    Pros

    Health benefits are great, compensation is very competitive.

    Cons

    Your work environment will depend on your department/floor, and supervisor. You can have it real good or real bad. There is little room for growth as positions are often given to externals and working with senior management can be challenging at times. Lastly, Human kindness seems as pure marketing at times, it is often non-existent among co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Unless you are liked by Management, there is no room for growth. External applicants will be preferred for Management positions.

    Pros

    Benefits include a pension, paid vacation,paid leave, and health insurance. St. Joes is a learning hospital. Medical staff is kind and knowledgeable you can really grow as a medical professional here.

    Cons

    On-site management is awful. Managers don’t really care about you as a human being, to them you are a work horse. For instance; as a sonographer doing specialty exams, they say things like we want to make sure you save your body because those with your expertise are hard to come across, we want to make sure you are not over worked...but they then continue to over book your schedule, reluctantly get proper ergonomic equipment after you have begged for it, they book through lunches then get upset when you don’t take your lunch break, those that have had an injury on the job are gossiped about and any retaliation management can use they do. Those that have complained to upper management about some of these issues have also been retaliated against, and if you speak up about the way you feel or you complain about the unfairness you are treated poorly and as a consequence you are docked by management on your annual review which means you either will not receive a raise at all or you receive a raise that is next to nothing. Management rules by fear... and if you desire to make your job a career, you learn to conform. It just is not a positive work environment in that respect. Corporate paints a completely different picture about what our management should be like. They say managers should work for your team to create a positive team but in truth they are vindictive spiteful people and they make sure no one questions their authority. In my experience management is the one place that DH does NOT have it right. Overall, as a company, the pros out weight the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings, we are not stupid people and we deserve your respect. We are not the enemy in fact we are supposed to be quite the opposite. Instead of retaliation, gossip, and fear; have our backs try to listen to our concerns and we can all work together to fix the problem.
