    Pros

    Ultimate goal of being patient centered makes me proud of the work that is done.
    Very much a team approach to the work done.
    The voice of all employees at all levels is heard when looking at improving processes

    Cons

    Our patient population is heavy MA and Medicare which reimburses us very little for services. This forces the organization to be very focused on cost and constantly balancing expenditures. Not necessarily something that is in Deans control, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to spend more on things such as employee events, furniture, staffing.

    I worked at Dean Health Systems

    Pros

    In the right department, managers can be very invested in the development and growth of their staff. Benefit of a smaller company, it is easy to network within the company and across departments, making it less work to engage in cross-functional projects.

    Cons

    It is a smaller company and therefore not able to compete as well with larger companies to keep quality staff - counter-offers to maintain top-caliber employees simply do not happen, not to mention performance-related raises are meager and bonuses non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and honest disclosure with major decisions and initiatives. Show that you appreciate your hard-working non-exec staff when it counts, or you are going to effectively dis-incent hard work and results in the long run.

    I have been working at Dean Health Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Coworkers are generally positive and loyal toward one another. I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects and develop solid skill set.

    Cons

    Work-life balance stinks. My experience with mid-level management is that they're either over-bearing or woefully incompetent. The once fairly positive culture is now muddied since the merger with SSM.

    Pros

    Dean Clinic offered exceptional benefits when I was there. I don't know how things may change in the future now that they have been bought by SSM

    Cons

    Seems things have gone backward since the merger. Superstar CEO and most of senior leadership left, so company lost momentum on some great strategic initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change the culture. It was really good before the merger.

    I have been working at Dean Health Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Payed time off (ETO time) is generous. Some of the doctors are great to work with, as are many of the staff.

    Cons

    Insurance premiums go up every year, coverages goes down. Management plays favorites. There is retribution for complaining. Direct manager does not understand how/what people in my position do, therefore cuts hours of staff in my position, but not of staff she favors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the employee survey may show an overall level of contentment, be more aware of clinics/departments where employees are not happy and take a closer look at those managers. There are some managers who have staff fearful of complaining because of retribution or bad reviews.
