I worked at Aurora Health Care part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It was close to home. Co-workers very nice. Great hours. Great patients!

Cons

Management was the biggest challenge. I worked at Aurora over 10 years. A laboratory supervisor made working for Aurora impossible. She fired more employees for trivial things during the past 5+ years than my other 10 years. Morale in the outpatient lab area is terrible with little appreciation from management for the professional hard working staff. Advancement opportunities are very limited. Personnel always stay in the mid range of their pay scales and never approach the top. Aurora is staffing clinic positions with Medical Assistants instead of more qualified RN's to save money, however there is no savings to patients.
Providers (Dr.'s, Nurse Practitioners) told to keep referrals in-house, even though there are many good/better specialist outside of Aurora. It's all about money!

Advice to Management

HR in Milwaukee should take a hard look at the number of firings and terminations in the outpatient area of their laboratory clinics. Compare one region with the next and you might find a bit of information concerning the Oshkosh/Neenah area. It takes a long time to train new personnel let alone the cost.

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

    Pros

    Large system with good training/education resources. Unit staff is a good group and I enjoy working with them.

    Cons

    Definitely treated like a number sometimes. Don't value employee contributions and extra effort.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is just a face, no effort to get to know employees or what they want. The health insurance is HORRIBLE; expensive, forced to use Aurora, and end up spending a lot extra on top of premiums for any services.


  2. "Learned a lot"
