    I have been working at Adventist Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is great! We get out at 3:30 on Fridays and work is so easy.

    Cons

    Its so boring and people seam so fake like if they are in a totally different bubble. An Adventist Bubble. Its who you know I guess. No real chance of growth and leadership plays favorites. Not using staff to their potential because the older execs are set in their ways and things move like molasses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your offices and talk to the common cubicle. Consider to grow your internal employees. Don't give all to the hospitals we want to be happy too, give some to corporate employees also. We have 1970's style cubicles. Look in being more progressive. Brand awareness goes a long long way. Listen to your consumer not just what your internal staff think, they are not your target audience. Keep God first.

    Be more open and communicative of your business plan. Communicate with employees, value longevity and productivity.

    I have been working at Adventist Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Social, flexible, nice co-workers, excellent pay and benefits, excellent ergonomics, excellent equipment.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional corporate culture, nepotism, gossip, conservative, not transparent. Prefer to hire family and church members as much as possible. Promoting unqualified individuals because they are Adventist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is too social, not enough people actually working. Look outside the box, you have talented employees who are not Adventist.

    Pros

    Patient care is excellent. Most staff on the floor are excellent.

    Cons

    Leadership structure is s/w stifling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of losing sight of the big picture. Minor issues can overshadow more important issues if feedback is not encouraged among the workers on the floor.

    I have been working at Adventist Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like the mission, I wish there was more in the training arena, for those of us who have to go out and repair the newer systems, they can be challenging. I like the time off system we have, it fits well. And the pay package is goose also, I'm really happy with the clinic leadership they know what they are doing, kudos to them. Also the clinic managers are the best ,they are easy to work with on problem solving, understanding when they have to wait sometimes.

    Cons

    Being the only person in my department , it gets a little difficult to get to everything I would like to in a day. Having about 30 different clinics to take care of can be challenging, and when it comes to time off, well lets just say that its better if I don't take time off , cause when I get back I'm buried . other than that its great.. keeping up with the new P.M. system is making my hair grayer. A helper would be great.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concerned where we are going with this new contracted facilities management co. I believe in this work and mission and only want what's best for the Hosp. system .
       Tom Russell is an awesome leader, thank you for your service...

    Pros

    Great, friendly and supportive atmosphere. Flexible with times and willing to work with employees. As long as your time management skills are good you will do very well.

    Cons

    Obviously there's always corporate and billing demands. Quotas to be met, productivity to be accomplished. This can make the job stressful.

    Pros

    There are a lot of good and passionate people working for Adventist Health. The faith based culture is prominent and meaningful to many. Nice working environment overall

    Cons

    Senior leadership is very poor, and primarily reserved for members of the 7th Day Adventist Church, so advancement opportunities if you are not Adventist are virtually impossible. Many of the Senior Leaders are children of other Senior Leaders from sister hospitals and are not qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Leadership is completely out of touch with operational realities. They continuously espouse that their vision is to be the best place to receive care, best place to practice medicine, and best place to work but their actions do not support this. This slogan is a joke - Adventist Health quality is poor overall.
