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

    Pros

    I like the food they serve

    Cons

    Due to management constantly either firing or causing people to resign the department is always shortstaffed. Those of us who remain carry an unrealistic workload, we all work as hard as we can, but sometimes it is just too overwhelming. When we start to burnout this is the time we will be yelled at and belittled by the leadership. Then after you've done all you can and worked harder then you've ever worked, you'll make a small mistake while burned out from the work, and you will be terminated. Sound like a great place to work?

    PS.
    Dont go to HR for help, they %100 side with management everytime

    Advice to Management

    You dont realize nor do you care just how hard we work everyday, you micromanage and belittle us over small things

    Pros

    Some entities are still non-profit, although most aren't. No risk of being outsourced.

    Cons

    Compensation is lowest in the area, all 4 areas I have worked in have been chronically under-staffed and management doesn't care, quoting some ridiculous budget. Staff - level employees are not heard at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff

    Pros

    nice facility with great services

    Cons

    Bullying and corruptness within management, senior leadership, HR. Money is the root of all evil and it consumes this hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Management and senior leadership. I worked at Renown prior to the name change and during the entire transition from Washoe to Renown, up until 2012. In my role as patient access/financial counseling, my job was to assist those patients who had difficulty paying their bills and helping them find assistance in alleviating that stress. However, after the name change that quickly changed and money became more of a focus. They encouraged us to share our opinions on what could help us as a department to meet our "monthly goal" in collections. Myself as well as a few other employees (who were also long time employees before new management came in) stated that there were situations that weren't exactly compassionate when entering a patients room to collect money for their stay, especially in ICU and areas that patients were on comfort care, etc. Because these managers didn't like those opinions, we were transferred out of a department and a position we had been in for years. For someone like me who once loved her job and looked forward to going to work, the bullying and harassment from asinine racial allegations (of which I'm married to that race I was accused of ) from a disgruntled former coworker, to the eminent bulls eye I placed on my back the moment I stated that it wasn't right for me to go into a room of someone who is dying to get their copay.

    You should consider what your pee-ones have to say, they are the backbone of the company and anytime a former employee claims bullying, you should look into it a bit deeper rather than siding with HR and lower management (the ones who are the problem). You'd realize you lost some great, loyal employees who loved their jobs and wanted to make it better.
