Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – October 8, 2018
Allina is a big healthcare company in MN, I happen to work in one of their busiest hospitals in Minneapolis. The one thing that I enjoy is the people that are employed here everyone is so nice and we work together very nicely.
Allina came together as a series of mergers. At the time I worked there it was a lot of mini cultures inside a larger organization without a lot of unity. I found the organization to be unsure of who it was and thus lots of changes.
Service Desk Supervisor (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – September 14, 2018
Log in and check emails and voicemails. Walk through the department and say hello to my team that is on site Review QIs that have not been marked complete (Quality Improvement Surveys). On Monday - Leadership weekly meeting On a Wednesday - one hour meeting with Access Management and two Service desk analysts, discuss the KB, tickets., processes and make improvements as noted. Review 3 calls in Verint, more if there is time. If needed - assist the Incident Coordinator on evening issues Work on updating flagged articles in the knowledgebase I an assigned to.
I would also assist analyst that IM'd or called me, I might have a project meeting other than the Access Management meeting.
If there is a major outage, that takes precedence over all else. Assisting with the analysts questions, getting information the department needs to help the Incident Coordinators, etc.
set of things to do. Never dull. Includes people and technology
About all I can think of is, very busy when things happen, priorities can be harder to set when outages happening.
RN CARE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – September 7, 2018
Typical day at work included having active schedule of home/clinic or telephonic visits. Attending visits with patients care team. creating care plans and implementing them. Collaborating with variety of clinic staff, inpatient and out patient services. What I learned on the job was how important it is to build partnerships with patients, families and medical team and co-workers. Work place culture options to work on site and off site from home. The I worked with are very compassionate, caring people that provide excellent care. The most difficult part was meeting exacting standards set up by a National quality assurance association. Most enjoyable was building up net work of support and friendships.
I loved working with Allina Health, Our Shoreview site had such great employees. Fast pace, patients were friendly along with the staff throughout the whole clinic. if I didn't move states I would still be working for this company.

This was probably the worst company I have ever worked for. They clearly do not care about their employees at all. To them it's all about money and how they can make more while treating their employees like dirt. I worked at Abbott and it was old and out-dated. I worked in mental health and it was very outdated and clearly there was no money to be spent on the mentally ill. The management is terrible and not considerate of anything that may be going on in your personal life. If you ever get really sick, forget about being supported by this company. They would call you into work early or on days off even though you weren't on the list to pick up. However, then they started giving LOA's stating that "they were overstaffed." The nurses ran their butts off. There were no Mental Health Associates (similar to a CNA) because they were always sitting on 1:1. More than half the time, we were running around getting coffee and snacks for patients rather than having time for patient care, which led to people having to stay late to finish their work, which then got you in trouble with management. They clearly have their favorites and if you aren't one of them, they will try to bully you out. The nurses union is a joke and I would not pay money for dues because it's not worth it. One day I was called into work (I was on the Can Work list), drove 45 minutes to get there, only to walk in the door and clock in and then have them call me to say that they screwed up and actually don't need me. I was supposed to get paid for that 4 hours and the union was filing a grievance for it.more... They said that it would take 12 weeks for the process. Well that was 6 months ago and I still haven't seen the money.less
At least they offer health care insurance.
No 401K match, don't care about employees, all about money, management is terrible, Insurance premiums continue to rise and they Rn plans are going away in June.

I really enjoy the people I work with. Allina is a large company and offers great benefits. They do a wonderful job with employee education. They take safe patient moving seriously and provide every piece of equipment needed.

Great Pay, Great Benefits, Great Work/Life Balance. It is a large organization and has some growing pains that it needs to focus on. Otherwise it is a good company that I would recommend to anybody. Great Culture!
