    I have been working at Adventist Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team work is wonderful. The hospital is faith based. The facility is newer and clean. Very flexible hours which make it perfect for nurses with families.

    Cons

    Charting is ridiculously redundant and very long. You have to do on call once a week and rotate weekends every 4-5 weeks.

    Pros

    Management will work very hard on getting you coverage when needed

    Cons

    the work load is too much. No 10 min breaks and sometimes no lunch coverage. When you ask for help and you get we will try as an answer. Providers don't even get a lunch break most of the time. The pay is not that great for this type of situation

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to your employees especially an entire dept that is asking for help but not getting it. If you are too busy then promote someone in that dept to be a lead to help out with decisions for the team.

    I worked at Adventist Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff members are very dedicated and kind

    Cons

    If you do not belong to the Adventist Church, do not expect to advance or to have upper management treat you with respect. Focus and goals change monthly and the ability to improve is negatively impacted by the company's lack of stable goals.

    Advice to Management

    When you hire people for their expertise, respect them and let them help you improve the business even if the are not Adventist

    Pros

    Great place for new nurses to start up.
    Has some great nurses that are very helpful.
    Decent pay for Selma with yearly 2 percent increase.

    Cons

    Attending stafff meeting can be hard sometimes. Its mandatory. Once per month.
    Annual bonus is only $50, can be better.
    HR loses employee paperworks , they lost my retirement paperwork, which I found out a year later, and my submitted bachelor degree, which I submitted before I start my job.
    Low census, nurses can get out on call pretty frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Need to update all employees with the same info. Some days I go into work, it's something I haven't heard of.

    Pros

    Faith-based, ability to make changes are easier due to small company mentality. Flexible working hours and opportunity for growth are possible.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, unethical practices. No loyalty to the employee, regardless of work quality, or devotion to the network. Who you know, not what you know will get you places.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the same rules you request of all staff
