I have been working at HealthEast Care System full-time (less than a year)

Pros

work life balance, flexible schedule, great people, the company was built on solid values and is doing it's best to maintain this foundation while keeping up with the demands on healthcare systems these days, tuition reimbursement, PTO is very competitive

Cons

uncertain future (which is the same for most healthcare systems in this economy and with healthcare reform)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To compete with other employers and maintain the honor of Best Place to Work, empower employees with control over their schedules when possible. Keep in the direction of flexible work schedules as well as offering work from home opportunities for employees occassionally.

    Decades behind in standard business practices, especially quality and general management. Very non-diverse in beliefs.

    I worked at HealthEast Care System

    Pros

    Overall mission of company is honorable. Wants to be a top medical player in the country. Some smart people who stick around because they've worked out comfortable work schedules.

    Cons

    Innovation is a negative word--everyone is afraid of change. Top management is highly dysfunctional and very ineffective, including HR. Not for people who are cutting edge in their fields and ambitious to make improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for deadweight in management. Eliminate those who don't practice the values and who are yes men who are actually quite incompetent.

    I have been working at HealthEast Care System full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    HealthEast has always provided opportunities for me to grow and find positions that accommodate my needs. I absolutely love my job and the people I work with, and I am compensated well for my skills and take pride in my work.

    HealthEast provides generous amounts of PTO, retirement savings matching, fitness and well-being classes, and many more great benefits.

    Cons

    Some management is hit or miss and poor managers or employees not pulling their weight are not often dealt with or moved out quickly. I would not say that this is a large problem but it exists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VBI is not a one-size-fits-all approach in this type of environment and seems to be producing some discord with employees who are not finding it valuable.

    There is a point where LEAN is too lean.
