I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

Pros

The pension is a plus, but that's only if you're able to become vested. The educational opportunities available to employees were also a nice perk.

Cons

1.) Unethical behavior supported by management. 2.) Poor communication by lower-level management. 3.) Backstabbing and spreading rumors by co-workers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I've known several former employees who were wonderful at their jobs but burnout got the best of them because of the lower level management and low morale. You're losing good employees and I suggest you find a way to fix it soon.

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center

    Pros

    Good pay. Committed to its mission of working with the poor.

    Cons

    upper management is extremely disorganized and changes from one initiative to another without explanation. Trying to establish data driven decisions but the workforce is about 10 years behind. Slow to make technology easily accessible and working properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bullying staff will get you know where. You are losing good staff because the upper management creates change that they don't totally understand and then expect high performance in a manner of weeks. Take a look at your goals and stick to them.

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Easy to find meaningful ways to help people from diverse backgrounds
    Always something going on; no chance of feeling bored
    Honorable organizational mission with staff involved who like to serve patients from diverse backgrounds.
    Energetic, teaching hospital environment. The hospital provides exceptional care.
    The best cafeteria food of all Twin Cities hospitals.

    Cons

    Disconnection of executive leadership to front-line staff as shown in the high rate of process changes, increasing expectations, and lack of tools to meet the expectations.
    Patient population with complex needs and lack of resources to address those needs, can lead to frustration.
    Aging infrastructure, and poorly enforced expectations regarding smoking and loitering on the grounds.
    Poor work-life balance opportunities e.g., no good work-out options, child-care, flexible work schedules, etc.
