Pros

If you like serving others then this is a great place to be. Every department has the ability to make a difference.

There should be more support / communication within the immediate Manager Team for the employees that support them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give better details of what is expected and provide ALL the necessary tools to do the jobs efficiently.

    Pros

    Great compensation and work/life balance. I worked on-call for 3.5 years and short hour (16 hr/week) for the latter 1.5 years of my employment, being able to work on average of 24-32 hours a week by picking up additional hours. The atmosphere around the hospital is generally positive, and there are a lot of neat events to partake in such as the Friday Farmer's Market and wellness celebrations at the adjacent Mosswood Park.

    Cons

    Favoritism was a major culprit in this department's lackluster management. Even as I often voluntarily covered specific shifts workable around my schedule from those who called in sick, I found myself reassigned elsewhere with double workload because another cross-covering lab assistant didn't want to "do a different job title's work." Complaining to the manager only resulted in me being admonished because I "wasn't being a team player." If you work here, bond with your co-workers, as they generally want to help and defend you.
    Also, transferring to another facility can deem difficult because most other facilities are under a different bargaining unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your employees; many of the veteran techs, scientists, and support staff know what they are doing. if you want to change something, seek input from and work with them since making numbers and figures more efficient doesn't always necessarily translate well on the bench.

    Pros

    Great benefits, 403b matching contributions, overall good work/life balance, excellent health benefits, great mission statement and most employees strive to live up to it

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement, limited training opportunities; too many layers and politics; high emphasis on optics and not enough on substance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more hands on and focus on business and care execution and less on politics.
