    I have been working at Ascension Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I choose to work here because of the values. They are also very good at accommodating multiple schedules. If any emergency arose they were very understanding.

    Cons

    All my work submitted online, so that can be challenging at times. Having a system that everyone gets alerted to changes in client status would help with overall care.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain good communication with everyone in the company.

    I worked at Ascension Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not much to like. Leadership is unethical and look for blame rather than solutions, systems and policies do not exist, money is the only focus.

    Lots of opportunity to advance because leadership changes at least yearly.

    Cons

    Expectations are not attainable. Work load more than 60 hr weeks. Short staffed inconsistent practices. Operates in a culture of fear.

    Advice to Management

    Policies, systems, and consistency would cover a lot of misdeeds
