Lourdes has been my employer for 17 years, and have allowed me to learn and grow. It's a good place to work.

EmployeeWorked at Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Hospital, Inc. in Binghamton, NY at the time of review.

What I like

Lourdes/Ascension Health are very supportive and helpful. Not one person in Binghamton was laid off or furloughed due to the Covid pandemic. Benefits are good and the people I work with are (mainly) awesome.

What I dislike

None that I can think of at this time, especially considering how well we are treated in these crazy times.

Suggestions for improvement

Communication can always improve, although it is better than ever these days. I wish that my immediate supervisor were a stronger leader but she tries and she cares.

Company Culture

Our mangervery strong,so we struggle as a team is not

Challenging Work

Outreach in 4 counties

EmployeeWorked at Ascension SE Wisconsin Hospital, Inc. in Milwaukee, WI at the time of review.

What I like

Been here 17 years, pay is better due to the metropolitan area than the rural area I live in.

What I dislike

Impersonal since becoming Ascension. I think it is just too big.

Suggestions for improvement

You need to ask the people carrying out the company directives for input. You are creating a mindless group of employees that take no ownership in the company because they have no say.

Company Culture

It is a job

Work-Life Balance

Good luck getting time off, I have over 265 hours of vacation banked

Teamwork

But when you do the feedback is about how mean you are when you do interact openly and honestly

Office / Work Environment

Unable to choose softer lighting, better HVAC control is absent

Challenging Work

The work is easy. My coworkers are a bunch of ignoramuses

Internal Communication

Only about things that look good

Freedom to work independently

New leadership micromanages everything

EmployeeWorked at Ascension Providence Rochester Hills Hospital in Rochester, MI at the time of review.

What I like

good 401k match. Kind to new nurses. Lots of flexibility. Write our own schedules. Only every 3rd weekend. Moved from nights to days in just a year.

What I dislike

Always feeling unferstaffed, no bonuses, minimal wage increases each year

Suggestions for improvement

staffing! I should not be caring for an ICU patient for hours on top of 9 other patients! We need a specifically psych ER. They use up a lot of resources when our focus could be directed at physically sick patients

EmployeeWorked at Ascension Health (Indianapolis, IN / United States) in St. Louis, MO at the time of review.

What I like

I've been there 8 years in 2 different jobs. They are both good jobs. The company seems to care about its employees.

What I dislike

I wish management wasn't so off-putting. I do not feel free to go to upper management with issues.

Suggestions for improvement

I would have them not be so nit picky over stupid things like drinks near by. I'm running 8 plus miles every shift and to have to run downstairs to get a drink is ridiculous.
