    I have been working at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great faith-based community of people working together. Supervisors and associates alike are treated with the same respect from the moment you walk through the door. I have never been mistreated or disregarded. Everyone's input is respected no matter the job title, which is important to me.

    Cons

    There is little opportunity to move "up the ladder" here. It may be just the current state of the economy/company, but if you start at part-time, you will remain there.

    I worked at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    As a 20 year plus employee I have seen it all. This organization has made some of the worst decisions in allocation of resources imaginable. They pay outside consulting companies to evaluate processes when they could work with the people that already do the job to improve conditions.

    Cons

    Claims to be a faith based system that lives out it's mission, vision and values and treats the employees terribly. Claims to have equal pay system wide and that is untrue.

    Pros

    Very rewarding faith based not for profit healthcare system that lives out it's mission, vision, and values. Both the leaders and associates are engaged in the delivery of patient centered care.

    Cons

    Electronic Health Documentation system is old and fragmented. Although there is a system strategic initiative to upgrade to a more current system. This system is currently being built by a multidisciplinary team and will provide state of the art documentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue rounding and LEAN process improvement initiatives.
