Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Walnut, CA

I worked at John Muir Health as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

The people at JMH from the hospital maintenance staff through the executive leadership are experienced and dedicated. The facilities are first rate, compensation is good.

Cons

The company is struggling with cost cutting measures that has the workforce very concerned. An aging workforce and the rapid pace of change means that JMH will experience a lot of turnover in the coming year or so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do your very best to manage your cost cutting exercises so that you don't decimate morale and compromise quality.

    I worked at John Muir Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people - non-management employees and hospital folks were great to work with
    Good benefits for management - pay is above market but the real bucks start at Director level
    Big, slow organization - no innovation, infrastructure is from 1990s

    Cons

    Accountability is not important
    Senior leadership lacks controls over e-business Directors; high turnover rates in department
    Big, slow organization - used paper time sheets and manual reviews up to 2012, for 6500 employees.

    I have been working at John Muir Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upper 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.
