    I have been working at Cleveland Clinic full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours (research), health center, one of the few biotech opportunities in northern OH

    Cons

    Institution doesn't support basic science research as much as clinical; more interested in saving $ than supporting research. Spent a ton of money on "engagement"- yet really never followed through. It's all about "looking" like the greatest employer than actually BEING one. (i.e.- if a PI brings in $$- then they can treat their employees as nasty as they like). I have a great boss- but many PI's are not respectful.

    I worked at Cleveland Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and great co-workers, The newest equipment and technology at some locations, but not all. Cutting edge treatment and research and great staff physicians to consult,

    Cons

    Poor management. Top level managers have no connection or interest in employees or the job they do. Advancement based on politics not qualifications. Very stressful work environment with the use of intimidation and bulling of employees. Always in fear of loosing job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employees based on experience and qualifications, Stop being bosses and start being leaders. Lead your staff to success.

    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.
