Everything is within SSM so if you ever have issues with bill payments, etc. you can always talk with internal staff to get things sorted out.
PTO is accrued quickly and fairly (in my opinion) . Health insurance is great, with large discount at SSM facilities. Double bonus shift can make checks much fatter (hard to do with a family though). However, 401(k) contribution is inadequate, the most you can earn as a contribution is 2% (and to receive that full 2% you need to be with SSM for 6 years). SSM health education benefits are different between hospital staff (techs, RNs, etc.) and corporate staff, what your told may not be the full picture. Hard to get time off due to inadequate staffing.
I feel the PTO is generous, but the ability to have time off when needed is difficult.
Everything is requested to be completed online.
The co pay is the worse
The executive benefit package is good. It provides a defined contribution retirement as well as a match. There is also life insurance that is equivalent to one and a half times the salary. The worst part of the benefits is the time off which is only four weeks and does not role over.
They even have benefits for part time employees which i love because some companies don’t even give you benefits
They offer Health, Dental, Life Insurance a 401K plan, PTO and offer Short Term & Long Term disability Insurance You have to use PTO time for Holidays and sick time if it is holiday that is a day you work or your scheduled to work.
Low deductible is best. Bridge insurance great benefit, but didn't need. Only limitation for me is 2-year lock-in for some benefits, but not a major problem.
As a Health System, the benefits are very costly and limited. If you aren't in the St. Louis area, coverage is next to nothing - don't get sick/hurt while travelling. There is minimal coverage for those that live on the Illinois side of the Metro St Louis area.
