Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Traverse City, MI

Pros

Most coworkers are easy to work with. Munson does help with continuing education.

Cons

Managers that respect other managers (team leads and project managers) more than technical staff. Some managers openly do not listen to worker input, especially on technical issues. Workers that are openly incompetent. Workers that are in work avoidance mode (spending more energy to keep from doing something than they would just doing their job).

Advice to Management

Reward good workers. Trim the dead wood that is weighing everyone down. Foster a environment where managers actually consider worker input.

    Pros

    Low stress, good hours, decent cafeteria, one of the only places to work in Traverse City besides a restaurant

    Cons

    Lots of slackers, hard work often not rewarded, everyone gets the same raise regardless of performance

    Advice to Management

    Reward the good employees and discipline or fire the slackers! My goodness - I thought this was common sense! Bring back the motivation or watch your best staff leave.

    Pros

    Like a lot of healthcare IT, it's generally a relaxed atmosphere. The general physical work conditions are pretty good.

    Cons

    Munson Healthcare is the only large IT shop in the area, and the largest single employer in the area. There's a perception that it gives management power of the employees. I've heard managers talking about blacklisting employee candidates for future positions when they turn down Munson because they can get better pay elsewhere. The joke here, often repeated by management, is "A view of the bay is worth half the pay." Even though the cost of living is as high or higher than other areas where pay is somewhat higher. And nobody can afford any housing with a hint of a view of the bay. Another issue is that management only values management. I've had a director level manager admit that technical people are not respected in the corporate culture. And the most technically advanced people are pushed out of technical work and into management if they want to advance. The IT shop actually created another level of junior managers from their technical staff at a time when management should be getting out of the way of people doing actual work.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing the people who do actual work instead of grooming managers.
