    I worked at Sanford Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sanford Health has opportunities to transfer to different areas. The training offered via Learning Management System and additional training is nice.

    Cons

    There are alot of concerns with upper management. Staff shortages, employee retention and employee recognition are a few of the key struggles a growing company goes through. There is definitely a sense of employee's being replaceable. The extensive growth, especially in Fargo region combined with limited resources makes it hard to attract good employees. Company has a bad reputation in the community. Compensation and Benefits package is POOR for a Health system.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on retention would keep good employees around
