    Pros

    Its a great place IF and that's a bit IF you are within the Golden Circle. If not, management will make your life a living hell. The "Pro" is only if you are in that Golden Circle.

    Cons

    Way too many to list, however - lack of communication and clear direction is a huge problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your stated business culture a reality. Don't just talk the talk - walk the walk and provide beneficial guidance for specific projects to employees. They cannot know what you want by osmosis.

    Pros

    Good healthcare benefits. Some employees who truly care about trying to do a good job in less than ideal circumstances.

    Cons

    Management has been promoted to positions of incompetence. Lengths of service stretching over decades has led to a workforce that is stale on present day leadership skills and technology/software utilization resulting in inefficiency and few opportunities for advancement. Leadership style and culture is not one which empowers or respect employee input resulting in low morale and reduced efforts by employees who could make a difference. Communication is a filtered one-way street. Compensation is below market for comparable positions outside the healthcare industry.
