    Pros

    I had great co-workers, plus flexible hours.

    The pay is slightly below the average. Little advancement opportunity. Since the merger attempts, I felt the company had gotten very hectic and lacking direction.

    I worked at PinnacleHealth System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'd be hard pressed to really think of any for this company currently. Used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    I worked at Pinnacle for over 10 years. I was working there before it was Pinnacle. I worked in various departments gaining experience and knowledge. When a coworker had a friend who wanted my job I was basically harassed daily and my job became totally miserable. When it became obvious to certain staff members I wasn't going to leave my job, that coworker schemed, lied and filed a complaint against me, other coworkers I trusted stuck their head in the sand and wouldn't support me! I was professionally humiliated and harassed by Pinnacle and upper management until I quit the stable job my young son and family depended upon. All so a friend could work there. After I left I received threatening letters telling me if I took anything from my office, I didn't, I'd better return it since it belongs to Pinnacle.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who makes outlandish accusations! The upper management involved in my situation was later involved in a rather public, embarrassing police sting.
    People lie to get ahead. This building is a prime example of favoritism, mismanagement, and poor work quality.
