Procure to Pay Exception Processor II (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 17, 2017
Ascension Health truly cares about their employees and their life outside with their families. The company provides liberal PTO and work/life flexibility. The Ministry Service Center in Indianapolis has a friendly atmosphere, free soda, and lots of volunteer opportunities. Pay is decent but raises are limited or non-existent. Since Ascension is a non-profit, raises are dependent on the budget. Overall, the Ministry Service Center is a great place to work.
Free soda, work/life balance, flexible schedule, great benefits
Non-profit budget constraints, lack of raises, small raises if granted, limited advancement opportunity
Management (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – April 7, 2017
Considering working for them? Don't! Everyone hates working for them including me! Particularly here in Austin, Texas! Ascension is a greedy company that tends to suck the life out of you at work and does not reward their employees. Dysfunctional, policy nonstop reinvention and a lack of stability. They don't care about their employees nor do they care about their patients. All they want is what they can suck out of you!!!! Nurses are quitting left and right and when you talk to other medical staffing from other companies, they'll tell you, that Ascension has a nasty reputation!
The office I'm at is professional, patient centered, with a calming environment.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Grosse Pointe, MI – April 5, 2017
I love coming to a place where the staff works together in ensuring that each patient receives quality personalized care. The physicians do there best to make sure each patient understands and feels comfortable with the care they receive. Overall this company is organized and follow the protocols they have established so that their offices operate smooth and efficiently.
I like having a hour lunch.
I think the healthcare deductibles/Premiums are to expensive.
Most of the associates are really team players there who care about others.
Pharmacy Certified Technician (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – April 3, 2017
I really enjoyed working at this particular hospital, which shows in the length of time I devoted to them. I knew my job well and loved my shift...midnights 7on/7 off. I went through stage 3 breast cancer in 2009-2010 and managed to work full time all through my treatment. My colleagues there were AMAZING and I couldn't have done it w/o the 7 on 7/ off shift.
Sr. Data Management Manager (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 24, 2017
It is a great place to work but with no strong ethics on management. Ascension being one of the largest faith based healthcare firm in the nation, it gives a unique perspective to working at company of this size.
Service Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – March 10, 2017
Great Benefits, good luck trying to get day off though, almost impossible so those great benefits you won't be able to use! Room for advancement but overall for being a Catholic Health Care service would like to see more caring for employees.
CIO/Director (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 15, 2017
Loved working at Ascension while I was there. Very progressive management who strive for operational excellence and achieve it. My only regret was not being able to continue working there due to a hospital sale.

Treasury Management Intern (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 13, 2017
I had a treasury management internship at Ascension Health. Everyone there was very kind and helpful. I learned so much valuable information at my internship and would recommend working there to anyone.
Very unhappy with their communication, customer service, and benefit options
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – February 13, 2017
I have been with the my employer for over 8 years and have never had any problems or concerns until Ascension took over. Myself along with several other employees were miss informed in regards to health insurance options. You cannot call and physically talk to someone. Been calling everyday for two weeks to have a problem solved and cannot get anyone to call me back with a solution.
Program Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 24, 2017
Given what I know now, I still would have accepted the job offer, I would have left six months sooner though. The Shared service center is full of great people but hobbled by executives who would rather hire externally than expend effort to develop salaried staff.
Open Office, Strong Health Benefits, Good People
No visible succession planning or effort at career development for exempt employees.
