    I have been working at Advocate Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Staff gets along well. Staff assists with one another the best we can

    Cons

    There is no advancement, employees are not respected, listened to and good work is NEVER noticed. Instead, employees have tons of excess work thrown on them to save a buck. Each staff member does the work of three employees because Advocate will not hire new associates to cover the deficit. Management is a bit of a mess from the top down. There is absolutely no room for advancement unless you know someone from the top.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to those who have put in the time as employees, Thos of us who have been there for over 7-10 years are treated no differently those employees who are newly employed. There is no seniority. Trust your employees and hire management that is clinical.

    I worked at Advocate Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Great job and work environment, management was great

    Cons

    Working 12 hours every other weekend, working all the holidays got to me after so many years of doing it. Also tired of taking call. No personal time.

    Advice to Management

    Relieve your employees for lunch, even if it means you have to watch their patients for 30 mins, it really means alot.
