    I worked at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flex hours
    Big desks
    Good benefits
    Employees are friendly and cafeteria food is pretty good!

    Cons

    Management are fake, it's all about favoritism, too much gossip even management gossips and are so rude. Your own team throws people under the boss. Management is sneaky and unprofessional. They don't acknowledge you at all especially when you leave the company. They pick and choose who they want to promote. If they don't like you they will find a way to get rid of you. Management makes everything difficult.

    Pros

    The residents were the only good thing left.

    Cons

    This use to be a good place years ago...not anymore. Not enough staff to properly care for the residents and management is awful. There is a reason they have had around 30 nurses and cna's quit or be fired over the past year and a half. Management will throw their employees under the bus to protect themselves. They may seem nice at first and say they are a Christian organization...but from years of experience with them, their new management is anything but Christian. If you are considering working as a cna or nurse at Alexian of Signal Mountain, I would highly recommend getting in touch with some of their previous nurses or cna's and talking with them first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within your own team and you will find the real cause of the problems there. I truly wish the brothers would come in and talk with the employees or ex-employees, instead of the higher-ups. Then maybe they would see where the real problems are.

    I love working for this company. As long as your nurses know you are here for the residents, you will love it!

    they need help so bad, they are hiring mostly trash

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the young ghetto girls who are no good to the residents. we are here for them, not to just stay full of staff

    Pros

    At least the paychecks don't bounce. I also like working with some of the people who are dedicated and enjoyable. The CEO of the hospital in Elk Grove is a good person and good leader.

    Cons

    Poor and nonexistent leadership, leadership lies to employees, the pay doesn't match the pay at other hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of senior leaders and bring in some people who will actually do what they say instead of protecting their jobs.

    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time

    Pros

    It is an organization that is focused on healthcare and the patients that come through their doors. It is an organization of dedicated individuals that are bright, educated, and committed to their work. You have the ability to own your work and make an impact.

    Cons

    In the administrative side of operations, opportunities for advancement are limited to non-existent. Positions lower than director level can expect little fringe benefits. Due to focus on cost savings, salaried positions will see heavy workloads and average to excessive amounts of overtime. The merger into Ascension Health poses issues of policies and software that are lagging and add to the issues with workload.
