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

Pros

- Involvement in change
 - Make a difference in people's lives
 - Excellent internal corporate communication
 - Senior leadership is present with staff. They aren't just some taking heads.
 - Even younger staff are listened to. Everyone's view matters.

Cons

Sometimes there are too many bureaucratic barriers to staff accomplishing a specific task. Or managers aren't sometimes present in the moment and miss important information that needs to be communicated to staff about organizational change.

Advice to Management

Don't let personal views become obstacles that stand in the way of staff making positive changes for patients.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of open positions at all times and the ability to advance.
    Advancement is typically from within.
    There are education classes available.
    Many locations within the region so there are options to move to the other locations.
    Yearly evaluations with raises.
    Paid time off accrues quickly.

    Cons

    No support from supervisors and there is never two sides to any story.
    Vacation approval is on a seniority basis so you are heavily restricted on the time you can take off.
    Supervisors are not on the floor so they are out of touch of the day to day problems.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so quick to reprimand employees after hearing one side to a situation. Do research and ask about the other side of a situation before moving forward with a reprimand.
    Be more involved with the day to day aspect of the business.
    Be seen and hear open communication.
    Treat everyone equally and fairly- regardless of title and position.

    I worked at Altru Health part-time

    Pros

    Great unit culture. Efficient teamwork. Managers are very flexible with schedules. Very focused on hourly rounding and bedside report.

    Cons

    Some of the best practices you learn in nursing school are not performed at this facility. For an example, sterile field was broken when I saw a nurse insert an IV.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I felt that management was very open to employees and flexible with schedules and PTO.
