    A very difficult transition with no "on boarding' process at all and no indoctrination as to the working protocols.

    Former Employee - Senior Director in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was amazing to witness the healing and recovery work from catastrophic illness. The experience enlightened me as to the challenges of administering care

    Cons

    -The politics
    Rule by innuendo
    no forum for conflict resolution
    -Costs before comprehensive care
    -Sporadic infrastructure applications
    -Consider deferred salary structure to keep incomes from tax devastation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Listen to more than one viewpoint, weigh the complications of a decision
    -Consider patient care first, not just a rhetorical comment.
    -DO away with the antiquated management style of governess
    -Get a better understanding of manipulative behaviors by rumor and innuendo
    -Dispel the environment of fear, it is counter productive to empathy and recovery.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Leadership generally open to individual strengths.

    Cons

    Sometimes don't walk the talk. Too much focus on leadership training and not enough on the front line development. Could use more OD interventions on all levels: individual, small group, and organization wide strategies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for different perspectives and get rid of status hierarchy. Don't discount what people bring to their jobs from former experiences.

    Patient Assistant Volunteer at Taussig

    Current Employee - Patient Service Representative in Cleveland, OH
    Current Employee - Patient Service Representative in Cleveland, OH

    I have been working at Cleveland Clinic part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent, dedicated staff. Staff members really care about the patients that they serve. I also like the fact that the physicians are salaried, It would seem like that would save money by avoiding unnecessary tests, etc.

    Cons

    I'm only a volunteer so there may be things that would bother paid employees to which I am not exposed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None from me.

    HIM Coder Trainee

    Former Employee - HIM Coder Trainee in Cleveland, OH
    Former Employee - HIM Coder Trainee in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    None, HIM should focus of obtaining a process where they could screen potential coders other than HR. Along with having a broader qualifications to being a coder such as prior clinical experience as allied health professional or MD/DO knowledge set should be considered experience for being an HIM Coder I, I, II, or IV.

    Cons

    Low pay. Based upon cost of living and commuting. HR wants certain individuals to only work for 12.45$/hr?!?!?!?!?!?!
    What is the point of acquiring higher education when I can work elsewhere for the same amount and be GM at a restaurant chain? CCF gains monetary funds from various sources yet can not fairly compensate their coding department?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone a chance not who HR think is a good "fit". Hiring MGMT should conduct hiring screening which probably would shorten the time for job applicants seeking employment a faster process.
