    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ascension Borgess full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    401k contribution is matched nicely.

    Cons

    Borgess went downhill rapidly after the Ascension takeover. It went from patient focused, to money focused and it was painfully obvious. Management is also poor, going as far to write an employee up for "leaving early" when they were taken to the ER by ambulance.

    I worked at Ascension Borgess full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Becoming friends with doctors and nurses comes in handy when you’re sick. By coincidence, met some fantastic coworkers.

    Cons

    No raises even when you get an excellent review. Unrealistic expectations of upper and lower management when the work load was meant for a team with at least 3 more people. Health benefits that are lackluster.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Ascension Borgess full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Lots of opportunities to get into positions you wouldn’t get into at a hospital that is more structured and well managed.

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Awful management. Lots of union nurses who are awful nurses but rely on the union to protect their job. No one is happy here.
