    I have been working at Cleveland Clinic full-time (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.

    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.
