    I have been working at St. Vincent's Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    community hospital-small environment-easy to navigate around

    Cons

    poor management-cost focused without consideration for the staff and patients that ultimately support the financial stability

    Advice to Management

    spend more time on the floor with the nurses-not just a day. To understand a problem, you need to search for the root cause-one day is not suffiecient-translation---you don't care about anything but budget

    I worked at St. Vincent's Health Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was a very good learning environment, but it changed.

    Cons

    They were interested in new grads rather than experienced workers.

    Advice to Management

    Try to see individuals, rather than just the bottom line of how much experienced people cost

    I worked at St. Vincent's Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work hours, laid back atmosphere. A lot of time to yourself and working completely independently. Room for growth.

    Cons

    Job security, old and complicated systems and ways of completing tasks. Lots of turnover at the top. Not many modern incentives. Have to pay to park.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new employee incentives for a younger generation. Also, offer better and more thorough training as employees are left alone and there is not always help available.

    Pros

    Great company to work with... Small, flexible, caring and great team of caregivers who put the patient at the top of the pyramid.

    Cons

    Parking in the parking lot is always a challenge if you work here... Spaces are tight so if you don't want to get door dings in your car, it's gonna happen.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. They kept the ED open while doing a major redo... Very impressive. Great community of people.
