I worked at Banner Health full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Patient care results are great, IT systems are solid, opportunities for advancement and movement within the company.

Cons

We used to be about doing the right thing for patients. That's what drove the company. No more. Since mid-2012, it's been about "optimization" without any actual optimization of broken processes and removal of red tape in this large corp. It has gotten worse overall and the optimization was more about cutting resources, service lines and staff in order to save big $$$ and move to an accountable care org (good idea); but in the process top leadership has FORGOTTEN what got Banner the good clinical reputation it had in the first place...front line staff providing excellent care based upon sound clinical practice. We are all no replaceable parts that are looked at as an expense instead of an asset.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember how you got to prominence in the industry. Remember that the front line staff are the heart and soul of the organization.

    Pros

    Banner Health overall is a great place to work for. They have great Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits. Management is very approachable. I think highly of my manager in particular. Since it is such a large company, your job feels secure and there is always room to move up the career ladder.

    Cons

    Banner Health has a strong corporate mentality. If you are one minute late (six minutes past the clock-in time) you are considered tardy. I have seen quite a few people fired for being tardy too many times. You are also not rewarded for how hard you work, only that you keep your errors low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for a more human way of deciding attendance. Figure errors not only per employee, but per number of tests performed. That way management will know which employees are getting the most work done and can really see who is doing the lowest percent of errors.

    I worked at Banner Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company, decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Banner in Fairbanks is toxic.
    The administration of the Fairbanks hospital, managed by Banner is a "good old boy" network that requires nurses to violate HIPAA laws and terminates those who object to their micromanagement of clinical departments. The administrative team repeatedly places "scapegoat" directors into departments that are failing financially secondary to administrative incompetence and then they fire or demote them...with the blessings of Banner AZ. Given that the Banner run hospital is the only hospital in the area, their treatment of staff is beyond heartless as they through professionals to the curb in an area where there are few healthcare jobs available. They cannot be trusted to treat the health professional equitably, they are treated based upon the emotions and personal opinions of the bad apples who have made their way into administration.
    The citizens of the community are NOT happy with Banner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the needs of the patients, the productive staff, and the needed health programs for your community than you do to the financial whining of Banner AZ. Their woes are NOT Fairbanks woes.
