assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 19, 2015
I could not continue employment with this corporation because they refused to pay employees a living wage and offered NO job security or mobility Benefits originally offered to buffer low wage were subject within 1 year to significant negative changes. I can't believe it would be considered cost effective to have such a huge turn over vs paying a living wage to retain qualified employees. Baffling???!!!
non- living wage not commensurate with job description, no job security or mobility, non pertinent corporate involvement, increased duties with no wage increases
Disability Case Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – February 22, 2016
The employees are great to work with. Very knowledgeable and sincere. Management was always changing making the work environment a little more challenging. Workloads were extremely heavy due to high turnover rates. The position itself was not too hard but other factors made it appear to be a little more challenging.
Heavy on quality metrics and not enough focus on relationships within organization
Talent Acquisition Partner (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 9, 2015
Heavy workloads and heavy focus on quality metrics. You have to track your work everyday. Promotions appear to be based on relationships with managers and not necessarily work performance. Supervisor is flexible, but work load is still too high. Not enough time to build relationship with managers that we recruit for. Too many steps for each process.
Free fountain drinks, coffee, and option to work from home
Heavy workloads, inadequate PTO, politics, work life balance
Contact Center Agent (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 10, 2015
A typical day at Ascension is full of gossip, ignorance, disorganization, confusion, poor leadership and unprofessionalism. I hate this job but I need the money!!! It's very fly by night. You are overworked and underpaid. The process and procedures are extremely complex, ineffective and inefficient. The Reps are expected to have stellar performance however everything else is mediocre at best. If you voice a concern you are railroaded into some bull. You are offered on salary during the interview process and paid something else when offered the position. During orientation they make it sound like a great place to work but run if you are offered a position. Compensation is not work the headache. Managers dont care about the associates.
Professional workplace with highly intelligent and motivated coworkers

Leave Of Absence Specialist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 18, 2016
Not going to bash the place because it provided me my means of living, but it is not a place I would retire from!!! There is a lot to be said but my dislikes my be someone else's pleasure. If nothing else you can say " At least I have a job" with Ascension.
Get to work from home
micro managing, low pay, bad management, no growth potential, no constant working process, no accountability with upper management.
Productive and fun working environment; respect was a core value of the organization.

Physician (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – June 19, 2015
20 years ago this was the place to be, now its like a place that everyone is trying to leave. I along with alot of others used to love working here, but as they put more nurses in charge of things that they shouldn't be in charge of(like in management positions) this is not the place happy place it used to be everyone I know is looking at leaving from my physician colleagues, all the way down to the PCA's. It is sad that the employees do not seem to matter anymore, and only the almighty dollar matters, and that people put in charge do not listen to reason or pay attention to reality. I enjoy the people I work with, and the patients, I just wish the management would retire or go back to nursing as they should be. It

National Project Lead (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 13, 2012
A typical day at work includes running reports to ensure that projects are on track and directors have the latest information about their projects in their region. It also included ensuring employees access to project management application.
I've learned how to create detail reports using Crystal Report and communicating my findings to associates and directors.
Management was nice and willing to help everyone but was always in competition with other managers.
The hardest part of the job was on-boarding associates to new procedures and practices.
The most enjoyable par the the job is working with people across the United States.
Excellent company to work for that puts its employees first and makes them an integral part of a healthcare team.

Service Desk Technician (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – September 24, 2014
Culture was terrible. If you are going for a job here, make sure you get a morning shift, The afternoon shift is absolutely awful, gossip, and just not a professional environment. If you're looking for a career, this is not the spot, however, if you're looking great benefits, this is the place to be. However, you will need help paying the bills unless your married.
