    Pros

    Helping people. That was the most satisfying part of the job for me.

    Can be stressful. It can be emotionally draining but that is to be expected as part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you take the time to actively solicit feedback from staff.

    Pros

    Friendly employees. Wonderful physicians and nurses. R.T. are the best. I have made friends with my co- workers, we are like family. I love how all the different units pull together for the best outcome for the patient.The health insurance is very affordable. The retirement plan is excellent. I like that we as the employees are asked to be on different committies asn we are able to have input in future plans.

    Cons

    I wish we were allowed more sick days. Six days per year just isn't enough for parents of little children who get sick frequently, nor is it enough time if you have an elderly sick parent to take care of. I wish the nurse/patient ratio was lower, when we have five or six patients it becomes difficult to clock out on time without getting overtime, not to mention I think that it isn;t very safe.

    Advice to Management

    Our charge nurses need to be team players if they are going to try to lead a team. Lazy employees need to be reprimanded, employees that are "pot stirring" need reprimanded as well. You can't run a unit to be a team if this behavior is allowed.

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

    Pros

    St. Joseph Health System is flexible with schedules to include a positive work-life balance. They encourage continued education and benefits are provided. There are opportunities for growth and development.

    Cons

    Some downsides are from a leadership stand point. Not everyone is open to large initiatives and consolidations that include major change. Also, it may be hard to adapt to all the new reforms and changes in healthcare.

    Pros

    The employees are very pleassant and kind. Being a catholic organization, everyone uses a reflection prior to a meeting which is really a great way to calm oneself down and be able to focus squarely on the task at hand.

    Cons

    Being in healthcare, the biggest con are the changing legislative mandates which continually put pressure on the orgnaizations workforce to stay up to date on new/old/upddated mandates. This creates stress which in turn can lead to burnout but the organization does a good job of placing avenues for relief for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to retain and promote talented employees. The future of the organization lies in the young personnel that you have and by keeping the employees around to learn from the tenured staff, it will allow for this great culture to continue on!

    Pros

    Excellent patient care. The doctors and nurses are awesome. The team I worked with in registration are some of the best people I've had the pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    When Emory took over upper management changed. The moral of staff went down and Emory's management didn't care. They added supervisors and deleted managers. Now that the complaint are rolling in they are hiring managers again. Wow they deleted my job for what?

    Advice to Management

    Care about your staff. Happy staff happy patients. Everyone is on edge and it's hard to work well like that.
