    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.

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Truman Lakewood had some of the best directors and educators in the city. Directors were engaged with employees and committed to improving the functionality of the of the system as a whole.

    Cons

    CNO and CEO are not supportive to their employees. Most directors and middle managers have left. CNO complains that she is too busy to help or advise her employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!

    Pros

    Truman Medical Centers has a strong cultural diversity within the company and the patient population. Medical benefits are good if using the Truman system for your services.

    Cons

    The biggest problem with Truman is a lack of appropriate staffing levels. There is also an inconsistency in provider availability. This causes many problems in coordination of patient care and staff satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate and coordinate between entities. Better planning needed between TMC and the school of medicine. Severe lack of communication / coordination between entities.

    Pros

    The diverse patient interactions, variety of actual visual contact, and differences in the workforce, being recognized by some of the physicians you schedule for and being told thanks goes a long way

    Cons

    the expectations for the pay, no recognition nor acknowledgement of the work that you do, their has been budget constraints that stopped anyone from getting raises more than twice, but just to know somehow your appreciated for coming to work and doing more than necessary at times

    Advice to Management

    providing staff with current upcoming changes , a monthly meeting would be helpful, and also allowing a staff member to relocate to another department if they qualify
