    Current Employee - Nursing in Medford, OR

    Pros

    It is one of few options in the area. That said benefits are good, but the bar is low. Staff shortages are a common problem. If you like working long hours with out a lot of support staff this is your place.

    Cons

    Productivity is of the utmost concern for managers, so much so that patient care is compromised. Managers are hired because of who they know and how well they get along with administrators. The administrators are really out of touch with the employee in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with employee relation skills and education.

    Current Employee - Ultrasound Technologist in Ashland, OR

    Pros

    I have felt supported by administration and feel I am paid well. The hospital is set in a small community and has a "hometown" feel. I like the fact I have time to spend with patients and concentrate on their physical needs as well as have time to get to chat on a personal level.

    Cons

    We don't have very many specialists that refer to the hospital so we are limited in the type of exams we perform in the radiology dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be active in recruiting and offering services and opportunities to new doctors and strive to maintain our "homey" feel as we grow larger. Patients love the personal touch.

    Pros

    Seem to pay decent wages and benefits

    Cons

    Applied for positions well qualified for, but just receive the denial email. I have an interview at Providence-they are a better Hospital anyway

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to HR: Screen your prospective employees! I know RN's who have given up applying via your ridiculous system!

    Current Employee - On Call Service in Medford, OR

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, if your at least a part time worker, plus employee friendly work place, room for advancement.

    Cons

    Not enough hours when your on on call status, no benefits sure the pays okay, but you don't get enough hours to make it count.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How long will they keep a person at "on call" status level? is it worth staying on to get to part time status and then full time. please post something if you can. because i'm not sure How long I can make it with so few hours.

    Pros

    It's interesting.You never stop learning.Each day is a new day at Asante.

    Cons

    It's demanding on the body. In my job it's alot of lifting and walking but worth the love I can share with patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your one of the higher ups dont tell other employee that you didn't do good in college.That scares us to know that your in charge of others.And always remember that it takes all employees, from housekeeping to doctors to make a hospital work. Just think about the little guy please.

    Former Employee - Physician Assistant in Grants Pass, OR

    Pros

    Good benefits. Southern Oregon is nice if you like QUIET and the outdoors. Coming from the San Francisco area however, it was a bit of a culture shock.

    Cons

    I was hired as an Emergency Department Physician Assistant. During my interview I was told I would get main ED time with high acuity patients.
    Upon my arrival, I was moved into an "Express Care" area that was on the other side of the hospital. Low acuity and boring. In addition, any tweeks I tried to implement to improve throughput was regarded as insubordination and "rocking the boat." No innovation was encouraged and both the ER manager and ER director created an environment of "My way, or the highway!" Every question was considered a complaint, and every suggestion was received as a threat to their authority and, "You haven't been here long enough to contribute." Needless to say, I was shown the highway after only two months.
    I would never recommend this place to a fellow mid-level, simply because of the piss-poor management and the slew of broken promises they make to get you in the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your subordinates are tools for you, not weapons against you. Every idea should be explored and innovation and outside-the-box thinking should be encouraged. Also, don't make promises to potential employees you have no intention of keeping. If you are an ER Physician Assistant, avoid this place like the plague. At least until they change management. The staff was great! A+++

    Pros

    Leading institution in this local

    Cons

    unfairness of advancement and lack of information given in a form that is acceptable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around and talk to those that have been here for a considerable time and get their
    advice, and get exit interviews on good key employees and find out why they are leaving.
