    I have been working at Valley Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Constant teamwork and comradeship.

    Cons

    Horrible middle-upper management. Zero management skills from middle management. Management too involved in personal affairs/matters. Management gets too upset when ideas didn't come from them, or the employee got all the praise without any mention to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out your employees personal lives, promote their growth, especially if they started with someone on their own.

    I have been working at Valley Health full-time

    Pros

    I have found no pros to this place. Only endless cons.

    Cons

    Too many managers and not enough employees to do the work needed. Upper management doesn't care about employees at all. Review system for raises is rigged so you get nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't expect people to perform any job function if they are not satisfied with their work environment and that takes caring about them, listening to them and actually implementing change needed. You can't write people up for overtime when you give them too much work to complete within an 8 hour day, nor write them up for not completing it so they won't get overtime.

    I have been working at Valley Health part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get paid every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Valley Heath has not given raises in a while, some employees even got a pay cut this year. No flexibility in schedule/work life. Management is not involved and spend money on items that add no value to the organization. Community has many poor things to say about the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your office and see whats going on. Spend money on your employees, invest in their future.

    I have been working at Valley Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Large local employer
    Opportunities to advance within the company

    Cons

    Large employer - sometimes overlooked and only considered a number.
    Annual salary increase is not truly based upon merit but rather what is budgeted.
    This employer is behind the times and needs to institute more work-life flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers & Supervisors should be required to take management classes /training throughout the year. Many of them have become leaders of their department(s) because they have been in the field for years; however, years of experience in the field does not translate over into a great manager of people. Executive Management fails to try and correct an issue that they are fully aware of in order to keep the peace. Unacceptable.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck...regret the day I walked in the door

    Cons

    They claim that the numbr one priority is the patients, that is a joke..the only thing they care about is how much money is coming in so upper crust can get their yearly bonus....If you do not hold a title of Manager,Director,Ceo , VP, President...you are nothing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit claiming to be a non profit...do you think the community and your normal employees are stupid?

    I have been working at Valley Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got paid on time.

    Cons

    The management is terrible, the incentives have been reduced to near zero while the upper echelon lines it's pocket. The organization continues to expand while paying the most meager salaries. The raises have all but stopped while the company spends millions of dollars to build even more hospitals and structures. Plus if you manage to make somebody mad, they will run you out the door one way or another.

    I have been working at Valley Health

    Pros

    All work done eventually benefits the health of our customers. Benefits are adequate. I have a great commute. As one of the largest employers in the area, there are a number of benefits and discounts. As a large local hospital everyone I meet understands my job right away.

    Cons

    Promotions are given to less qualified staff with political ties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate! Someone should be driving the bus.

    Pros

    Largest employer in the area.
    There are some very nice and hardworking people working at VH.

    Cons

    The Senior Management Team needs to be replaced. Very much an "old boys club" mentality, even though there are many females on the team.

    Pros

    apl is easy to accrue, great dept director, good support from dept director and vice pres. no weekend hours, good working environment.

    a dept has to get below the bare minimum of employees before they will consider hiring a new employee, not enough per diem employees for dept.
