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

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere on the individual floors. Great pay for the area and flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Out of touch management, headquarters is in Duluth and is not employee friendly or convenient if you have issues with benefits. Insurance is horrible. Very little incentive to continue education to higher level.

    Advice to Management

    Need to recognize talent within the organization and stop hiring for management from outside.

    competitive pay across all departments
    high safety standards

    poor organization in the Central region, both departmental and as a whole
    absolutely no organization between regions
    extremely high turnover

    Advice to Management

    If you're management and your own management is in the East region, you know why the employer is difficult to work for. Unless, of course, you're under the kind of management that is organized a a good communicator - which I was not. That's also if you can get past the process of getting hired through the Central (Brainerd) region. It's no secret to anyone whose applied for a position within the last 2 years that the HR department is lacking organization and common courtesy, although that's very few employers these days.
