    I have been working at AMITA Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very fair hourly compensation-much higher than surrounding health systems.
    Overtime available.
    Great teamwork.
    Time off requests almost always accommodated (unless it absolutely cannot be done/too many people have taken that time).
    Management does not promise things that cannot be delivered. Even if it takes a little longer than expected, promises are kept.
    No micromanagement at all- everyone is treated as an adult and held to the responsibilities of their position.
    Not much travel between sites unless short staff-this allows patient and employee to develop trusting relationships and comfort.

    Cons

    Most sites require only one employee, it can get lonely.
    Communication about department information could use some improvement.

    Advice to Management

    There has been so much growth and improvement to our department. A quicker response time to emails would be my only advice, otherwise keep up the great work,
