Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

In general, there is a great culture at Le Bonheur. People generally have good relationships with their co-workers. However, there are many workers who do not pull their own weight or have a bad attitude constantly. Unfortunately, the leadership doesn’t address these issues. Also, in general, associates do not feel heard by management - whether it’s their direct supervisor or the CEO.

Support from management

The management in the Operating Room is extremely poor. Truly staggering how incompetent they are as managers.

Teamwork

I feel like some workers are not held accountable for their actions which makes work difficult and frustrating.

Internal Communication

I think they do a pretty good job of communicating with employees. However, we mostly hear about the challenges/negatives. When we hear about the successes, it’s usually because the hospital wants a photo op for the media.

Overall compensation for your work

Terrible compared with other parts of the country, even when you take into account the cost of living. Also the “raises” are literal cents. Takes years to actually get more money.

Office / Work Environment

We often had equipment that wasn’t functioning properly or we didn’t have enough to get the job done. Help with equipment/technology issues is often difficult to find.

Environmental Friendliness

Most hospitals are terrible about this.

Work-Life Balance

Le Bonheur is better than most hospitals in this regard.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Improve technology/equipment. Hold EVERYONE accountable for their actions. Have management that has actually worked for the unit they manage (this should be obvious).

What I like about the company

My co-workers were great. Overall, I really enjoyed the positive attitude MOST of the associates have.

What I dislike about the company

I think the management needs to be able to do the job of every person they manage. Or at least be able to make an attempt. This was not the case in the operating room. I also think the management needs to seek the input of their employees and actually utilize their advice.

Company Culture

The values the company claims to portray are not actively pursed.

Teamwork

This is one of the greatest struggles for this company. Certain staff members do not work well or respect the staff that they supervise. There is no team work.

Freedom to work independently

There really is no micromanaging at this location. However, there really is no guidance either.

Internal Communication

The company did a poor job of communicating with employees. There is a disconnect between management and staff members.

Gender Equality

This is difficult to gauge from my position.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This is also difficult to gauge from my position.

Career Development

This is a company that is not willing to help develop employees. This company has consistently shown an unwillingness to support employees that are pursuing an education that is beneficial to this company.

Overall compensation for your work

For a company that prefers to hire employees that are already fully trained with experience, the pay is on the low side.

Office / Work Environment

The hospital is very aesthetically pleasing but the necessary supplies are short at times.

Environmental Friendliness

There is not effort to be environmentally conscious.

Work-Life Balance

For the most part there is a a suitable work life balance.

Company Image

No, this company needs to improve patient care on many levels.

Workplace Safety

The lack of teamwork creates an unsafe environment.

Challenging Work

The job is not mentally challenging. However, there is poor teamwork at times which can make the job difficult.

Inclusive / Diverse

The workplace is somewhat diverse but not though any active efforts by the organization.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company needs to put methods in place to ensure its values are being put into practice. This company has not figured out a way to ensure that patients are receiving the best care possible.

What I like about the company

There are some exceptional employees that provide the best patient care possible.

What I dislike about the company

The unwillingness to develop its employees and encourage education.

Teamwork

No-blame culture - address mistakes honestly and work toward a solution together

Internal Communication

Daily and weekly emails from the CEO and others about successes, goings on, and the company in the news

Gender Equality

Rated nationally as one of the best companies for women to work at, women in management and executive leadership positions, actively seeks to contract with women-owned businesses to provide services

Overall compensation for your work

The health insurance benefits could be slightly better, but as far as actual compensation, it's fair, especially for this area, and I get annual raises (approx. 3% based on my performance evaluation)

Office / Work Environment

Recently moved to an "open space" work environment. Don't love it. Miss my office. But it does foster a cooperative atmosphere.

Work-Life Balance

Not expected to take work home with you

Company Image

I can rest easy knowing that I work for an ethical company whose number one goal is serving its patients

Workplace Safety

Heavy focus on safety, compliance, and reliability training

Inclusive / Diverse

Rated nationally as one of the top places for minorities to work at, actively seeks to contract with minority-owned businesses to provide services, CEO & other C-suite level executives are minorities

Suggestions for improvement

  • Paid parental leave. Better prescription insurance.

What I like about the company

Everyone goes above and beyond the embody the ethical and positive culture of MLH. There's no single experience I can point to, it's just an extremely positive place to work, with none of the typical workplace drama that is usually endemic in an office. Our focus is always on the patient, and everything we do, no matter our department, is with the patient first on our minds.

What I dislike about the company

Given that we're a company with about 14,000 employees and a hospital/healthcare organization at that, I would expect a slightly better health insurance plan, specifically re: the insured's contribution after the deductible has been paid and the prescription insurance, which has high copays. Additionally, considering that we're a faith-based organization and place a high value on work-life value, paid parental leave (i.e. not having to use PTO) would be nice.
