    Pros

    Liked the job that I was given, the chance to help people and the room for advancement. Also, enjoyed the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    There really were no cons to this job. I had no problem with it. They offered flex time which was a big help for a mom with kids at the time of my employment there.

    I have been working at St. Francis Hospital & Health Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is plenty of autonomy.

    Cons

    You never know if this company will be open tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like you would treat patients...actually it states in the handbook that you should be doing that already. Maybe read the handbook again in addition to taking some customer service courses.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The only reason to work for MetroSouth is that you will meet some exceptional people. Their are many employees that are loyal, hard working individuals.

    Cons

    Management fails to think beyond their own little world and thus, neglects to communicate important information to employees. They also gossip and exchange information about their staff members with other employees in the department, or for that matter, with anyone.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to take the time to get to know what is happening within departments and with management. Department heads should be required to have management experience, attend management courses and at a minimum have a personality and interpersonal skills..

    Pros

    It was because of the Nuns and true belief in caring for people

    Cons

    Bottomline has taken precedence over quality care.

    Advice to Management

    If you take care of the people first the money will follow - Karma - Including Employees.

    Pros

    If you are a PCP, then they are still hiring.

    Cons

    They have let go of their entire OBGYN AND nurse midwife staff in spite of just finishing a major renovation to their OB floor AND started a robotics program.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out where true cost cutting makes sense. Wiping out a program like the midwives which were 1.5 Million in the black in real dollars was not a wise decision. Apparently firing the CFO was in order. What has happened is you have instilled a culture of uncertainty, no confidence and fear.
