    Pros

    It is a pay check.

    The culture is poisonous but they think it is great. There are romantic relationships between managers and staff. The pay and benefits are terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start acting like professionals.

    I worked at St. Luke’s University Health Network part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good coworkers and managers

    Cons

    Significant management issues (turnover) and honestly some really awful nurses - I constantly tell people to avoid this hospital like the plague if they value their loved ones

    Advice to Management

    I'm writing this specifically to encourage aides and nurses who *do* care about their patients to just move along and not accept a job here out of desperation. I tried escaping to other St. Luke's campuses once I was employed here for a while and found that it's almost impossible to do so. They rarely allow transfers even within units - it's discouraged heavily even though you had better count on being floated fairly frequently because people leave/call out all the time. If you have a good nurse manager count yourself lucky but they're having so much turnover management wise that you'll likely only have that good manager for a couple months. Some of the managers have little actual nursing experience and it SHOWS. Working as a nurse aide at Warren was by far the worst work experience I have ever had and I've worked quite a few other jobs. I hung on for far too long hoping it was just a fluke and that things would eventually get better but I'm hoping to save others the misery - it is NOT worth it. When I started working on one unit it took at least 4-5 months for nurses to *maybe* know my name. We all wear name tags and I always had my name up on the patient boards! It's stupid things like expecting to come to work and at least get treated like a human being that won't happen if you work here in certain areas. I don't want to tell incriminating stories or anything which would probably more effectively convey how absolutely awful this place is to work but please trust me and move along. For his bit the president of the hospital is a very nice man - there are also some great nurses and nurse managers here as well. In my experience, those few people were not even close to enough to balance out all the other nonsense.

    Pros

    Great hospital at Monroe,flexible schedule, director is the best!!! Great co workers. Beautiful hospital.

    Cons

    Worst Human Resources department EVER!!! Directors have less to do with who is on their unit HR has too much power! Other than HR needing to be completely restaffed with people who actually care about their employees, there are no other complaints!! Would be the perfect place if it weren’t for the HR office on a power trip!

    Advice to Management

    Realign your priorities and those who have say in patient care. HR should not be as involved in all aspects of what clinical staff does!!! They even choose who to hire as a tech or nurse instead of the actual unit director!!!
