    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time (more than an 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.

    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?

    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.

    Pros

    My director gives advancement and educational opportunities to those who want to advance or broaden their knowledge. This individual has proven to be results driven which requires the entire staff to meet standards and learn new concepts which is great.

    Cons

    Lack of numerous resources with credibility is not always available. It seems to be that everyone is out to cover themselves at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should reward excellent team members to increase morale. Great consideration in creating a development plan for those employees interested would keep employees happy.

    Pros

    We help the less fortunate.

    Cons

    Working with people who should not have got into healthcare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow qualified individuals to perform certain procedures instead of tasking them to only designated level of certification. There are many procedures that I learned in the Army but in the hospital setting I can not perform them.

    Pros

    good pay for the customer service industry, great health benefits, dedicated to patient-care and doing what's right.

    Cons

    Favortism is somewhat of a problem now and then. While Truman is working to extend it's reach to all in the community, the majority of our patients are from low income situations. This translates to a variety of issues you might run into with each patient you assist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around you. Many of your employees are being under-utilized simply because their education or past employment history don't contain the "keywords" the HR job description requires. See the individuals you work with then you'll be able to understand their strengths and allow them to grow faster and better. Win-win!
