    I have been working at Altru Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, covers immigration expenses if you need.

    Cons

    Horrible management who disrespect their employees especially physicians, not flexible and micromanage big time, can't control even your own patient schedule as a doctor. They don't support career growth. I don't recommend it to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your doctors! You need them to stay. You work hard to recruit but you do the opposite to retain.

    Pros

    The nursing staff is mostly wonderful.

    Cons

    Administration has no backbone when it comes to standing up to the Doctors. They don't support nursing staff. Doctors are allowed to speak to nurses in horrible ways, abusing them emotionally and verbally.

    Advice to Management

    Take some accountability and treat all staff with respect.

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work here....they are trying to get to World Class Care but it needs to start at the top....and it doesn't....

    Cons

    Don't expect to have a voice....your voice means nothing - they don't care what you have to say. The micro managing seems to be getting worse....

    Advice to Management

    Get off the Studer kick....it's not working....Employees are valuable assets - and should be valued.
