    I worked at SCL Health full-time

    Pros

    The company has a very strong missional culture. The work environment is professional, committed to quality and totally committed to the wellbeing of its associates and patients

    Cons

    Since the mission of a good healthcare organization is strong, the work never ends. Be mindful of your work life balance.

    I have been working at SCL Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It’s the largest hospital in this area. Some floors have great team work and want you to succeed. It’s almost like you’re part of a family.

    Cons

    Poor wages compared to cost of living. Some floors are very scattered and don’t practice up to date techniques and policies

    Pros

    SCL has great work life balance and benefits. My immediate coworkers are great people. The work is rewarding because of the mission.

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch with what is going within their own organizations. Promotion of under qualified people into leadership roles have lead to dissatisfaction, silos, and turnover. VP levels and above continue to fail to recognize the harm to morale. Little to no opportunity for advancement. Certain organizations are promoting and hiring themselves into mediocrity.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the effectiveness of your leaders.

    I worked at SCL Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SCL Health is very visionary and greatly values Spiritual and Palliative Care Chaplain services. Growing and Flowing with the program is expected yet supported.

    SCL Health is committed to supporting the whole persons of its patients, family and friends, as is demonstrated by its growing of Spiritual and Palliative Care Chaplain services. Where some entities struggle to appreciate and integrate Spiritual Care, cutting back on staff and even sometimes replacing professionally qualified and certified staff with volunteers lacking SCL Health in Colorado led by brilliant visionary leadership holds true its vision and values, raising service levels, increasing service avenues and adding professional, certified Spiritual and Palliative Care Chaplains as it grows.

    What you can learn there about vision and communication of value as a Chaplain is unparalleled in any other opportunity of which I am aware. Even though I had already enjoyed success in recruiting, training and leading grass-roots spiritual care collaboration, I learned high-level, visionary collaboration like never before and it continues to impact my life favorably.

    Our manager infused this not only in me but also in the whole team who have also greatly contributed to my personal, spiritual and professional growth.

    "We work to learn, not just earn." Mr. Rod Smith, Denver Bronco #80

    In my experience and humble opinion there is no better team in this area with which learn, grow and flow in ways you cannot anticipate.

    Cons

    Very demanding of creative energy. So Work-Life balance may be challenging with such expansive vision for the department.

    You need to be very clear about your boundaries and to be very good at self-management to keep up and have energy left for your other purposes in life. If this is not you, start part time and make it a growth goal with your manager. If you are very accomplished at this, or if you are content giving most all of your energy to this one passion, then dive in. That was challenging for me. There is no better system for Chaplain development. I would love to return.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management in general to keep growing in the direction of embracing the inescapable facts that some energy is always lost and what we hoped was clear ends up somehow foggy at every level of the complex, dynamic reality of healthcare.

    Over-communication before and after action decreases these effects by increasing interpersonal bonds that transmit greater portions of energy and by increasing mutual use of appropriate personal communication styles.

    This can only occur in an atmosphere that does not allow frustration over a lack of transfer and over fogginess to turn into an occasion to blame.

    The Spiritual and Palliative Care Department has been making excellent strides along these lines.

    I advise that management in general continues in this direction.

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly, the job is easy, and they do not ask much

    Cons

    There is no communication between management and employees. The management constantly changes things without actually knowing how it effecting the employees. It also creates a mess with projects and employees because no one knows what anyone else is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the logo no one cares you are wasting your money. You should be instead taking care of your employees so that they would give your company more business.
