I worked at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pay was great. Benefits were okay, getting less and less as the years went on. Early on in my career there it was great! Fun staff to work with and very flexible.

Cons

The transcription department specifically at Gundersen Lutheran was very inflexible and treated us a factory workers instead of educated individuals work with confidential and important medical information. It was production, production, production and no care for quality. No other department within that system works this way. They have now eliminated most of the transcriptionists and are outsourcing their work to a transcription company. All very money oriented.

Advice to Management

Very poor running of a very important department. I know the quality is gone now from that aspect of the clinic and as a patient I would be worried about what is actually going into my medical record.

    Be more open to hiring other managers other then nurses.

    Pros

    That you are employed and have an income thats about all I can think of at this point in time

    Cons

    Greed is rearing its ugly head. They are always emphasizing the importance of the patients but they dont stop and think the employees are a big percentage of their patients
