    Pros

    HCMC is a workplace like no other. The place is often very busy and there are days where I never sit still but if you're the type of person who revels in being busy its a great place to work. There's rarely any time to be bored. The employees are a mixed bunch of people and HCMC will often throw staff parties, health initiatives, etc. to help encourage team building and development. The benefits packages are pretty good as well.

    Cons

    There is sometimes frustration to be had with the weakness of departmental cohesiveness. Sometimes the communication between different units will falter and this can lead to frustrated patients and staff. There have certainly been numerous changes made in recent years to help counter this though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work towards better communication between different units/departments. Be sure to take the time to encourage every staff member from emergency room doctors to environmental service workers, all who work to help the patients and keep the hospital running and clean.


  3. HCMC is one of the best hospital to work in the downtown minneapolis area in Minnesota. The organization have a great work ethics and their care is centered around family. Working there is a privilege.

    Pros

    you gain a lot of knowledge and it teaches you to want to give more for those in need

    Cons

    Getting management to listen to employees input

    Advice to Management

    please listen to the people who do the job because somethings look good from a distance but there are some things that do not work well when you actually are doing them.

    Pros

    We have really great, talented, and compassionate staff. I love that we are a teaching and learning hospital. There is really some great work being done here and, as we are transitioning leadership, we have a great opportunity to change how we are engaged within our community.

    Cons

    Currently we are transitioning leadership with new management and new staff. Change can be scary, but I'm hoping for the best. A lot of older employees have been here a very long time and need to choose between retiring or continuing to work.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more employee growth and team cohesiveness - continue with the positive changes you are making and help us strive for excellence in every area so we can become a better hospital all together

    Pros

    If possible, managers try to be flexible with work schedules to accomadate life schedule. Good health benefits and scheduling preference at clinics for employees. New leadership seems to be trying to change the culture.

    Cons

    Lack of communication system wide. Improving culture but "it's not my job" is a frequent refrain. Issues take so long to get resolved that it appears they do not get resolved. Supervisors and managers that do not always understand the jobs they are managing.

    Advice to Management

    Learning and self improvement oportunities are scheduled around a day shift perspective even though the hospital is open 24/7. Job sharing should be an option. Continuing education is only encouraged if it means getting a degree or certificate. On site, off hours daycare would be fabulous.


  9. Great. love the job.

    Pros

    work around your schedule. give you hours if you want them and not if you dont.

    Cons

    some of the management...is rude.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees more rather than play favoritism. Everyone deserves to be treated equally, not just people who you personally like for whatever reason.
