    I worked at Ascension Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in several departments and most of them worked great together

    Cons

    Employees get treated like a number, not a person. I was offered a position in a struggling department. the compensation that I believed would match the heavier work load was meet by HR. For some reason they didn't realize I was an internal canidate. With thay knowledge they couldn't offer me that price. I now work for a competitive hospital making more than what I asked for in the struggling department.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of what is going on. Most managers don't seem to have a clue on what is going on.

    healthcare job great for nurses

    Cons

    a huge company that sometimes loses sight of its mission

    Advice to Management

    this is not a office building. we cannot treat it the same way. our stock are people and they are what we are dealing in. lets treat them like it.

    Pros

    Community based health initiatives serving diverse populations! Competitive purchasing power with each hospital that joins Ascension network.

    Cons

    Growing too fast for organizational structure to keep up. Streamlining policies and procedures without listening to the needs of the departments crippled our ability to carry out patient care and lead to frustration among managers

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros other than you get a paycheck regularly

    Cons

    Very poorly run. Top Corporate management are highest paid non-profit executives in America and way overpaid. Poor strategic decision making and poor management. This is not a true non-profit hospital system. The catholic church needs to pay attention to what's going on or within a few years there won't be much left.

    Advice to Management

    Company does not operate by its values in any way.
