    Pros

    Great opportunity to gain experience in the day-to-day hustle within a healthcare environment. The people are great (well, most of them) and the company is okay. The system used to manage patient care is amazing and Banner will always be on top of patient excellence.

    Cons

    Company is growing to fast and employees are disposable. Banner feels they can get whom ever they want and does not value their employees as they should. The pay is not competitive nor is it fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on employee turn-over. Thats all!

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. My direct supervisor is great. I do like the job that I do. And the people I work with.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are not what Banner claims to be. They claim they are "competitive" but are not. And because they are a huge corporation, the feeling is that if you don't like it here, feel free to leave. There is no loyalty.

    2015 changed their evaluation scale for a merit increase (if any). It is pretty much impossible to exceed expectations. Even if you have a great work ethic and are involved in committees. You will only meet the same level as someone who does nothing extra. So there really is no incentive to do anything extra or work any harder than you have to.

    Sr. Leadership only cares about money. Nothing else. No matter how many efforts are made by them to prove that patient care and employee satisfaction are important, they aren't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If saving money is so important to Banner, they should focus more on some of the great employees that they already have. Take care of them, and you will have less turnover, better patient care, and in turn might actually save money in the long run.

    I have been working at Banner Health

    Pros

    The floor staff that I work with are excellent

    Cons

    Banner continues to say over and over that their pay and compensation are competitive when the reality is that it is not. There is no benefit for staying with the company, they do not reward loyalty. An employee can leave, come back 2 years later and be hired at a significant increase in pay from when they left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop buying hospitals and pay your employees the going rate.

    Pros

    Banner is a large, stable healthcare system. As such, they offer great educational opportunities and provide great patient care.

    Cons

    New evaluation system discourages managers from recognizing top performers. Directors in various departments have been instructed that they cannot give employees greater than "meets expectations" on annual evaluations. One of the Colorado facilities recently won Healthgrades Top 50 Hospitals award, which ranks it in the top 1% of the country. Yet, the employees who helped accomplish this are apparently not exceeding expectations in any way. And the bonuses have been discontinued. It's all about the profit and everyone is expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the employees' efforts and recognize the hard work that they do when it's evaluation time. Even a rating of exceeds expectations doesn't give anyone a high enough raise to keep up with the cost of living.

    Pros

    People (Nurses) that really care about the patients and how things are recorded appropriately.

    Cons

    Sr. Management. Many areas of Banner people are jumping ship. Nursing, Coding, IT, RAD ONC, and with good reason. If Sr. Management goofs up, don't think they will take the blame or get the ax, it will be someone else. The majority of Sr. Management need to retire. They need to stop growing so quickly and pay attention before everything gets more out of control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above and hopefully take it to heart.
