    I worked at Adventist HealthCare part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The work schedule is sometimes not distributed fairly among the technicians. Some people get reprimanded for tardiness and some do not.

    Be fair across the board.

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working with the patients, co-workers, and being challenged to apply the skills that I learned
    The co-workers were helpful and are team players

    Cons

    After one of the managers left the job, there was little to no direction given. I wasn't getting the help I needed (a supervisor's help).

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and really care about the patients and each other.

    Health insurance is affordable and pretty comprehensive if you go to Adventist approved facilities & providers.

    Cons

    Mid-level managers are afraid to admit there are problems in their departments due to fear that upper management will fire employees/them as a "FIX" to the problem. As a result, nothing gets "fixed" until it becomes a crisis.

    I found out when I left there that they do not participate in COBRA due to a religious organization exemption. It took me a month to apply and get accepted for Obamacare, without that, I'd be declined for insurance due to multiple pre-existing conditions.

    Upper management changes frequently so it is difficult to have similar priorities from one management group to another.

    Advice to Management

    Offer COBRA to former employees even though you aren't required to. Make it very clear in new employee orientation that COBRA will not be offered for former employees during prospective employee interviews so they can make an informed decision about accepting a job offer.

    I have been working at Adventist HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been lucky enough to work with some incredibly passionate and dedicated people. The patient is definitely a priority and the CEO truly cares about the people and the mission of the organization. Work-life balance is good, depending on your department/management.

    Cons

    Raises are not based on performance and firing people is nearly impossible it seems. Not sure if management just doesn't want to deal with low performers, but it kills morale to see a low performing coworker get the exact same 1.5% raise that the star employee gets. Would also rather accrue a lower rate for PTO in order to not have to use it for holidays. It makes planning vacations challenging when you have to "save" PTO to cover mandatory holidays and cannot go negative on your balance.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees who go above and beyond and address performance issues before there's no incentive to do more than the bare minimum. Provide a clear career progression path. Pay ranges for internal career opportunities shouldn't be a national security level secret - Can I financially afford to pursue another opportunity in the organization or not?

    I have been working at Adventist HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits but price usually rises annually. Employer contribution to 403b and 401k; 100% vested after 5 years. Reasonable PTO.

    Cons

    Below average salary especially in Care Management. Salary increases are small (1.5%) and infrequent, don't expect it annually. High turnover overall in Behavioral Health. Organization has difficulty attracting talent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making excuses, hold people accountable and get out of your cliques.
