    Pros

    Excellent focus on patient care, sound fiscal practices, respectable pay/benefits, appear to value their employees

    Cons

    competition/growing pains, (at the time) change in management was rather shaky, fierce competition from other major systems compel them to cut corners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on what you do best - patient care, the rest will follow. Trust in your skilled help to do their jobs, and give them the tools and the freedom to do it right!

    I worked at Froedtert Health

    Pros

    Salary, vacation, flexible schedule. If your position in the hospital allows it, you are allowed to leave if you are done for the day.

    Cons

    HR---they are VERY slow, and their internal application process is a pain and hard to navigate. Can't get a hold of anyone in HR either except for the girl working the front desk.
    Also, I find it hard to move up there. I obtained my degree while working in the kitchen. I tried to apply for multiple positions after I graduated and was told I was either over qualified or I just couldn't do a job because it required a masters. Its also very tough to land an interview even if you currently work for Froedtert. I applied for about 15 positions before I was called for one. They should really be taking internal applicants first and making calls out to them. When you've put in 4 dedicated years, have a degree, and are internal and you're not getting a call back, it makes you wonder how much they actually really appreciate you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None specifically. Just depends who your manager is and if they are professional and work well with you. Each one is different.

    Pros

    Froedtert has an ability to grow with the demand of healthcare. The company system wide is now in a growing movement and is concentrated on market-share. I believe the system and the teams that are leading the way have good intentions and are responding to the community's needs. The clinical staff are devoted to the patients and customers. The senior staff are just as dedicated to the clinical staff.

    Cons

    The system is in growing pains as a large growth pattern has emerged. Each part of the system seems to be going through a learning curve as they remove silos and start to work as one large system.

    Pros

    Froedtert has the best benefits and compensation in the area compared to other medical centers. It has flexible scheduling options. Froedtert also offers great education opportunities.

    Cons

    Recently, benefits for vacation were cut. Management cited that "Obamacare" was a reason that employees had to take a cut in benefits in order to contain costs which is interesting since Froedtert now is doing better financially. Recently, a company was hired to improve efficiency and nursing jobs were not filled leaving the units painfully short. Interestingly, no management positions were cut or reassigned. Froedtert is exceptionally meeting heavy. Parking is oftentimes an issues. Management can be unapproachable. Unfortunately, it seems like Froedtert is becoming more like their competition and work conditions are getting worse.

    Working part-time offers me work life balance. The company supports furthering education.

    Working at different locations can take some extra planning but it's not bad and mileage is reimbursed.
