An Insider's view of Ascension

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I would describe our company’s work life balance as very supportive and even encouraged. Although many of our team members are busy with their assigned workload, I am supported by my leadership to plan vacation or time off to recharge, take care of personal items or just spend time with friends and family.

Ronna

Manager - Software Engineering Operations, Program and Strategy

What makes someone successful on your team?

My goal is never to tell my teams how to do something. I want my teams to feel empowered to own their solutions in addition to the creative process it takes to get them there. When a team’s software exceeds the mark, I ensure they receive the recognition they deserve as part of their commitment to supporting our healthcare communities
