    I worked at Allegiance Health System full-time

    Pros

    The hospital staff honestly and genuinely cares about helping patients to heal and communicating with them in an open manner. These values make it a worthwhile experience.

    Cons

    So much mandated overtime, not enough staff, staff not very willing to help each other out and cover shifts which makes work-life balance very difficult, compensation is not enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of their patients

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Jackson, MI
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Jackson, MI

    I worked at Allegiance Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Personal growth was satisfactory, despite the lack of proper training. Not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    The department was very heavily micro-managed and nothing seemed to change as to the real problems we faced. We were commonly short-staffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show a bit more employee appreciation. The intranet shout-outs are great. Maybe a bit more from upper management. Also, have a bigger hand in the way things are run in the departments.

    I worked at Allegiance Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great at staying up-to-date with the latest medical technologies, team driven, strong staff communications, senior management updates staff regularly on changes and the direction the hospital is going, patient safety is top priority.

    Cons

    Staff in middle management positions are not trained well on how to manage their staff. Some are promoted to the positions because of who they know or are friends with. On a daily basis, managers would yell at their staff which creates a very disruptive environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take unannounced visits to various departments to see how middle management staff members interacts with their staff.

    I have been working at Allegiance Health System full-time

    Pros

    Good starting pay for a new RN, self scheduling and working every third weekend.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel like they own me, and they feel like that, too. Being on call until 2am and being called at exactly 2am to come in for 4 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some of the busy work, and streamline processes and paperwork into the computer system instead of the paper chart

    Overall a good experience

    I have been working at Allegiance Health System for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff are friendly, cafeteria has good food that is very reasonably priced, the gift shop is very nice.

    Cons

    As for much of healthcare these days, management is often looking for ways to save money. They will send staff home early or cut back hours to improve the budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By keeping departments running at a very tight employee to patient ratio, you are often putting patient's safety at risk. Patients are often left alone. It may be only a matter of time before a patient suffers harm due to this type of cost-saving measure.

    I have been working at Allegiance Health System full-time

    Pros

    Lots of friendly staff, good pay, staffing is handled well, management is responsive and engaged with empolyees.

    Cons

    Policies, charting, rules, etc are always changing. Relatively large organization so things seem hectic or unorganized but they are making the effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a difficult time for the healthcare industry, I think most employees are making their best effort to provide the best care they can. Realize we are not superhuman and safe care dissapears quickly with higher demands from patient loads or job duties.

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedules. My unit manager is responsive, but in an indirect way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better feeling for what floor nursing is... not what it used to be
