    Pros

    Good benefits, great location, good coworkers.

    Cons

    Upper and middle management plays games and uses tricky tactics. Health system dismisses employees for health reasons. While employed here a co-worker lost their job for running out of FMLA-they had cancer. Another in that department had major surgeries, they got rid of that employee too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate "bully" directors. Hold management accountable. Management over the financial department is in need of desperate review.

    Pros

    Stable company. Great, compassionate and caring Senior Management team. Company overall is great. IT department is where the issues are.

    Cons

    Nowhere to go in IT. No growth or advancement opportunities. Pay is inferior. IT not well respected in the organization. IT leadership very stifling and does not show appreciation. Do not feel valued. Continued education is virtually nonexistent. No standards or policies, every request is handled on a case by case basis. IT has good old boys club mentality. Much favoritism even with filling open positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly evaluate IT leadership, hold accountable. Expect same level of professionalism, care, compassion, EXCEL values and team work out of IT leader the same as other department leaders.

    GRMC -a great place to heal.

    Current Employee - Certified Nurse Assistant in West Burlington, IA

    I have been working at Great River Health Systems

    Pros

    GRMC is a state of the art facility. We have excellant physicians. The building is only 8 years old. We have been showcased for our stroke and heart attack programs. We have a new Heart and Vascular unit. Our in-patient and out patient rehab units are top notch.

    Cons

    The Matrix for staffing the units is all wrong. Long term CNA's need to be advanced in pay like everyone else instead of capped out because of their senority. 2-3 % raise a year is not much when there are new RN's that make 30 plus dollars an hour. The corporation needs to stand behind there employee when they need financial help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office and work on the floor to remember what it's like
