    Pros

    Co-workers are nice and the contact with the patients is uplifting.

    Cons

    The patient access division should have better management. There is inconsistent training and the expectations of the job is not communicated well during the interview process. You are setup for failure.

    Advice to Management

    You should make it your goal to help your weakest link succeed...not throw new hires into the deep end of the pool and say "sink or swim." That mentality is not fair and you're losing really good people.

    I have been working at Shawnee Mission Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve worked at SMMC for well over a year now and that’s still considered a baby. Most people have worked there for years and still say they love where they work. I never dread going to work. Best place I’ve ever worked.

    Cons

    Not as high pay as it could be for the entry or mid level jobs. Working in lab doesn’t get much recognition or understanding.
