    Pros

    Good wages & benefits are available.

    Cons

    One HR dept - if you didn't get along in one office - are you really considered for any other job?

    Pros

    Leadership is changing with the same pace as healthcare in general; forward-thinking and extremely supportive of staff. Growth opportunities abound.

    Cons

    Healthcare is experiencing unprecedented growth and regulation. Healthcare IT is not for the faint of heart or 8-5 person. Work hard, play hard.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and imaging management. They promote good work/ life balance.

    Cons

    The corporation has a horrible annual evaluation process. If you do okay or if you excel and go above and beyond for your position, it makes no difference. Everyone gets the same percentage raise that is approved for the year. PTO accrual rates are lower than the average for our area as well.

    Pros

    Good place to develop a broad range of experience. Friendly and considerate co-workers.

    Cons

    Compared to the market. Salary is on the low end. no real expectation of professional growth or reasonable raises. Aspirus has had years of pay freeze and cost of living increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a model that allows professionals to grow professionally. A person with drive will burn out if he/she isnt allowed to grow.

    I worked at Aspirus

    Pros

    Senior management has excellent vision.
    Benefits are good in comparison with other companies.
    Caring employees who put the patient first.
    Flexibility in scheduling.

    Cons

    Middle management is too concerned with dollars and doesn't address concerns of staff under them.
    Many excellent employees end up leaving because the "problem" employees and issues aren't dealt with;high turnover.
    No recognition for going above and beyond what is expected; employees who coast along, or just barely get by, receive same recognition (and pay increases) as stellar employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should become more involved with all employees, not just the managers under them, and see what is really going on within departments. Engage in open one-on-one talk with employees - the online assessments don't seem to be doing the job.

    Pros

    Location
    Staff commitment to quality.
    Beautiful facility with great staff energy.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition from mgmt.
    Anemic raises, slow response to changing market conditions.
    Expects more each day from staff but less from managers.
    Staff turnover due to lack of advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not expect changes or improvements when you keep the same line up in your mgmt team. Create career ladders for staff to grow so that getting more education allows for advancement. Do not forget what got you here.
