    I worked at St. Luke's Hospital (MO) full-time

    Pros

    The health insurance and paid time off.

    Cons

    Management unwilling to discipline problematic employees; they will expect you to work harder than you already do to make up for someone else’s slacking. Forget reporting harassment, they will do nothing.

    I worked at St. Luke's Hospital (MO) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    St. Luke's has/had a robust benefits package although at the time I left the organization they were looking for ways to cut costs on benefits without upsetting the employee base including such things as retroactively announcing that time off wouldn't be paid out if you hadn't been with the company for a number of years.

    Cons

    Backoffice teams have little to no support from upper management, including their own VP's. Organization is extremely top heavy when looking at tenure, with a horrible retention rate for employees who haven't managed to make it to their 3rd year and a disproportionate amount of employees in the double digits. This has led to an extremely retrograde culture, if you were an office worker in the mid-80's and are nostalgic for the way things were done then, have I got good news for you.

    I worked at St. Luke's Hospital (MO) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay was good after 4 years of working there.

    Cons

    Bad culture amongst employees, in supply chain department. Nurses seem to have a good time. Very toxic at some points. No accountability between shifts. Management seems to keep a deficit of workers, meaning they take a very long time to hire people into open positions.

    I have been working at St. Luke's Hospital (MO) part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Learn how to draw blood, EKGs, insert/remove Foley catheters. Can do a lot more than most PCTs. Has helped me learn while in nursing school.

    Cons

    Consistently short staffed, I have had to be the only tech for the whole floor of 20+ patients multiple times... unsafe and affects nurses as well when the PCT is not available to help.

    I have been working at St. Luke's Hospital (MO) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    NCLEX- RN and Review Course Reimbursement, Pension Plan and $20,000 loan forgiveness

    Cons

    Lack of support and respect from seasoned nurses Low diversity — Observe for yourself! The poster advertising the RN job fair in April has ONLY Caucasian Nurses! There wasn’t ONE African American, Latino or Asian Nurse available! The seasoned nurses have their cliques, limit association and ignore new nurses
