I worked at Community Health Network (Indiana) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It was close to where I live and relatively safe environment but.........

Cons

The place doesn't have any respect for their older, long time employees and they began laying off these people under the guise of "phased retirement" whatever that means. It means that if you are close to 62 and you've been there enough time to get your traditional pension then you were phased into retire whether you wanted to or not.

Advice to Management

Well when I was there, and I was laid off in 2010, there were 9 CEO's running around in there probably pulling down millions in salaries and golden parachutes. And the rest of us were thrown under the bus. I would still be working, I'm only 64 but the place decided I needed to go with 800 other older baby boomers. Pretty callous and now the layoffs are hitting LPN's here in 2013. I have a neighbor and her sister, who is 58 and there 36 years is getting the axe in Sept 15th. There are making her work until that time and then she will get her severance. At least when they laid me off I got my severance without having to come in and still work. How humiliating!!!!

    I worked at Community Health Network (Indiana) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are all very nice facilities, with high quality customer service. Definitely the place to go... as a customer that is.

    Cons

    Worked there for two years, no write ups, missed only one day of work in all that time, and still couldn't get prime hours. Repeatedly watched others get hired in with the hours I had asked for and was given no reason as to why I (or any of the other employees who wanted these hours) didn't get the hours. Talked to MANY employees in MANY areas of the hospital that were very unhappy with management and the way things were being done.

    Also, it was nearly impossible to find an opening to even try to move up. And management (in the cafe at least) is under a different employer, so there was no way to move up into any of those positions.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees, especially when they're all saying the same things.
