    Pros

    Bronson is a great place to work. Beautiful facility, friendly environment. Award winning for outcomes. I'm proud to work for Bronson.

    Cons

    Parking for employees is not good. Not many opportunities for advancement if you aren't clinical.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders could help employees grow by offering opportunities to gain additional skills and knowledge of the organization if they show interest in advancing.

    Pros

    Forward thinking leadership who genuinely care about employees and are truly committed to doing what is right and best for our patients.
    Employees are treated very fairly and good performance is recognized. Lots of opportunities for growth if you work hard at Bronson.

    Cons

    With the government continuing to cut reimbursement to hospitals, and more people coming to the hospital needing care, it's difficult for management to continue to offer competitive wages and benefits as a nonprofit. I think Bronson does a great job at this but the economy has posed a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    No advice ... Just appreciation for many years of a very pleasant environment to come every day where I do have to work hard, but I know I am appreciated and I truly enjoy the work I do and the people I work with. Bronson is a great place to work.


  7. In-house educational training to help employees be successful in their Bronson career.

    Pros

    Forward thinking--they are fairly successful in keeping up with the changes in the healthcare industry and finding ways to stay ahead of the game--what they need to do to reduce costs to patients while maintaining a high patient safety standards through LEAN thinking throughout the company. Their wages are more than fair.

    Cons

    With a large company, the amount of time it takes to hire personnel can lead to short staffing and stress for the managers (but...you also tend to get good candidates!)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make ergonomic improvements--especially for those working in an office environment with a lot of sitting.

    Pros

    Great benefits including 403b matching, generous paid time-off and employee input is valued by middle management.

    Cons

    Non-clinical employees are disposable and employee opinions are not valued by upper management. Upward mobility is virtually non-existent unless you are friends with someone in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Provide non-clinical staff with a better sense of job security and don't punish them for having differing opinions. Be more diligent in conducting non-biased internal job interviews. Offer in-place promotions.

    Pros

    Some great people work here. They are extremely intelligent and passionate about what they do. The organization is focused on quality and the patient experience, which is a fabulous mission.

    Cons

    The salaries are not competitive for the market or the industry. no opportunity for promotion within the organization for non-clinicians and non-clinicians get little-to-no professional development opportunities, mentors, or professional association connections.

    Advice to Management

    Support your existing employees in career growth and development. Pay non-clinical employees salaries consistent with health-related employees doing with same work at other organizations.

    Pros

    There are many great people to work with who are supportive.
    Challenging environment.

    Cons

    The environment at Bronson is very competitive and political. Unfortunately people are not always recognized for the job they are doing or their commitment to the mission of Bronson.

    Advice to Management

    I respect Mr. Sardone. He is very visionary and is a leader in the healthcare arena not just in Michigtan but nationwide. Unbfortunately, his vision is not always communciated well by Senior leadership. There is truly a disconnect between the Bronson that is portrayed to the public and realty.
