Pros

Low pressure. Often non-confrontational. Dominant within market.

Cons

Many employees continue in their tasks putting in 1-2 hours of real work per day. Huge issues with management being unaware/unaccepting of the reality of low employee productivity. Conflicts of interest tolerated within reporting relationships. Many spend time gossipping, on the phone, shopping, visiting, or away from the job. Accountability is not there - for those workers or for the leaders who tolerate it. Workloads are poorly distributed, with those who are favored having far less. Some employees apparently set their own hours daily, wear what they please, and spend most of their days talking. Somehow the work gets done but not due to the interest or participation of leadership. Many employees could be let go today with tremendous savings to the plan - and productivity would actually increase because they wouldn't be there dragging down the real workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Engage. Spend some time and do an analysis of staffing and who does what, who is cooperative and positive, and who is poisonous. Weed out those who are bad rather than ignoring or promoting. Don't be so disengaged and unaware of this; instead, cull the workforce and promote performers.

    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.

    Pros

    People are very friendly
    Employee perks
    Increasing focus on employee wellness

    Cons

    Silos.......keep building them higher and wider
    People coming & going all the time - not a lot of visible attempts to support the "left behind"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to middle management and employee morale - the constant change needs to be managed to retain the good vibe.
