    I have been working at Banner Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    My work makes me feel like I can make a difference and the group I work with is very inspiring and encourages me to look at things differently. I have been able to see all sides of healthcare and never have had an opportunity to get bored with my job.

    Cons

    Healthcare is a challenging environment with all the changes and really no understanding on where it is headed makes it stressful at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Even though Banner is a large organization with several employees you still feel welcomed and a part of this healthcare family right away. For the most part the growth of this company has created a positive impact on the health and well-being of the community it serves. This company has great values and a strong foundation in which any nurse can grow both personally and professionally and advance their nursing practice.

    Cons

    With the increasing acuity and higher census, patients are becoming more and more difficult to take care of. The turnover rates as a whole are increasing due to nurses getting overworked, underappreciated and burnt out. There is a also large push for higher education, yet the compensation for tuition is minimal and often difficult to obtain.

    I have been working at Banner Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have the best benefits package (PTO, health, 401k) of any healthcare company that I have worked with in the past 20 years.
    Banner is very large so there are many opportunities for advancement.
    Banner has a VERY strong telecommute program.

    Cons

    Very little room for salary negotiation. - I was only able to successfully negotiate a higher salary on one instance (my initial hire). Since then I have had 4 promotions without successfully negotiating a higher salary.

    Pros

    Great opportunities, encouragement to move up, plenty of recognition. awesome mission statement: "We exist to make a difference in people's lives through excellent patient care."

    Cons

    At least for me, lack of support from management.
    But this is the thing, Banner Health wants to be a leader in healthcare by 2020, but to do this, they need to continually change things. Every quarter there are changes, and it can range from small to big. you have to stay adaptable to work for banner. Good for them, but i can see it being frustrating for older nurses set in their ways. maybe that's their plan? hmm...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more support please. that's all i want.

    Pros

    Help further education,help to keep a safe environment, help to find a suitable placement based on your experiences. Peasant environment to work in.

    Cons

    Unable to find a quick and permanent position, I would have like to continue flowing from job to job. This experience didn't provide too much of difference of improving my life style, or persona growth with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more hope and faith with people like me.
