    Aurora Healthcare is average. If you're a nurse, it's a good place to work. For a business function, it's slow moving

    Feeling good about helping people live well. It promotes well being among it's employees and healthy living

    Cons

    non-profit, slow moving, not a lot of career ladder growth; pay is low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay for performance , look at being more flexible with work/life balance, especially in corporate business jobs where there is no need to be 24/7 like a hospital role might be

    Pros

    I really enjoy helping people and trying to put a smile on their face. Plenty of opportunity here

    Cons

    Programs rolled out that were under developed, systems continually changing, very little training, very political atmosphere,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To much red tape. no one appears to be accountable and an 80% efficiency is not a good score. There is favoritism and a lot of pretending to know what you don't know.

    I worked at Aurora Health Care

    Pros

    Large hospital system gives a chance for transferring around.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is highly robotic and eerily resembles a cult. Don't expect to get appreciated or promoted based on your skills, only on your ability to feed the right egos. Worked at several different sites within a 12 year span and all the same. Company operates like a cult where any complaints, feedback or questioning of leadership will only get shoved under the rug and person will be punished, despite anti-retaliation policies. Do not drink the Kool-Aid!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better management. Most of the management are over 50 hags that are territorial and threatened by any ambitious employee. Very difficult to transfer around. They don't care about their employees because they are busy expanding so rapidly. If they fall short, they will just lay off a couple hundred people. The business strategy is seriously lacking. Focusing on patient care is great, but at the end of the day, it is still a business and Aurora would never operate at a loss, so they need leaders that understand Business, not just nurses and doctors at the top. No room for personal or professional growth. Policies for work rules are ambiguous and changed when necessary to suit their needs. HR will always side with the managers because it is at their discretion or your word against their. Work-life balance is a joke.

    HORRIBLE management. Teamwork is emphasized but not practiced. Would be a better place if it weren't for the management.

    Pros

    All the people that you meet. The doctors IN the Aurora system are amazing people (majority of the doctors that is). Some of the people you meet are so amazing and insightful. Just full of knowledge.

    Cons

    Management, management, management. It looks like its a repetitive occurrence with the reviews. The management is just lacking in skills, support, and pride in their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STAND UP for what is right. Take accountability and lead by example. It is better to with someone than for them. It is more productive to have employees who love their jobs and hate them.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for research and innovation, great amounts of data available, actively growing research department, wonderful collaborations for research, evaluation, and community engagement

    Cons

    Absolutely terrible benefits, health care organization with horrible health insurance, barely any time off, uses a system of PTO (paid time off) for requesting vacation time but this accrual of time includes sick time too, work very long hours, weeks of 60, 70, and 80 hrs of work not unusual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize valuable workers and make sure to provide incentives that keep those workers encouraged, excited and dedicated.
