    I have been working at Saint Louis University Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great money, lots of overtime and bonuses. You can make a lot of money. Meeting great people. Getting to experience your patients feeling great after a bad situation has happen to them.

    Cons

    A lot of people you work with your not going to get along with. dont get me wrong theres a lot of people you can get along with. Theres a lot of watching your back. People are not team workers. They are very quick to try and get you out.

    Advice to Management

    To become more firmer with the co workers. I have seen a lot of new management come in over the year of the company partnering with SSM. The management to me and many others have to be a lot firmer. The fact they have become to "friendly" caused people to lose jobs and become more of not a team player to the other co workers and give them the green light to tell the management team to get someone fired instead of giving someone a chance and telling them what they did wrong and could do to fix it.

    Pros

    Making a difference in people lives each day. People will always need medical care. Being part of a big team.

    Cons

    Getting exposed to germs but that's why you always wash your hands. Seeing sickness and death but sometimes it's nothing you can do.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you

    I have been working at Saint Louis University Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment with lots of opportunity to learn and experience different types of nursing. Management as improved since SSM has bought SLUH and work environment is now very patient focused. Weekend option allows for a more routine schedule (whether you work weekends or weekdays)

    Cons

    Working with learning inexperienced residents can get exhausting.

    I worked at Saint Louis University Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hospital receives a lot of trauma patients with a variety of levels. You will get a lot of experience working here.

    Cons

    The Culture in the ER and there are way to many students in trauma bays. Staff is rude and not helpful as well.

    Advice to Management

    You need to have thick skin and be highly motivated to work in this environment. If you are it's a good job for experience

    Pros

    There is about every single diagnosis/injury that you've ever heard of here, which makes it busy. It also challenges your brain to think, to stay on top of things and to learn. Great atmosphere and great support from co-workers !

    Cons

    It's a longer commute to work than I would like.
