    Pros

    Good starting point for a career, good management, defined roles, employee education, tuition reimbursement, loan forgiveness plan, 401k match and vacation time very good.

    Cons

    Different rules depending on who you work for. Very large company, so treated like a number and dispensable. Pay is below average for most positions, constant negative press.

    Pros

    Great perks, pto and benefits. Friendly work environment. Flexible to take time off. Good at finding last minute coverage.

    Cons

    Mandatory over time. Twelve hour shifts are difficult when you work three in a row. Short staffed at times.

    Pros

    Compensation in my department is not bad, but could always be better. PTO is great. Wellness incentives with insurance.

    Cons

    Management has no clinical experience. Loyalty and longevity are rewarded over hard work - only 2% annual raise no matter how productive and efficient you are. Things move very slowly here - changes are slow. Lots of employees have become complacent and have lost their energy. However, their longevity is financially rewarded. Health insurance is awful! Will only have HSA option in 2016 :(

    Advice to Management

    Listen and make changes that make sense. Focus on retaining your hard working employees, not simply rewarding loyalty and laziness.

    Pros

    After 25 years here, I can say this hospital system is a great place to work and I'm lucky to have had such a wonderful experience! I have worked in 5 different departments (by choice) and learned so much. Some managers have been better than others, but you have that in every company. I have worked with some really smart, caring physicians and nurses who really put patient care first.

    Cons

    Our insurance plan is changing next year and will be much more expensive - seems ironic that employees of a health care system don't have a good, affordable health insurance plan!

    Advice to Management

    Some departments are becoming too "top heavy" - don't forget that the worker bees are critical!

    Pros

    If you are looking for a place that encourages work/life balance then this place is for you. Don't expect more then that. Great place for the slackers to get promoted. Annual incentive bonuses slowly going away.

    Cons

    Management will only promote favorites. Suggestions are seldom, if at all, considered from non salary position. The lazy get less work and the well organized, gets more responsibility. Worst health insurance I have ever seen, high co-pays, high deductibles, high premiums. Maximum annual increase is only 2%.
