Current Employee - Chaplain Resident in Albuquerque, NM

I have been working at Presbyterian Healthcare Services as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

An organization committed to excellence and the ethical treatment of its employees
An organization with a strong, positive mission statement of customer service that it strives to follow with great diligence
A medical organization that sees health through the all three lenses of body, mind and spirit
Rust Medical Center in particular is outstanding for its sense of team and the integration of body, mind and spirit in an innovating environment striving for constant improvement

Cons

The work of resident chaplain and CPE student requires a lot of time and commitment to a rigorous process of formation (not really a con if you realize the result of this experience)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep holding to the Pres vision of medicine and healthcare that strives to integrate body, mind and spirit for patients, families, staff and the entire community

    Pros

    Large company with many opportunities, if you are lucky enough to have a manager who cares. Otherwise, consider your prospects for advancement limited at best, sabotaged at worst.

    Cons

    This company is in dire need of new blood. While many people have been with the company for many years, the experience you learn if you are new is great. However most are no longer effective and are "married" to the status quo. Don't even think about wanting to improve things. If the wrong manager catches wind of it, your life will be made miserable until you leave or they fire you. This company is about 10 years behind other insurance companies in terms of technology, client/customer/broker engagement and information tracking. There are no reporting mechanisms on the health plan side to really determine what works, what doesn't, where to really place sales strategy or the like. It really is just a shot in the dark or what underwriting may come up with statistically. There are so many manual processes that it is no wonder administration costs are so expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a program similar to Intel's where employees can switch jobs after two years on the job. Force some people to move around after 7 years at the job or if they are no longer effective. Have a truly confidential employee evaluation of management, you will be surprised what is revealed. There will most likely be many ideas and suggestions that would make things so much better, more efficient and most likely more profitable. Most people are afraid to speak up because of a fear of retaliation that does not lead to an effective and happy workforce. When people are more concerned with watching their backs, than doing their jobs, there's a problem.

    Pros

    Good salaries for the area, good benefits, leading healthcare provider in NM.

    Cons

    IT department is prone to outsourcing and poorly managed. Leadership in IT promotes a "culture of blame."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more leadership accountability and less finger pointing.
