    I worked at Aurora Health Care

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Since I was new to the medical field, this job gave me the opportunity to learn and advance in my medical career.

    Cons

    Lack of proper training especailly for people who are not medically trained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because we constantly had to page on call doctors using the computer, proper technical training was not provided. Also proper resources were never provided to new Customer Service Reps during training. You had to figure it out on your own.

    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.

    Pros

    Awards like the Aurora Star, and having Caregiver appreciation events, and Service Year Anniversary events, Perk Spot-Discounts for Employees,

    Cons

    Aurora is great if you can actually get in the organization. With only a high school diploma, finding it hard to move up the corporate ladder- and no input from interviews or HR as to why you were not chosen.

    Pros

    You gain immense experience. I loved my co-workers and how much they taught me! When going to other hospitals, you definitely notice a difference from an Aurora Hospital, to a non-Aurora hospital! It is definitely more hospitality driven!

    Cons

    It seemed that things changed a lot, such as how little tasks were completed, and there was a lot of drama...again depending on what area you worked in. Word got around!

    Pros

    Benefits were okay for an healthcare facility.

    Cons

    Not a healthy (Zion Clinic) to work. Old Doctors and old staff with old ways and are not subject to change. Office is total mess. Old outdated papers still on staff desk. Staff is not up to date with Kenosha site. They do not follow policy and procedures of Aurora. Unqualified medical staff MA, which are making medical decisions that the RN and MD should be making. Very poor facility with a non working management who is qualified. This place really need headquarter to look over management. Pay rate is extremely below what PSR or CSR makes in other surrounding hospitals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance training needed with manager, lead, and supervisor at the Zion Clinic
