    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    in the beginning, it seems like the company may care about you.
    If you want to just "put in your time to collect a paycheck" then this could be the place for you

    Cons

    the longer you work there the less you find the professional support you need. Transferring out of what you think may have become an apathetic department does not necessarily result in hospital change of attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a lot has been said but turnover of the better employees is great as they move on to more respect at other institutions

    Pros

    Good pay. Monday-Friday 8-4:30pm. Ability to independently manage my own caseload. Advocacy for an extremely vulnerable population.

    Cons

    Its an inpatient/hospital setting, so I work some holidays as well as the day before and after Thanksgiving & Christmas (pending no prn coverage). Unpaid overtime often required due to the volume and intensity of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you take care of your employees, they will perform better and overall be more productive. Much improvement needed in this area.

    Pros

    Professional Staff very dedicated to the mission of the organization.

    Cons

    Service workers in the organization did not seem to reflect the dedication demonstrated by the professional staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture change is a top down movement, senior leadership needs to be highly and frequently visible to all workers in order for the message to be clearly understood and realize this is a goal the corporation is dedicated to .

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Social Work department is still run by social workers, not by nurses, which is not the case for most other hosptals in the area. Very supportive supervisor and director.

    Cons

    Working with the population that frequents the hospital can be emotionally demanding at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more paid continuing education opportunities to staff.

    Former Employee - RN in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Diverse patient population, nursing experience, exposure to advanced skills, on boarding for new grad nurses, benefits.

    Cons

    Downtown, lots of newer nurses, RN turnover, shifting priorities of leadership, financial challenges. At times can be challenging to work with so many medical students and residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep RN salaries with the market. Continue to support staff through rounding and genuine listening. Some nursing units are run very well, others struggle with staffing and leadership visibility. Recommend on going leadership development for nursing directors, and entry level nurse leaders should be paired with a mentor.

    Pros

    GOOD health benefits must stay with Truman system. My supervisor and director of my department were supportive during a health care issue. I like the weekly farmers market. Truman strives to provide quality health care and access to healthcare for the community. Good working environment.

    Cons

    High volume of people with needs.

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I feel very well supported by my supervisors and they understand community and it's needs. They've helped me to grow and allowed me to incorporate my passions into my work. The leadership I interact with in Behavioral Health is on point. One of the best benefits is that any medical service you have done at Truman is free - they wave the co-pay and deductible. Need a CT scan? Free. Have a baby? Free. After a year of working in certain jobs within the Behavioral Health department you are eligible for a program called Career Ladder in which you select things that you will do above and beyond your current job - then six months after showing that you are doing them, you get either a 3% raise or a 7%-10% raise depending on how many things you select to do.

    Cons

    Everything I would complain about it rather petty and program specific. The one major thing is that our annual cost-of-living increase you get at your performance review is low (typically it's 3%). It's been 1%-1.5% for the last couple of years. It all depends on how the budget looks. They typically announce it sometime towards the end of the fiscal year. Word on the street is that we may get a 2.5% this year, but it's not clear and I won't be holding my breath.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the cost-of-living increase back to the typical 3% - I know, I know, the budget doesn't support it. However, it has in the past for many years. If you can't increase cost-of-living provide another benefit to supplement, more paid time-off? Another holiday off a year?
