    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Other employees are mission focused
    People who work here seem happy with their jobs
    Great benefits that cover my families needs
    They still give raises when I know other employers have stopped giving raises

    Cons

    Don't like that housekeeping was outsourced. Feels like we can't ask them to do anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating with all employees about the continuing changes that are going on. I appreciate the meetings that we have to talk about what is happening at Alexian

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington Heights, IL

    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.

    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent teamwork. Fast paced environment. You get to do your job. Supportive managers. Good pay especially with experience.

    Cons

    Work / home balance could be better. Recently merged with Ascencion Health. Emphasis seems to be more on the bottom line now. New administration is not as attuned to the front line employees as the old administration was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have an excellent group of employees who are in the health care field for the right reasons. Please listen to their ideas and suggestions for improvements.
