      Pros

      In demand jobs means job security, Multiple locations making it easy to find a site to work close to home

      Cons

      Compensation is not based on experience. No raise in 2020 and hearing rumors we will not be getting one in 2021 either. Bonuses given to Managers, supervisors and higher, but those of us that worked the testing tents or vaccine clinics received nothing. Supervisors and Managers rarely on site

      Saint Thomas needs HELP!!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Love the opportunity to volunteer at the medical missions. Good residency program with University of Tennessee training next generation of clinicians.

      Cons

      Weak corporate nursing leadership. Great employees loosing their jobs and drastic changes being implemented over an executive’s little feelings. HR is ineffective, allowing greedy executive to eliminate associates’ jobs for personal reasons. Also, unfairly eliminating positions to favor friends. All the while, Ascension’s PR is out talking about Catholic values and inclusion. Talking of camouflaged greed, the Saint Thomas Health’s CNO is also the System’s COO. Often making irrational decisions and since HR is incompetent, the check-balance is compromised.
