    I have been working at Allina Health part-time (more than an year)


    The biggest reason I'm still here is because they highly support my education. I'm in nursing school, and they've been so flexible with my school schedule and supportive. Staying with Allina will hopefully make it easier to get a job once I've finished my nursing degree.
    I have a great supervisor and great team to work with - we all care about the same things.
    As a whole - Allina as a company has beliefs and ideals that I believe in as well. Many patients I work with are satisfied with their care as well and that's huge.
    Allina believes in recognizing people who do good work - who exceed expectations - and getting recognition and awards is highly appreciated.
    The pay is good for what I do, although annual raises are low (1-2%).
    If you need benefits - they are very good. Health insurance is affordable, they offer the beFIT credits to lower your premium by living a healthy lifestyle.


    Sick leave and family leave is very difficult. They use "occurrences" and you can only get three in six months. So if I can't make it because my child is sick and daycare won't let him come in, that's one occurrence. Leaving early, coming in late is half an occurrence. It's really hard to keep it within only three in six months when it's the winter months and you and your family are sick or there are snow storms. It's hard when you have a family to consider. I have great attendance and would never call in unless it was truly justified, but the occurrences make it very stressful.
    There are several policies that don't contribute to a positive working environment - at least in my department - and that makes the job hard to appreciate. While I have a good direct supervisor, it's luck of the draw whose team you get placed on and they're not all as great as my supervisor.
    Lastly, moving up to a new position is highly competitive. Several in my department have tried to apply for promotions or even just to a different position and they're always beat out by someone else.
