    I have been working at Saint Luke's Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for full timers, not so much for under 40 hrs

    Cons

    Management sucks, are overrated and under trained. Big brother truly runs your life here.

    Advice to Management

    St Lukes has become more of a moral compass than a health care giant. They are now more concerned with presenting well rather than taking care of their employees. Money is the driving force and they really care nothing about you as a person or employee. I have several examples: We had a coworker recently laid off because HR determined that her job wasn't 'patient care' (she was our secretary) so after 9 years of service she was fired. This was barely two months after her husband died unexpectedly. We have another employee with 11 years of experience and with a new supervisor she suddenly 'couldn't do her job anymore' and was fired. Also worth noting is the brown-noser syndrome and it dominates every aspect of advancement. I've seen people refuse to do part of their jobs because 'they don't like it' but yet their promoted to 'lead' positions and advance up the ranks quickly. I've seen people with absolutely no prior hospital experience become 'leads' without having to go thru the advancement like the rest of us, all because management likes them. If management likes you, you will do well. Keeping in mind that most of us feel management is ill-equipped to handle a large staff, most fresh out of school, it all boils down to, 'it's not what you know. it's Who you know'. If you don't kiss the necessary butt you will go nowhere.

    Pros

    Really great about promoting from within, lots of opportunities if you're willing to work hard to get them.

    Cons

    Office politics. They're everywhere, but they're abundant here.

    Pros

    Monday - Friday with weekends and holidays off.

    Cons

    Cost of health insurance is high. With their employer health insurance plan any provider outside of Saint Luke's is out-of-network. You have to use your earned paid time off for holiday pay. No bonuses for nurses. Appears to be little room for advancement or learning opportunities on the corporate side of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication with you subordinates about goals and visions for the team, anticipated changed or need for change, and known direction of the department will build morale and trust throughout the team and entity.

    Pros

    Positive work environment, excellent staff, strong leadership, and work-life balance.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any true cons for SLHS.

    Advice to Management

    Having multiple people assist with one topic in different ways makes the job confusing at times. Sometimes I second guess on who to actually listen to.

    Pros

    They take their brand seriously, provide excellent patient care and do great things. Good pay, decent health insurance, excellent dental insurance.

    Cons

    Depends on who you are and what department you work in whether you will have a positive experience, a supervisor who is flexible or rigid. Feels much more like a corporation than a hospital.

    Advice to Management

    It's OK to laugh, have some fun and be an individual.

    I have been working at Saint Luke's Health System part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The outpatient Specimen Processing team is a very welcoming group. Each person welcomes questions, and if they are unable to provide a good answer, they will help you find someone who can.

    Cons

    The large volume of work can mean leaving later than scheduled depending on shift.

    they do not practice what they preach! the company states that they provide with support but they do not. I was a new employee and the management support was very poor. In addition, to MANY layers of management

    Advice to Management

    Do not take the word of one individual, do some investigation. There is always two side of the story
