    Pros

    Down-to-earth caring and committed management; work-life balance both emphasized and encouraged; tangible initiatives to institute mission, core values and culture in real life operations/programs (not just a bunch of "hot air" or nice ideas); environment fosters self-investment, providing ample opportunities to learn, grow and advance; very good affordable benefits; employee suggestions and concerns are taken seriously

    Cons

    Siloed operations with many layers of unnecessary management; senior leadership out-of-touch with decision impact on bottom ranks; Much too much emphasis placed on 'good on paper' people that don't have the goods in person.

    Ability to work from home was a great pro

    Benefits worked well for and covered my needs
    Other Employees were exceptional

    Pros

    Everyone needs an experience like this learn what its like to work in a cumbersome, ineffective out of touch organization that focuses on comfort and customary practices

    Cons

    Nothing innovative . A passive aggressive culture, few opportunities for employees, leadership takes credit for employees successes, are quick to blame for failures. Top heavy structure, not flexible, average wages, average benefits nothing to draw or keep top talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Erase the catholic school control . A great place to work is not prep ralley team meetings. Give your employees opportunites for growth

    Pros

    Competitive salaries. Good benefits. Reasonable facility.

    Cons

    Someone is always your shoulder. Managers have nothing better to do. Productivity is horribly varied. People, including physicians, do not take ownership of anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that actually worked before in the area they supervise. Have managers evaluated by workers.

    I worked at Trinity Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great coworkers and residents, beautiful & new facility, good food, provided with all the necessary tools (gait belt, sit to stands, hoyers, etc)

    Cons

    Management is terrible. During the interview process and orientation the Sanctuary is made out to sound amazing. Pay is decent but all the "perks" they claim to have make the job seem well worth it. They say you will receive a good amount of PTO, be able to easily transfer to any St. Joes hospital or facility, tuition reimbursement after a year(true), and have 2 anam caras and 1 nurse per "neighborhood." NOT TRUE. You can only take a day, weekend, time off by using your PTO. You can't just request a long weekend or week off months in advance as unpaid. You can only take time off if you have and use PTO. If there is one open bed in a neighborhood they call staff and tell them not to come in to save money and not have to pay employees. The DON will literally take the schedule and call anam caras off in every neighborhood on each floor if the building is not fully occupied. They will also add you to the schedule on days not on your set schedule and not ask or notify you. Then you receive an extremely rude phone call from them where they bash you and yell at you for not showing up and say they are making you work on your weekend off. The DON is also sneaky, conniving, and completely fake. She'll ask employees "what the gossip is" and if you try to do a good deed and tell her when others maybe need some help with how to do something the right way or when others are doing something that isn't right she'll call them into her office and say' "so Jane told me you were doing this or that." She schedules aides by themselves on floors that have 80% 2 person transfers, lifts, stands, etc and when the poor employees do it by themselves so the residents don't suffer she'll then threaten to revoke their license. She's also been known to threaten to revoke it if you quit, and deny transfer requests to move to one of the hospitals. It's sad that it could be a wonderful place to work if management knew how to conduct themselves, treat employees properly, and schedule the staff they DO have correctly for the sake of the residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. You're losing all of your responsible and hard working staff that actually care.

    Pros

    Great hospital for moving up the ranks into nursing.

    Cons

    Tuition reimbursement is extremely small

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important that management to lead instead of direct. Be active and involved to fully understand if changes are appropriate and can work on the unit
