    Pros

    the overall mission and vision of the company is evident even at the staff level - and thats encouraging - thanks

    Cons

    employees are quickly tracked as staff or management and they will likely live out the duration of their career in that track

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    encourage individuals to either perform and improve or move on - allowing the "doers" to rise and be properky rewarded for their efforst

    Residents are the "whipping boy" (and girl, of course!) for hospital management systemwide, and particularly, here..

    Pros

    Decent benefits with 2% annual raises.
    Some great support staff (nurses).
    Exposure to myriad of rare health issues benefits education.
    Davinci robot training.

    Cons

    Inadequate allotment of education time in contrast to other neighboring programs.
    Minimal concern for safety of staff given patient population.
    "Monday morning quarterbacking" is counterproductive and denigrates moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on enhancing the quality of the residency (rather than revenue and ROI) by providing additional resident resources: more research time earlier (during pgy2), less OB call, metal detectors at the entrance to the hospital before a Hopkins-like event, proactive secuirty measures when patients become verbally obscene, or perhaps even further increasing the number of residents. The program currently teeters on malignancy (50+ clinic patients per hour!?) and it is your responsibility to make improvements.
