    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern in Hoffman Estates, IL

    I worked at Alexian Brothers Medical Center as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very supportive co-workers. Everyone was competent at their jobs and cared about the patients. Had good, newer technology machines that are not cheap.

    Cons

    Cost cutting after recent merger/buy-out had negative effect on moral. Hours were reduced to save money. Some people were let go without much notice. Understandable, but still had everyone nervous about their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember it's about more than the bottom line.

    I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to get more hours

    Cons

    The team was horrible and nasty. They all gained up on new people and bragged about getting them fired. Also the entry rate of pay is 11$$. Which is less than what other positions make. The transporter makes more than PCTs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont show favorites towards people.

    Follow co-workers and employees are hard working people who truly do care about what they do at ABMC

    Cons

    Micro Management, Manager does not give positive feedback -you are approached only with errors or negative feedback.

    Please consider that your staff are people and most are welling to go beyond the "call of duty"

    Pros

    They have a very strong employee wellness program and employee satisfaction is very important to the organization.

    Cons

    As the merger with Ascension and other partnerships with area hospitals has taken place, there are more layers when when requiring services and help from the IT department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant changes that are taking place with the organization are very challenging for all.

    Pros

    The doctors that came were amazing!

    Cons

    Just cause a person asked for pain meds doesn't make them a junkie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Also not high school playing favorites is inappropriate.

    I worked at Alexian Brothers Medical Center as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Team leaders were very flexible. If hired as a resource employee, benefits are not offered. However, opportunities for being hired part time or full time are available, then benefits are offered. Since this is a hospital, there are no holidays off, but holiday pay is given to make up for it.

    Cons

    Working in a hospital. Always open, never closes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    The co-workers are amazing. Great people with hard work ethic.

    Cons

    Horrible pay
    No appreciation
    Short staffed
    Tons of work to do with no help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees, not just nurses. Look at your overturn rates. Maybe you'd save money if you realized how many people are leaving.
