    I worked at Parkview Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    *Starting position to enter the Administration sector of the machine
    *Easy to get advancements or change to new deapartments
    *Decent benefits

    Cons

    *High turnover rate
    *Strict attendance policy even if you are sick with doctors note
    *Never understood how a hospital would rather you be sick and work when you affect the patients coming and going
    *No matter how many years you work in the roll you wont advance past 13/hour
    *Bottom of the totem poll position. You feel it.
    *Constant changes and new policies added. May be small but it all adds up. For what you are paid, not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to add on more and more thats fine. But pay the worker. Great company to examplify how Machines can get away with taking advantage of the "little man".

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good benefits, great name recognition locally

    Cons

    Management style less than stellar-it seemed like there was no support for new leaders, just given a set of keys and best wishes as you struggled to learn your new role.

    Pros

    Great experiences and good learning opportunities. I have learned so much here. The benefits are the best I have found in the area. So much potential.

    Cons

    -Cronyism rules king here so better like having your nose covered in brown to get beyond where you start at. Do not rock the boat or you won't be able to transfer departments either.
    -The rules are not standardized and based on the whims of supervisors.
    -Pay raises are not based off of merit either but some committee that decides how much your department gets.

    Advice to Management

    -Standardize the rules via your lackluster and underutilized HR Department.
    -Send a clear message to leaders to improve their promotion process and even take it out of their hands and have an impartial selection group complete the decision.
     -Make sure your leaders are using the tools you give them at your leadership meetings, instead of it looking like a under desk light bulb changing session where nothing changes or improves just swirls further down the drain.
    -There is so much potential being driven out the doors by the leaders playing games.

    Pros

    Great benefits with flexible hours and lots of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    there is a Lack of communication between management and cooks.

    Advice to Management

    post any changes that happen in the department on a board because there are always changes happening but they do not always get relayed to everyone.
