Excellent healthcare system with many specialties
Document Coordinator (Former Employee), La Crosse, WIOctober 7, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, generous pto and benefit package
Cons: parking
Large organization that catered the the well being of people at a regional level. Sometimes reporting to different departments that didn't share the same vision. However, all- in-all an experience I never regretted in my work career.

evaluations
employee (Current Employee), employeeAugust 23, 2014
Pros: work with wonderful hard working peers
Cons: hr dept not there to help you. disengaged supervisor
Be self motivated for your own self interest:
Frequent employee evaluations should be done rather than yearly evaluations.
The Employee should ask for & insist on an every 4 month evaluation from their supervisor.
also ask for every 4 month peer evaluation:
If evaluations are not positive then in your own self interest be motivated to move to a different – more... area or job.
Also, remember human resources dept works for Gundersen not for the employee. – less

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), La Crosse, WIJuly 24, 2014
I work in the float pool so I've worked with many different populations of patients including mental health, pediatrics, surgical, oncology, cardiopulmonary, etc. I help take care of patients during their stay in the hospital and help them maintain their independence.

Horrible place to work.
Diet Aide (Current Employee), La Crosse, WIMay 22, 2014
Kitchen is run horribly. Management has no idea what they are doing or how to treat their workers. Makes it a miserable place to work.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee), La Crosse, WIMay 6, 2014
Pros: variety and autonomy, connecting with people.
Cons: burn out happens quickly without strong support from the organization.
Work 4 day a week including every 3rd weekend and on call. I learned a tremendous amount about nursing, patients, coworkers, delegating, prioritizing, communicating and nursing proceedures. The hardest part of the job is not always being appreciated or understood by management. The most enjoyable part is working the the many different people, especially – more... the patients and their families. It is very gratifying to me to make people feel better and to calm worries. – less

Gundersen Health
Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee), La Crosse, WIFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: poor management structure, high insurance costs, no dining options for night staff
While working at Gundersen Health System there are many opportunities for advancement in most departments, though turn over isn't overly high, Gundersen is dedicated to making advancements in technology and patient care, so new positions are created. This is excellent news for the people who are hired for those positions, however, the way HR works is – more... more than concerning. Many people who should have been chosen for positions are passed over because they aren't friends with the right people. People who are more qualified for positions, who have earned positions, are not hired for them if they don't' win popularity contests with the right group.

Gundersen Health System is a great place to receive healthcare, however, with management changes and a lost idea of what's important, that's changing. Patients can hear staff complaining about their job right outside their rooms, there aren't even people at desks to help you in the new hospital so patients and visitors have to wander around to find somebody when they need something, and there is a constant sense of chaos and unhappiness that is felt by the patients. Gundersen was always where I wanted to work when I was growing up and going to school, now it's not a place I wish to remain associated with.

You used to have to have compassion, work ethic, and education to at Gundersen Health - that is no more the atmosphere. One of their clinical managers only has a high school diploma, that used to be a position that was held by a person who not only worked hard at work, but also had the drive to earn an education. It's very odd that this organization chooses to hire employees with no education when most healthcare organizations are hiring candidates with more education, this is possibly one of the reasons their moral has slipped and employees expectations of themselves has dropped. – less

Community & Preventive Care Services Intern (Current Employee), La Crosse, WINovember 17, 2013
As an intern, the other members of the department are open and willing to share as much information as possible to ensure that you have a great experience. The most enjoyable part of the internship has been getting to know everyone and not having to sit at a desk all day.
