    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Ascension full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work in a small department, but it has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. Upper management is basically useless, but my direct supervisors and managers are very good at what they do. I have a very independent job, and as long as I don't have any problems, I never feel like I'm being babysat or anyone is breathing down my neck.

    Cons

    The onboarding process is long and tedious. Very little gets done (by upper management) in a timely fashion.


  9. "RN position"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Teamwork and staff is amazing and wonderful to work with

    Cons

    The staffing at Elmbrook Memorial Hospital is consistently horrible
    Expected to do 2-3x your job just to keep patients safe

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and staff appropriately. Even in the age of nursing shortages, patient safety should always take priority.

    Pros

    Work Life Balance, Start time 7am-9am, Work from home opportunities after 9 months of employment.

    Cons

    Upper Management does absolutely nothing. Too many useless meetings. Pay. Allow ALL employees the opportunity to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having meetings about meetings.
