    I have been working at Lakeland Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great work-life balance
    -Transparent high-level policies and practices prove Lakeland is dedicated both to its patients and its employees
    - Provides a large framework for continuing education
    - Provides many opportunities for personal and professional growth
    -Provides meaningful, valuable work so you can feel and know you are making a difference

    Cons

    Disclaimer: I tried entering “none” as a response but a longer explanation was required by Glassdoor.

    The only thing I can think of is that something salaries are market average or just slightly off of average. This is not a con in my opinion; it is the compromise between Lakeland’s two values of providing low-cost healthcare to its population and taking care of its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with honest updates from the higher levels of decision makers. Continue seeking innovative ways to grow and serve the community. You are doing it right.

    Flexible work environment, great team members and provides an environment where you can share feedback open and honestly. The organization is very open to change. Wonderful people that truly care about providing excellent patient care.

    Cons

    The construction at the St. Joseph location is a bit disruptive, but will be well worth it when the new pavilion is complete!

    I have been working at Lakeland Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lakeland Hospital is a fantastic place to work. It is amazing how many people feel fortunate to have been employed here and what a name they have made for themselves in the community.

    Cons

    Lakeland is undergoing a huge addition and it indeed has interfered with our parking situation. Most of that is expected to be resolved in the next month with an addition opening to the parking garage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the “Above and Beyond” recognitions. Everyone appreciates a job well done pat on the back and acknowledgement for their efforts.

    Pros

    Great day shift team, fun to work with, management is there when needed and understanding

    Cons

    As a new nurse, night shift was rough. The nurses were totally different and became annoyed when you asked for help. They would give new nurses the heaviest load and then sometimes even refuse to help. The experienced nurses would say things like.. “oh, you need experience with IVs, catheters, etc” and tell you to go do it for their patient while you were trying to care for your own patients.

    Advice to Management

    Get ahold of your night crews. Make sure their welcoming to the new nurses. Many are rude and think having a preceptor means they can sit on their phone all night and leave you drowning

    Pros

    Management is active & vocal about promoting a positive culture, demonstrating a genuine concern for employee well-being. Excellent facility with construction underway on an even more modern tower (writing this in summer 2017). Slick implementation of Epic EMR. Physicians are well-supported by a surprisingly deep roster of subspecialists for such a small town. Lakeland has done an excellent job wrangling the region's outpatient clinics to become affiliated also, promoting better continuity of care. Excellent corporate leadership, robust benefits / insurance packages.

    Cons

    The town of Saint Joseph is rather small, with few economic opportunities for spouses outside of Lakeland or Whirlpool.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the money flowing towards branding and culture, because these items affect how employees see themselves within the company.

    Pros

    I absolutely LOVE the people I work with. They are fun, team spirited, achieve amazing results, and put our team members first!

    Cons

    Health care is rapidly changing and Lakeland is on the leading edge. You cannot blink or you will miss the latest and greatest updates around here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it real and keep rounding in your departments. We love genuine leaders!
