Monetarily rewarding but disappointing in other aspects

Project and Support Analyst (Current Employee)

ProsGood (local) reputation, Magnet ratings, competitive compensation, good benefits. Most workers are hard working and want to see JMH succeed.

ConsPoor management, too many chiefs, some not honest and interested with managed employees. JMH recently hired an outside firm who inaccurately assessed the staff in a long term audit. JMH is currently going through staff reductions, recommended by an this outside firm in order to stay afloat in an attempt to administer the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management - Evaluate your coordinators (managers) at the corporate office (IT) and determine if they are really needed. In my group, they tend to assign non-effective additional "busy work" in an already short staffed group, to justify their role in management. Don't assume you will be getting accurate employee review data from these managers who depend on input from a "trusted" inside favored employee. Managers: Favored employees are biased and are not a reliable source of information for review content and rating of their fellow workers reviews. Instead, all clinical IT managers should be required to work in the clinical setting (hospital), not out of the corporate office, where they are unaware of what in going on, including the supported departmental needs and dynamics. In short, you need to know what your staff does in order to effectively manage them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
