Patients were a pleasure to work with
Ophthalmic Technician (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAJune 8, 2015
I loved the patients, poor management. Most of the staff was great to with. I had been in private practice before working here, and I found the institution to be very political.

Decent company
Instrument Coordinator (Current Employee), Jefferson, LAMay 28, 2015
Decent company to work for.
Pay is not at the national standard.
I am not managed by the company.
Most co-workers in the sterile processing department are not qualified for the job duties entailed and do not understand the importance of how their job greatly impacts patient care.

Ochsner owns Louisiana but is it worth its name in the community?
HR (Current Employee), New Orleans, LAMay 20, 2015
Pros: Work Life Balance, Notoriety, Locations
Cons: Political, Bureaucratic, Low Salaries
Bureaucracy and Politics are thick at this organization. In my role and with my experience, skillset andresponsibilities, I was paid more than $20K per year under market value, according to the Louisiana Workforce Commission's marketplace salary data. You will not find a better culture (specifically Baptist Hospital) and quality patient care is of the utmost importance. The organization is slow to get anything accomplished administratively and some of its policies are too rigid for the culture of the community that it serves.

It is a a wonderful learning facility.
Occupational Therapy Assistant (Current Employee), New Orleans, LAApril 12, 2015
Pros: Very productive facility
Cons: Lunch meetings/extra hours/weekend mandatory
My day begins at 7:00AM and can last until 5:00 PM. There are frequently no lunch breaks because this is valuable time for documentation of care plans. Time-off is rare and flex days are extremely difficult to move. The most enjoyable part of the job are the interesting patients we care for and educate.

Enjoyable job
Patient Account Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAJune 5, 2014
Pros: great coworkers
Cons: management
Ochsner is a reputable organization but not all departments run on the same ethics that the company tries to instill. Upper Management in the PACS department lacks the people skills and empathy to run that department. The most enjoyable part of the job is assisting the patients with their concerns and knowing that at the end of the call you have helped a patient feel more confident that Ochsner care about them. Hardest part of the job is management making employees feel browbeaten. The coworkers work EXREMELY WELL together and are ALWAYS helping and uplifting each other.

Great place to work!!
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAMarch 13, 2014
Pros: friendship and loyalty
Cons: none.
Going in to work was as though I was going to a social event. Many friends made here.
I enjoyed solving problems and interacting with medical staff. When you are working and have one goal in mind, the patient's welfare, then your going to be a team player with everyone. I don't believe any task is too big or too small when everyone is on the same page...everything is important. Having a positive attitude walking in to a task is a good thing!!! No matter what is going around, there is a way to look at a task and a way to not look at it. This is always going to be a choice; it's easier when one chooses to see a positive outcome and just go with it.
