    I worked at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Room for advancement. Good hours. Some helpful staff. Always something to be done so you definitely do not get bored

    Cons

    Very clicky. Management favors certain employees. Pay not competitive. Benefits could be better. Staff not very welcoming to new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should treat all staff the same and not pick and choose favorites. Managers should pay more attention to all staff and not single out others.

    I worked at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I found the people were very friendly & helpful. Including the doctors. It gave you a real sense of being part of a team.

    Cons

    I felt that middle management was expected to attend too many meetings. It was difficult to accomplish all the other things you wanted to get done some days.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, nice workspace, and nice people for the most part. There are lots of recreational events throughout the year.

    Cons

    The office culture can be a little "catty" and we have a high turnover. Ever since Ascension has come into the picture Management has gotten a lot stricter and more "by the book".

    I have been working at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job is not difficult and you do get to talk to patients all day, which I do love. You work independently most of the time and can manage your own daily schedule.

    Cons

    Job is boring, sitting at office all day, leadership lacking. I feel as though I don't impact patients enough and would rather have a more meaningful encounter with patients.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and conduct exit surveys. Treat employees better and keep them in the loop. Common courtesy goes a long way.

    Pros

    Good training. Dedicated employees. Faith-based mission history.

    Cons

    Too much transition and change in leadership at top. Thousands in area can say " I once worked at St....." All were painfully let go, downsized, etc. Now, acquired under another healthcare system, will there be more changes.

    Advice to Management

    Look back to mission more in decisions.

    I have been working at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I believe there is a good working environment and the company holds good values. Overall, I have been happy working for this company.

    Cons

    The pay is average to what you will find in the local area. I do wish they paid a little better.

    Advice to Management

    A packet of general things to know as a provider would be beneficial since we only have orientation with the general group.
