Pros

Excellent benefit packages, pay for performance, team-oriented and collective responsibility.

Cons

Physicians dictate direction of organization and sometimes allowed to be disrespectful to staff, too much policy/procedure which impedes progress, too many new ideas/programs so becomes difficult to focus on one thing well.

Advice to Management

Change the organizational culture and you'll increase morale.

    Pros

    Pay is great, benefits great. Leading edge new technologies. Nice coworkers. Large, stable company. Strives to meet customer and employee expectations for excellence. Wonderful clinical resources that are just not available at other healthcare systems.

    Cons

    Management at my particular location are very critical, non supportive, and utilize threats & fear to motivate their staff. Culture of collaboration does not exist between staff and management. Some managers are friendly, while others are cold and hostile. Does not feel like a team environment. Most of the senior management does not respect the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Motivation through fear and threats lowers morale and performance.Performance review should also include praise for what is done well. Staff feel more engaged when they are given opportunity to share/be included in day to day activities.Positive support and resources helps employees to learn and grow in our roles.

    Pros

    Benefits, wage. Hours, facilities, good training.

    Cons

    Union, queen B mentality... years of employment vs capability rule the day. Still wish I never left.

    Advice to Management

    Look at experience verses years of employment history. You are missing valuable insight.
