    I worked at Orlando Health

    Pros

    When I started with Orlando Health over 25 years ago, it was a great company to work for. The company was very family oriented. The rate of pay was great along with the benefits

    Cons

    The company wasn't focused on the staff any longer.

    I worked at Orlando Health (more than a year)

    Pros

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Has great rotation programs which could be a hit or miss especially during summers.

    Cons

    Leaders know happy staff makes happy patients. Not all staff were happy about moves made in the past few years. If that's the case then they aren't ready to make much difference with you. Same thing to volunteer program, you may lose those young bright volunteers day 1 if it remains unchanged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The higher leadership needs to see further down as far as payor mix and cost containment. Go grab the community before getting the money. Know your patients so you can estimate optimal profit margin. Act before someone else has done picking cherries.

    Former Employee - Programmer Analyst II

    I worked at Orlando Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is from a corporate point-of-view. Things maybe different from a clinical standpoint.

    Relaxed work hours and environment (if working for corporate)
    Healthcare benefits very inexpensive as long as you stay in-network
    Chances of you being fired is near 0%. Even if you don't do anything all day.
    Company realizes that it needs to improve just doesn't know how to accomplish
    Competitive 401k/403b benefit

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry average
    Unable to hold on to technically competent team members
    Policies not followed or enforced. Most policies out dated
    Over reliant on 3rd party vendors for everything
    Same executive management has been in place for 20+ yrs
    Buddy system and back door deals run rampant at the highest levels
    Patient care has gotten worse despite millions spent on campaign to improve
    Technical and non-technical jobs rolled into same generic job title (meaning same pay)
    Clinical EMR's are a mess. Difficult to tell what is wrong with patients, what was done to treat them, or if they are getting better or worse.
    Unqualified clinical staff are given supervisory roles in IT projects
    The CIO makes all software purchasing decisions, does not seek advice from his technical experts, and claims success even though software implementation fails to meet objectives.
    Projects take years longer than necessary and cost way more then expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The incoming CEO needs to replace the current executive leadership

    I have been working at Orlando Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and flexible schedule

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive with market. Merit increases are an insult to employees intelligence. Salaries should be based on employees" performance and not based on gender or race or clinical ladder. Micromanaging to the max. Nott appropriate staffing,, especially on weekends. Management not interested about staff concerns or opinion. Patients are always right even if they abuse staff. Health Insurance is a joke. Low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff concerns without offering a quick solution to problem. Show genuine concern without risk of retaliation. Invest at least half of the effort invest on patients satisfaction on employees satisfaction - Happy employee= happier patients. Provide appropriate staffing. Stop showing favoritsm.

    I have been working at Orlando Health

    Pros

    Benefits packages are affordable. Nice facilities. The food at Winnie Palmer is really good. PTO accrual is pretty nice.

    Cons

    The pay: I started at 9.00 and I was shocked that an organization as such would pay so poorly. Seems that low pay is the standard for non clinical workers ie. food service, environmental services, patient transportation, etc.

    Lack of raises and bonuses: I thought I'd get a raise after my evaluation as most companies do, but nothing. Holidays are here and we didn't even get a bonus.

    Administration: They don't make you feel like you're a valued team member. They are always having lavish lunches and parties and all while employees are making pennies on the dollar.

    No break room: My department doesn't have a break room. The nurses and doctors have nice break rooms with comfy sofas and LCD TVs. It would be nice to at least have a spot.

    Anti-Union: They are constantly shoving how supposedly bad unions are down our throats. Emails and even talks from your department manager about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees. Do a survey or something to rate their happiness. Most non clinical employees are always talking among each other about finding other jobs. How about fair pay. No one is expecting a six figure income for an entry level position, but you can literally make more flipping burgers or working retail. Orlando Health pay is much lower than the other hospitals in the area.
