    I worked at Swedish Covenant full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits such as insurance and PTO are excellent

    Cons

    Upper Management and HR are unprofessional and bias

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to look at why turn over rate is so high, work on making managers and supervisor accountable for ensuring staff is accurately completing duties and provide appropriate support and training to staff. Perform better exit interview and when you find that sever employees quit due to the same reason such as a bad manager they need to really have HR investigate the claims. Working hard at this hospital...

    I have been working at Swedish Covenant part-time

    Pros

    Swedish Covenant has proved a wonderful company to work for. They are responsive to their employees and seem to really care about our well-being. Patient satisfaction is tantamount and so they do their best to make us happy with incentive programs and rewards. Management is directly involved and on the floor with the nursing staff. They try their best to staff the floor fairly.

    Cons

    It would be nice if they offered limited benefits packages to part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but improve the benefits situation.

    I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time

    Pros

    Employees are friendly, professional and helpful to fellow employees and most importantly to patients and visitors. SCH is a stellar healthcare provider to the community with the some of the most advanced technologies in the Midwest.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement in my department. Healthcare cost for employee family plans are expensive and depending on the plan you chose you have to drive in to receive services in the only location SCH has making difficult for families that live far.

      I worked at Swedish Covenant full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      - Working with an at risk population is fulfilling - Getting deep experience wearing many, many hats - The good people who surround you are great! - When you work here for some time, almost anywhere else you will go will feel like a vacation - When you get to the top, life is very, very good - You can likely put in 8 hours/day and no one will notice/care

      Cons

      - Leadership is decades behind; tend to be "flunk outs" from other safety net hospitals (Thorek, Weiss, etc.) or practices. Only rarely will find someone with a strong background looking to join this organization. - The wrong people promoted and in places of power, making decisions without involving those whom it affects - Never enough resources; always struggling - C suite has little experience outside of the organization;...

      Advice to Management

      Bring in consultants; stop relying on internally groomed talent; disclose managed care financials; shake up leadership; do cost-benefit analysis before implementing over burdensome + time consuming processes that provide little benefit
