Pros

Excellent pay and benefits. Strong values.

Cons

Although there is a strong sense of values, there are (with every company) politics with upper management. I have a horrible boss and nothing is done about her work ethic.

    Pros

    This place used to be innovative & drive for excellence, now it's run by tyrants.

    Cons

    This place WAS great... Now it’s the personal piggy bank of the NEW CIO to fund his old company. So much for cutting ties.

    Leadership no longer cares about the values that are so loudly touted, but never enforced. With a useless/powerless HR department who can't enforce anything to a CEO who is only looking at what she can do to further her carrier outside of the Health System (her contract is up in less than 2 years).

    Major projects that the CIO was brought onboard to champion & COMPLETE have instead been handed over to others below him. This is seen as a promotion by these people, but instead is an effort of the CIO to distance himself from a failing project. Instead of this being a promotion, this is instead more rope. This major re-work of the environment only spells disaster. This has left employees to defend for their jobs on a daily basis while the leadership sits in their Ivory Tower.

    Support groups have been reorganized to no longer report to those who care for & nurture the employees to bring the best success. Instead they are now reporting to a tyrant in hopes to drive the teams away from working at the health system. The commitment to the organization was to never cut headcount, but nothing was said about making this place miserable for those who have dedicated years of their lives to the success of this organization and it's commitment to the community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch your current "ground breaking effort" in technology & listen to the experts you have hired. You are going to only hurt yourselves and the community. You've made promises to not cut anyone in this process, but obviously this is a lie. First you will attempt to drive people from the organization by playing political mind games, allowing you to stick w/ your "commitment". Once the exodus occurs, you'll re-evaluate who is left, put them through the hell of transitioning everything to the new and "improved" model & then fire those who are left behind, handing the reigns over the Blue Mountain Labs and their army of consultants.
