    Pros

    Working with the dying patients in a team environment is satisfying, especially when the patient expresses gratitude for the care they receive in a respectful atmosphere.

    Cons

    Communication is top down without input requested or received into the decision making process. Money is more of a focus than quality patient care at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage your employees to engage in the decision making process and then help them to take ownership of change as a positive experience, rather than threatening them with lay off if performance or compliance with new rules fall below standard.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Banner Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I went into this experience with a positive attitude and came out beaten down with a broken spirit. This company is very slipshod and shady. Some of the billing practices have been in the papers here in AZ.

    Cons

    They will do whatever it takes to make money. Money is their main focus, not the patients as it should be. Changing diagnoses to get paid is not appropriate. My personal conviction and integrity would not allow me to stay here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to the patients. They need the healthcare and caring people to provide it. We were always short staffed and pushed to the limit. Unappreciated and kicked when we were down, hated to leave the patients but could not give them the attention they needed and deserved based on staffing and management demands.

    Pros

    Large company which includes many great people. Pay is under the market, but it is a job.

    Cons

    Most of the highest positions are not posted, or only posted after they've chosen who will be getting it. They tend to only hire people into these positions from the same small circle of yes men/women. There are then no new ideas, just the same baby boomers congratulating one another on their successes. In this way, no one will question their processes or want to change things, and will keep telling each other that they're doing a great job. Reality is that they will continue to be only ever be a hospital company, with its only strengths being the ability to foster fear and an immense lack of conscience towards its employees and patients. If only the Board knew what was really going on, I can't imagine they'd keep this management team in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stroking your egos and pay attention to what is going on around you. The world has shifted but you haven't. You are the undressed emporer, and everyone knows but you.

    Pros

    good benefits. The CEO makes his rounds. the training is great but the company's values need help

    Cons

    did not like working here as a cna. nurses are rude and so are patients. Nurses expect you to do all the work and are not willing to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't screw over the cnas
