    I have been working at Ochsner Health System part-time

    Pros

    I enjoy the benefits of working for a large healthcare provider such as job stability, availability of job related information, and a variety of choices as far as scheduling. I feel it is important to Ochsner to provide great care to its patients.

    Cons

    The Cons are also related to working for a large healthcare provider: difficulty in initiating and making changes in protocol, having to work with departments located in different localities, not being able to get things done locally.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways other than endless surveys to monitor employee and patient opinions.
