I worked at Spectrum Health as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

There are great people to work with
There's very good job security
Most managers allow for flexible work hours

Cons

It's a big organization, so things move very slowly
At times there is a lot of pressure. Lives are on the line, but that's what you signed up for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing. Maybe make the push to speed things up a little on the internal processes.

    I worked at Spectrum Health as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Spectrum has great potential and lots of money to make things happen. Their direction for patient's to have one stop shopping for start to finish medical care is a worthy goal. Facilities are top notch.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, different entities in the system are not well coordinated and work awkwardly together in the cases that I have seen. There is a great focus on quality control and backward looking metrics, such as problem reporting and corrective action documentation. Too little resources are devoted to adequate staffing and support so that the problems don't occur in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are trying to fix a system that is inherently flawed, instead of creating systems with the right people in place to get tasks done correctly the first time. Many entities in the organization do not have a sense of urgency with regard to proper patient care.

    I have been working at Spectrum Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is an excellent staff, and work environment throughout my department and it seems throughout the entire organization. There is constant positive reinforcement, and they are always looking to assist with individuals looking to get to the next "rung" of the ladder.

    Cons

    Through word of mouth I have heard that there a few (VERY few) teams that may not have such a positive work environment. However, it's hard to have all teams and departments be perfect at such a large organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
