    I worked at Sisters of Providence Health part-time

    Pros

    Flexible for a college student (I worked per diem and during the school year I worked every other week)
    Coworkers were incredibly easy to work with
    Discounts on food

    Cons

    Pay could have been higher for the job done
    Doctors, patients and guests incredibly rude to workers (superiority complex)
    Stressful environment

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees (not just supervisors, but the underogs as well)
    Pay better wages for the jobs done
    Knowing work was appreciated would have made job better, instead of just being another cog in the machine

    Pros

    Great staff nurses. Specialty areas like the Emergency department the ICU and PACU have some of the best nursing talent in the area.

    Cons

    Inconsistent patient census causing shifts to be cancelled

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Sisters of Providence Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They do lots of little staff appreciation days. Mostly food. Which for nurses is awesome. They usually have good coverage for shifts, but at time the CNA or RNs were short on the floor, but the team would pull together and get everything done. There is a lot of loving care given to the residents here.

    Cons

    Short term rehab had two nurses, a med nurse and a nurse who would do a head to toe assessment and discharge planning for all the short term patients. Plus the Admisions. And discharges. And narcotics for those patients. Which nurse was which would get confusing for the patients. Also, that nurse would be the first nurse to be pulled if someone called out. So it was treated like a bonus nurse rather than an actual necessity for the very medically challenging 12 sub acute patients.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more per diem and part time nurses to give more buffer to the staffing needs.

    I have been working at Sisters of Providence Health (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, affordable medical insurance. Some changes in leadership might have a positive impact, but employee moral is very low.

    Cons

    Continuously adds to responsibilities without change in salary. Zero raises based upon performance. No incentives to go above and beyond. No birth control coverage. Poor prospects for internal promotion.

    Pros

    Good pay, good hours and flexible schedules, you can pretty much have as much or as little as you would like since it's fairly small and not many set schedules with most people being students that can't work often as it is. The work is very repetitive and can be overwhelming at first, but gets very easy and becomes almost a secondary task to you, I've only been there a month and have it down pretty good. The residents are usually very kind and can be a joy to be around when you have to go up to the floors and stock kitchens or bring them food and the likes. I've had a few conversations with them, and sometimes the obnoxious randomness that they do is funny to me so it brings me a nice smile in the middle of a work day.

    Cons

    Fast paced, this can be a pro however to some people. Can be unpredictable at times due to the nature of working in a kitchen, mistakes are bound to happen. Some of the work gets kinda gross and gets you dirty if you're washing dishes/pots (I wash pots). The residents could be troublesome to some people, but usually are fairly tame (besides some screaming but you can deal with that. to me it's usually very comedic).

    Pros

    Great staff, so much opportunity to help seniors without the red tape of traditional insurance models. We can see people's lives change.

    Cons

    Being new, we are always learning & therefore changing how we conduct business which can be frustrating to people who don't like change. We are part of a national company so have lost autonomy in some areas.
