    Pros

    1. Patients
    2. Providers
    3. Co-workers
    4. Benefits

    Cons

    Management is malicious!

    They have their own agenda. They will tell you that they have an open door policy but if you try to report one of their own, your career as you know it with Dignity will be over. Management is big on mob tactics, harassment, retaliation, and creating hostile work environments for their staff to force them out. Do not ever report any type of violation because Dignity Health is big on covering up and coercing staff into situations that leave employees helpless. Management knowingly will advise you to lie to providers and patients for their benefits. There is no human kindness at Dignity Health for their employees, let alone, their patients. Policies and procedures do not apply to management whether company or State/Federally based. They make up rules as they go to discipline employees. They do not listen to their staff, blatantly disregard any & all complaints that could hinder their bonuses. Each facility gets to do as they please. Corporate will provide guidelines to follow. However, it is at the facilities discretion on how to handle matters regardless of Dignity Health policies. I do not even believe that Corporate knows half of the things that happen at each facility because management does such a good job with covering things up. Management threaten employees with their evaluations.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to Corporate:

    1. CLEAN HOUSE. IF YOU HAVE A SUPERVISOR OR MANAGER THAT HAS MULTIPLE EMPLOYEE COMPLAINTS, LOOK INTO IT. THERE IS PROBABLY A REASON FOR THE COMPLAINTS. ESPECIALLY, IF THERE IS A PATTERN IN THE COMPLAINTS. (DIFFERENT PEOPLE STATING THE SAME THING)
    2. DO AN UNDERCOVER ASSIGNMENT. YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED TO SEE HOW YOUR MANAGEMENT TREAT YOUR EMPLOYEES WHO ARE FRONT AND CENTER WITH THE PATIENTS.
    3. DO NOT RETALIATE AGAINST EMPLOYEES WHO HAVE PATIENT SAFETY CONCERNS OR REPORT VIOLATIONS.
    4. SHOW ACTUAL HUMANKINDNESS TO EMPLOYEES.
    5. TAKE THE EMPLOYEE SURVEYS SERIOUSLY. YOU BASICALLY FORCE US TO TAKE THE DARN THINGS BUT NO CHANGES ARE EVER MADE.

    I worked at Dignity Health Medical Foundation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good things would be the health benefits and co-workers.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites as well as supervisors. They do not care about their employees. I made numerous complaints about a new employee who did not do her work she only kissed up to the supervisor and tried to take credit for work I had done. They never talked to her, never questioned her about anything. The second she complained about anything or anyone they'd look into it. I worked for the company for 3 years and that new employee had been there 3 month's. The upper management likes to play favorites as well, Supervisors got away with a lot of things. Not to mention they do not pay employees at their pay scale. Most are under paid by at least $2.00-$3.00 if not more. They also treat you horribly when you no longer work for them and do not let you get all of your belongings. I asked for my things repeatedly and was ignored. I had to have a current employee ask for my things and the manager stated she would give that said person my belongings and she never did.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and do your job correctly. Actually pay your employee's on scale not $2.00-$3.00 below it. Actually have some "Dignity" and "Human Kindness".

    Pros

    Friendly and productive teams in many (but not all) departments.

    Cons

    Does not offer traditionally accrued Holiday/Vacation/Sick Time; everything comes out of accrued PTO. Foundation side offers lower pay than Corporate side. Recently a hug turnover in executive and senior management; some layoffs. Advancement opportunities can be challenging depending on your line of work and geographic location.

    I have been working at Dignity Health Medical Foundation full-time

    Pros

    I worked with some fantastic physicians and nurses, peers in what I thought was pastorial ministry for over six years.

    Cons

    As a managers plan at the very least 2-3 hours daily meetings. There is a new initiative or process that gets introduced almost every week without being vetted whatsoever, without any input from those in operations, who then get it dumped in their lap with little time or training. It becomes overwhelming -- the things you do well have to compete with (at times) with all the new processes being introduced. Managers have it worse -- they have so many duties and responsibilities, its amazing people still work there. There is little to none loyalties, the boss hires who he wants regardless of what is ethical and right. The managers get judged their accomplishments by the physicians, their bosses, the staff, the patients, etc. All of this wrapped around what Jesus' ministry was. In some cases, however the support and mentoring is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    It is disappointing that they would keep Jesus in their mission, when actually they talk the talk but never walk the walk. that is a difficult feat and they do so so poorly and without reference.
