    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The pension is a plus, but that's only if you're able to become vested. The educational opportunities available to employees were also a nice perk.

    Cons

    1.) Unethical behavior supported by management. 2.) Poor communication by lower-level management. 3.) Backstabbing and spreading rumors by co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've known several former employees who were wonderful at their jobs but burnout got the best of them because of the lower level management and low morale. You're losing good employees and I suggest you find a way to fix it soon.

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center

    Pros

    Good pay. Committed to its mission of working with the poor.

    Cons

    upper management is extremely disorganized and changes from one initiative to another without explanation. Trying to establish data driven decisions but the workforce is about 10 years behind. Slow to make technology easily accessible and working properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bullying staff will get you know where. You are losing good staff because the upper management creates change that they don't totally understand and then expect high performance in a manner of weeks. Take a look at your goals and stick to them.

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Easy to find meaningful ways to help people from diverse backgrounds
    Always something going on; no chance of feeling bored
    Honorable organizational mission with staff involved who like to serve patients from diverse backgrounds.
    Energetic, teaching hospital environment. The hospital provides exceptional care.
    The best cafeteria food of all Twin Cities hospitals.

    Cons

    Disconnection of executive leadership to front-line staff as shown in the high rate of process changes, increasing expectations, and lack of tools to meet the expectations.
    Patient population with complex needs and lack of resources to address those needs, can lead to frustration.
    Aging infrastructure, and poorly enforced expectations regarding smoking and loitering on the grounds.
    Poor work-life balance opportunities e.g., no good work-out options, child-care, flexible work schedules, etc.

    Great pension if you can handle staying there long enough to be vested.

    Best benefits of any job I've had, top pay, and great people!

    It's a hospital so lots of sick people so you must be good at keeping yourself well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have 1 on 1's monthly with your employees. Check in with them, even though they are getting paid well, just see how they are doing.

    Pros

    work around your schedule. give you hours if you want them and not if you dont.

    Cons

    some of the management...is rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees more rather than play favoritism. Everyone deserves to be treated equally, not just people who you personally like for whatever reason.

    Pros

    The organizations mission and the dedication of the staff to serve the local community. Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Dis-functional departments and too many silos. Managers do not seem to understand what is going on within their department or outside their department. Lack of growth opportunities. If you are ambitious I will recommend to try to lean as much as you can about the department you are join to make sure it is a good fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on breaking down the silos that exist through out the organization. The place is been managed as a government entity and not as a not for profit focused on providing efficient and cost effective services. Too much waste. Also increase the focus on the outreach to more paying patients.

    Management, Scheduling, shortages of staffing, professionalism.

    Employees who are there to actually work should be rewarded and used as the example and not taken advantage of and abused for those that just take up space.
