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

Could use more training for new staff. Seems that they do not have a good practice in place for training. The manager of the business office does not seem to be people friendly.
Pros
Run by nuns
Cons
Seems hard to advance

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.

"Minnesota Nice" trap
Corporate (Former Employee) –  CambridgeFebruary 6, 2014
They do pay fairly, to be sure, but management is the biggest issue with this organization. They will suggest that they want outside perspectives about how problems can be fixed, but rest assured; if you want to keep your job, you'll toe the line with management, or you will lose your job. The 4 values of the organization are Justice, Respect, Stewardship, and Hospitality. I would say that those apply to the residents in the nursing and assisted living facilities, mostly. As an employee, don't expect that to apply to you. If you're applying to work in the Corporate office in Cambridge, be prepared to fake-smile your way through the day every day. And do not ask questions or attempt to take problems to higher management if you want to continue working for them. Fake pleasantries and fake smiles--that's the BHS "Way."
Pros
Some people there are genuinely nice
Cons
Most people there are "Minnesota Nice."

Busy, well maintained care facility
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNJune 12, 2013
I worked as a CNA/TMA. Direct resident care, working in long term care, post acute, locked alzheimer unit. I learned that there were many challenges working with various resident's with multiple concerns. My co workers were overall easy to work with and friendly with residents. I enjoyed taking care of people that are in need and have serious medical conditions. The most difficult part of my job was getting too attached to the resident, and having them pass away.

Decent pay with opportunities to advance with continued education.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Spooner, WIMay 2, 2013
The pay is higher than local CNA jobs, the culture among aides includes a tight knit group, and there are opportunities to continue a career in nursing if you should choose to get licensed.
