PSS (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – May 19, 2016
Gundersen was a great organization as a whole but way too many chiefs and not enough Indians. I found that a lot of the nurses were whiny and unapproachable at times. I also found out the hard way that management doesn't keep their promise when it comes to hours and are a bit shady to say the least.
The girls you work with were outstanding
Parking, no employee discount on lunches or gift shops
RN (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – September 18, 2015
Gundersen Health System is an excellent healthcare organization. They treat their employees well and provide good benefits. Work life balance is good as they don't require mandatory overtime and are respectful with your schedule. My co-workers were great and very supportive and management listened to our concerns.
Health Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – March 18, 2016
Stressful environment, however coworkers worked seamlessly together to help reduce the stress. most enjoyable part of the job was making friendships that last a lifetime. Worst was the job itself, the stress and the frequent management turnovers
RECEPTIONIST (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – May 12, 2016
Fast paced and co-workers are wonderful resources. Most will help you through tough situations. The hardest part is handling any angry individuals but that is to be expected in healthcare. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make an impact in individual lives within job duties.
Employees willingness to help each other out. Advancement within the organization. Job security.
I can't believe the management is allowed to continue to intimidate employees. Many have left which should be a red flag.
Nutrition Services Aide (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – April 22, 2016
It's rewarding to work with patients The employees are a diverse group to work with, The work goes by quickly. Too many meetings for me. I enjoyed my co-workers, but the management is not professional. They lead by intimidation.
Claims Supervisor (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 6, 2016
Gundersen was an excellent place to work. The training was fantastic, the team was professional, and culture was caring. Gundersen wants to see their employees succeed! Biggest mistake of my life was to leave Gundersen for a position that was offering me a few thousand more dollars. I'm hoping to get back into GHS soon.
Gundersen Health Systems Volunteer (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – March 8, 2016
I really enjoy volunteering at Gundersen. All the people I get to work around are some of the best people I know. The best part about volunteering there is being able to help those who need help. There was never anything truly difficult about volunteering at Gundersen.
6 Dollars for lunch, Volunteer days, appreciation for help
Scheduling Specialist Responsibilities (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – February 2, 2016
A typical day for me is scheduleing patient for appoinments and answer phone call from patients. I interact with Dr. and help them schedule. I enjoy my co-workers Hardest part of my job is scheduling patient in a timely manner.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Onalaska, WI – January 14, 2016
The most enjoyable part about my job are the patients I help and my immediate co-workers. We work so well as a team and collaborate very well about the daily almost hourly changes we review and learn to practice. We train each other on our daily job requirements.
Enjoyable workplace with mostly supportive co-workers.
Laboratory Support Technician (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 31, 2015
Days can vary from completely dead to outrageously busy, but for the most part staff just have to deal with it. Management is good, at least from what I saw of my supervisors. He listened and did what he could with the higher levels. The staff are friendly for the most part but can at times feel cold. The hardest part of the job is dealing with patients. Entering a room and explaining why you're there only to have them groan in frustration. A joke that the 'vampires are here' was common.
A challenging place to work which entices my innate ability to function in a fast pased workplace
Social Worker/Discharge Planner (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – October 6, 2015
My review is best described in a personal interview. I have achieved much personal growth and satisfaction from working at Gundersen Health System. My husband relocated which is requiring me to job search as well.
Intern (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – April 8, 2015
Everyday was different. I would have several different projects to complete daily. Management agreed with my school schedule and made work flexible to my schedule. My co-workers were always willing to help me if I had a question or needed some advice. Hardest part about the job was leaving, but my connections with my co-workers was most enjoyable.
Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – La Crosse WI – February 26, 2015
GHS prides itself on beauty, boasts it's energy independence, and dotes on it's patients while ignoring employee satisfaction and though there are many avenues to follow to voice concerns and ask for assistance, whey are all tied to the same place and HR at GHS is the biggest problem.
poor management, lack of organizations willingness to improve obvious problems
Assistant (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 21, 2015
Lots of opportunities, but sometimes difficult to move up or around. Seems like a lot of external hires where Gundersen used to hire a lot within. Hard to believe that out of the thousands of people that work there that majority of the open vacancies now are filled by external applicants.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – May 6, 2014
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 the patients and their families. It is very gratifying to me to make people feel better and to calm worries.
variety and autonomy, connecting with people.
burn out happens quickly without strong support from the organization.
