    Pros

    Great benefit, flexible scheule. Great incentives to go back to school.

    Cons

    Micro-management. Too many CN IV's who don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified leaders & managers. Some managers are plain bad.

    Pros

    They used to have sodas and breakfast on Fridays. Their hospital x-ray machines overdosed over 200 people. If you are obsolete, they'll try to retain you.

    Cons

    Jealousy among peers exists if one has a skill the other doesn't. Technical skill is undervalued. More and more and more and more h1b contractors. People who are useful with technical skills are usually badmouthed by others due to jealousy and politics. No effort to upgrade skills of employees who are stagnant and obsolete.

    Advice to Management

    Control political nature of environment. EIS is supposed to be about technology, not about seniority, job titles, or trashing someone who has actual skill.

    Pros

    Good hospital, Good location, ok salary

    Cons

    They hire scientists who can't get a job anywhere else, are laid off from other places, want to use this as a paid retirement home, or those who are attracted to big fat compensation packages. People who know and value science and ethics will be laid off.....

    Advice to Management

    Shut down Research, will be better off...

    Pros

    Lots of job opportunities, good potential to transfer within CSMC. Nice facilities.

    Politics. Some people are overworked because their teammates slack off.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas; you don't have to agree but you should at least be willing to listen

    Pros

    Well know company – good reputation for health care

    Cons

    Employees have to pay for parking. Unrealistic expectations. Crazy time keeping restrictions.
    Favoritism is clearly present, a good example of this the unfair work allocation. Purchasing is worst department to work for in entire company. Management and Staff are very inflexible and ridged, not interested in change or new technology. Very fixed in continuing the status quo. The majority of the staff have held same job for 10 plus years and are so fixed on the way things have been done that they are petrified of change. Purchasing department has become the dinosaur of the company. Still using obsolete programs that IT no longer supports. Management refuses to update computer programs, processes or procedures due to staff’s resistance to change.

    Pros

    Management practiced an open door policy and senior management values the opinion of their employees by hosting an annual employee opinion survey and take action on the feedback.

    Cons

    Because this is a large non profit hospital employees are sometimes asked to do a lot more work without compensation increase.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open door policy. When additional work is asked of people and salary cannot be negotiated, maybe offering a spot bonus or other incentive would be considered.
