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

Pros

Mission based founded on Benedictine values. Great views and some facilities are beautiful. Quality patient care. Opportunities for training and learning.

Cons

Scrambling to prepare for health care reform, managers have too much to do. Workforce has sense of entitlement and the many unions intimidate managers and can make managing employees a challenge. Moving away from Benedictine roots.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

settle down, set example for employees.

    I worked at Essentia Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Corporate Culture, average benefits, good company for such a rural area.

    Cons

    Growing too fast and no leadership to grow effectively. Lots of midlevel manager disputes. I feel sorry for the worker bees.I think it will work itself out but at a cost of some really talented employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication-take suggestions from the talent you hired. Some of them do know what they are talking about. Do what you say you are going to do.

    I worked at Essentia Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy, lots of downtime, great food, lots of walking space

    Cons

    HR's system is designed for nurses and doctors, not IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why so much down time? Why don't you listen to our ideas?
