    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding - cheap insurance subsidized by UI, awesome retirement match and extraordinary wellness programs. Annual reviews that really happen. Exceptional amounts of time off. Nice people. Since there is so little structure and leadership, most jobs can be what you make them.

    Cons

    Weird little silos, and job functions fractured to suit admin personalities rather than strategy or logic. Parking is horrible - 15-year minimum waiting list. YOU CAN'T FIRE ANYBODY: employees drinking on the job, asleep on the job, showing up only 3% of the time? Your good workers will just have to pick up the slack (without overtime) as HR tries to avoid any hint of a lawsuit by providing continuous accommodations. Every department has deadwood and legacies that have been there 30+ years and stopped working 20 years ago. Surprisingly little structure - no one knows what anyone else is doing, so there's a lot of repetition of effort and whole chunks of things that everyone assumes someone else must be addressing. (They're not.) Onboarding is really poor - you get a morning of "orientation" that's really just a benefits explanation and a quick tour. Find a friend that knows things, and do it fast, or you will be lost for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to look at the whole picture and develop some system-wide structure. The hundreds of people in HR really need to get a grip on what's actually happening on the floor, and help department management get rid of problem employees. Leadership would benefit from walking around and looking at things - don't rely on the chosen few to deliver glowing reports. Get out and SEE something, Ask a housekeeper what would make their job easier. Ask the medical assistants what training would help them. Ask the nurses when they last had a day off. Ask the people whose departments have been restructured if any of the changes are actually helpful. TALK TO PATIENTS AND FAMILIES and tell them they are appreciated, and not just for paying their bills. Help HR to promote quality rather than foster dysfunction.

    Interview

    After the interview process I was informed it was changed to a temporary position. The wait time for my interview was long. They seemed very unhappy to be there.
