I have been working at Adventist Medical Center full-time for less than a year

Pros

Staff and fellow employees are great to work with. Everyone seems to genuinly care about patient care and quality. Love the people I work with.

Cons

Managment not very informative. Have to ask multiple times for information through phone calls and email. Some questions never answered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Even though patient quality is our goal employees need to feel comfortable bringing up an issue, and not feel worried to ask you in fear of "bothering" you.

    Pros

    Great fellow employees. They've put a lot of money into improving the look of the hospital, which helps to make it a bit more pleasant to work in.

    Cons

    Poorly managed from top to bottom. Upper management gets its info from middle management who fails to support their employees and cares only about making themselves look good and promoting those whom they like on a personal level rather then those who are able to do the job best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aim higher. Recently AMC took a look at other hospitals and decided they were too good and needed to "head for the middle" - new AMC slogan, "Striving for Mediocrity."

    Employees are great! Then there is the leadership or lack of.

    Pros

    Best employees and hospitalist physicians of anywhere I have worked. You won't find more genuine people anywhere else. Lots of opportunity if you are Adventist.

    Cons

    Unless you are Adventist, you can only hold certain positions. Senior leadership is very out of touch with the employees. There is very little transparency between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees and good managers are scared to speak up for risk of retaliation. Try removing the "Adventist only" positions and you may get more qualified employees (we know you don't post them like this, but we are all aware this is the case). Build a relationship with the employees! They can offer great ideas and save the company a lot of money if you just develop a true relationship with them. Be more open with the employees. We will respect you more if we know what is going on.
