Working for Ascension was a great experience. I loved coming to work and being recognized for the hard work I was putting in as well as being able to work with a group of people that focused on communication and team effort.

To much management changes. New management comes in and changes things constantly and they actually don’t know how to do your job. Was told by new manager that all you do is check someone in. She had no idea what the job entailed.
Pros
None
Cons
Insurance is not great

It was good at first then everything went downhill. Too much favoritism within the company. Nurses tried to talk to you any kind of way. They let too many people get away with stuff while the good workers are overworked.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Overall
My experience working at Ascension in the lab was horrific . Never felt more undervalued , understaffed and over worked . Great commercials on how caring they are but that doesn’t play out when employees can’t properly do their job due to lack of help . I left before I completely hated the lab field .

The work is alright. It's very stressful and unhealthy there. There's No room for advancement. The supervisor, will correct you in front of everyone if you do something wrong. Your always talked about for something.

I've generally been happy working at Ascension but the main issue I have is the lack of advancement and contracting out work. I have a feeling my position will soon be contracted out and I will have to reapply for my job. We have staff cuts yearly which makes me wonder about my job security.

Overall the people I work with and my actual job is great but upper management is not doing a good job at keeping moral or treating it's current employees well or providing a clear path for advancement. Because of this I sadly just consider this another job and not somewhere where I can build up a career.

Poor management!! Reviews are based on whether you fit in their click rather then on knowlege and eagerness to learn proper workflow. Techs are nice!

There was no chance to be promoted if you were over 40 and not in a managers click of gaming buddies. Job is now being outsourced to India.
The pay and benefits were good as was the amount of PTO if you could get it approved.
Pros
Pay, healthcare and amount of PTO
Cons
The customer never comes first, just how many IT tickets can be created.

● Work-life balance
Its standard nursing shifts .working midnight's is already hard to have free time


● Pay & benefits

Pay to work ratio sucks


● Overall

You would be better off working in a nursing home. It's the same amount of work and probably more pays. Ascension is about the money so don't ever expect to get more of a raise

Management doesn’t listen. You aren’t appreciated, list goes on. They sound promising but can’t keep staff, for obvious reasons. Keep looking, seriously!

I feel like I go to work with my family. I have worked there for 11 years, so it feels like home to me. The only reason I am looking for a new job is because I have a new degree.
Cons
Depends on the day. Sometimes not staffed properly.

The TA management team is unprofessional. They hire unrefined managers so they are easily controlled. Some are more concerned about their dating life than their own employees. They play favorites. Of you don't have long blonde hair you can basically forget about career advancement
Virtually no diversity on the team and minorities are given heavier workloads. If you bring issues up, you vilianized or constructively terminated. Employment at will is used to get rid of those they don't like. Managers are inept and under qualified.
Pros
The pay is decent
Cons
Biased, plays favorites unprofessional stressful positions. They need diversity training.

Always room for growth and advancement. They promote mobility and advancement from within. During COVID-19 they attempted to keep everyone working, at all costs. They took immediate action on sending the every associates home that they were able to.
Pros
Competitive pay, flexible hours
Cons
