Step down trauma staff nurse (Former Employee), ICU – March 12, 2014
St. Joseph"s Hospital was a large teaching Hospital. I was given a very comprehensive Intensive Care Training which was very beneficial to my nursing career. I had many learning opportunities which advanced my nursing practice.
Great sense of team work and a warm caring place within my unit.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee), Syracuse, New York – March 12, 2014
Pros: team oriented, some great nurses
Cons: unit closure, did not follow through as far as offering me longevity and stability
I had mixed feelings working at St. Joe's because this is where my mother passed. The care on some units was amazing and on one particular unit was appalling. I had a great manager and coordinator and made some great friends.
Pros: co-workers will often bring in food for everyone.
Cons: advancement might take sometime
I did not only have fun while Interning at St. Joseph but my manager would also test me on my knowledge of IT so I wouldn't feel stuck doing the same routine. The benefits are great for IT, for people who are looking somewhere to start off and expand your knowledge. The people I worked with were not only fun but also hardworking. The only reason why – more... i rated it 4 stars is because of Advancement. St. Joseph Hospital is a small hospital so Advancement in the workplace could take sometime. – less

Pros: a lot of job opportunities
Cons: low pay in most positions comparable to hospitals elsewhere in the u.s.
it's an o.k. hospital, nothing to brag about. I'm sure there are a lot better ones elsewhere in this country. It's located in an economically blighted area, with a horrible climate and a high cost of living. small town, pop. of 20,000.
