    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Rockford Health System

    Pros

    Good benefits, caring people all around. Good advancement troughs the company, continue to work hard and you will make it.

    Cons

    Advice to management, listen to the people that are at the ground level as they are the majority. You have to embrace change so that the employees and management can lead this company to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on going

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Rockford, IL

    I worked at Rockford Health System full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement
    Excellent time off accrual
    Excellent and caring nursing staff.
    Employees care about mission and values.

    Cons

    Inconsistency in policies from department to department or even person to person within the same department; more of who you know than what you know. Sends employees to many inservices and classes, but rarely implement or demonstrate what is being "marketed" to employees. No loyalty to long term employees. Values and mission are not demonstrated by some managers and senior leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the front line to improve environment and culture. Reward long term employees. Take into account performance when promoting, rather than who you are related to. Investigate complaints about unethical behavior rather than sweeping it under the rug.

    I worked at Rockford Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Patients are fantastic. Coworkers were pretty darn great too. I loved the feeling of community the employees shared. They have a great employee emergency find.

    Cons

    Management does not care about employees. Even if you go HR, they do not protect their employees. It is a business and patients were pushed out before being ready quite often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints from staff seriously. High employee turn over rates do a lot of talking. Take notice.

    Former Employee - Radiology Tech Aid in Rockford, IL

    I worked at Rockford Health System as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits for full timers and really great co-workers in the Radiology Department. Friendly, team players and supportive atmosphere.

    Cons

    Cost saving measures make it hard to get hired even part time. I was a Registry Tech Aid while a student in their Rad Tech school and a hiring freeze was put in place so no job when I finished school. Many registry or per diem techs so no steady hours or benefits for these workers.

    Better pay than most security jobs in the area, and steady work.

    Need to be more cohesive and not play favorites.
