    I have been working at Great River Health Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Genuine desire to provide the best possible care to their patients. Always promotes healthy choices for employees and patients. Great support for community projects.

    Cons

    Communication between management and staff is challenging. Trying to do lore with less is always a trial and growing pains are hard to overcome.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at this time.

    I have been working at Great River Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    Information everyone needs to know about illness, growing older and hospitals as well as Medicare and Medicaid knowledge that is beneficial to have and understand.

    Strong team in many different ways.

    Excellent pay and benefits

    Cons

    - Long work hours
    - Unrealistic work expectations due to lack of appropriate staff, favoritism shown to staff who may exhibit bad attitudes, lack of motivation and while other staff is openly criticized for small mistakes but posses can-do attitudes/ willingness to learn, and lack of evaluation of processes and process improvement.

    Advice to Management

    More positive feedback needed, more serious evaluations of performance of team members (one team member seeing 30 patients a day versus one seeing 5 which happens very frequently), more interest in the staff that work so hard for the hospital to run well and the patients to get the care they need. More leadership there to support when staff calls in or caseload gets too busy to handle.

    Pros

    great work environment and people to be around.

    I have been working at Great River Health Systems part-time

    Pros

    Great Pay! Good Benefits! Union for nurses! PTO is great. They believe in education and will help you with that- loans, grants, flexible scheduling, mentors.

    Cons

    PTO starts after probation not day one. Most managers are over stressed causing staff to be stress. Working short is always a downer.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the nursing staff more.

    I worked at Great River Health Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, and a good atmosphere and work environment for the most part.

    Cons

    10-15% below national (and regional) average salary wise, and rarely promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    "Take care of your own" and turnover will decrease drastically! Actions speak louder than words.
