    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ellis Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As long as you do your job with no mistakes management will leave you alone.

    Cons

    -Managers have no clue how to effectively run their departments. Constantly in meetings and can never be reached when you need them.
    -Horrible patient care in almost every office due to being short staffed and employees overworked.
    -Use of to many computer system that are not really compatible with one another.
    -Billing department has no clue about insurances and how to bill for services accurately. They would rather send out collection notices then correct their mistakes and keep patients in the crossfire.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and actually learn the work that they do, without them you're nothing. Always reprimand but never congratulate on a job well done, you always look at the negatives. Upper management has no clue how their "great ideas" affect the place in a very negative way. Upper management always get bonuses while staff go years in between with no raise.

    I worked at Ellis Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some staff was great to work with

    Cons

    Overall hospital policy was not outstanding, much of the hospital is not overly clean. Support staff is not well respected nor compensated adequately and overall short staffing departments leads to higher employee burn outs.

    Advice to Management

    don't count on it!

    People are nice, flexible hours and tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with skills and looking for growth rather than hiring those without skills and to save a dollar.

    Nice environment. Friendly staff for the most part

    HR sucks! Good luck trying to transfer to another department even if you have college education!

    HR needs to step up their game and STOP lying to employees!

    Pros

    Benefits - no compays for in house services with excellent monthly benefits

    Cons

    Low pay, no incentives,poor leadership, poor training. Employees have a hard time investing in the place when they don't feel invested in.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff. Encourage them, listen to them and don't bring them down. Lead rather than dictate. Be open to learning and growing with your team.

    I worked at Ellis Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ellis will help you gain necessary experience in the healthcare industry and allow for you to meet plenty of people. The hospital has undergone several improvements and office space is spacious and nice. Managers provide flexibility to working hours. The hospital provides some formal training if you need it. Working as a technician or nurse allows you to see many people.

    Cons

    The food in the cafeteria leaves much to be desired. Do not expect to advancing up the ladder quickly, but hard work and putting in added effort can help facilitate a growing career at Ellis. Work can sometimes become boring and be very repetitive especially in administrative support roles (Finance, Statistics, Human Resources, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    The company is dedicated on service and quality, but there needs to be more communication between physicians and management (without medical experience) to further understand the complexities of the healthcare industry.
