    I have been working at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and environment to work in. Plenty of room for advancement. Good competitive salary. Great training tools.

    Cons

    None so far.... I have been an employee for five years.

    Advice to Management

    Although it's wonderful to have tenure, Sometimes its difficult to take PTO time off due to employees who have so much time accrued. It would be nice if we had a cap which demands they take the time or take it in a check.

    I have been working at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the people with whom I work. The doctors, MAs, and front-office staff are truly a team. We work hard to give the best service to our patients.

    Cons

    Management does not understand what we do but consistently tries to change policies to make things "better." Work/Life balance is only considered for those in supervisor positions. Those in entry level roles bear the full weight of the stress of the day-to-day operations.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more creative in managing problems and consider true work/life balance for your employees.

    I worked at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I met some great people there, and learned a lot about myself.

    Cons

    Everything - the work can be tedious. Management is so focused on cost cutting, they sometimes sacrifice quality. There are emphasis on customer service, but employees aren't incentivized to do well. Training is never refreshed if you are clinical. Being in registration, I was treated like a second class employee by most departments I interacted with.

    Advice to Management

    Positive motivation works much better than threats of loosing one's job.

    Pros

    Working for an Indiana University Hospital was a great experience. The management team was very helpful accommodating scheduling and staffing issues.

    Cons

    Indiana University Hospitals are pushing out LPNs in order to achieve magnet status which is a silly thing to achieve. Not all people can go back to school and further their education while continuing to work part time.

    I have been working at Indiana University Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good staff, caring medical professionals, reasonable pay, 3 12 hour shifts, opportunity for advancement, benefits start soon after hire, professional environment, treated with respect and dignity. Family feel on the unit I work on.

    Cons

    Staffing shortages at times, benefit costs go up every year, invasive health track programs for insurance discounts, forced floating without regard to resource staff training at times, raises significantly less than competition across town.

    Advice to Management

    Staff adequately, compete with the raises across town, get rid of the health tracking program, stop asking employees for donations for so many things, while still forcing them to purchase scrubs and such through IU owned affiliates. Consider opening the cafe for night staff, as well as scheduling mandatories for the 30-50% of staff who don't work days.
