    Pros

    Nice coworkers. Clean environment, great work schedule (weekends and holidays off), pay is decent, benefits are okay.

    Not a lot of room for advancement, management can sometimes come across as uncaring-at least in the department I was in.

    The overall culture of St. Joe's in Chelsea is like working with family. A lot of people are nice, honestly concerned, and helpful.

    ThE EHR system needs updated. It is hard to meet all requirements and expectations when not all of the resources needed are provided.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the interaction with fellow employees and the patients were kind and appreciated the help they received

    Cons

    For this being a hospital, the manager I had did not care about health problems and I was made to feel like I was making up my problems since it wasn't the type of condition that was visible. And I was made to feel stupid an unsupported by this manager, to the point every time I needed to be seen by him I would leave the office in tears.

    Advice to Management

    The people who come to the facility aren't the only people to need help and understanding, show that you actually give a crap about your employees. This was the type of place that you can go above and beyond for them and it goes unnoticed but if you go through a rough patch you are made to feel like a horrible employee

    Pros

    Recently updated facility with all private rooms.
    Great work environment with friendly coworkers.
    Management treats employees with respect and are willing to work with employees.
    Free Parking

    Cons

    No nursing union so benefits are not as nice as those offered by other facilities in the area.
    Some nursing ratios are not safe (in my humble opinion).

    Advice to Management

    Having a nurse to patient ratio of one nurse to seven patients on general medicine/surgical floors during night shifts is not safe anymore. Please get this ratio closer to 1:5 or 1:4. Otherwise, your facility is a pleasure to work at.
