    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.

    Leadership, contributing to different areas in the company and not being able to access or use of funds.

    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.

    Pros

    Self scheduling, great medical/dental benefits. Management is approachable. Company is very visionary and progressive and there are opportunuities for growth/advancement.

    Cons

    A very strong corporate mentality, especially with tardiness( clock in 6 minutes late and you're considered tardy.) There are no rewards/incentives for how hard you work, only keeping your errors with charting and administering medications down. Clinical ladder very difficult to access-very certification focused depending on your area of work.
