    I have been working at Aurora Health Care full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Aurora nearly 10 years and have changes positions (promotions) 5 times, so clearly they try to retain employees. I have been fortunate to always have good managers who understand the roles of their employees and do not ask too much or too little. Aurora will challenge the employees to take an active role in their career development which I appreciate otherwise it is easy to fall into a routine without advancement. As a larger health system, Aurora has a vast library of resources for its employees (esp. pharmacists) that aid you in your daily work. Benefits packages are also great.

    Cons

    As a larger organization, it can be easy to feel like a number and punch the clock so the employee must stay engaged (though Aurora has perks to try to offset this). If you get your BCPS, that is not enough for a pay increase, you will also need to do additional work (i.e. precept students or residents, etc).

    Pros

    Sinai hospital is a great place to work; people are friendly and say hello; leadership team is visible and transparent; people care about their patients; safety is important.

    Cons

    Honestly cannot think of any!

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to employees, sharing information, and celebrating wins.

    Pros

    Great hours
    Great resident pay

    Cons

    You work for a health care system, therefore, their priorities and your priorities as a physician are not always on the same wavelength

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

    Pros

    Discounts to Six Flags, gym membership, etc. Fun activities/food gatherings in each department. Gained medical knowledge, phone skills, people skills. Patients were friendly.

    Cons

    Low pay and costed me a lot of gas. I was driving 35 minutes each way to work and not getting up to even a grand in my check every two weeks. No overtime was allowed. If you were over 40 hours you would have to take it back by coming in late or leaving early.
    Rotation of hours was fine but changed weekly and was a struggle for your body to adjust to. Sometimes you would get up at 5 in the morning and the next week you would be getting up at 8 for your shift.
    I think I got the short end of the stick for departments. My department was known to be the gossipy one. All our boss did was fuel the flame.
    Ended up doing more work than the rest because some would go "missing" for hours leaving you alone with back to back phone calls and checking in and out patients. After a year of working at Aurora, my supervisor still called me by the wrong name...

    Advice to Management

    This is a large company, my small meaningless advice would not go anywhere-just straight to the garbage.

    I have been working at Aurora Health Care part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer tuition assistance. Working here as a CNA will help me easily transition to a nurse external position and an RN after that. I’m lucky to have a team of nurses and assistants that take care of each other.

    Cons

    The pay is less than what I could make at local grocery stores. I work on one of the more decently staffed floors and it’s still understaffed some of the time. I also hear that raises are less than a dollar. Orientation was ten shifts and then it’s trial by fire...for better or worse. Many employees feel like cogs in a soulless machine. Managers come and go every year, while trying “new” procedures and practices that have been tried and failed in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and show more than lip service. Y’all talk about how the client is our focus, but ignore the staff in the dirty trenches who are trying to serve the clients. I’m sure you’re well aware of the large number of nurses leaving the facility. I wonder why...
