    Pros

    The company offers some good benefits.

    Cons

    They do not keep their word regarding patient load.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word and do not exceed the national suggested best practice guideline of 5 patients to every 1 nurse. This will decrease employee turnover as well as monies spent on the new hire process. Additionally it will increase your patient satisfaction scores, because they will be safely and adequately care for.

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

    Pros

    As senior dietary supervisor, I'm making the most I've ever made, but the other employees are difficult and at times it's like dealing with children. I work 11/12 in the afternoon to 8 at night which is a crappy schedule.. I get every other weekend off

    Cons

    They hired me for full time and now I'm getting like 60/65 hours every two weeks.. I'm forced to use all of my PTO hours every payday to make a full two week check, so, I've been there two years without a single paid day off!

    Advice to Management

    If your employees are full time give them 40 hours!! People need vacation for their personal well being and not allowing them a vacation just to keep your labor cost down so you get a big bonus will get you cranky, worn down employees who don't like you or their job anymore.
