    I worked at Maricopa Integrated Health System full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    At the moment there are none. The pension is not worth the hassle. Medical benefits are average and frequently messed up.

    Cons

    Leadership has driven this place into the ground wasting money left and right on consulting firms, IT contracts for systems that don't work and getting their friends in the top positions.
    There are managers with no staff or people are moved across departments just to give someone a promotion.

    No opportunities for development - unless you're unqualified, unexperienced and never did the job - no real training, no pay raises even with increased workload or more responsibilities. Education allowance has over 4 years waiting line and is only for clinical staff.

    You're given assignments and left alone to figure out how to get it done - which could be good - but you never know if you achieved or not the objective.

    Very skilled people, with real experience in doing things and delivering on objectives, last less than 2 years. No one who can get stuff done lasts longer due to the culture that is simply against it.

    HR messes up everything they touch from benefits to payments. All departments have high turnover and no one cares.

    Every one who could and still can is leaving since no one knows whether this place will be there next day. Ever increasing workload for those who are left and have to make it work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some real leadership in place before it's too late.

    I have been working at Maricopa Integrated Health System part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with really dedicated professionals that have the patients' best interests at heart. Despite being a safety net hospital network, they have a world class burn center, level 1 trauma center and first rate mental health facilities.

    Cons

    Long hours and diminishing resources are always a problem in healthcare environments. No different here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek out mega donors to support operational costs. The bond issue only covers brick and mortar.

  5. Burn unit casualty

    I worked at Maricopa Integrated Health System

    Pros

    The staff is great, most are there to assist the patient in getting better and they are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Too many to list and this site keeps names from being disclosed, so if you go to work there, smile back, but know that there are those that will harm patients to make you look bad if they don't like you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't allow the burn unit to be turned into an extension of the psych annex

    Pros

    ASRS Pension and PTO, excellent security and orientation overal

    Cons

    Poor structure for new employment performance review, spend too much time discussing their pillars and core values that have no worth for the hired position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better positive environment for employee retention. Behavioral psych hires and dismisses with a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Great patient population/pathology. Hands on experience and unique opportunity to grow as a professional.

    Cons

    Lack of strong leadership. Residents are undermined by attendings fostering current nursing challenging behavior. Constant battle with an unaccountable nursing staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire respectful people, retrain personnel and make them accountable

    Pros

    MIHS has excellent teaching staff from well renown hospitals. There is a tremendous variety of pathology and a patient population that is very appreciative. The academic affairs department creates an excellent teaching environment.

    Cons

    The neighborhood is so-so and there is no covered parking.

    I worked at Maricopa Integrated Health System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    MIHS has everything. If you don't like where you're at, you can usually move around within the organization.

    Its NEVER boring. Things are constantly changing. Sometimes you hit a rough patch, but it usually evens out.

    GREAT for building your career and gaining experience, or even staying for a long term career, or leaving and then returning (which plenty of folks have done).

    Being on the front lines here is unparalleled; one of the best places to work in a hands-on patient care role, especially if you have a good team.

    A strong sense of community and diversity and on the whole, people are very friendly.

    The patient population is unlike anywhere else; the mission of the hospital is to serve the community. There is a very strong sense of purpose also.

    If you're in your 50s, the retirement plan may be worth it for you alone.

    Although sometimes they overdo it, leadership development is really pretty good here.

    My health insurance was awesome here. I used the MIHS facilities whenever I could and I never even saw a bill.

    Cons

    Definitely a bureaucracy; power within the organization seriously needs to be rebalanced. Way too many managers

    Much has changed very drastically in recent years. The organization is still grappling to embrace all of the new technology it has implemented (which has affected patient care in both negative and positive ways).

    Instead of feeling like a medical center with an IT department inside of it, it sometimes feels like the place is an IT department with a medical center inside of it.

    H.R., Employee Education, and parts of Administration are too large and made up of folks who, to put it very kindly, are clueless about patient care. And unfortunately, a lot of these folks will never leave, because they will never command their existing salary elsewhere.

    This is a place where people hang on to the past; it is not uncommon to find people who have been at the organization for over 3 decades who are kinda tough to work with, and really, rightly so, because this place makes you tough!

    Working in management here is extremely difficult (but it can also be extremely rewarding).

    The retirement is worth it in the long run, but when you start its HARD. Especially right now. There's no way out of it; its mandatory and you cannot adjust your contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It takes a lot to keep MIHS running on a daily basis. You deserve credit for even showing up!

    Always remember that front-line staff (as well as patients) make up the heart of MIHS. Remember employee perks and incentives whenever you can.

    And please do something about that Godawful parking situation. If Basha's can put up canvas carports, so can you.
