I enjoyed working at Essentia
Health Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNOctober 10, 2018
Essentia is a very business type of place to work. A typical day would be busy, which is what I like. I really enjoyed working in the NTICU and the people that I worked with.

Received plenty of opportunity to advance skills and was provided many learning opportunities. Great Nursing Staff! Rotating schedule and call time was the most difficult part of the job.

company centered
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Virginia, MNSeptember 20, 2018
Company is centered on corporate more than patient driven. The company focuses on cost-saving cuts to save the hospital money. Good care is given to the patients no matter due to the staff

Not a good place to work
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNSeptember 7, 2018
Never enough staff because the more unit manager can save in the budget, the bigger the bonus they receive. Management is poor and self serving. Employees are not recognized by there hard work and dedication. Your opinion doesn't matter even if you are the most knowledgeable and educated person in the room. Beware to anyone who is willong to work there. Just look at how many opening positions they have and the proof is in the pudding!

Laborer (Former Employee) –  Fargo, NDAugust 29, 2018
My department had bad managers. Managers were stuck in too many meetings to know what was going on in their own department, and to see what was really going on with their staff.
Pros
some good coworkers, GREAT Leads, some teamwork
Cons

Typical day at work.
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNAugust 29, 2018
Only a couple of people actually work and put forth a reasonable amount of effort while the rest waste time talking, running around the hospital on extended or extra breaks and management/ supervisors is nowhere to be found most of the day and if they can be found they normally don't address any issues that are happening on hand even with numerous reports saying the same thing. Management/supervisor spends more time in meetings or in their offices than actually supervising their employees.

Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Duluth, MNAugust 20, 2018
I have enjoyed working at Essentia Health. A great group of hard working people. I have learned not everyone is a fit for Mental Health. I think the best part of the job is working patients and improving the quality of life.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
The stigma in Mental Health

Garbage organization
Certified Ophthalmic Assistant (Former Employee) –  Duluth, MNAugust 16, 2018
They don't care about patients, they don't care about employees. Upper management is more interested in protecting their bloated and undeserved salaries. So Many Don't Care.
Pros
Quitting
Cons
Everything about that place
