    I have been working at St. John's Hospital (illinois) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is working hard to employ great people, provide a great environment, and great service.

    Cons

    Their follow through isn't good. Unfortunately mangers are given too much unchecked control, part-time employees with second jobs or school are struggling all through the hospital because their managers can't respect the availability they agreed to. Plus nurses and clinical staffing is so short that almost everyone is overworked and overloaded.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more nurses and clinical staff. Follow through. Support your staff and they'll support the company.

    hire more nurses

    Pros

    The pepole I worked with were very supportive and gave me enough autonomy to learn new skills, but in a way that was structured so o would not be likely to fail.

    Cons

    Pay scale was lower than their closest competitor, and there wasn't much in the way of well rounded training at the time. I hear this has improved.

    Advice to Management

    Male working towards management positions more attractive by not burning out your bright stars so quickly.

    I worked at St. John's Hospital (illinois) full-time

    Pros

    There's nothing good about being a slave here. Move out of this place as soon as you can

    Cons

    The worst experience of my life. All supervisors play favorites but here people go to extremes, no credit given for hard work, continue to give bad references to other potential employers not Allowing me to move on. They laid me off in the middle of pregnancy, HR follows no rules, legal department is the most incompetent I have ever seen, no support provided in insurance coverage after layoff, continue to say bad things about my performance, also the chairman intimidated other people who
    We're supportive or wanted to give positive references or help me
    Find another position. It feels like they are still in 1940s, pre civil war era where biases and poor treatment were normalized. One of the previous employees in the department committed suicide and yet there's no change

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be human, grow up and stop being so immature and holding things against people. Things happen, jobs and employees don't fit, that doesn't mean you brand the person so bad that they are unable to find the next employment, become stranded in the middle
    Of an already difficult pregnancy and have nowhere to go because of your thoughtless immature actions. Before taking such a big decision consider the impact on the other persons life. To you someone may be a bad employee or just a bad fit, that doesn't have to lead you to ruin their life
