    I worked at Ascension Wisconsin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Caring, empathetic staff who strive to offer quality care to patients with available resources.

    Cons

    Difficult to advocate for change and make needs heard. Understaffed, resulting in poor work/life balance. No opportunities for ongoing education for all direct patient care staff to ensure treatment approach is up to date (i.e. trauma informed care training, etc.). Challenging inter-departmental dynamics.

    Pros

    short staff a lot of bonus opportunities

    Cons

    safety issues, short staff, nurse to patient ratio

    Advice to Management

    stop putting nurses and doctors licenses in jeopardy to cut cost. Safety for patients and workers must be priority instead of dollar amount.

    Pros

    -Location
    -Good parking
    -Insurance is OK
    -Flex spending account

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -Poor management
    -No incentives
    -No room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally and stop with the favoritism. Make everyone feel involved. Something also needs to be done with the amount of bullying that goes on. My confidence and self esteem has went down since I started working for CSM. Write people up who misbehave, and do not do their jobs. Do not avoid it and pretend that it is not going on. When employees are doing well and are receiving compliments, let them know they are appreciated. These are just some reasons why morale is so low.
