I worked at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I had a lot of co-workers that became life-long friends

Cons

It's more of "who you know" vs "what you know" until your number comes up. They don't appreciate hard work when they see it.

Management appears to be on power a trip. No one listens to reason. claims are made about being able to voice concerns, but then being totally blown off when you do, or worse yet, fired.

The need to down-size is paramount until YOUR number is up, then you will be told to "clean out your desk" when you least expect it.

Quality means nothing when they are downsizing, with NO real appeal process to a higher authority. It's like a kangaroo court.

They close one hospital, claiming it's a financial hemorrhage, and five minutes later have a multi-million dollar project being built in a better section of town. Intelligence insulting "continuing education" no more employer contributions being made to employees Retirement accounts.

Advice to Management

Get over the money and start to show some appreciation to those employees who truly do carry out your supposed mission vision & values!
Many Departments are understaffed, but John D. Oliverio CEO makes over $3.5 million a year.
Be proactive rather than always hustling to fix problems. Find the root of what can make the organization better.
Show some respect for individuals, you have no trust... it is UGLY!
Instead of being focused in management of staff why not try practicing leadership skills.
Employees who have a brain are not appreciated at Wheaton. Its like the Employee that fits in the best is the one who does not use critical thinking (because you will be punished for it), its like Wheaton is a total "yes man"company.
Learn what empathy is and show it to everyone, not just patients.

    I have been working at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wheaton has a program called 'Community Care' for uninsured/underinsured patients. Everyone gets the care they need...no one is turned away. I have worked at 4 different sites and i feel that all of the employees are kind--it's part of the culture of helping.

    Cons

    the benefits are more expensive than my last job, but then almost everyone complains about their benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Fair, direct management where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Stable paycheck, rare to get fired, friendly low-level coworkers, and flexible schedule

    Cons

    Traditional midwestern work culture: old median age, worn cubicles, and tons of other old workplace mentalities. Human Resources miscalculates duties and management offers promises during negotiations that may not come true. Pay & Benefits are slightly or moderately below average compared to competitors, outdated software systems, cheap equipment at client side, extremely poor project management, rundown building with holes in walls, needs painting which would go a long way for morale.

    Advice to Management

    Create friendly modern work environments. Transition more "next generation" youth into leadership positions or help existing employees move up with a clear path. Stop using the value system to justify your actions & at the same time shoot down workers using the value system to justify theirs.
