It's not a secret
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVApril 10, 2018
If you work at Renown or know anyone who has worked at Renown everyone says the same thing. Low Pay for heavy workload, management is always under pressure which in turn puts you under pressure. Constantly short staffed because of heavy turn over rate. The hospital is nice, good equipment, good doctors and staff but I would not recommend working there long term, temporary it is good for experience, but they will place you in situations that could jeopardize your license.
Pros
A lot of experience
Cons
No money and very poor morale

Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVMarch 27, 2018

Great experience
ER nurse (Former Employee) –  Reno NvMarch 10, 2018
It's a lot of work. They gave me great training and experience. However we were often under staffed and wages do not meet the level of expertise required. Also they will keep your PTO if you quit, even when leaving on goo terms with 2 weeks notice. It's company policy.
Pros
Great staff and docs
Cons
not competitive wages

Horrible place to work
RN (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVMarch 2, 2018
This company is the lowest paying company in town, yet demands the most from its employees. Employees are treated as disposable, nothing but a number, and they will look for reasons to discipline their staff so they can not transfer to other departments.
Pros
none
Cons
Don't expect a team atmosphere or breaks

Pros
Best if you have a good manager.

Lack of nurturing to potential.

Great Place to Work, Until it Isn't
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVFebruary 18, 2018
The first couple of years working at this hospital were very rewarding. Supervisors and staff were extremely helpful in becoming adjusted to the fast paced environment that has comes with a vast scope of practice, compared to other places in the state.

However, as time progresses, the amount of work that is required to be performed does not match the level of compensation received. There is a sentiment, among direct patient care workers, that upper management (CEO level), does not see us as valuable assets, rather people doing a job and hourly pay reflects that sentiment.

Increased work loads with minimal staff have become the norm, to which the solution is bringing in travelers and who's pay is roughly double what the core staff makes. This does improve patient care, yet it does nothing to improve morale among those who have put in years of time trying to make this hospital what it is, a high acuity level II trauma center, that provides excellent patient centered care.

The turn over is high, but allows for fast paced ascension if one chooses to. Collaboration between units and other disciplines is great and everyone understands that we are a team and have something valuable to offer. From the Environmental Service workers to the most experienced MDs, there is a sense that we are in it together and one cannot effectively do their job without the other. If only the people with hold of the purse strings knew how many good people they have lost due to increased living costs in the area (due to the Tesla Giga factory and no new housing built to handle the increase
  more... population growth) and flatline pay that has plagued this hospital for years.  less

Not enough benefits
Cardiac Monitor Technician/Unit Clerk (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJanuary 25, 2018
Very stressful. poor management. We were not compensated for what we do. They make us do sitter jobs even though we were unit secretaries, it was never part of our job description, to walk patients, very unsafe for both patients and us.

Overworked, underpaid, poor management
RN (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVJanuary 10, 2018
Pays their RN’s less than every other hospital here. Management is horrible, discriminates openly against you if you have a health problem, and pays favoritism to employees who will go out drinking with them and/or come in and work 7 days a week. Always denies time off requests. Employs nurses that will not even follow best practice unless it’s convenient for them. No weekend shift differential. Only good thing about them is the cafeteria which is only decent until you’re sick to your stomach from it an hour later.
Pros
Some decent cafeteria food
Cons
Everything else

Good place to work.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVNovember 5, 2017
A decent place to work. Majority of management was decent caliber. Benefits were good for private sector healthcare. Pay, on the other hand, was not that great, maybe because of being in Reno, NV.

Great Place to Work
Critical Care Technician (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVOctober 16, 2017
Great benefits, the co workers make it a great place to work. Flexible schedules. The hiring process takes a really long time and if you apply online you have to keep checking your online portal to see if your applications got denied or not. Other than that it was an overall great place to work
Pros
Benefits, flexible schedule
Cons
Pay could be better
