    I worked at Allina Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers, good benefits, decent pay, no experience necessary to get your foot in the door in many departments. Easy to get in if you know someone.

    Cons

    Constant schedule changes, high turnover, little training, outdated/broken equipment, difficult to transfer between departments due to training differences. Little opportunities for growth. Some employees were "grandfathered" in when Allina merged with other hospitals and do a lot less work, for a lot more pay with in the same department and their jobs are safe while the rest of us are worried about being layed off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update equipment. Stop talking about changes that are going to happen, and make them happen.
    Don't treat employees like they are disposable, it makes them feel unwanted and look for employment elsewhere.

    Pros

    Management really tries to put you where you will excel. People are nice, and there is a lot of flexibility. Good strategic management. Work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    The pay is a little less than industry standard, but the work-life balance is very good. The corporate office location is not ideal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look to the future as health care is constantly (and rapidly) changing.

    I have been working at Allina Health as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, decent pay, most coworkers are pleasant, understanding of competing priorities of pharmacy students

    Cons

    Hours can be late on school nights, sometimes feels like glorified tech work, pharmacists not that interested in teaching students

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture that the upper management would like does not necessarily trickle down to the lower-level employees.

    I have been working at Allina Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is very challenging and I'm surrounded by and get to work with some of the most intelligence and compassionate people I've ever met in my life. Evaluated based on outcomes and results (which is how it should be). Allina walks the talk when it comes to encouraging employees to be healthy and offers multiple programs and opportunities to do so.

    Cons

    More work here than can be addressed. Allina needs to continue to figure out how to prioritzie and say no to some things. Without a clinical background, I feel my career advancement opportunities are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with the changes going on within the organization
