    I have been working at Banner Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady work, full time opportunity in a field that has more per diem than full time positions. Excellent doctors who are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Management doesn't practice what the company preaches. Pay is NOT competitive, especially for the amount if work we do outside our job description.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on your middle managers and hold them to the same performance standards as everyone else.

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

    Pros

    The health benefits are okay, not amazing but not the worst.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of work you are expected to do. Company lies to you, managers are absent, training is not good, no over time but they expect the world, understaffed, not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care about them, don't belittle people.

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

    Pros

    There are some really good clinicians there (RN's, PT's, etc) that truly care about their patient.

    Cons

    I worked there for approx 8 months. Over that course of time 1/2 of my monthly earned PTO was used for low census. Not all of this was due to low census. A good portion of it was due to poor logistical planning and distribution of resources by upper management.. and I paid (myself) the price. Banner cites core behaviors such as: teamwork, communication, ownership, etc. However, they just cite it. For each of their "core behaviors" they pride themselves on I could cite multiple examples of the opposite exhibited by management, coworkers, etc. Also there are many employees that do as little as possible during their home visit. How exactly is a PT supposed to accomplish anything or demonstrate patient care when they are at the patient house for 21 minutes? Banner likes these employees though. If Banner offered me $150k/yr I still would not go back to work for them! They are THE WORST organization I have ever worked for!

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.... aka "core behaviors." Own and acknowledge Banner mistakes. Treat your employees with respect and put yourself in their shoes..... instead of living in your "glass box" of an office and not worrying about their concerns... because those concerns dont affect your paycheck. If you want a lower turnover ratio (which is one the management goals for Home Health) then support your employees.... and stop just caring about the # of Stars rating by CMS.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits (since you are working for a healthcare company), steady work (if you live in AZ, which is a retirement state).

    Cons

    Salary - Your best bet at getting paid well is to get the best starting salary possible. After you get hired, any and all wage increases will be negligible, regardless of job performance. In my case, I had been with the company for a number of years getting "exceeds expectations" on all of my yearly reviews, and got a whopping 35 cent per hour increase. Meanwhile, a new guy gets hired on (who later winds up being a terrible employee) and his starting wage was $4 more than what I was making after being with the company for several years with exceptional job performance.

    Advice to Management

    At least TRY to keep your good talent. As it stands, you have people employed at your company that are constantly looking outward. Take a look at your nurses. Those who can are jumping over to Dignity Health because they not only pay their nurses better, they TREAT the better too.

    Pros

    Relationships. The compassion toward patients. Amazing management. People work well together. Setting goals to increase patient care. Non discriminatory. Making the workplace fun.

    Cons

    Pay. Rules that are broken. The hospital tries to get patients in and out as fast as possible. Sometimes there is too much for one person to do so it can be overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Raise pay.
