    Pros

    Great people who are hard working and intelligent. Depending on your profession they do have different career paths

    Cons

    Pay isn't competitive, the company will tell you that they're freezing wage increases because of the Healthcare environment, yet will build new hospitals. They have they're own insurance so you get stuck seeing thein doctors. They keep piling responsibilities on you with no wage increase or advancement. Plenty of people are put into leadership positions via cronyism.

    Advice to Management

    Begin to pay workers at competitive rates and consider actually developing the talent you acquire.

    I worked at Banner Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    got lots of experience in a hospital setting. I learned how to work with poor management and survive the bad work environment.

    Cons

    Management was only concerned with money and not patient or employees. no focus on retention and having engaged employees. I got paid on the lower end of the spectrum for my job in radiology. got a big raise when i left. The worst part of working there was the constant cheer leading by management that Banner Health was such a great company, just because you say it doesnt make it true.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying/building so many hospitals and invest in your employees and completely change upper management.

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

    Pros

    Nice local staff, ok salaries

    Cons

    Tyrants running the show at headquarters in AZ. Unbelievable. Turnover is huge, and they are walking RN's out, increasing ratio's, hiring non clinical staff and foreign nurses to fill spaces to save money. Was told AZ hates RN's, they are offering 10K sign on bonuses in AZ for RN's but are being blackballed by the RN's there because of there reputation. Yeah there quality numbers look good, but I question data. Don't care about employee's, your lucky to have a job. Benefits suck, tell you they pay for school and they employer match, and then tell you after they hire you that it takes a year. Its tuff out there, but stay clear, they are creating an artificial RN shortage so they can justify cheap foregin nurses. Gross. Run RN's!

    Advice to Management

    You are top heavy. Read the book flattening the pyramid, or lean out your fat cat corporate office. When I saw clinical people being layed off for "optimization" and you are flying corporate people to arizona for christimas parties? Have some integrity, get rid of the chronic employee abusers. I think you have more lawyers than clinical people, think your going to need them. See how your patient satisfaction scores look after people can't understand their nurses. Really the absolute worst. Shame on you. Its like the 70's fat cat club at headquarters. UNIONIZE RN'S!

    Pros

    Salary was all I miss. Very poor management.

    Cons

    Poor management, favoring of outgoing and chatty people. Quiet yet very hardworking people will not exceed standards. Management in the laboratory I worked in did not enforce rules fairly or evenly. Chronically late employees were able to exceed standards if they were popular.

    Pros

    You have the ability to telecommute. This is a nice perk.

    Cons

    There is no life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Your employees, in return, will be better suited to take care of your patients/clients.

    I have been working at Banner Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some dedicated staff
    Non-profit
    Longevity in community

    Cons

    Bait & switch with job responsibilities
    Inadequate/disorganized training
    Poor employee morale
    Self-congratulatory middle-management
    Inadequate breaks for employees on 12-hour shifts

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that honesty and transparency are employed during new employee interviews. Keep training materials and departmental procedures/protocols updated. Ensure those who are training new employees are qualified to do so. Balance feedback to employees so that it is not only given when negative. Ensure IT systems work as intended, in order to prevent delays with patient services. Offer more than one 30-minute unpaid meal break for employees on 12-hour shifts.

    Pros

    It used to be the people until the corporation took over. The medical plan is expensive but it's great coverage. They have an onsite gym and cafe. They have an onsite coffee shop that sells gourmet coffee. The facilities are well kept and constantly being updated which is typical in hospitals.

    Cons

    In Greeley it's all about who you know, not what you know. There are some real bad directors that should be removed. The pay grades aren't consistent across the regions. People in AZ are promoted and paid a lot more. The Greeley IT Directors make up role summaries to fit their friends. They set the bar very high and require nice to have qualifications. The AZ IT staff gets praised and promoted for jobs well done not for passing a Microsoft test.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Create lines of communication between the AZ HR and Colorado employees. Complaints don't make it to AZ. The locals all watch out for each other and look the other way at bad management skills.

    I have been working at Banner Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many friendly people depending where you work and quite a few employees that have worked for Banner for years. Working prn is nice for life balance and staffing department employees are helpful. Good orientation and most employees willing to work together and help each other if needed. Computer systems are user friendly. Good communication by most and generally a very good work culture. Clean, well maintained facilities and you have the supplies you need to do your job.

    Cons

    There arent always prn shifts to fill. Friendly to your face personality types stick out and unfortunately most of them have a position where they are in charge or have authority over others. There's a lot of competition for a few job openings so you better like staying where you are. If you do get a regular job, its likely a lateral move, except for the hours. Degrees and certifications are everything so forget about your experience- just keep your pocketbook out and forget about any life you thought you had outside of school.
