Urgent Care is busy. The staff is pretty nice. There’s always a few who are bad apples.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It’s a nice place to start your career. Big company but takes care of the employees and is inclusive to all people. The pay is ok. They try to stay competitive. If your looking for top of the line money, then LTC but you’ll work for it. So I’ve been told. I’m a new LPN.


Pay is ok. The people are nice. They take the time to train you.


It’s very busy and breaks are hard to get. Pay is ok.

Very toxic Place to work. If you enjoy drama and being in a high school environment this is the place for you. Management supports these types of behaviors.




Being Bullied by co-workers and management who supports it.

Great management and support

Able to adjust my schedule when I needed. Management very supportive of your needs. I loved working there. Only reason why I left is because I moved out of the area.


Very supportive management and co-workers


Nothing really

Great place to work. Great tuition reimbursement and benefits.It was stressful to work during beginning of the pandemic. My supervisors are very supportive.


Flexible schedule if needed

Done with corporate healthcare.

I enjoyed my job to an extent and luckily had a great team to work alongside. Supervisor valued me and I gained a lot of experience in my role. Corporate healthcare as a whole is definitely headed for complete destruction, though. Between extreme staffing shortages and burnout (which has been made even worse because of the C19 vax mandate), poor pay, meager benefits, and ridiculous administration who have no regard for the principles this company is supposedly proud to stand on, I’m so glad I finally walked away.




Stress, pay, benefits, higher ups, and staffing.

South Holland site is horrible

The management team at the South Holland location is ridiculous! They are allowed to pencil whip and treat their staff poorly! The CNS does not know what she’s doing at all


Great doctors to work with!


Management sucks

It’s a call center what do you expect? Just angry patients getting at your face for issues you have nothing to do with and even when you do all that you can they still treat it like it’s your issue.

Good Company, Decent pay

I like what this company stands for; our CEO is a good respectable guy. We get yearly raises based on performance reviews that are 50% behaviors and 50% quality of work. You’ll find different cultures in different areas of the job; nursing vs lab vs client services, etc. Some are more pleasant than others. Starts you at decent pay if you don’t have any work experience, but yearly raises are not that much.


Benefits, Job Security, Pay


Stressful, Lack of support

I loved my job, but…

I loved the department and doctor that I worked with. The biggest downfall is management and communication. Issues were just brushed off, never followed up on, and they make you feel unappreciated and replaceable regardless of how long you’ve been there. I tried to reach out to someone “higher up” about an issue I had and never got a response. This company could care less about their employees unfortunately.


Many different departments to work in.

Worst company to work for

This is a terrible company to work for. The training is non-existent. The "trainers," have no clue on how to train new employees. Instead, they bully them and management looks the other way. Management is beyond incompetent. There is no work-life balance. They expect new employees to work overtime. The compensation is not competitive with other companies for the same position. There is no respect or compassion there. Management does not care about their employees. I would not recommend this company to anyone. Don't walk, RUN the other way. I am very grateful that I left the company.




Terrible management, mean co-workers, low pay, disrespect

Used to be a great place to work

Used to be a great place to work. More work, less pay. Say that promote work/life balance, but will work you to death. Recent leadership changes have been unfavorable. Fighting to keep frontline employees, but not leadership.


Teams and providers under me were great! Great CEO!!


More work, less compensation. Upper leadership likes to take credit.

Great work life balance

This place has great work life balance. Since the merge between Advocate and Aurora, procedures often change but there is great communication via email.

Good learning experience but overworked

Great place to learn, staff is supportive and doctors can be nice. However, frequently overworked and short staffed leading to burnout and high stress. Management micromanages and only cares about meeting metrics. Not enough support given to new nurses. After aurora merge company went downhill, they invest a great amount into customer satisfaction and not enough into employee satisfaction and retention.


Pay, Pto


Short staffed, management

Not much work life balance with long hours and great deal of on call hours d/t being short staffed. Physically exhausting. I really enjoy the Dr's and the team.


Great team work

Avoid for your sanity

The most stressful job I have ever had. Once a long term employee with Aurora, since the merger with Advocate, this facility is less about patient care and all about saving a dollar. Staff is overworked and not compensated appropriately for all the added work expected as they keep continuing to cut positions. You don't NOT get paid holidays and it has to come out of your accrued PTO in addition to recently taking away some of our usual holidays off they now require half days of work. They keep offering tons of sign on bonuses to new employees but will only give a 0.30 raise (if you are lucky) each year to current employees. Management lacks medical knowledge and has favorites. Some employees will get written up for things other employees will not. Nurses forced to work out of scope of practice and risk their license due to being "short staffed". I have never felt like JUST a number and replaceable but this place sure made it that way. Over 1/3 of staff has left at this particular facility in the last year due to bad MANAGEMENT.

Did not provide PPE to home health staff in a timely fashion during the pandemic. Documentation is simple and straightforward. Difficulty communicating what patient needed to stay independent in the home

Depends on the dept. you work in

I personally don't like my department. Management are terrible communicators, inconsistent, and barely seen. There's no a lot of recognition or appreciation for work done. Morale is pretty low for most seasoned employees. Raises are few and far between, and the benefits are expensive for working in health care.


Hours, Pto, bonuses


Benefits are expensive, holidays/weekends/on-call

Average work place

Productive but not an employee focused environment .No loyalty to the employees. They will use you to the fullest extent and then chew you out in a very sneaky way. This is system wide. Middle management plays a big roll in this and eventually they also fall unn to this trap which they cover up due to the investigations from upper management.


Severence pay to get rid of you for your looking service


No lunch brakes for icu nurses

Assistant nursing manager

Way too overworked and underpaid. They pay really well if you're executive staff. But the employees burnout by the first year and they seek employment elsewhere... Revolving door. Terrible merger




CEO is garbage
