    I have been working at Franciscan Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment in a reputable hospital. Franciscan Health Indianapolis is an excellent place to start working if your end goal is to be a nurse or some other form of a health professional.

    Cons

    In the pharmacy as a nationally certified pharm tech, the starting pay is low compared to other in-patient pharmacies however I've been told we have a higher hourly cap then other pharmacies ($19/hr not including shift differentials).

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have a more grassroots approach to resolve issues and/or concerns. Some management does do this but overall I would day it is poor.
