    I worked at PruittHealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Newer facilities were very nice (at least in looks). I learned a lot about how to research a company more prior to taking a job. (see cons below)

    Cons

    Where do I start? Most facilities had too much work and not enough staff. For example, a financial counselor was responsible for the jobs of what would be 3 different positions in most other companies and not paid competitively for it. Turnover was extremely high. In my area, out of 13 facilities, every single one had at least one change in upper management (administrator or DNS), most had 3 or 4 administrators in the short time I was with the company. The organizational structure changed multiple times in the short time I was there, as and there even times the changes only lasted a day before they were changed back. There was very little formal training at the facility level. I was a corporate employee but since I did not live or work in Georgia I was constantly left out of the loop on just about everything. Very cliquish at the corporate level. Benefits were terrible for a healthcare company. Holiday (except Christmas) pay, sick time, bereavement leave all had to come out of your PTO pool. PTO was accrued at a higher rate, but most corporate employers were required to use some of that PTO for the week between Christmas and New Year's when the corporate office was closed. This is something I wish I had known prior to taking the job, and the employee handbook was very vague about holiday pay. I enjoyed what I did, but unfortunately there were very few instances where I was really allowed to do the job I was hired to do and make a difference with the people I was trying to help. Pruitt is the perfect example of too many chiefs.

    I worked at PruittHealth full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff I worked with.

    Cons

    Everything from management to insurance. Upper management is on a power trip. There is no humanity. Staff are expected to be like robots. Much hypocrisy. The mission statement is a joke. If upper management actually believed in the mission statement, it would be a different place. This employer is all about the almighty dollar.

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

    Pros

    The patients entrusted in our care are the bright spot of the day. Decent PTO program except no payout if you leave , even with ample notice.

    Cons

    HUGE disconnect between upper management and the regular workers. No room for advancement unless you are a relative, close friend or a suck-up. Many managers have no experience for the jobs they got promoted to.

    I have been working at PruittHealth full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sometimes you get a bonus for all your hard work; the corporate office has their own cafeteria; corporate office has great security; reviews and small raises each year (when I was there a few years ago); I got to leave at 4:00 everyday.

    Cons

    Sometimes you don't get a bonus for all your hard work - and it's because it's based on a team's efforts, not yours; to upper management you're just a number/work mule; cubicles; bad attitudes from other employees.

    Pros

    The employees are wonderful. Very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    The upper management of this company feels entitled to extravagant perks while corporate employees struggle with very few PTO days to spend with families. The only holiday provided by the company is Christmas day. The CIO of this company only wants his personal and professional friends working for him. Many, many intelligent, talented, and experienced people were either let go or fired (without real cause) to make room for his 'friends'. Many others left on their own because they saw 'the writing on the wall". This company provides life saving and life giving services for their patients and families, yet the company doesn't provide the same qualities for their employees.

    I worked at PruittHealth

    Pros

    The company has a lot of locations so it's easy to find something close to home. You can learn a lot if you are driven and self-directed to get the knowledge. If you have to work there, know that it's temporary. Learn what you can and move on. Has some good systems although too many and not necessarily used to their full capabilities.

    Cons

    Corporate management unfairly and inequitably applies policies at will. They create new policies that no one knows about and then picks and chooses who to apply them to. 85% of the management staff couldn't tell you what the policies are at any given time. If you ask 3 people you will get 3 different answers. PTO policy was changed without notice. Found out after I submitted my resignation notice that my PTO would not be paid out. The work is so heavy that you are never able to take off so imagine my disappointment to learn that in spite of my ample resignation notice given, my 30 days of accrued PTO (from the past couple of years of never taking off) would NOT be paid. This is a "new" policy and apparently payroll doesn't even know this because I was still being directed to pay out other former employees PTO even though mine would not be paid out. Corporate staff comes into the facilities to talk about other facilities instead of completing the tasks that they are assigned to do. They go from facility to facility doing this. I've worked for several large hospitals and employers of choice in my career and have never experienced a place as unprofessional as Pruitt. Everyone wants to be a chief and thinks that they are more important than they are - specifically corporate staff. The things that corporate staff should be involved in, such as physical plant breakdowns and patient care needs, get no attention. Nepotism is rampant and almost everyone in upper management knows someone or is related. I've never seen this as much as I've seen it at Pruitt. I think this contributes to the chaos at the company because instead of hiring the best candidates for leadership, they hire people they know. These people are not always the best and it shows in the way the company is ran. If you're going to quit, it's better to not give a notice. All of their policies discourage you from leaving one and I wish that I didn't. I have never in my life left a professional job without notice but I've also never worked anywhere like Pruitt. They seem to penalize you for giving a notice because they start messing with your pay and pulling policies out of hats that haven't been previously applied to anyone else. You cant use your PTO but also won't be paid for it either.

    I have been working at PruittHealth full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is lots of room for overtime, the work is not hard put its quite a few residents to pertain to anyone who is really willing to work should be just fine.

    Cons

    the only thing i dislike about pruitt is they are under staffed and are your usually working short and that makes any job harder. also upper management is just unorganized.

    I worked at PruittHealth

    Pros

    Most of the residents are a joy to work for and it is a paycheck paycheck to pay one's bills. Claim to be all about being "family" and is- a hugely DYSFUNCTIONAL one!

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, upper management and corporate climate, stress, politics, outdated equipment, can't get enough equipment or materials to do your job. Keep adding to work load and demand NO overtime to get it done. No breaks even though you HAVE to punch out for lunch. Some coworkers are good and caring workers but MANY are not. To get a job just apply-they are desperate for bodies so if you can pass background checks you will probably get a job. VERY HIGH and FAST turnover - there's a very good reason they offer CNA and nurses those big bonuses- they can't keep them with the work environment and treatment they get.
