    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I feel very well supported by my supervisors and they understand community and it's needs. They've helped me to grow and allowed me to incorporate my passions into my work. The leadership I interact with in Behavioral Health is on point. One of the best benefits is that any medical service you have done at Truman is free - they wave the co-pay and deductible. Need a CT scan? Free. Have a baby? Free. After a year of working in certain jobs within the Behavioral Health department you are eligible for a program called Career Ladder in which you select things that you will do above and beyond your current job - then six months after showing that you are doing them, you get either a 3% raise or a 7%-10% raise depending on how many things you select to do.

    Cons

    Everything I would complain about it rather petty and program specific. The one major thing is that our annual cost-of-living increase you get at your performance review is low (typically it's 3%). It's been 1%-1.5% for the last couple of years. It all depends on how the budget looks. They typically announce it sometime towards the end of the fiscal year. Word on the street is that we may get a 2.5% this year, but it's not clear and I won't be holding my breath.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the cost-of-living increase back to the typical 3% - I know, I know, the budget doesn't support it. However, it has in the past for many years. If you can't increase cost-of-living provide another benefit to supplement, more paid time-off? Another holiday off a year?

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers

    Pros

    Being a safety net hospital if your heart is to serve the underprivileged, this is one place to do so. Overall, a pleasant workforce. Nice, down to earth employees.

    Cons

    It all depends on what you're looking for. The hospital has a lot of turn over and it seems to me that it is a result of an outdated organizational culture. There is little room for innovation, risk taking, and therefore growth both for an employee as for the organization as a whole. Superficial support later translates into red tape. If you're looking for a stable career with no growth, just your basic 9-5, this could be for you. Not so for me.

    You'll need to expand your opportunities for growth to attract millennials.
