    Benefits are great and that’s pretty much it.

    Schedules aren’t flexible
    HR can be a little unprofessional
    Management cares more about other stuff rather than their own employees

    They should focus more in colleagues and retaining the good ones.

    I worked at Holy Cross Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, bonuses for mgt team, patient population, meeting community health needs

    Cons

    No room to grow, low pay, work life balance non existent, conservative organization meaning not willing to take on risk and buy practices which really reduces our reach in Montgomery County

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at what divisions are doing. Actually treat employees equitable, the health network shouldn’t be an afterthought.

    I have been working at Holy Cross Health full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are cheap. I am talking about your health care premiums. Holy Cross actually foots a majority of the costs for coverage. Working at a place that offers A LOT of heath services to the uninsured. I am proud to be apart of a mission that seeks to increase health care access and improve health outcomes.

    Cons

    VERY low pay compared to over hospitals in the area. NO merit-based salary increases. You get the same pay increase or bonuses as the other mediocre and sub-par employees. High-level leadership is TOO INVOLVED in the day-to-day operations, including things like time cards and running staff meetings instead of having the manager do it. HR doesn’t respond to transfer bids. It’s as if they don’t want to promote from within but they’d rather hire an outsider to come in. I can do on, but I’m tired of typing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, support, and advocate for your staff!!
