    I worked at ValleyCare Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There used to be but valleycare has changed from the way it was when I started there.

    Cons

    No bonuses or raises. When issues arise management like to make it public with an department so retaliation occurs when taken to HR they do nothing about it. They never tell you good job it's only focused on what you can fix. When I was with the company I had a 99% accuracy. They only brought up the 1% wrong. They tried to incorporate a process of recognition but it became pointless and meaningless when they said you couldn't get it more than once because they had to get it to everybody in the department. They teach their staff it is better to snitch on everyone than work as a team. And they never back you up when there are complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees. Listen to your employees. Give those who do a good job some sort of actual recognition. A $5 gift card to the coffee cart doesn't cut it. Don't play favoritism. Let your staff move forward based on their experience and not their ability to brown nose.

    I have been working at ValleyCare Health System full-time

    Pros

    Amazing staff who have stuck it out, even in the face of uncertainty. Folks who are able to provide amazing care to patients with equipment that is falling apart.

    Cons

    While the environment pre-merger was bad, it has gotten toxic post-merger. Administration claims to support staff but the actions do not back them up. At least under the prior administration there was a sense of humanity in the way staff were treated, all that is gone.

    There used to be a family feel, and strong support among the Director level team, but that has been completely eroded and the "C" suite does not believe that there is any measure of importance in peer support.

    Merger selection was a horrible choice. While the name of Stanford is flashy and was impressive, the organization has no idea how to work with or operate a community based facility. What was amazing about the organization will slowly fade away. Any of the other choices among the different organizations that focus on community organizations would have been a much better choice.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck. Support your staff and leadership because many of them are looking to leave.
