    Weird Timing

    Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsFull time, benefits, average hospital, good people, fulfilling job

    ConsThey are in the middle of a merger so our area is completely short on staff so the work load is much greater but it is not unmanageable or unbearable.

    It has been an educational experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe patients are great. Many of the nurses are really helpful. The hours are reasonable. You get to make your own schedule.

    ConsGetting floated or cancelled. Working 12 hours is a long time. You can get very busy and you feel overwhelmed.

    The same old story....bean counters vs. realistic staffing

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat co-workers, superb nursing administration

    ConsAdministration's ideas re: adequate staffing often at odds with reality

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee "Cons" above. When people's lives are at stake, assigning too many patients to one nurse can result in problems.

    Great company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone is friendly and providing the best care and service to our patients is the number one goal. Helping people is a rewarding feeling.

    ConsSome changes within the past few months kept me from rating this company 5 stars. There seem to be no growth in my department as well.

    Average

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsLargest employer lots of options

    ConsHR is terribly run, most system services are underutilized and inefficient. Upper management is more worried about looking good then actually fixing anything. Culture of fear in nursing and leadership as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop talent instead of hiring from outside every single time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Information Services decline and crash

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI have the greatest respect for the clinicians at IUH who believe that competent, compassionate patient care is their purpose. In IS I got experience that would have been unobtainable in any other Central Indiana hospital. I worked with some smart, experienced, and kind colleagues.

    ConsEnterprise leadership that is detached from realities other than the bottom line. That is *the* con from which all others emanate. Failure of leadership has created a domino effect of issues. No career path for IS analysts, project managers, managers, etc. Poor merit raises compared to compensation of leadership. Inexplicably top-heavy with C-level executives, and adding more, while vital employees below that level are cut.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Situation: Reduction in workforce in the IS department considered salary costs, but not value to the enterprise. Instead of the promised cuts in leadership and low performers, they RIFed in the middle of the IS organization and an illogical number of high performing, experienced, subject matter experts were shoved out the door. Morale is low and the remaining talent is bleeding out of the IS department of its own accord. My Advice: Live the mission statement of the enterprise, if you care to look at it. Don't live the money. The money is extremely important, but if you live the mission you will find better ways to deal with the money. Remember that the only purpose is the patient. Get out and really look at the clinical environment and processes. Require all IS people to get out their isolated and insulated space and "round" regularly in hospitals. Engage clinical staff to find out what gives them pain. Hire the best people for IS, compensate them accordingly, support them, stay out of their way while they use the talent you wanted when you hired, then keep those people. Apply the Studer principle you paid for but consciously ignored: support and compensate your top performers, foster and raise your mid performers to as close to the top as they can get, and get rid of the low performers. As for the latter, in IUH IS the bottom 20% could go out the door and, after some adjustment, productivity and quality would increase.

    Great company to work for. I have been provided much experience and given opportunity to grow over the years.

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsPossibilities for growth within. Great support/management.

    ConsSome departments under the same roof can be very disconnected to one another. It takes personal diligence and hard work to ensure you know the correct channels to get things done.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
