    Pros

    great employees at our site, some really great supervisors, small town feel

    Cons

    politics from above create too much frustration, not compensated on ability-too many factors outside your departmental control affect compensation, too hard to get off work and don't know til just before month starts if you get vacation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward people for their effort, have fair measures of personal and departmental success

    Pros

    Decent job, the feeling you get when you help someone is something you cant buy. All the workers will do what they can to assist you

    Caregivers often want things fixed as soon as they call. Unorganized IT dept, not enough pay for job duties

    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.

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

    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

    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.
