    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unique opportunities for career development, great benefits, wide network and room for growth. I have worked here for 3 years and have been able to communicate with my supervisor about feedback on job performance.

    Cons

    High Stress environment and low salaries compared to local competitors. The one major negative to working here is that there are many different departments and the education department gets overlooked. Since we manage ourselves it can be challenging to know what our expectations are within the hospital. We are often asked to do more than is expected as a classroom teacher.

    Advice to Management

    Review salary of all your departments to keep up with competitive rates

    I worked at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time

    Pros

    People within the department were super supportive. Very patient, helpful, and welcoming. It was great experience and exposure.

    Cons

    Work/life balance. Crisis management means that you can stay well past when your shift is over dealing w/various patient related issues as well as just trying to help everybody else from being completely overwhelmed. The compensation isn't that great when you take into consideration the extremely stressful environment you are asked to work in. Immediate supervisors/managers/directors are great but I'm sure they face a lot of pressure from "higher ups".

    Lots of times direct patient care staff are short staffed and there is a high turn over rate w/direct patient care because of how stressful the job is.

    Able to work with a wonderful population, doing meaningful work. Great training and facilities. HR is responsive and works well with staff.

    Cons

    Limited career mobility (not limited to this organization, but to the field as a whole). Management communication is somewhat disjointed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication pipeline open, even if it only to say "We are still working on it." Don't nicle and dime departments over little perks.
