    Pros

    The people I work with make all the difference in pleasure & success of our unit. Flexible scheduling. Excellent benefits. Earn paid time off. My management team is awesome.

    Cons

    You need to be flexible with work assignments. 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4 depending on acuity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clinical Managers should never be "in the count" to take patients. CM are there for us helping the patients, to support us. They have enough CM work to do, don't give them patient assignments. Banner burnsout CM by making them do their normal CM job & take patient assignments.

    Pros

    Quality of the people - fair pay and benefits. Good communication with employees and opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Some lack of standardization between departments - which can be a good or bad thing. Also it can be beauracratic and veeeery slow moving.

    Former Employee - Receiver in Chandler, AZ

    I worked at Banner Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I was there the benefits were pretty good. At first I loved my job then....

    Cons

    Started out doing mail they kept adding more and more work to my plate so much so that I changed jobs. They tend to fire/downsize people and never hire a replacement forcing the remaining personnel to do the job of those that have left and their own jobs as well.

    Started out in 2007 they gave a yearly raise of 5% when I quit in 2012 their standards were much higher you had to give 150% to receive a 3% max raise!

    I have friends that still work there and the cost of insurance has gone up so high they can not afford it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop backstabbing the employees. Tell Peter Fine to stop giving himself a 1 million dollar raise and cutting back on raises for the employees.

    Former Employee - ED Staff RN in Mesa, AZ
    Former Employee - ED Staff RN in Mesa, AZ

    I worked at Banner Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Great educational opportunities! Staff comradery! I felt like I made a difference in the lives of those I cared for nearly every day.

    Cons

    Definate corporate feel. You are not a name, but rather an employee number. In winter months the nurse to patient ratio was unacceptable in the sub-acute areas (which many times also contained those awaiting beds in the acute zones!) most shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. They are the ones who have to figure out how to make changes work which you implement with little to no input from the bedside nurse.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Banner Health full-time

    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to have a leader that knows how to lead well, this is a decent company for employees. If you are a clinician, you will have access to highly innovative, evidenced-based protocols.

    Cons

    Salary is at or below average. PTO continually decreases, even mid-year. Hierarchy rules interactions, even when it deters progress. Favoritism runs rapid across many of the teams and departments, which leads to highly inconsistent interactions, coaching, performance reviews, and overall working environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what is preached related to coaching, performance, and innovation across the board. Realize that people are your best asset and you will fall behind the 2020 vision if you don't start respecting diversity of thought and innovate people practices.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at Banner Health full-time

    Pros

    I worked in a great team, was relatively well paid and was left to do my work without too much pressure from above. Great career enhancement opportunities once allowed into the world of management (I saw this happen quite a bit).

    Cons

    No chance to switch from admin to management, even with a degree. Although one's career was tagged as "your journey", there were no travel agents available to help find the way.
