    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Staff are compassionate about the patient population. Many of Minnesota's physicians were trained at HCMC in medical school, residencies or fellowships.

    Cons

    Many doctors have leadership titles and salaries, but aren't held accountable for changing physician culture. Maybe new CEO will make a difference. There is not a burning platform for being the "best." Good enough seems good enough seems to be the prevailing attitude.

    Pros

    Easy to find meaningful ways to help people from diverse backgrounds
    Always something going on; no chance of feeling bored
    Honorable organizational mission with staff involved who like to serve patients from diverse backgrounds.
    Energetic, teaching hospital environment. The hospital provides exceptional care.
    The best cafeteria food of all Twin Cities hospitals.

    Cons

    Disconnection of executive leadership to front-line staff as shown in the high rate of process changes, increasing expectations, and lack of tools to meet the expectations.
    Patient population with complex needs and lack of resources to address those needs, can lead to frustration.
    Aging infrastructure, and poorly enforced expectations regarding smoking and loitering on the grounds.
    Poor work-life balance opportunities e.g., no good work-out options, child-care, flexible work schedules, etc.

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The organizations mission and the dedication of the staff to serve the local community. Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Dis-functional departments and too many silos. Managers do not seem to understand what is going on within their department or outside their department. Lack of growth opportunities. If you are ambitious I will recommend to try to lean as much as you can about the department you are join to make sure it is a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on breaking down the silos that exist through out the organization. The place is been managed as a government entity and not as a not for profit focused on providing efficient and cost effective services. Too much waste. Also increase the focus on the outreach to more paying patients.
