  1. "Mixed Feelings"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in West Burlington, IA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in West Burlington, IA
    Neutral Outlook

    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.

    Current Employee - IT Department in West Burlington, IA

    Pros

    Stable company. Great, compassionate and caring Senior Management team. Company overall is great. IT department is where the issues are.

    Cons

    Nowhere to go in IT. No growth or advancement opportunities. Pay is inferior. IT not well respected in the organization. IT leadership very stifling and does not show appreciation. Do not feel valued. Continued education is virtually nonexistent. No standards or policies, every request is handled on a case by case basis. IT has good old boys club mentality. Much favoritism even with filling open positions.

    Advice to Management

    Truly evaluate IT leadership, hold accountable. Expect same level of professionalism, care, compassion, EXCEL values and team work out of IT leader the same as other department leaders.

    Positive Outlook

    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.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Great River Health Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great location, good coworkers.

    Cons

    Upper and middle management plays games and uses tricky tactics. Health system dismisses employees for health reasons. While employed here a co-worker lost their job for running out of FMLA-they had cancer. Another in that department had major surgeries, they got rid of that employee too.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate "bully" directors. Hold management accountable. Management over the financial department is in need of desperate review.
