    I have been working at St. Joseph Health Mission Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They genuinely care about the poor and are always trying to find ways to serve them. They try to make the employees feel as if they are part of the Mission Hospital family.

    Cons

    A little bureaucratic at times. Requires employees to attend a lot of meetings, which takes them away from serving the clients. Doesn't get along well the the partner agencies at the Family Resource Center.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to have a clinical background in mental health in order to make management decisions for the mental health department.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health Mission Hospital part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, Magnet hospital

    Cons

    Cut staff frequently making nurses work short-handed, unsafe. Say they have a "culture of safety" but do not even care about the safety of their own employees. Cut hours and pay, no union so able to get away with discrimination, retaliation. Would rather have people less educated so they do not know when they are not meeting national standards.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the employees that have experience and education. Do not say that national standards are "optional". If you are truly a culture of safety, care about what employees are exposed to in the work environment.

    I worked at St. Joseph Health Mission Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hard working employees, lots of people trying to do their best to serve their community.

    Cons

    Overworked employees, so many on anti-depressants. With budget cuts, employees are overworked, underpaid, and feel undervalued. Many in upper level management do not know how to manage, so problems fall on deaf ears.

    Advice to Management

    I doubt they'd listen.

    Pros

    Good teamwork among the staff. Patients seem to be happy most of the time.

    Cons

    Bare bones staffing and lots of collateral duties. Management expects us to baby the MDs and constantly push them to order correctly, read specialist reports, etc.. Lots of lay offs mean more work for the rest of us.

    Advice to Management

    Ask us what we need and how you can help the people who actually do the work that justifies your job.

    I worked at St. Joseph Health Mission Hospital part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Considering size of employer - they give plenty of little perks to their employees during the holidays. Flowers, chocolates, Turkeys and I think my department even gave out gift cards as well.

    Cons

    As a new employee, you will work every holiday and weekend. Life balance is difficult to achieve.

    If you are Caucasian, you could feel like a minority in many departments. Employees are speaking another language and do not care to include you in on their conversation. In my department, I was a minority and an outcast because I did not speak Spanish, Tagalog or any other language to be included with them.

    My department was fast-paced and they did not staff it well - I even had to miss breaks frequently just to get it all done.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your department well enough every shift in order to meet the demands you expect of your employees.
