      I have been working at Essentia Health full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      They are a reputable company and patient-centered.

      Cons

      It runs like most large corporations. In most circumstances there are too many hands in the pot which makes it hard to accomplish tasks. Lack of communication between departments and in each facility. All locations run differently and have different rules.

      Advice to Management

      Seek input from staff who work with patients. When designing workflow changes, they'll be able to identify potential issues before they arise.

          None, their managed by the higher up and need a job also which treats them exactly why management quits also

          I have been working at Essentia Health full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Plenty of opportunities to work overtime nearly every paycheck. If you can get in it’s a great jumping off point to advance your career in the healthcare field. Flexible for college students.

          Cons

          Be prepared to be exhausted running your tail end off. High stress environment that runs you ragged for a low wage. My specific department has no employee moral boosting. Everyone on the team feels completely worthless to the company and feel like slaves to low wages with increased amount of work that is required of us to do.

          Advice to Management

          Better pay for one. More employees for the department. Find a way to boost employee moral. Without any of the workers this company would be nothing. Employees needed to be treated better.
