    I have been working at SCL Health part-time

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, great and rewarding work with patients

    Cons

    Little support from management and understaffed direct care staff. Corporate is Catholic-owned and they dictate healthcare decisions based on their faith tradition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your religion out of your patients' healthcare.

    Pros

    Lots of good people work here

    Cons

    Senior Leadership cant seem to get all the hospitals to work as a system. The sites just want what they want and they do not care about any cost savings, efficiencies or benefits of standardizing their systems and services. I know of many people in both management and staff positions that are looking for jobs else where. The work life balance is something that is talk about a lot but project volume and completion requirements have many working very long days with no end in site. It has been like this for many years.

    Advice to Management

    Changes in Senior leadership need to occur both at the sites and at the system level. If the current CEO would like to hear my feedback in person, I would definitely be willing to provide it.

    Pros

    Hard working and caring employees
    System teamwork among support staff
    Fantastic Providers

    Cons

    Upper management is running this system into the ground, they are secretive in their vision which in turn creates a fearful work environment. They have hard working devoted people working under them and don't take the time to acknowledge their efforts. Instead they chose to make decisions based on who knows what, in the end they will lose many, many good people.

    Advice to Management

    Realize how many hard working people you have working for you, you're driven to be the best, biggest healthcare provider to patient's. But this starts with treating your employees right. Stop making us Kaiser, we aren't Kaiser!

    I have been working at SCL Health full-time

    Pros

    Pay seems to be about average
    Lot of good employees

    Cons

    Poor PTO that you have to use for sick days and holidays, it's just a ploy to make people think they get more vacation then they do
    No maternity paternity leave
    No chance to review your superior and have that listened to
    Poor retirement, I think you have to be at the company 5 years or lose matching
    Silos between teams
    Not much upward mobility
    Not very forward thinking
    Poor dated methodologies throughout
    No focus on listening to employees

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a major cultural shift and time spent focusing on companies that have happier employees
