    I have been working at Banner Health full-time

    Pros

    The co-workers are great and there are many opportunities for education. Like most health care corporations, they emphasize customer satisfaction above all else, but I think that the management at my location still supports the staff.

    Cons

    The benefits are absolutely awful. I have never seen nurses be offered such poor options for coverage. If you live in the Phoenix area, you have many options for accessing healthcare. However, in other areas be prepared to travel or pay an arm and a leg for anything health related.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Plenty of opportunities for advancement. Company likes to promote from within.

    Cons

    Lower salaries than other industries. Benefits are not great, especially for a health care company.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries and benefits in order to keep top level employees. This is cheaper than finding and hiring new ones.

    I have been working at Banner Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable Benefits & lots of opportunity for transfer within pay grade.

    Cons

    No real chance for advancement by earning degrees. A "good old boys" network exists and you have to "know someone" to get upward movement. Lots of lip service about providing quality care and excellent customer service, while at the same time increasing work load and freezing wages. In areas of personnel shortage hiring is slow and sometimes withheld for months, all the while over working their staff and expecting the same outcomes with less quality supplies and heavier patient acuity.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is and staff according to acuity as you always say you do, which is rare. Support your people as the attempt to make a career at Banner. Focus on patient care ad less on making money, since the company was originally founded on Christian principles of helping others before yourself. Banner came from the Lutheran Healthcare Network and the Samaritan Health Care merge, both of whom were set up to deliver assistance where none was available. Be inclusive and not dictatorial when making changes and the results will be much more successful in retaining & nurturing engaged employees.
