    I worked at Alegent Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice, close-knit, IT family. I liked the people I worked with very much. The middle managers are flexible and easy to work for and my peers were always helpful. I actually miss working at Alegent Health.

    Cons

    They are outsourcing their IT to an India based company. Not very many advancement avenues and pay is somewhat low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing. It always comes back to quality, and outsourcing lacks what is needed to provide superior customer care.

    Pros

    The people you work with are nice.

    Cons

    If you want to work at a company that does not have a competitive salary or does not foster talent then this is the company for you. I write this being removed from the company for quite some time now, so I am not bitter. Alegent also offers some of the worst Health Care benefits I have come across, which is strange since they are a Health Care Organization.

    I have been working at Alegent Health

    Pros

    Lots of great doctors, nurses, technical staff. Very skilled and they care.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They trashed CUMC. Utterly incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to make some decisions. This organization's lifespan is going to be very short with the level of incompetence demonstrated at CUMC. Methodist is ramping up its operations and you are soon going to get the reckoning you deserve.

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

    Pros

    Family environment, flexible PTO, decent technology. Decent pay for nursing and direct care providers only. Easy access to local upper management depending on location.

    Cons

    Don't let them know you are in the military if you want to be hired or move up. Salaries are low and performance raises are averaged and regardless of your evaluation you will receive the same raise as consistently low performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the incentive program, implement programs to provide career development/progression for non-exempt employees. Implement a process to prevent hiring managers from discriminating against military National Guard and Reserve members. Create a Military liaison well versed in USERRA to address and solve disputes before they become a legal issue.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Awesome and supportive employees who want to do the right thing and put the patient first. Faith based culture.

    Cons

    Lots of change and strategic initiatives without a lot of focus. Recently taken over by a new company that will have Alegent more financially focused than it has been in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to put the patients first and reduce their amount of employee stress through transparent conversations.

    Pros

    Great patient mix and convenient locations.

    Cons

    Totally micromanage everything! Way too many "leads" and managers. No autonomy. Physicians are made to feel like incompetent children who need to be constantly supervised and scrutinized. Horrible morale since CHI took over. They outsourced IT to India! Toxic administration!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the leads and middle management. Treat doctors with respect and let them do their jobs. Get rid of CHI!
