    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Patient population is very diverse and in need of healthcare, education and emotional support that I enjoy providing. Lots of chances for learning.

    Cons

    Teamwork and support of staff is lacking. Set up of current computer system doesn't support nurses in caring for all patients on the unit. Insufficient medical service availability on nights and weekends for a hospital of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate and encourage team approach to healthcare.

    Pros

    The benefits are a perk, especially if you have a family or intend on having one. All is done in house.

    Cons

    They have a lower pay scale compared to other area hospitals. Market rate adjustment was completed, but not distributed fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Pay by experience and appreciate your employees.

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical, mainly). Good 401K company match.

    Cons

    Change in SW directors has shifted priorities from meeting patient needs to focusing on strict adherence to arrival time despite having to work 10 hours every day (even if you're salaried, you'd better be there by 8 AM). Very high stress and little recognition of this from SW directors.

    PTO must be used for major holidays. Obvious favoritism of a few employees by department directors.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when some employees really give their all. Nobody wants to work for an inflexible dictator. Allow for flexibility--these are highly educated, salaried professionals--or have SWers clock in and compensate them for all the extra hours worked.
