Occupational Medicine Program Manager (Former Employee), Fargo, North DakotaJanuary 2, 2015
Structure and flexibility created the environment necessary to help people excel. Some of the most satisfying results were realized after changing existing operations, creating efficiencies in areas such as the electronic health record.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Duluth, MNDecember 25, 2014
A typical day at Essentia health would include: taking vitals, assisting patients with daily cares, assisting nurses with various tasks, answering call lights to assist patients, cleaning and stocking various supplies. I have learned a lot from working for this facility. My knowledge on medical terms and how-to's has expanded enormously. The management at this hospital are great! They do a wonderful job of meeting with employees and hearing their needs and concerns. My co-workers are a joy to work with. They are very team- oriented and everyone is willing to help out and care for the patients. The hardest part of the job is seeing someone with so much life and potential, be so sick and spiral downwards. The most enjoyable part of this job is that I get to help people and do my best to cure them of their sickness and make their stay at the hospital more positive.

Essentia Health is a a great place to work.
Nutrition Services Worker (Former Employee), Detroit Lakes, MNNovember 24, 2014
Pros: free food, great co-workers, and fun job.
At Essentia Health I was responsible for preparing meals for residents of the assisted living buildings, cleaning up the meals, delivering meals to hospital patients, completing inventory sheets, answering phones to take meal orders, and keeping a great attitude. The most enjoyable part of the job was visiting with the residents and hospital patients while bringing them their meals, the hardest part of the job was having to deal with people who called in and left you to work the shift alone.

This is how I observed my job
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Brainerd, MNAugust 22, 2014
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: poor management
I always enjoyed working with the patients. Management was not to fair, they played favorites and if they did not want you to work there they would find some reason to fire people. A typical day was patient care, groups and one to ones with patients. I learned many things about mental illness and specific disorders and medication and how you treat it. Had great co-workers most everyone pitched in and got the job done together. Crisis situation when a patients behavior was out of control and hand to be handled with hands on, always a danger of some getting hurt. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with patients and seeing them get well.

Essentia Health has a negative work environment.
Patient Care (Current Employee), Duluth, MNJuly 28, 2014
Pros: helping patients develop safe discharge plans, arranging services and accommdations
Cons: management style is not conducive to a positive work environment
The most enjoyable part of the job is providing services to the patients and their families. The hardest part is that overtime, management style has allowed the work environment to become nonconducive to cooperative working. Intimidation is common. Employees have been disciplined for unfounded accusations and it is difficult to ask for any help. I have wonderful co-workers that are supportive and honest but there are co-workers that are not. I advise you not to seek employment here

I work from 8 - 4:30 in a business office setting. I use a computer and EPIC. I have a wonderful manager who gives me new and challenging jobs that take some of the burden off other co-workers. It has allowed me to learn and explore EPIC.

beware of essential health
RN (Current Employee), Duluth, MNMarch 26, 2014
Pros: it you need a paycheck it is a job
Cons: very tough place to work at.
Management has become quite oppressive due to major money problems, cutting corners and costs at every level. They have recently started coming down heavy on any sick calls. New director of nursing of questionable value. Doctors are all burned out and overworked. They were told they had to produce more. Many are leaving. Our department is a skeleton of what it used to be. Financial intake has come to a standstill . Patients are transferring to St. Lukes for better care.. Most employees are stuck at this hospital as it is only 1 of 2 in the city. Moral is very low. My guess is there will be major changes in the very near future. Hospital used to be in top 100??? don’t know how that happened but they lost it and will never get it back because it is sliding into the abyss.

I loved working at Essentia Health.
RT(R) (Former Employee), Duluth, MNJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: great training, perfect fit for me, new friendships
Cons: management gave no warning or counseling before termination, parking was very challenging
There was great training and support involved at Essentia among the co-workers. Being a perfectionist, I wanted to spend as much of my time training in the OR, my primary hired responsibility, while I was in training. I have learned to keep the lines of communication open with my supervisors as there were some misunderstandings of what was expected of me and some trouble learning the parking challenges.

feel like im in prison
this is funny ,,,,,so you can fire me (Former Employee), dlthDecember 1, 2013
Pros: co-workers, and job
Cons: no backup or support, your at the mercy of your manager and superviser, they can do what they want no matter what you do union wise or l.r. wise its sad
worked here for over 8 years,management is encouraged to treat you like a loser,and make you feel beneath them, when in fact everyone else greets you with a smile and knows your name and thanks you for you work.......i think its sad that mangement can bully you and get away with it if they dont want you there they do try to get rid of you.......

Overall a good organization to work for.
Program Manager (Former Employee), Duluth, MNNovember 17, 2013
I always had more work to complete than hours in the day. This was the norm for this organization for any management/salaried position. My co-workers were wonderful and hard working people that I have great respect for. Management had some unrealistic expectations of workload. Management was fair. Hardest part of the job was the amount of work and the hours. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with wonderful people with excellent skill sets.

Laboratory Management is poor.
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), LaboratoryOctober 31, 2013
Pros: good benefits and fair pay.
Cons: micromanagement of some employees and general poor management style.
Majority of coworkers are great to work with. Management is not cohesive. Supervisor doesn't think independently allowing some subordinates special privileges. She allows tattlers to influence her decisions. Poor judgement and weak skill set.

I was told by our d.o.n. That if people would quit having children & going to school we wouldn't have scheduling problems. They have no respect for family or self health! Very poor values
