What is the company culture like at GUNDERSEN LUTHERAN HEALTH SYSTEM, INC.? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Since I work at a hospital, it should be a place of health. I think there should only be healthy foods in the vending machines and in the cafeteria. People shouldn't be have triple bypasses then allowed to eat eggs and bacon.

What I like about the company

The most positive aspect of my job is my coworkers. We engage with each other daily and encourage one another when we run into problems. They are all friendly and always willing to help.

What I dislike about the company

It would be nice to be compensated more. Gundersen is currently looking at cost savings throughout the health system, yet they continue to go on and make frivolous purchases for the exterior aesthetics.

Company Culture

I feel we have a wide variety of culture

Work-Life Balance

There is a lot of on call jobs and that is kind of keeping me from making plans away from work

Challenging Work

Working with different patients with all different kinds of problems can be stressful

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can’t really think of anything that I would change except for maybe more incentive

What I like about the company

Hey me and my family are also patients at my hospital and I feel that I’m not treated any different than any other patient

What I dislike about the company

I feel that the on call Positions don’t believe you a lot of time to plan something because you’re always worried about being called into work

What I like about the company

Has many great health incentive programs. Very environmentally concerned company. Good benefits. Management is open and receptive to new ideas.

Needs to continually listen to all employees major concerns and look at how upper management decisions will effect all levels of employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would want everyone to try to remember to think about what happens before you got the 'problem' and what happens after you hand it off. People often forget that other people are trying their best on certain projects before you work on it, and after you work on it. If we try and remember thinking outside our little box, we would be more understanding of who does what and what potential problems they're having.

What I like about the company

I really like how the management tries to care about each any every employee under their umbrella. It's wonderful to see people working together to accomplish goals.

What I dislike about the company

I wish the HR/hiring process would go quicker or smoother for lower level hires. Some people wait months to hear back from HR to say whether or not they have an interview or not.

  • Again, the hiring process and lack of timeliness in communication with applicants could use some improvement.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the Healthcare week celebration. There are a lot of activities and all employees get a nice free gift. There is also a cook out during the week for all employees and the food is served by the management teams.

What I dislike about the company

The only thing that I can think of is the actual hiring process and lack of communication. I feel that the time from applying to getting a scheduled interview is way too long.
