    Pros

    I enjoyed the paycheck (even though not competitive).

    I stopped working there.

    Good people to work with (coworkers)

    Cons

    Management is clueless, not from them being incompetent but rather the rules of the organization from the top

    Attendence point system does not allow for real illnesses. Doctor's notes do not excuse absences (ironic?)

    Engagement focus was out of control. Just hire good workers instead of evaluating workers engagement all the time.

    The clinic is too big. I felt isolated and unable to enhance my career there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating everyone the exact same like we are numbers. Hire managers that are people persons who could be taught the business aspects instead of just promoting the most effective worker to management. At lot of managers do not know how to deal with people and arent able to connect on a personal level.

    Pros

    Shift differential is great when working nights

    Cons

    Unlike other local hospitals, no bonus is given for coming in on your nights off

    Advice to Management

    Don't get rid of charge bonuses

    Pros

    The work-life balance is really good! If you want a stable job then this is a good place to work. This is a great place to start your career and learn the basics. The health benefits are great along with the retirement benefits.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement or career growth. They stress career development but no one takes it seriously. The pay is not up to standards.

    Advice to Management

    Management should put the right people in the right jobs. Sometimes people are in the wrong position but got there on who they know. Management does do a good job on learning about their employees. Some have trouble using their employees skills to the best of their abilities though.

    Pros

    (1) decent health benefits, (2) access to some of the best health care in the US and abroad, (3) interesting work, (4) liberal PTO, (5) satisfaction in knowing you are able to help patients

    Cons

    Because the Clinic is such a large organization, there are many divisions, and, of course, department directors, managers and supervisors. It is up to the manager's discretion how to enforce certain rules and regulations regarding time management and other issues that can affect employee morale. As a result, there can be dissention among the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    There should be separate policies and procedures for hospital/clinic facilities with direct patient care, and for business office personnel who only work weekdays and have no direct patient care.
    Management should be consistent in enforcing the policies for their specific lines of business. No employees' workday should depend on whether the manager is in a good mood, or a bad mood that day, yet it happens, and it is very stressful.
    The mantra is, "work harder, faster, smarter" but if a department has been doing that for several years, burn-out is inevitible.

    Pros

    I am very satisfied as a Cleveland Clinic employee. I feel CCF invests in employees. At CCF a registered nurse would find a culture that promotes professional development. There are ample opportunities for growth as a registered nurse in this hospital system.

    Cons

    From my experience the pay is lower than similar hospitals in the area.

    Pros

    Deep dive into variety of the dynamics of healthcare and in particular this institution.

    Cons

    Organizational inertia, weak decision making, very difficult to execute given various constituents with various motivations, all heavily colored by weaker incentives involved in a non profit

    Advice to Management

    Do more to empower business leaders who are not physicians

    Pros

    Research facilities are up to date and very helpful with a state of the art imaging core, animal facilities and various other core services. Also, clinical and translational research is improved greatly with access to the hospital and clinicians who are eager to be involved in research.

    Cons

    The pay isn't very competitive for technicians/technologists (BS/MS level employees). While there is a large research component to the hospital, it feels as if the research is not a priority or a concern to the highest of brass.
