I worked at Sanford Health full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

If you worked at the Main Campus or if you have half the alphabet at the end of your name, life was pretty good. I guess the drug rep lunches we got were okay. I had a good group of co-workers.

Cons

Where do I begin? First off, management who got their positions because of the aforementioned half the alphabet at the end of their names who had no clue of management or leadership. Raises were pathetic, especially after hearing this or that announcement about their most recent expansion. Getting time off was like pulling teeth - I left with 210 hours of PTO, nice check but would have liked to taken more of it. In my area there was absolutely zero opportunity for advancement. Also, a lot of backstabbing and gossip to put up with. I could go on and on but I think you get the picture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit worrying so much about putting the Sanford logo on every athletic venue in the area and start paying attention to your employees. Beyond that, I think the resignation of about 15 or 20 senior executives would be helpful. Recognize that people without any alphabet at the end of their names are also worthy team members.

    I worked at Sanford Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good experience, loved patients and families

    Cons

    Management was TERRIBLE - actually illegal - discussed employee private info with other employees, threatened and made fun of some employees, and encouraged staff-splitting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is going on in outlying facilities - 100% turnover rate should send a message.
