I have been working at Group Health full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Health benefits and paid time off are fantastic. Some very smart and interesting people. Salaries are getting better and an improved effort on training managers.

Cons

It goes through cycles of spending and drastic reductions. Some people go there to retire and only do the minimum required. People who work hard only get a pat on the back and a smile.

Advice to Management

Find ways to motivate and reward staff, the mission itself is not enough.

    I have been working at Group Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As of now there are a diverse amount of services and specialty services that are offered here. There is a variety of providers and clinics that cater to unique treatment through the latest technology. There has been an impressive amount of high quality special care.

    Cons

    It is very stressful to be here since we never truly know what is going on. Rumors continue to persist until they become fact and there is little to no warning when this actually happens. It can often lead to hopelessness. There is a lack of regard for impacted staff.

    Advice to Management

    Do not hint at what's around the corner. Just rip the band-aid off; get the bad news over and done with now rather than lingering on with eliminating positions or layoffs. Keeping the details private is not fair to us employees, we deserve to know. Prevention is key; exercise this philosophy.

    I worked at Group Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits Don't have to work very hard As long as you don't challenge your boss or any executives you'll be fine

    Cons

    Non existent strategy. Realization that this is the case leads to copying of what other system's strategies were years ago. Shifting away from all values to focus only on the $ Fails to make decisions or execute. Tenure matters. Feels a bit like a union shop in the leadership ranks. Promotion by sticking around.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to someone like Kasier who truly values and cares about integrated healthcare
