    I feel that the company wants to treat employees well

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Urbana, IL

    ProsUpper management does try to set a high standard and it feels like they try to live up to it themselves. Very competitive pay for my discipline. Good benefits--seen better. Opportunity for continued training and advancement. Lots of communicatin both directions. Pay increases, rewards for meeting company goals, the take employee performance reviews seriously. Has the resources to be a steady place of employment

    ConsIt's corporate and a bit uptight and old fashioned. Change is constant. Big. There is a lot to know about the place and most of the time you only have a narrow view of the organization. Hard to get hired in some areas--apply online and you may never ever hear from HR. Simple things seem to be complicated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't focus so much on growing the business but focus on making sure you/your employees do the best job at the core functions. Make sure the pressure to grow doesn't mean you are pushing employees to their breaking points.

    Stable employment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Urbana, IL

    ProsGood local employer with employees who try to do well for our patients. Fair benefits.

    ConsLong hours, rare raises, high pressure and stress. More work than resources.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGroom your promising employees so you can promote from within. Add more to the benefit package to make up for the ones you stripped away over time.

    Its okay

    Software Support Engineer (Current Employee)
    Urbana, IL

    ProsLarge, professional, quality focused environment.

    ConsPoor communication between management and employees. Below average pay for non clinical staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is very difficult to find opportunities for growth or advancement within your current role. Many people I know in the organization have had to take other jobs just to get a promotion or raise when they return to Carle.

    A Toxic Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Urbana, IL

    ProsThe pay is adequate. Nice comraderie among staff.

    ConsStaff are "let go" with no notice and with little or no time to gather their belongings. Some are led out by a police escort and are told to have no further contact with other employees. There is a constant air of intimidation there because everybody is afraid that they will be the next to be fired. There is virtually no job security, even for people who have worked there for over 20 years. It took me and some of my coworkers a month or so to "recover" from the stress of working there. A very toxic, stressful, and intimidating environment for employees at every job level. I know it sounds nice to work at a hospital, but don't choose this one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave respect for your staff. Most of them are working so hard and have the patients' best interest in mind. Try to find a job at another hospital that has the best interest of its patients, staff, and management in mind, not just the "bottom line."

    Leadership not leading

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Urbana, IL

    ProsGood co-workers, cafeteria, and housekeeping and grounds staff. The place is kept clean.

    ConsManagement does not listen to staff or doctors. Over all, leadership is uncommunicative except to dictate orders. Staff are threatened with discipline for voicing their opinions and sometimes just to make sure you know who is the boss. Their answer to most things is to make the staff work harder and blame them when things don't go well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResign. Health care needs innovative leaders who can actually lead and they are not capable.
