    I worked at Vanguard Health Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay for nurses was very good.

    Cons

    This is a company that has a high rate of turn over. They do not believe in education and training of employees. The orientation is no more than showing people around and films. The management changes like a person changes their socks and so does all the other areas in their long- term care facility in Memphis, TN. I have never seen employees leave this company at such a rate. People even leave during orientation and don't come back. It is just terrible. This large turn over is terrible for continuity of patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training programs that will educate and train people to better perform their jobs. Listen to what the employees have to say and don't say you are going to make things better and not keep your word. Please stop trying to terrorize the employees by sending those indifferent people from Nashville to attend a few meetings, walking around, blaming and and trying to intimidate the hard working nurses and staff.

    It is all about the bottom line for Vanguard Health Systems

    Former Employee - Director Level in Berwyn, IL
    Former Employee - Director Level in Berwyn, IL

    I worked at Vanguard Health Systems as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company attempts to develop talent from within, deep company pockets help to support capital projects other health systems cannot afford. Competitive benefits/compensation for higher level employees. Takes feedback from employees seriously.

    Cons

    No loyalty - will end employment for the long-term employees without a second thought if saves money. To work there a management level employee needs to find a way to live with management behavior patterns that are troubling to one's conscience - an example is telling an employee their job was secure while at the same time planning to end their employment. Standard operating procedure is to make an employee so uncomfortable in their job they leave on their own, rather than respectfully sitting down to say this is not working out and offering severance. To avoid unemployment or accountability for their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront - the mission is quality healthcare and profit. Where medical education and residency training fits into this mission is highly questionable.

    I worked at Vanguard Health Systems

    Pros

    The only pro is that in today's economy you might have a job before they cut you

    Cons

    Vanguard Health Systems say that they believe and empower the employees but when it comes down to it all they care about is the bottom line. They come in and completely let the staff go to a point that a department is unoperable to give excellent service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not take a job with Vanguard Health Systems
