones.

    I have been working at ThedaCare full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at ThedaCare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Diversified as there are many positions in this company

    Cons

    Too many upper management layers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Job Security - You never have to fear of losing your job due to ThedaCares No Lay Off policy.
    Pay scale is fair.
    Management lets you know your appreciated.

    Cons

    Heavy Workload - salaried employees put in many hours.
    Benefits aren't the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many members of the management team are out of touch with the daily work. For them to better understand their staff, it would be helpful if they could have insight into an average days work load.

    I worked at ThedaCare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employees constantly challenged to improve organization and improvement ideas are respected and implemented. Courteous corporate climate; reasonable wages/benefits. Co-workers mostly supportive and collaborative. "No layoff policy".

    Cons

    Inadequate support of low - mid level management. Employees "heard" only when presenting ideas to improve organization. Significant favoritism in transfers/promotions. Constant changes in patient care areas are confusing for staff and don't engender patient confidence. Due to changes in health care reimbursement, "no layoff policy" has created more liberal "termination policy". Organization suffering growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk.

    Pros

    Not any I can think of.

    Cons

    The administrations attitude is it is their way or the high way. They tell you that you can be replaced. They encourage telling on your co-works. Even if it is something minimal. And the employee you tattle on could be let go for whatever you tattle on them for. Medical insurance is overpriced and has poor coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people.
