Contact Center Associate (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 12, 2018
Unorganized and no one knew what was supposed to be happening. They were inattentive and ignored employees. They had their own agenda and didn't care about anything else.

Excellent patient support
Patient Support Associate (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 11, 2018
Great department with excellent co-workers. A demanding position, helping therapist, doing insurance checks and being the go-to person.
Management is involved from the Supervisor, who is fantastic, to the Manager and Director. They come to monthly department meetings and attack any issues head on..

Good Company to work for.
Team Architect and Senior Technical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Orland, CAJune 8, 2018
Good Company to work for. They brought the Storage and Backup Administrators back into the company instead of contracting this service out. They have made great strides in incorporating this area into their Company

Unstable Recruiting/Staffing Department goes from in house RPO back to in house
Talent Acquisition Partner (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 4, 2018
In less than 18 months the recruiting department went from Recruiting in House to working with Cielo and RPO, then in March of 2018 back to in house recruiting. Many people lost jobs with out the chance to interview

Was a great place until they downsized and went with contract labor
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 3, 2018
Had flexible schedules within a fixed parameter. Work was pretty much the same pattern or routine. Culture in each department was good but not very good with other departments. A lot of cliques and hardly any collaboration between departments.
Pros
Consistency of work
Cons
Lay Offs

Would not recommend working here
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Newburgh, INMay 30, 2018
Worst place to work ever, especially Newburgh Indiana office. They treat you unfairly and poorly. Very clickish! Staff not friendly! Expect you to pick up on things when you are just starting out in medical field! Do not give you a chance at all to learn the job! Want you to learn things in 90 days when you dont have medical experience! Staff doesnt help you learn at all! Manager not helpful either! Hardly at office! Too laid back and unprofessional! They contradict themselves on office policies they set forth because when you try to enforce those policies they bend the rules anyway. Stay away from St. Vincent at all costs!
Pros
No pros at all!
Cons
Staff too clickish! Not helpful! Not enough time to learn position! Worst job ever!

Great job!
Consultant Pharmacist (Current Employee) –  MichiganMay 23, 2018
Great place to work with wonderful management. They are actually concerned for one's welfare and care enough to give one all the tools needed to do the job without standing over one's shoulder watching every move - but are available when necessary
Pros
great managment
Cons
more money would be ideal!

Great Cooporation
Senior Purchasing Card Administrator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 22, 2018
Change in work culture over the years has changed but the changes have been to the benefit of Ascension.
Management has had a significant turnover using Ascension as a gateway to other Healthcare opportunities.
Policies regarding the retention of associates with disabilities need to be rewritten and reviewed to support the Ascension Mission.
Pros
Great pay and benefits and colleagues
Cons
Advancement Opportunities and cliques.

Largest faith based, not for profit healthcare system in the US
Director (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMay 16, 2018
Heavy mission focused with special attention to the poor and vulnerable population in the communities served. Large, geographically dispersed organization allows for growth and movement within the organization.

A company that is trying to find its way
Client Technologies Technician Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMay 15, 2018
a typical work day starts with a meeting on what happened over the past 24 hours. Status reports of systems and spot check of SLAs

what I have learned is that everyone has an opinion and all opinions should be considered not just tossed aside

director and managers uses a micro management style

hardest part of the day is being micro managed, and keeping an eye on everyones productivity so you don't have to yell at anyone

the most enjoyable part of the job is the job its self and whats left of the team I have
Pros
I really enjoy the work and the techs I work with
Cons
micro management style

Difficult place to work with current management
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) –  Racine, WIMay 14, 2018
The team has a good connection, however management and leads did not seem to take the time to listen to their team. Often times we went without breaks or lunches and would be required to stay late. Schedules where constantly changing, and workloads were increasing. They lead people on thinking they will give them a chance for advancement but in the end they keep you were you are. If you do not fully agree with management you get punished. Ascension is all about making money and does not listen to their "Associates". Constantly falling behind on procedures because they would over book and then try and squeeze more exams in.
Pros
team I worked with was amazing and for the most part got along
Cons
Management does not take time to listen to their associates and fix issues

Friendly place to work
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIMay 9, 2018
For the most part all employees are friendly here. Not always positive but friendly! There has been a lot of negativity but it appears that it is due to the change from Affinity to Ascension, the change has not affected me in any negative way.

Senior Solution Developer (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 8, 2018
Management dishonest and IT staff had low morale. Clinical people good in limited circumstances. Absolutely no local autonomy, everyone had to do as they were told by national.

Stressful, and short staffed is the rule
RN (Former Employee) –  MidwestMay 4, 2018
They are one of the biggest hospital systems in the country who just announced that they want to dump their hospitals for outpatient clinics to make more money. Greed is the name of the game! The CEO recently made 17 million and they are crying the blues that hospitals don't provide enough profit for them. Yet they are running around the country buying up hapless hospital systems and then tearing them apart! Short staffing is the rule and they close hospitals on a whim and the workers find out the day it is announced in the news.

They preach about the Christian mission while laying off people, outsourcing left and right, understaffing as a rule and running out of supplies constantly and closing hospitals to increase profits. They are crying the blues over last year's steep revenue decline that was mostly caused by their constant greedy acquisition of other hospitals that they want to gut and close. It is crazy making! Pray that if they come to your hospital another healthcare system buys you out!
Cons
Greed!
