    I have been working at Elliot Health System full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of perks, as an employee you can get discounts at retailers in the community, you can also buy what ever the Elliot buys, such as diapers and medical supplies even food that that the kitchen purchases.

    Cons

    The medical benefits could be better. Your part of such a large system sometimes your just a number instead if an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible. There are a few managers that need to smile more:)

    Pros

    Excellent consultant physicians. Culture is positive and employee driven. Leadership is for the most part ethical and hard working. Good recruiting at all staff levels.

    Cons

    Schedule is chaotic at times. Promotions can be difficult for mid level staff and nurses with quality work history. Training through human resources is generally top notch with very few exceptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pool of hospitalists.

    I worked at Elliot Health System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    In general, staff is very pleasant

    Cons

    Management needs a serious overhaul. HR is certainly not looking out for employees. I think the institution is financially in distress. They've eliminated or reduced most benefits to the point where they are no longer competitive, eliminated positions, reduced salary increased,...and seem to be seriously cash-strapped. Many departments suffer from a lack of capital improvements. Old equipment/technology is everywhere. They haven't kept up...at the main hospital at least, but one would never guess that based on the propaganda they send out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff has been paying the price for your ill-timed decisions for too long. While employee compensation has been stagnant, executive compensation has risen considerably. Leading by example would be a nice change!

    I worked at Elliot Health System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked for the Elliot for nearly 13 years. The people I worked with on a day to day basis were some of the best people I've ever worked with and became friends with a few of them. I also enjoyed the patients that I worked with as a patient services registrar.

    Cons

    Sometimes ideas or suggestions were not always welcome. A few ideas I did have got used. However some ideas as to how to improve the structure of how to make things more efficient often fell on deaf ears, as management stuck to how they wanted things done and problems remained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was happy in my time at the Elliot. However like most things in corporate America, loyalty and how well a person does their job sometimes don't matter. It is no wonder why there is distrust between the employer and the employees.

    I worked at Elliot Health System

    Pros

    The people who work at there are great. The clinical people are all top notch. They have nice facilities and it is a safe place to work.

    Cons

    The officers and upper level management are out of touch. They spend all their time in meetings and working with each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, instead of hiring managers from the outside. Learn some humility.

    Pros

    Elliot Hospitals is located in a wonderful state! The hospital has a very good cafeteria and parking issues seem to have been alleviated.

    Cons

    Very average employer with benefits that annually deteriorate. Unless you are fortunate enough to be in high-demand, your compensation will stagnate. Management does not seem very concerned about employees in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The general consensus amongst staff seems to be that the employer is very busy spending money on expanding while forgetting who makes the institution a success.

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind at the moment.... The new facilities do look nice.

    Cons

    We had relatively mediocre benefits before, but they are no longer competitive. They spent too much on various expansion projects right when the recession started and now employees are paying the price with layoffs, reduced benefits, elimination of the 403b employer match,... They even went so far as to reduce time off accrual for employees with longevity a couple of years ago! Many employees lost one week of vacation time per year.

    You fail!

    Pros

    Free parking. Nice and clean facilities.

    Cons

    The benefits are mediocre at best. Management keeps telling employees how great they are via newsletters, but that's where it ends. Poor communication from the top. All efforts are spent on expanding and very little is spent on staff retention. They even reduced the accrual rates for vacation time for a lot of their long-serving staff. What a slap in the face! The board of directors has no employee and/pr physician representative on the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
