    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Increased share value, increased board and corporate bonuses

    Cons

    Decreased number of employees with consistent annual cycles without raises and possible job loss and early voluntary job exit programs that began with employees’ having 25 years or more of service then 15 years of service and in 2014 the 10 years of service or group.

    Advice to Management

    Read the more Lee Iacocca to improve the quality of care and witness the return of patients via quality that cares.

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

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to learn non -conventional ways to minimize loss and increase efficiencies. Lots of opportunities due to turn over.

    Cons

    It is a hospital that claims to want to change yet is self limiting and relly does not want to change. They are their own worst ememy. Asked to develope and implement many impossible tasks and process. There are almost no financial reasources available to accomplish projects. Hospitial is run entirely by finance. Say they care about patients but are really more concerned with productivity and money. Totally kiss the patients rear-end.

    Advice to Management

    You will spend an enomant amout of time justifying productivity and the decisions that you make. Will spend many hours a week in meetings accomplishing nothing.

    "Corporate nightmare"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, especially if you don't mind seeing Truman doctors at Truman locations. Many of my co-workers really do care about helping people.

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what's really going on. They are all about appearances and don't really care if the work is being done. Parking is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time really getting to know what's happening on the "ground level".

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

    Pros

    Previously had good medical insurance. If you are an insider, and preferably female, you can work few hours and be paid well. If you are a middle aged man, forget it.

    Cons

    The doctors do not work for the hospital, but rather another organization (it is a teaching hospital). Too many rogue & unqualified supervisory ppl. HR is a bad joke, and evals are inconsistent and unhelpful.

    Advice to Management

    Many areas need a thorough housecleaning, and I don't mean the floors.

    Pros

    Good benefits and most workers are dedicated to the tasks they do. The negative reputation of the hospital is far exaggerated.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care much for the average working man. A lot of hostile politics if you're not on your director's good side. Very hard to move up in the organization, Therefore, turnover can be high in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the average worker and cut down on the office politics. A happy worker is a good worker.
