pretty affordable costs for employees
Health Insurance is very cost effective and great offerings.
Not a good vacation package
This pertains to AGH specifically and may differ from other hospitals: The health insurance meets an expected standard from other competitors. The deductible is quite high for outside network providers and some prescriptions can be expensive. There is an employee and family maintenance drug program than can reduce some maintenance medication costs to zero if filling with AHN. This is unique in my experience with other hospitals. There are a few options with insurance for both full and part time employees that include HSA, FSA, 90/10 payor, 80/20 or a basic health account as well as added vision and dental. Vacation time accrues hourly and starts at roughly the equivalent of 3 weeks the first several years (for full time) and caps at 5 weeks vacation with maximum banking limits. Retirement 403b is now matched up to 4%. You do pay to park at a garage near the main hospital with regular transport shuttles looping in 15 minutes or less. The cost is fairly reduced from a normal leasing price outside of AHN. A shuttle also goes into the heart of the city, free of charge to the Highmark building across the river with a free gym to employees. The company has also partnered with other companies for discounts to goods and services including restaurants and a scrub shop.
Health insurance cost is mostly covered by company - life insurance and long/short-term disability fully covered; dental and vision only a few dollars a month. Spouse coverage is reasonable. Time off is generous and starts accrual with first day of work. 8 hours of holiday pay allotted for full time workers for all federal holidays, and those holiday hours can be saved for PTO on other dates if employee chooses to work the holiday.
Absolutely no sharing of the company's success. Needs to modernize and offer incentive pay. Will never hold on to talent without it.
Health insurance in general is expensive
HR is not up to speed when adding changes or getting insurance coverage added to Employees profile
The company, because it is a healthcare provider, offers pretty decent medical insurance packages as very reasonable price. The company, at least in my department, was going to be switching from a 403b to a 401k come 2018, which was fairly exciting. Paid Time Off (PTO) accrual was fair, however it is quite literally impossible to use regardless the reason. For the position I held, there was a monthly shift differential, quality and availability bonus. However, it wasn't enough to rave over.
