    Pros

    It's difficult to come up with something positive other than some of the people I interacted with on a daily basis in clinics, hospitals and office settings.

    Cons

    Low wages, hiked up benefit costs, lack of respect, responsibility in Sr. Management and Corporate Management especially HIMS. Peter Fine doesn't care about employees, just the money. Sr. Management is busy hiring their friends and family members for positions they are not qualified or certified for but no one is supposed to notice. They would not know the truth if it slapped them in the face. Be prepared to be thrown under the bus if you come to work here. It is a shame there are so many incompetent people hired when some other people could do a far better job. Don't be too efficient because that will be held against you too. You make the higher ups look bad since they spend so much time on PTO and allow important things to fall through the cracks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A moot point. They never listen. They are never around to listen. PTO is where you will find them and when they are around they are too busy for you.

    Pros

    Nice local staff, ok salaries

    Cons

    Tyrants running the show at headquarters in AZ. Unbelievable. Turnover is huge, and they are walking RN's out, increasing ratio's, hiring non clinical staff and foreign nurses to fill spaces to save money. Was told AZ hates RN's, they are offering 10K sign on bonuses in AZ for RN's but are being blackballed by the RN's there because of there reputation. Yeah there quality numbers look good, but I question data. Don't care about employee's, your lucky to have a job. Benefits suck, tell you they pay for school and they employer match, and then tell you after they hire you that it takes a year. Its tuff out there, but stay clear, they are creating an artificial RN shortage so they can justify cheap foregin nurses. Gross. Run RN's!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are top heavy. Read the book flattening the pyramid, or lean out your fat cat corporate office. When I saw clinical people being layed off for "optimization" and you are flying corporate people to arizona for christimas parties? Have some integrity, get rid of the chronic employee abusers. I think you have more lawyers than clinical people, think your going to need them. See how your patient satisfaction scores look after people can't understand their nurses. Really the absolute worst. Shame on you. Its like the 70's fat cat club at headquarters. UNIONIZE RN'S!

    Pros

    My immediate manager is a great person, a good therapist and is in touch with his staff, he trusts his staff and is supportive. Upper management has shown good efforts to listen and respond to staff input.

    Cons

    Healthcare is changing and reimbursement is changing, cutting costs is rough at times and not always done in pretty ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep your decisions/plans as transparent as possible and share this with staff on all levels so we can support those decisions at the base and work together.

    Lazy and Inept Senior Management

    Former Employee - PBO  in  Greeley, CO (US)
    Former Employee - PBO in Greeley, CO (US)

    Pros

    Some people are genuinely nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Either you support whatever senior management wants (drink the koolaid) or you will be the odd man out and severely berated unfairly. If you are "too efficient" that is considered a ding. People are overworked and underpaid, under valued and you have to be a "Yes" person to survive. Banner fancies itself the "final word" beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair--a new concept and appreciate your people rather than run them ragged. Get a new wig.

    Big corporation with big problems.

    Former Employee - Network Analyst in Greeley, CO (US)

    Pros

    It used to be the people until the corporation took over. The medical plan is expensive but it's great coverage. They have an onsite gym and cafe. They have an onsite coffee shop that sells gourmet coffee. The facilities are well kept and constantly being updated which is typical in hospitals.

    Cons

    In Greeley it's all about who you know, not what you know. There are some real bad directors that should be removed. The pay grades aren't consistent across the regions. People in AZ are promoted and paid a lot more. The Greeley IT Directors make up role summaries to fit their friends. They set the bar very high and require nice to have qualifications. The AZ IT staff gets praised and promoted for jobs well done not for passing a Microsoft test.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Create lines of communication between the AZ HR and Colorado employees. Complaints don't make it to AZ. The locals all watch out for each other and look the other way at bad management skills.
