I have been working at Methodist Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Several locations in the Memphis metro area to choose from.

Cons

Benefits are sub-par. They do give you what they call pto- paid time off. No- this is not your vacation time. This is your EVERYTHING! Forced holidays spread throughout the year, if you happen to get sick... leaves very little time for actual vacation. Retirement is all on you as an associate, but they do actually offer a fairly substantial mach program. Insurance is pretty much a joke, my spouse's company is much better, although what they offer is better than nothing.

Culture is horrible, despite regularly contracting outside assistance, nothing actually changes. Leadership (both at the senior and mid levels) do not live the values they preach.

Career advancement is null and void unless you happen to be best friends with someone. Rewards are often based on who you know rather then what you know (Aptitude, skill set, experience, tenure... these are unknown words to this organization). This mind set for advancement/reward is easily seen through the inadequate Leadership staffed at all levels of the organization.

This company has the worst cliques I have ever experienced in a professional setting. Staff often make assumptions, which creates nonexistent issues, instead of just asking. Competition is out of control and one person will often take credit for something they didn't do. "Teamwork" is like a fairy tale here. It's like working with a group of unprofessional individuals who act like children!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of most of the leadership team and start from scratch. Replace them with individuals who really understand what it is to work in a professional setting.

    Pros

    Flexibility in balancing work and personal life. Very good benefits with a nice 403B match. Good career opportunities

    Cons

    Communication to Associates about "Big" picture plans, strategies. Seems to get caught up in too many Culture Changing programs recommended by consultants. Leadership often times doesn't live the values that they are selling in their meetings and flyers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on appreciation, sincerity and accept the feedback offered.

    Pros

    Visionary leadership, committed to serving patients and their families in their time of need, great people and heart-driven sevice

    Cons

    Pay not top of market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer greater promotion opportunities and pay reward, esp to younger professionals, in order to keep them throughout their career; Work-life balance really needs to become a part of the culture in order for employees to feel personally valued and more invested in their work and work family.
