    Allina has a strong corporate infrastructure with well-developed HR programs that benefit staff. The employer really cares about employee engagement and the patient experience. Great evidence-based safety programming.

    Pros

    Good managment support, team peers were helpful and easy to work with.

    Cons

    It does take a lot to get things processed through HR.

    Advice to Management

    If something happens with someone on a team that doesn't make the rest of the team comfortable, Changes need to be completed at a faster pace.

    Pros

    Great, innovative company to work for! Very competitive pay and benefits!

    Cons

    Some of the programs we use will not interface and that can make life a tad bit more difficult, but I don't think this is Allina's fault. We just work with so many outside providers and organizations that it is probably impossible to collaborate everything.

    Advice to Management

    I work in Customer Service for the best management team that Allina has! I have no advice, except keep up the good work!!!

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are comparable to other Hospitals. Wide variety of jobs available for bedside and nurses who prefer to work in an office setting.

    Cons

    There seems to be a trend where quality experienced staff are being terminated from bedside care and in the office setting.

    Advice to Management

    Cutting staff with experience hurts the organization, as the new staff coming in will not benefit from the knowledge and skill transfer which occurs when these groups work together.

    Pros

    Ok pay, ok benefits, should have paid holidays but don't for most non- union workers. Union workers have much better conditions and pay here and better support when management issues. Managers have much better situation. Conditions might be awesome here under good manager but opposite under other.

    Cons

    Poor that company excludes holidays and makes they come from PTO. Management receives better PTO and won't ever let staff take a day off. If you ask and they say no and you have to take it, even for family need/doctor etc they warn you could be written up/even fired. Limped because they denied time to go to doctor and knew I couldn't take it without approval. Manager said no and then I told her I cancelled it and she said really, are you sure. If she could allow me to go, why wouldn't she just do that? They didn't successfully reward good workers enough to make you want to stay on and deal with the bad workers who hurt department. Disengaged tenured workers bringing system down.

    Advice to Management

    Hold workers that don't do their job or bully others accountable. Hold management accountable for responses to problems.

    Pros

    Allina is a great company to work for. Lots of opportunity for advancement and movement within the company.

    Cons

    They have no room for explanations if you did something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the job of everyone that you manage. Know how it works and the ins and outs of the positions.
