    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Saint Thomas Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offering comfort to folks in moments of great suffering was a meaningful experience

    Cons

    Always issues - constant problems passed from upper management, and the pressure and anxiety are passed down to the chain. Toxic enmity between team members. Felt like the department needed me to "fail" in order to offload responsibility for their own stress.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Saint Thomas Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Free parking, plenty of PTO if you get to take it.

    Cons

    Forced to work alone on a two man shift. Constantly screamed at by nurses blaming me for their mistakes. No respect for the lab by management or the rest of the hospital. Less than average pay. No care for their employees. Poor health benefits for a hospital and will lie and steal to get more money from you. Will hire more workers for other shifts that are already fully staffed but expect you to do even more work than two people. Will complain about you taking any time off for being sick. Gave excellent reviews when no raises were available but poor reviews when money for raises was available. Have to pay for your own CEUs or get them the best way you can. Unable to take lunch or breaks and only paid for lunch time after the Labor Board stepped in.

    I have been working at Saint Thomas Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. I work with and for the most part have met wonderful people. All are very dedicated to their positions and are good at it. Busy but pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Not enough (nor time for) good communication between groups or individuals dealing with the same issues. Too often it appears the left hand does not know what the right is doing.
