    I worked at John Muir Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The organization is full of dedicated and hard working employees that take patient care and quality as their core priority.
    The organization is trying to position itself to address the challenges of the healthcare environment in which they are delivering services and subsequently have had to make difficult program and staffing decisions. They have done these in a compassionate and transparent manner as possible. The organization will continue to have to consolidate and restructure to be financially strong in the coming years. This will mean all departments and services will be doing more with less and existing staff will be challenged with additional responsibilities and less distributed tasks.

    Cons

    As with all large organizations pockets of disfunction and poor leadership exists within the organization as well as pockets of enlightened and engaged leadership. There does continue to be very different cultures at the various campuses and entities. Again, some enlightened and some not. The sense of being overwhelmed is slowly moving up the chain of command from managers, directors, to the VP and Cxx levels. The organizations ability to prioritize their efforts will be a key to their longterm viability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unaddressed organizational disfunction and poor leadership will serve as an increasing drag on your healthcare and market aspirations. A more widespread and broad-based use of blind HR-led 360 reviews of Leadership/Sr. Leadership will help ferret out the leaders that are not practicing nor modeling the John Muir Leadership Values. Quick responses to incidents of organizational bullying, intimidation, pettiness, retribution and public humiliation by all those in leadership positions and especially Sr Leaders will set the necessary tone to move the organization forward in a healthy way. The organization can be "lean" and efficient and not have to give in to "mean" to accomplish it.

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

    Pros

    Prestige. Great town Walnut Creek. Well respected place. New construction. Generous with giving to good places. Try hard to do good work (Cancer Institute/Genetic Counseling). Many very very hard working and caring people there in many departments. The two I mention were very devoted to doing great work. Many women. Everyone works to get along and do laughing also. Win "best of's" and get great reviews and certifications. Very strong devoted axillary and many many volunteers and volunteer hours. Treat volunteers in departments like gold. Great computer and management classes and intranet classifieds and weekly paper of news.

    Cons

    They "don't like to hire more people in support positions that do not directly make money like a billable doctor would create. At the time if someone left they spread the work around to others instead of hiring a replacement. They say and I saw--hospitals move at a Glacial pace which I didn't know. I don't care for a glacial pace and change structure. Cost cutting when budget got difficult last 3rd of year. Everyone not nailed down got let go.
