Janitor (Former Employee), Peoria – August 19, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Management at OSF could care less about their employees. Some people can sit around and use their phones to check out adult sites at work without reprimand while others clock in a few minutes late and are written up. Team leaders work with groups of employees and some can't get their work done in a given shift yet are allowed to work overtime while others are expected to complete theirs. Priorities are all messed up. Trying to get a day off is like pulling teeth unless you are among the privileged within the department.
Biomedical Technician II (Current Employee), Alton, IL – August 19, 2015
This company is a good company to work for. They create a positive work and life balance and provide decent benefits. The management is new, but they are working to provide their employees with the best services they have to offer. The job culture is young, but is developing at a rapid pace.
Polysomnographic Technologist (Former Employee), Peoria, IL – July 28, 2015
Pros: Salary slightly better than average
Once upon a time OSF was THE place to work in healthcare. But deciding to turn over management from the sisters of St. Francis to so-called professional managers has quickly changed the culture around. This unit in particular is somehow "managed" by an uneducated prole who's sole achievement in life is having suckled at the nipple of the medical director. Very dictatorial, not team-oriented in the least. If OSF truly cares about the healthcare ratings they tout then the ship needs to be cleaned of the rats that infest this vessel.
Rough culture when not in a clinically based position
Exercise Physiologist (Current Employee), Bloomington, IL – July 16, 2015
OSF HealthCare has a top down management structure with a very clinically biased view. The department that I worked in specifically was more community focused than the rest of the hospital. It made it difficult to be taken seriously.
Front Office Assistant (Former Employee), Rockford, IL – July 15, 2015
A typical day at work at OSF is very busy. We get many phone calls from patients to schedule appointments and to request medication refills. I do enjoy working with my co-workers and enjoy the patients.
CNA (Former Employee), Rockford, IL – June 4, 2015
The staff is not a team player at all. They basically look at CNAs as worthless. I was new to the floor and was so disrespected by my trainer. She complained nightly how much she hated this job and didn't know why she came back to it. The RN was with a patient and said she needed to go to the bathroom but she was a 2 person lift, so I asked if she would help...her reply was I have real work to do, wait for the other CNA. After this and countless FB to say whos admitted and RNs making fun of the patients I left and never will go there again.
Patient Access Representative-Revenue Cycle (Current Employee), Peoria, IL – January 26, 2015
OSF is an amazing organization to work for. Management treats employees with respect and assists with advancement within the organization. I really enjoy the patient interaction.OSF management and employees truly live by the mission.
Roomservice (Former Employee), Peoria Illinois – December 4, 2014
Live the mission was preached from day one but within our department was a Junior High clique mentality from the employees that had been there the longest. No support from management regarding the situation. Communication was poor and not all employees are treated the same.
Patient Access Rep (Current Employee), Peoria, IL – November 28, 2014
Pros: free coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hsa
Cons: sometimes so busy you don't even get breaks, management ungrateful, too corporate. stuck in a cubicle all day.
People used to rave over working for OSF. The only people who get any kind of recognition is RN's and Physician. Everything has to make their life easier even if it makes the low totem pole people work harder. Got a 14 cent raise after a year employment. This year we get a bonus but last year we didn't. You would think with all the charity they give out to the needy that they would actually pay their – more... employees and treat them with respect. All they do is complain about what isn't getting done instead of appreciating what does get done. High turnover, they expect employees to double workload for same pay but won't allow overtime. Extremely stressful. Constant insurance hike premiums. Tons of corporate issues, low employee morale. Everything goes when you go corporate. People used to love their jobs and now they can't stand them. Sad to see such a great hospital and cause go down the tubes to men in suits. So it goes. You accrue a ton of sick time but cannot access it unless you use all PTO even with physician's letter. – less
Housekeeping (Former Employee), Peoria, Illinois – November 24, 2014
Pros: health benefits ( at fair cost)
Cons: everything else.
Housekeeping: You accumulate sick time and vacation. However, you are only granted vacation days that work for them and receive an occurrence for calling in sick. Low pay and you will only advance as far as your department's manager will allow. Not a team orientated atmosphere. Some employee's work hard and are honest while others are lazy and always bucking the system. These employees are not dealt with by management for fear of? Would only advise housekeeping as a last resort for employment at OSF..
This organization was a great place to work several years ago . A family feel. But due to the new model Functional transformation( Ministry )
Technician (Current Employee), Rockford, IL – October 10, 2014
Pros: co workers
Cons: communication . and management integrity
Many changes have taken place. Corporate takeover , employees have become numbers . Senior management is downgrading staff who have devoted there lives to this organization to serve patients and families and co workers . The morals of employees is decreasing quickly. Functional transformation is the new corporate model. Most employees are transitioning into a class called ministry which is located at corporate headquarters in Peoria,Il. It may be a good fit for temporary employment but I'm skeptical about a good career move.
Receptionist/ Office Assistant (Former Employee), Rockford, IL – July 31, 2013
It was a pleasure working at OSF alot of GREAT people to work with everyone worked good together as a team from the nurses to the office staff. Good Management always willing to help out if any problems incurred whether it be personal or Patient issues. Family oriented environment. They really care about their employees.
