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

    Pros

    Challenging work. Unique patient population. Level 1 Trauma Center. If you let it, working here hones your skills and critical thinking as a nurse. It's acceptable to question orders and request the rationale behind it. Also, a union hospital, allowing for protections found in few other places. I'm not sure about other units, but mine is very cohesive.

    Cons

    Large spread in the quality of employees and care given. The great employees are incredible. The bad ones are horrible. Same with the care, it's either awe-inspiringly good or awe-inspiringly horrible. Your skills are honed and you stay on your toes because it's easy for patients to slip through the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Back your nurses up. We have a difficult patient population. Turnover is high because of continuing higher education AND the young ones burn out because it's a tough environment. I've been a nurse for a decade, so I have the advantage of perspective. Nurse-to-patient ratios! We were incredibly angry when the staffing grid changed. Very demoralizing.

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

    Pros

    Working at SLUH as a RN offers great learning experiences. Patients tend to be acutely ill, offering nurses great learning experiences. This is a teaching facility, meaning there are many residents and medical students leading to a positive learning environment.

    Cons

    Inner city hospitals can be difficult to work in.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people that work the front lines of the hospital. The patients are for the most part pretty normal for an inner city hospital. It is a great place to learn, as it is a Level I trauma center and an academic faciltiy.

    Cons

    Management is focused 100 percent on making more and more profit. No amount of money will ever make them happy. Patient care is very low on the priority list. Employee retention is nonexistent. Only management retention is a hot button.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like they are valuable to your organization. Treat your patients like they are important. Stop worrying about your profit and start worrying your actual operation.
