    I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with hospital staff and laboratory technicians is great.
    Everyone is very friendly and tries to be helpful.
    Lots of opportunities to interact with nurses and some doctors.

    Cons

    Hard to request days off. Requests get denied often.
    Scheduling conflicts happen often.
    co-workers often call off or are no shows. It puts more work and stress on the employees that do show up and work.
    NO OVERTIME ALLOTTED. Manager constantly dips into PTO hours, without proper notification.
    Weak upper management skills. Upper management is constantly shouting/yelling at employees, saying rude comments, or be dismissive entirely to all staff members.

    VERY DIFFICULT to move up in this position. considers a promotion after a minimum of 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    hire more reliable people who show up to work.
    appreciate employees more, give more positive feedback.

    I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers, close to home, the staff tends to support one another, the parking lot is large and affordable, large amount of PTO starting out

    Cons

    Management, no ability for upward movement, very little value in employee satisfaction. Yearly reviews are a joke the raise is standard across the hospital and has nothing to do with an individual's merit or abilities. HR is a joke every response is go to the website they could eliminate the entire department and people prolly wouldn't notice a difference

    Advice to Management

    Remove the phrase "you are replaceable" and "you should be happy you have a job" from your vocabulary. Also don't ask current employees why former employees are leaving, ask the people that left.

    Bring back Christianity to your dedicated staff and appreciate them in the moment
    Learn how to take a good look in the mirror for the things you want to change...

    I worked at Swedish Covenant full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the coworkers are nice people.

    Cons

    The most disorganized workplace I have ever seen. Training new employees is very unprofessional, no one had time to explain anything, senior accountant and controller were given different answers, talking about absent employees (gossiping).

    Advice to Management

    Consider to have more workers and be sure to have time to train new people.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and there is a real team spirit among us. Generally a good relationship between physicians and nursing staff

    Cons

    Management has turned the place into an over the top penny pinching organization that skimps on everything yet wonders why employee satisfaction is in the dumps.

    Advice to Management

    You can only cut so much before you have start cutting your own salaries
