    I have been working at UnityPoint Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and sterile processing is a great way to get your foot in the door if you're interested in a career in the medical field

    Cons

    The pay is honestly not very good. Sterile processing is a very important job and very physically demanding. There's also a lot to learn but it's not worth the effort for such low pay when you live on your own and have lots of bills.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay other wise you'll continue to see great people leaving this great place because of financial situations.

    I have been working at UnityPoint Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All of our departments work together at our clinic. Everyone is professional and courteous. Our leaders are involved and truly strive for excellence for our patients!

    Cons

    Not as many perks as other Health care facilities in the area. Example: Outings or recognition for all different professions. We do get a bonus depending on our outcomes for the year, which is awesome! I love my job!

    Advice to Management

    No matter how much we grow remember why we are here and classes and perks are not just for the business office!

    Pros

    Excellent internal growth options for anyone entering the medical field, with both clinical and clerical positions to serve the community.

    Cons

    Aggressively growing within the market so there are times the resources are limited and staffing can be challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Know your job expectations and perform audits for employee functions to ensure you're meeting the needs of both the organization and the providers, as some performance is directly related to physician compensation and the supervisor is responsible for teams capturing that data.

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

    Pros

    Billing Follow up. Being able to work independently. But if you make a mistake you get this in your review and it counts against your average.

    Cons

    Constant Micromanagement, New people get constant babysitting. If you have a question be prepared to get several different answers. Pick one and hope its right. Lots of Gossip and unhappy employees. Favorits come to play in this department, especially for the non productive employee. As for benefits, you pay for your own holidays off and sick leave. 1500 deductible for your medical. 6 holidays off. You buy your own office supplies and there always talking about its not in the budget. Raises are 20 cents a year. Employees that have been there forever are unfriendly. There is lack of team spirit. Focus is the theme they try to enforce, this does not excsist in this Office and that's from management to employees. Once hired be prepared to do all your learning yourself . NO HELP exist once you hit that floor.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your lack of benefits and pay more to keep great talent. Get managers and Supervisors training on team development and how to motivate. Not everyone you promoted is management material. That is why you have such high turnover. Bullying does exsist in your management team. Stop saying you don't have time to help your team because of meetings.

    Pros

    Initial pay is competitive, benefits like paid time off is great, people are friendly

    Cons

    Sometimes there are no raises because the hospital has no money? Seems like that should be something to plan ahead for.

    Manage the money and get the budget under control
