Great benefits, love my co-workers, no stress environment.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Vanguard Health Systems

ProsI work at one of the Health Systems that Vanguard owns. Overall, I like working there b/c of benefits, I have no long hours, everything is very routine. Once you get your job down you can pretty much do it in your sleep.

ConsNo upward mobility. Also, we tend to be treated like children by management team.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more recognition for lower rank jobs, these are the people actually doing all the work. More communication please, let us know the big picture. However, this might not be a Vanguard problem it could just be our Sr management team.

ConsPoor pay and lack of development and retention practices, has led to much turnover at all levels of the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Less than forthcoming

Data Center Analyst (Current Employee)
Berwyn, IL

I have been working at Vanguard Health Systems as a contractor for less than a year

ProsIf you manage to get a job working with their I.T. department, then you may be blessed to be in a position to grow and learn.

ConsThe weasels running the particular hospital I work at refuse to give a concrete end date for our positions and prefer to jerk people around.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit acting like spineless worms, man up and tell people what's really going on.
