    Pros

    Excellent team work
    Excellent opportunity to learn new areas
    Excellent opportunity to take on new responsibilities
    The Benefits (excluding pay) are FANTASTIC!

    Cons

    Many times you have to leave your team to get a promotion or you have to leave the company then be hired back to get better pay.
    You are given much more responsibility than you will be paid for
    Very little to no training if you are not clinical.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage leadership to change the environment of pushing good employees to leave because they can't get what they deserve in their current group or at Banner. Ensure areas outside of clinical also have educational opportunities.

    I worked at Banner Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Banner is a leader in the healthcare field.
    -I had the best manager I've ever had while a IT Systems Engineer at Banner
    -Their size allows for interesting and exciting projects to be taken on.

    Cons

    -I found it difficult to be creative and innovative at Banner (in an IT role), mostly due to policy and regulation (internal and external). I know healthcare is heavily regulated in general, but it just became too much.
    -Their size allows for a lot of bureaucracy and slow movement, even though they still want things done fast.

    Advice to Management

    You might consider changing your tune of "You have to have a high tolerance for ambiguity and a love of complex things to make it in healthcare" to something more along the lines of "We know healthcare is ambiguous and complex, but we will do everything we can to make it as simple and clear as possible for our employees." The current way of thinking makes it seem like you're embracing complexity and ambiguity, which I never liked.

    Nepotism and favoritism and based upon fear.

    Pros

    Telecommute options, no real pressure.

    Cons

    Uneducated management, favortism, incompetent management and some incomptenet workers. Your value and review is based totally on people skills on not on IT technical skills. If you stink at what you do, but can play the game, then you are in.

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN HOUSE!
