    Pros

    Salary was all I miss. Very poor management.

    Cons

    Poor management, favoring of outgoing and chatty people. Quiet yet very hardworking people will not exceed standards. Management in the laboratory I worked in did not enforce rules fairly or evenly. Chronically late employees were able to exceed standards if they were popular.

    I have been working at Banner Health (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many friendly people depending where you work and quite a few employees that have worked for Banner for years. Working prn is nice for life balance and staffing department employees are helpful. Good orientation and most employees willing to work together and help each other if needed. Computer systems are user friendly. Good communication by most and generally a very good work culture. Clean, well maintained facilities and you have the supplies you need to do your job.

    Cons

    There arent always prn shifts to fill. Friendly to your face personality types stick out and unfortunately most of them have a position where they are in charge or have authority over others. There's a lot of competition for a few job openings so you better like staying where you are. If you do get a regular job, its likely a lateral move, except for the hours. Degrees and certifications are everything so forget about your experience- just keep your pocketbook out and forget about any life you thought you had outside of school.

    I worked at Banner Health full-time (more than an year)

    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!

    I have been working at Banner Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

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

    I worked at Banner Health

    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.
