    I worked at Adventist Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees are treated well for the most part. Good benefits, average salaries, and - if you make it there long enough - excellent PTO accrual.

    Cons

    In my opinion, the amount of middle management bloat is mind boggling - we’re talking three to four layers of red tape before you get to anyone who is actually willing to make a decision. There is very little that teams of employees can do to get bad managers out of the system. Change management is non-existent. Over the last six years, corporate leadership consolidated and/or outsourced most of the following departments: Facilities, HR, Finance, Biomed/HTM, IT, and Accounting. Corporate and site specific leadership turnover (and provider turnover for that matter) is high. Wage inequality, in my opinion, is alive and well in this company.

    Advice to Management

    In my humble opinion, you should cut the excess out of your organizational chart. Listen to your employees. Improve communication and change management. Remember, consultants don’t always know better than the people you already have working for you. Instead of just slapping an EOE statement on job postings and in employee manuals, actually treat and pay everyone equally regardless of gender or race.

    Pros

    Fast pace, some coworkers were nice, you learn a lot about insurances and get experience in a lot of things

    Cons

    Low pay because they switched to Cerner
    Shift changes every 2 months it’s not that bad but it’s a con
    Boss isn’t helpful at all only cares about herself
    Some nurses can be mean

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional.
    Notice that your employees are working had and show some respect

    Staff is great. Management does the best they can, but after they went corporate things went south real fast.

    Corporate changes causes a lot of undue stress on staff.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, many support staff that are compassionate and care about patients.

    Cons

    Very religious and management encourages you to share religious testimony/experiences/prayer with patients - the PAS management team works for a third party company that hires externally so there is little room for advancement and your managers often have never done your job.

    Advice to Management

    Train at the positions you are managing to get a clearer picture of resources needed, ways to support your team and realistic expectations of performance levels
