    I worked at St. John's Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lower than average workplace "drama".

    Cons

    Upper management (CEO, CFO, etc.) change frequently, causing some instability.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on patient care and less on the bottom line.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at St. John's Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The health benefits are above average.

    Cons

    Nepotism, feminism, and unrealistic work loads. Very little training to work from. Feedback for performance is inconsistent, you will be fine one week and fired the next for the same work. Unless you are a desperate single mom from the area do not bother applying. Males need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Managers can not effectively manage from across the country. Do not assume that supervisors care about their employees. Patient experience is not a green light to step on your workforce, take some ethics classes.

    I have been working at St. John's Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Administration tries their best to make you feel welcome. Small home like atmosphere in hospitals are rare but they pull it off. Fun place to work with great staff.

    Cons

    professional growth isn't going to happen very much here as they are a small time hospital. They are tied to UH and St Vincent's too much and to me feels like it has a negative impact on what we could be. This hospital is treated very much like a satellite that can at times be poorly managed. Budgets are tight here too for raises and department growth.

    Advice to Management

    While administration tries their best, certain department managers dont care about their department, but more how they look in their fancy title. I advise you to look into your skilled employees and make them want to enjoy where they work instead of how big your bonus will be.

    I have been working at St. John's Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    With St. John's I have had many opportunities to build a solid experience base working in many areas of healthcare. There has been a high degree of autonomy and opportunity for creativity within the areas I have been employed. Fellow employees have been wonderful team members, highly intelligent, and motivated to do good work in our community.

    Cons

    Some areas of administration/senior management can be very self serving, not transparent, there is low trust, and low sense of security. Pay is absolute minimum for the job description with very little opportunity to move up in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, honesty, visibility, is always best.

    I have been working at St. John's Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The medical benefits are the only good qualities of this job.

    Cons

    No growth potential. No raises or promotions. No flexibility. Unhealthy work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Take business classes and up grade the management style. Right now the company is using the old-style of leadership and they act as though employees are not self motivated or want to do a good job.

  8. "Worked as an RN in ICU FOR >10 years"

    Pros

    RN's in ICU had a great deal of autonomy and adhered to a high standard of care. A great place to learn. There was a lot of stability in that there was a core of long-term employees. Intensivists and ACNP's were highly skilled and worked well with staff RNs.

    Cons

    Management in ICU changed every 2-3 years, so there were challenges with different leadership styles.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure what the board was thinking when they let CEO/President Cliff Coker get away. His management philosophy proved to be fiscally successful, as evidenced by the partnerships that were forged and the wide expansions that were initiated under his tenure. His open interactions with ALL staff made us truly feel appreciated and improved morale. His daily pt/family rounding made our customers feel valued and truly cared for.

    Cons

    Unfair posting process, management does not follow Employee Handbook rules, Human Resource leadership weak and does not advocate for Employees, No real process in place for Employees to express concerns, Management truly does not want to hear or respond to feedback, No real process for Employee relations resolutions, Management will retaliate against employees who question processes. The work place seems to churn and burn employees

    1. Get a real HR Leader 2. Provide training for new Managers 3. Follow the rules within the employee handbook 4. Develop a real process for employees to express concerns 5. Have a real Performance Review process in place 6. Have and follow a real position posting process 7. Hold Managers accountable.
