Pros: managment is flexible about "personal life" needs, pay is good, benefits are good, employees are appreciated.
Cons: healthcare is constantly changing and regulations force changes for the workforce, if you are not flexible or a hard worker, healthcare might not be for you
As a progressive community hospital that has remained strong when other community hospitals have struggled, Evangelical is a challenging place to work. For an employee who really wants to work hard and be appreciated for the effort - this is the place to work. Employees who just want to get by or barely meet acceptable work ethics - this might not be the place to work.
The co-workers are friendly and the Hospital as a whole is welcoming to patients. There is an expectation of all employees, even those in non-clinical positions to make patients and visitors have the best possible experience.
The management and executive offices make a point to visit departments and ask for input about what is working and what is not working. Since working here for a year, I have received numerous emails of appreciation from higher levels thanking me for my efforts and at least two cards sent to my home as a thank you. This type of recognition is something I haven't experienced at other institutions and are a great way to keep me motivated to do my work.
The benefits are good, the pay scale is good, and the fairness of the scale is exceptional. If the hospital does well we share in the results through bonuses. The HR staff goes above and beyond to hold employee appreciation events.
This is a great place to work.
