Pros

The Cleveland Clinic employs the most people in Northeast Ohio and is the second largest employer in the state of Ohio. The compensation and benefits package are comprehensive and fair. It is a world class facility with world class resources and a great place to gain experience and have on your resume.

Cons

Being a vast institution does not necessarily lend itself well to employee career development and it can be easy to get lost in the shuffle at the Cleveland Clinic. Also, managerial oversight can be lacking due to the size of the institution and great responsibility and workload placed on management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managerial leadership skills development courses would go a long way in grooming the management and human resources cadre to be more effective in their positions and develop a better rapport with their subordinates. Personality conflicts and other workplace problems will arise at a large institution such as this. In regards to these matters, Management/Human Resources should take skills building courses where they are involved in scenarios and have to focus on facts rather than opinion and explanations of the involved parties to arrive at appropriate decisions in managing these situations. Clear, concise and explicit explanations to all Cleveland Clinic policies should be covered with Cleveland Clinic employees.

    Pros

    Benefits - health insurance
    There are some good hard working people who want to see things change.

    Cons

    Organization lacks sophistication in decision making, has dismal employee development programs and is not open to new ideas. There are too many chiefs bossing around and throwing weight around for no reason. Titles don't go with salaries and titles don't mean much. Like any other healthcare organization there is growing discontent among physicians and management, each think the other is lazy/incompetent or building turf.
    Not a place for someone who is driven and has a natural disposition to learn/grow.
    Because employees work in same position for decades, people are resistant to change, see younger talent as threat and don't care about improvement.
    All the senior management cares about is growing their turf and protecting it, even if it reflects on poor performance.
    If you are lazy or incompetent or aspire to be a sloth or if you were a high school cheer leader, you will still have a job. I can't imagine working with some of the people here, physicians might be brilliant but the staff clearly lacks any sort of sophistication.
    Still a not-for-profit at the end of the day. Explain what is NPV or IRR or DCF or simple profitability concepts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rotate senior leadership
    Promote ideas (just don't say it)
    Teach physicians humility and how to respect employees
    Curb egos
    Cut down number of chiefs and increase worker-bees to get job done
    Hire people from out of state (out of Cleveland area) and hire people from for-profit sectors
