    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Truman Medical Centers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Social Work department is still run by social workers, not by nurses, which is not the case for most other hosptals in the area. Very supportive supervisor and director.

    Cons

    Working with the population that frequents the hospital can be emotionally demanding at times.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more paid continuing education opportunities to staff.

    I worked at Truman Medical Centers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    GOOD health benefits must stay with Truman system. My supervisor and director of my department were supportive during a health care issue. I like the weekly farmers market. Truman strives to provide quality health care and access to healthcare for the community. Good working environment.

    Cons

    High volume of people with needs.
