Pros
Cons
  • It is IT and the corporate office but no job sharing or working from home and too secretive about the new promotion step program instituted (in 5 reviews)

  • Dress code can be a little strict in the corporate office but the people and the atmosphere make up for that small drawback (in 5 reviews)

    I worked at Adventist Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The culture there is second to none. So many opportunities to grow and move as they operate 46 hospitals in several states.

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel like a number as there are so many employees. Also, sometimes, due to the size of the organization, you don't get praise for your hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue building and nurturing your staff. They are the future of the company.

    I have been working at Adventist Health System part-time

    Pros

    Kind and caring community.
    A lot of internal growth opportunities for those willing to push themselves.
    An in development consumer centric approach to healthcare.
    Value and appreciation for good work.

    Cons

    Currently behind the times in people systems and technology.
    Lack of continuity between different entities AHS owns.
    Room for AHS' culture to grow outside of corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Dare to disrupt the healthcare industry in a forward thinking approach to consumer centric opportunities.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Growth opportunity. Our mission is what drives me to come to work every morning.

    Cons

    C-Suite Management seems a little detached from the actual day to day activities. Lower level management gets away with some unethical behavior which jeopardizes employees engagement. It is obvious that, like in many other industries, your ability to grow is not based on experience and abilities; but on who liked you best.

    Advice to Management

    They should interview a handful of employees in each area to get a real feel of what is going on. I would recommend employees are picked based on years of service. This way you get a range of points of views and opinions.

    Pros

    The pay is very competitive based on market value

    Cons

    The environment is very professional. A little too professional. The office is too quiet. If you are young and outgoing and like to have fun, this may not be the place for you.

    Pros

    People are very friendly and careful here. I will highly recommend others for work here. I would love to continue as long as I can. Faith based policy which I love it. team work and many more

    Cons

    I like less on Pay day off (PDO) policy. If it is yours first year roughly you will get 20 to 22 days in a years which includes your holiday and sick days. Sometimes Your boss/ manger will be forced you to take off on extra holiday. However, once you cross your first year it will be increased (little).

    Advice to Management

    Please fix PDO. It might looks good on upper management. But at lower end you might not aware what going on.

    Pros

    Very organized operations, competent employees, respectful and professional atmosphere, flexibility, work-life balance, beautiful campus

    Unfortunately, favoritism does exist here. Limited growth opportunities, pay/benefits are not competitive with the market.

    You do a great job vetting prospect employees in the interview process - retain these good people and provide a career path for them, and execute it.

    Pros

    You get a $5.00 meal voucher and a 10% off coupon at the local hospital thrift store

    Cons

    Horrible management, spineless leadership and some of the most viscous backstabbing I've ever seen at ANY job I have EVER worked at. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should avoid this horror show:

    -they use people's faith to manipulate them into working for crap money. "Sacred work" happens everywhere...one needn't work in a faith-based hospital for their work to be sacred.
    -they could care less about actual patient care, unless it generates more revenue. The greed on the 12th floor is astounding. They should be ashamed of themselves collecting 6+ figures/ year while the people who take care of patients get less than 1% raises per year.
    -you have to know someone or be related to get a promotion. If neither applies to you and you were promoted, it was a lucky break.
    -the physicians run the show and could care less if they grind you down to a bloody nub, as long as you are still a tool for them to make money.-
    -the way they calculate your pdo accrual is so convoluted, that people give up trying to figure it out.
    -the health insurance is a joke
    -there is no honesty. At all.
    -they have this almost "zero tolerance" attitude toward employees. Like, no human qualities must ever show through your fake smiles and greetings. I agree that personal problems should be left at the door, but let's face it...we are all human and we are not perfect. It disgusts me that the temperance and grace NEVER sways in the direction of the employees. Always in the direction of the top.

    Advice to Management

    Management would never take advice at this organization, but just in case they do...
    Be leaders, not micromanagers. Those surveys we have to take every year? The negativity in the responses is no accident...perhaps you should reflect upon them instead of scheduling those silly "executive partnership" meetings with the suits. Try leading by example.
