    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company has great culture, vision, location, competitive industry pay, growth. Very skilled team to learn from. Views, recreational activities, community philanthropic events.

    Cons

    Can’t think of any if I had to. I guess I can complain that it’s too good or that there is a long wait to get into into the elevator.

    Pros

    Great benefits - EAP, 401k, medical, dental, legal, life, short-term disability, tuition reimbursement, wellness, etc.
    Positive culture, respectful, values-based
    Always evolving healthcare, innovative
    Takes best practices
    Yearly reviews and raises, based on company performance
    Lots of training available
    Ministries used to work alone, but after ACA it was cool to see the organization evolve and work together as one unit to expand services for patients.
    Rates best places to work in OC
    Great employee wellness program
    Lots of benefits

    Cons

    Everything was amazing, and the we were acquired by Providence (not a merge like they said). Providence is restructuring, elimating jobs and positions.
    Too many meetings, not enough time to get work done.
    Benefits are moving to be what Providence has, HRA and HSA.
    Providence is taking over executive and above leadership, which means middle management is left to worry what's going to happen to their departments and staff.
    Demanding and ever increasing workloads causing high turnover, stress and burnout.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the St. Joseph way of things. Stick to your values and vision and appreciate your employees.

    I have been working at St. Joseph Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay due to remoteness and nobody wants to live here.
    Beautiful surroundings (if you can handle the homelessness).
    Management is nice to your face.

    Cons

    Mgmt asks for advice and guidance from employees, and even will give positive feedback that advice given is worthy of implementation... yet never is. If they are just flapping gums because it's what the board of directors expects, it's not a place I intend to stay. 10 years of giving advice and being told it's good/usable/perfect... I can take a hint.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bother pretending to care what we employees have to say. We can see through it.
