    I have been working at Hendrick Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hendrick provides me with a great work life balance. The benefits associated are incredible and they offer reduced cost on health insurance based on a wellness screening. I believe that Hendrick cares for my well-being. From employee to employee interaction to the interactions with leadership, I know that I belong here and I am treated with respect every single day. Hendrick has given me opportunities to grow professionally. I love that Hendrick offers a wide variety of opportunities from being involved with Employee Wellness activities to all the ways I can support out local communality through outreaches and fundraisers. Even though I don't have direct patient care, I know that my job and responsibilities influences those who have direct patient care. I know that our Executive Leadership is one that cares about employees and patients and does their very best to make decisions for what is right for Hendrick and Abilene.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot. I would say that Hendrick values their employees opinions and when there is an area for improvement, our Leadership does everything in their ability to make changes and to listen to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give opportunities to people. Thank you for all your hard work.

    Pros

    Great leadership, opportunity to advance and caring co-workers!

    Cons

    Community hospital - low wages. Some Directors lack direction. Lazy employees are rarely fired.

    Advice to Management

    How about setting wages based on 2011 rather than 1995? Everyday the brightest and best are leaving because the rate of pay is as much as 20% below the rate across town at the "other" hospital.

    Pros

    Great working environment. The managers were great, the nursing staff was fun to work with, and many of the PAs and NPs were great to work with too

    Pros

    Wonderful leadership, great benefits, faith-based practice, high expectations for employees, company is growing, long tradition in the Abilene community, high employee engagement

    Growing has its challenges, so make sure to plan well, especially when more people are needed.
