I have been working at Centura Health full-time (More than 10 years)
Very, *very* laid back environment, which makes it easy to get work done and not be a complete buzzkill. I'm pretty much left to my own devices, after the basic job function is complete (4-6 hours/day). Dress code and attendance policy are very accommodating. Co-workers are amicable and, for the most part, know what they are doing. Work/life balance is pretty good, and probably the highlight of my employment experience. I am salaried and am not required to work much overtime, at all, and PTO is handled fairly in my case (I have heard horror stories, though).
The environment is so laid back, it is to the point of non-professionalism in some departments. Low and Mid-level management, generally, have no idea what they are doing or what the term, "best process" means. Career opportunities are very limited in my case, and I have been passed over for promotion many times. Politics is a major factor to success, here. This is a company where the Dilbert Principle (Google it) is in full effect; they want knowledgable, productive workers to stay right where they are at. No promotions for you!!! Compensation is abysmal: starting "System Analyst" pay was $20/hour ($41,600/year). It's not really a System Analyst position; I made it into one and received no recognition or compensation for my efforts, despite numerous improvements to the core functionality of the department. Needless to say, that extra effort stopped pretty quick. Benefits are mediocre at best: high deductible health plan; $3k/year college reimbursement (most places offer $5k); and all fringe benefits—bonuses, PTO cashout, etc.—have been eliminated over the years. Retirement plan changed 3 times over the years: began as defined pension, then 403b, now 401k. How does a non-profit offer a 401k, anyway? Basically, this is a $4 billion "non-profit" (huge air-quotes) that operates like a startup. Nothing is organized; I wrote my own policy and procedure manual, from scratch. They will not provide even the most basic tools to do a technical, customer support position. In my case, this meant certain access and technologies that IT has routine access to. They outright refused to provide this. It took me 4 years to get a laptop with VPN access (after much begging). The support facility where I am located is a dump: the roof leaks; it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter; the men's bathroom is tiny, one of the stalls is locked, and it has no urinals (WTF??) while the women have 2 bathrooms; the facade of the building and the parking lot are crumbling.
Advice to Management
Hire people into management with degrees and/or extensive experience in their field... Please, for the love of God, do this... Fire your "Talent Management" or Recruiting team; it is a complete joke. Shift hiring responsibilities to HR, where they should be (instead of the CEO having to sign off on every new hire in a company of 20,000+ employees). Stop outsourcing everything and make it easier for management to open more FTEs. Most lower-level employees are overworked. Compensate more, people don't make enough! Stop spending $200-$300 million on hospitals and acquisitions, and invest more resources into your business offices and employees!
