    Former Employee - Pharmacist

    I worked at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best part of the job is that pharmacists get lots of clinical practice. The benefits are good and health care is availableat a reasonable price.Compensation is at market rate and most years a bonus of $100 - 200 is provided.

    Cons

    In general, employees are gossipy; there are many cliques. Managers encourage employees to complain about each other. Lots of politics. Ther is rapid turn over which is even more so in the case of pharmacy technicians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your senior employees well so you won't have to pay so much for new employee training.

    I have been working at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The staff, peers, and quality physicians. A good place to work of you are not in a management position.

    Cons

    There is all new administration, and they are extremely inexperienced. It's shows through and through in regards to how the CEO and CNO treat people. They lead by fear and intimidation. The pay is low and of they want you gone, you are gone. There is little support and absolutely no mentoring. Management is spread thin and ineffective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generate enthusiasm and give praise
    We and not I.
    Coach and not demand.
    Give credit instead of taking credit.
    Active listening instead of pretending like it.
    The CEO asks questions to make you think he cares, but he doesn't listen to what you have to say.

    Pros

    Banner is taking over the healthcare industry so it's a good opportunity to transfer to different facilities.

    Cons

    They work you to the bone because they are "optomizing" which means cutting down on staff and equipment. Management is just worried about numbers and have forgotten that the employees are what make a good patient experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at how over worked and understaffed you are. Employees are jumping ship left and right for a reason.
