    Pros

    Work From Home, Health Benefits

    Cons

    Management thinks agile means unorganized and fast paced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that fast does not equate to good. Developing quality can take a little longer but well worth it in the long run. Need to step back and really ensure we are doing everything right and not fast.

    Current Employee - IT Director in Peoria, AZ

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

    Pros

    They offered to pay moving expenses, but I had to wait forever and then had to sign a paper after the fact that if I did not complete a year of employment I would have to pay everything back? That should have been in the offer letter, not after the fact. A form of entrapment.

    Cons

    Things are SO different when you are in the courting stage than when you have signed on the dotted line. You are left alone to flounder around trying to figure things out for yourself. You will be asked why you didn't get certain tasks done when you had no idea they were due in the system. It is really smoke, mirrors and deceit. If you have an idea keep it to yourself because Sr. Leadership does not want to hear it. What a mistake I made. Lesson learned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real. Be fair. Be upfront. Remember you are here to serve the patients first, not yourselves. Be competitive with pay not stingy as you will get what you pay for in the longrun.

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

    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.

    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
