    Pros

    Independence, accountability, top management interest and oversight, own hours, everyone treated as professionals.

    Cons

    too much work and too few people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people to do some jobs based on workload as quantified. Be kinder on schedules given resource constraints.

    I worked at Hawaii Pacific Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and nice people. There is an understanding that there needs to be a work/life balance but you will often need to remind your managers about that.

    Cons

    The departments need reorganization. When an employee leaves, there is no system in place to cover that persons work and it normally get dropped on someone else. Also not a lot of upward movement available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More work-life balance.

    Pros

    Medical staff is very professional and great to work with. Centrally located near downtown Honolulu without the congestion of the downtown traffic and parking headaches.

    Cons

    Administrative leadership does not recognize nor respect professional quality and is more concerned about risk management and catering to third party payors and nursing unions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower all of your physicians, not just the CMO

    Former Contractor - Temp in Honolulu, HI
    Former Contractor - Temp in Honolulu, HI

    I worked at Hawaii Pacific Health as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    This can be a great place to work depending on the department and place your job is. I was at Harbor Court location as a temp worker. Most of the people here are really nice and down to earth. The workers here are willing to help you out on projects. The salary offering is also really competitive compared to many other Hawaii companies.

    Cons

    I can only speak from the perspective of a temp worker and what other interns at HPH told me. The pipeline for entry level careers at HPH is not great. Whenever you intern or temp and you expect a future at the organization be sure to gauge where your position leads to (and ask this in the interview). There are many college graduates who started as interns at HPH that found a career at Help Desk, this is with their Business or IT degrees. There are maybe 1 or 2 interns that may get a analyst positions when they graduate. However the majority wound up in help desk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have not already done so start looking at how not to under employ talent at HPH. This organization has recruited some great temps and interns, look for ways to best utilize their skills. Otherwise many people working below their capacity and this can create unsatisfactory work environment.

    Pros

    Great people awesome benefits. Schedule is 6 weeks rotating with every third weekend off.

    Former Employee - Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist in Honolulu, HI
    Former Employee - Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist in Honolulu, HI

    I worked at Hawaii Pacific Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I used to be a staff CRNA at Straub (the facility that is a part of Hawaii Pacific Health, advertising this job) along with about 15 other CRNAs. A new department chairman was hired and had a vision for an all MD anesthesia department; made life miserable and all CRNAs eventually quit. That individual is no longer the chairman and the interim chairman is trying to change the culture.

    Cons

    The upper management and surgeons supported the new anesthesia department chair's tactics of creating a miserable work environment ultimately leading to all the CRNAs quitting. It was a super micromanaged work environment; CRNAs do NOT have privileges for lines and regional. This facility is slightly backwards regarding their view on CRNA practice.

    Former Employee - Human Resources in Honolulu, HI

    I worked at Hawaii Pacific Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for HPH. The company invested in its staff and provided ample opportunity to learn and grow in your field to assure staff maintained current competencies. The pay is very competitive. It's hard work with long hours, but well worth it!

    Cons

    None. I would highly recommend this company (and I have to others!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to manage up staff-it's a tough job and alittle "that a boy" goes a long way.

    Pros

    Great mission! Filled with dedicated, passionate people who really care about their work. Good salaries and benefits help make the jobs even more rewarding.

    Cons

    Many managers seem more concerned about managing up than taking care of employees. The drive for meeting goals for bonuses often takes people off the right path. Some managers are terrible, but their higher ups only see the good. Speaking up is difficult without retaliation in some departments, even with the tools available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on what managers are doing by checking in with line staff more often. If there is a pattern of problems in the department, it's probably the manager and not the staff. Gallup is not telling you what you need to know because staff are concerned about what will happen if they answer truthfully in some departments.
