Happy to work for a Mission driven organization with deep roots in their Core Values
Support Center Associate (corporate) (Current Employee) –  North Metro, MNDecember 6, 2018
I've been with the organization for 5+ years. I've seen some good managers and some poor managers over those years. I've been fortunate enough to have worked for very kind and creative people that care about my opinion.

Our department is very much about collaboration. Everyone gets a voice and never feels backlash for opinions that aren't always favorable.

If you enjoy working with the elderly and serving the poor and underserved then this is a great place to work. The Mission and Core Values and very important to many who work here. It's what's kept me here for 5 years. I know others who have been here for 25+ years. That speaks volumes to the organization.

New President/CEO in January 2018. Looking forward to see what he has accomplished in the next several years. I think he has great ideas and asks everyone a lot of questions about how we do things and why. So important for a leader to know all aspects of the organization.
Pros
Mission, Core Values, family orientated, good people, the sponsors (the Sisters of St. Scholastica)
Cons
Can't complete with hospital pay due to cap on reimbursements and charges to residents

Not a great place to start
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) –  Virginia, MNNovember 22, 2018
The facility is old and need upgrades. Not enough staff so be expect to be doing lots and unappreciated for most of it. Ned passes are heavy. If you are not a friend of the DON she will be out to get you and so will some of her staff members. DON very good at micromanaging techniques and quick to write you up for anything at all. Not a single RN will answer a call light, but they will point out a call light to cna staff when one is on. The union is just as useless as upper management so don’t expect help from them when you are in trouble for made up problems. The only positive is pay, but money can’t buy everything.

Good values
Corporate Office Employee (Current Employee) –  Shoreview, MNJanuary 22, 2018
Every company has its pros and cons, but overall, BHS is a good company to work for. The benefits are good, and they give generous amounts of vacation/personal time off. There are a few "bad apples" within the corporate office that can make the work day stressful at times, but you're going to have those types of people within every organization.
Pros
Benefits, Pto, holiday pay, good work-life balance
Cons
Some management

Waste of time working here
Cook (Former Employee) –  Fridley, MNOctober 23, 2017
Management is unfair and bias . Management will see you need help and won’t help. They are not honest people and will tell you anything just to get you out their face

Overworked, underpaid, and not appreciated!!!
Slave (Former Employee) –  Shoreview, MNMay 2, 2017
Although the organization's mission is great because they are sponsored by the Sisters of St. Scholastica, the people - especially [most] management - are terrible. They think they are SUPERIOR and, if you correct them, they alienate you, mistreat you, and make life extremely difficult. Mgmt takes credit for your work all the time.

There is no life/work balance - you are overworked, not recognized, and not appreciated.

If you don't mind being treated like a slave, go ahead and work for this organization.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Lots - too much to list

Great Administrator, Poor DON
RN (Former Employee) –  La Crosse, WIMarch 6, 2017
The Administrator is WONDERFUL, the DON leaves a LOT to be desired. The Administrator is empowering and really listens to his team. The DON NEVER worked outside her 9-5 Mon-Fri schedule and is only there for the paycheck. She was rude to her staff and doesn't care about the well being of her staff. The staff worked short a lot and were mandated to stay overtime.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Poor DON

Great culture, poor mobility
Not Important (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MNOctober 29, 2014
Great culture, if you believe in the mission.

Almost no upward mobility possible. Most positions are a dead end. Recruiting is typically done to bring in new talent, developing current talent is given lip-service, but not actually pursued.
