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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Use to be a great place to work. You were welcomed and felt like you were valued. Not so much anymore.
    Good place to spend a couple of years learning to be a manager or a specific job but not worth staying on and making a career.

    Cons

    Upper management is focused on the bottom line only. Not on a balanced, reasoned approach in dealing with layoffs nor on actually planning ahead. Company goes through layoffs every 3 years.
    Many managers and outstanding employees who were doing outstanding jobs are being let go simply because they cost too much. A great deal of valued experience is being lost.
