    I have been working at O'Connor Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Use to be a nice lovely Catholic Hospital. Pay is alright. Employees are the best! Great Doctors.

    Cons

    Just bought out by a Hedge fund! Unhappy employees, low moral. Management sucks, too many changes and too many cutbacks! Very bad union contract with SEIU, they really screwed the employees and we can't get rid of them. This place is worse than the COUNTY hospital! I would not come here as a patient. Verity all about $$, rather cutback than focus on patient safety! I had plans of retirement with O'Connor but now am currently looking for new opportunity due to uncertainty of hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little compassion to your employees. Why don't you ask the employees what would work instead of making the changes, we are the ones that have been there through the years, not you. HR- hire some managers that have experience and common sense! Stop bringing this hospital down!

    I worked at O'Connor Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close, family like working environment since it's a smaller non profit hospital

    Cons

    Due to non profit type of industry, I had to use my own PTO time to cover for holidays. They're not paid for like other places.

    I worked at O'Connor Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nurses generally have great team work

    Cons

    too many changes to a unit every time a new manager or director come aboard
    keeps the moral on the unit at a very low point.

    Advice to Management

    Dont lay off nurses who have given 25yrs or more of services just to down size and who were cheaper to have employed to suffice to a director who didnt even know any of the nurses history or dedication to the hospital
