    Pros

    High quality environment, good and intelligent people to work with.

    Changing jobs takes a long time in a large corporate setting. Floating means learning a lot of new settings and people, and what keeps them happy.

    Advice to Management

    When applying employees in full time capacity, make an effort to create for them full time positions.

    I have been working at Froedtert Health part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love my schedule; 3 days instead of 5
    Good about letting you have time off for appts.
    PTO can be carried over to the next year

    Cons

    Staff cut in half due to part of it being moved to another FH site. More work than employees.
    Staff is overworked and stressed out
    Weekend shift premium is a joke. Work Sat & Sun for a lousy $12.00 total.
    When an employee leaves, it takes forever to replace them.
    New staff can't park on campus, they're shuttled to another location

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff because they are making you look good. Remember everybody learns at a different pace and give adequate training.

    Decent benefits
    Culture of improving patient care

    Cons

    Horrible hiring process, out-sourced vendor terrible, knows nothing about company misrepresents which position is open, appears to use some algorithms to screen out applicants despite having a personal referral (someone who already works in same job and believed I was qualified. Took 4 months to get an interview, rejected 3 times before hiring manager over-ruled HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the out-sourced young college graduates that have no business experience in hiring. They are ruining your reputation.
