Too bad they hired Sodexo

Chef (Former Employee)
Elk Grove, IL

I worked at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent place and mostly great employees

ConsA few employees were more interested in saving face than telling the truth.

Advice to Senior ManagementSodexo and a few of your older truth deceptive employees are the reasons I cut my throat by retiring about 4 years too early.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

My years with this employer gave me the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than my immediate surroundings.

Surgical Patient Representative (Former Employee)
Elk Grove Village, IL

I worked at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe employees strive to live and work the mission that the Alexian Brothers have maintained throughout a 400 year period. The patient and family is always at the center of the concern for the staff. This extends between employees for the most part as well and made working there like truly being part of another family.

ConsAs in everything, changes come. Current management is not always aware of what it's predecessors have tried and deemed inadequate or unworkable. Inevitably, temporary departmental chaos ensues as the adjustments are worked through.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more tho your employees, they are your front-lines in successful patient care.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I love being a nurse and the feeling of family among staff.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center

ProsLongevity of staff members creates a family feeling.
Room for professional growth.
Nurse education is available and compensation for tuition is fair.

ConsStaffing ratios sometimes too high for quality care. Health insurance benefits are expensive and too time-consuming to get authorizations for any testing. Few health insurance options available.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your staff with better patient to RN ratios to get better patient satisfaction as well as nurse retention. Offer more incentives for achieving certifications. Look into providing better health care for your employees and their families.

Has been great in past, but recently has gone bad with overload for nursing staff, They lost their values .

PCT (Current Employee)
Elk Grove Village, IL

I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood coworkers who lately are more , and more unhappy and distanced because of work overload which is becoming bigger and bigger, who knows where will end.

ConsMisery pay for hard and compassionate work, they don't appreciate good workers any more. Comes from new corporate who want others to make just money for them, so they can have great bonuses and rest are on minimum pay. They cut PTO hours in half. We get less and less benefits and less and less pay, and more and more patients to take care of.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to really start to care more about patients and people who work for you. They need money and benefits to raise their families,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
