    I have been working at Ochsner Health System part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work on the West Bank and I really enjoy working there. Company seems to have a clear understanding of the mission. People are supportive. I get paid well for just being a college student. My schedule is very flexible.

    Cons

    Patient population is difficult. I only work part time and don't know my co-scribes very well. The location I work at is hard to get to.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure to say.

    I have been working at Ochsner Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ochsner is a huge, constantly expanding business. There are many opportunities and a place for everyone! If you aren't satisfied with one department, or one title, there are so many more!

    Cons

    As with every job, things happen outside of your department that you cannot necessarily control, which means that you do not always have the ability to resolve them. This can be quite difficult and frustrating when you are dealing with caring for people and their loved ones.
