    Pros

    Great mission to help community focus on health and well being. Strong organizational drive to volunteer in the community.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity to move up. Cronyism in play.not receptive to new ideas. "We have always done it this way" Is the answer to why dont we change or improveiour processes.

    Advice to Management

    Address convoluted and unesscesarily complicated workflows. Departments tend to work in silos.

    Mental Health Associate

    Former Employee - Mental Health Associate in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Allina Health

    Pros

    Really flexible schedule with a lot of time off. The staff at Abbott North Western were amazing and overall extremely professional.

    Cons

    As one would expect this job could be extremely stressful and at times dangerous. Their were a select handful of staff that caused more behavioral issues than they prevented. It was no secret who they were, but there was rarely any disciplinary actions taken to discourage them. The lack of a union for Mental Health associates also created many inequities between MHA's and the rest of the staff on the floors.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of staff who don't pull their own weight and create behaviors. Hire more staff and stop making people float to more dangerous units. If they don't feel comfortable their, they make it a more dangerous environment for everybody else up there.

    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.
