    I worked at Jackson Health System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work as it allows you to become involved in many areas of the system. As a director I attended various meetings that kept abreast of operations system wide. The CEO has townhall meetings as well to keep all informed and has done a great job at turning the hospital system around in a challenging economy even though it's a public hospital system. The JHS system also provides retirement vesting after 6 years of service with employee involvement of 3 percent. During my last three years I saw the transition into software to be more effective i.e. Kronos, Compliance 360, etc. Lastly, salaries are often a bit higher than other organizations.

    Cons

    Very challenging environment as it's a public hospital system and often you have fewer staff than at other compatible hospitals. If you have a certification and are not part of the medical specialties you are on your own i.e. for continuing education, organization fees, annual meetings - however they will provide the time for you to attend as training time. Example my annual cost was $160.00 for association, $1,150.00 for annual meeting and hotel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the non medical professionals to support their association dues, continuing education and annual meeting fees (hotel & meeting cost).

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, good company culture. They are improving the facilities and have a strong focus on customer service. The new "Miracles Made Daily" campaign is also nice.

    Cons

    Pay increases have been frozen for a while so you patience is a necessity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Succession planning would help with employee engagement. In lieu of money, employee recongition would go a long way.

    I have been working at Jackson Health System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly place. One huge campus where, if you're open, you have the opportunity to learn more than at any other institution. It's the third largest public institution in the US. If something is going to happen, it will happen here. World class care; world class experience.

    Cons

    When you work for a County hospital it's one big family…that all gives back 8% of their paycheck. Take that into account when you negotiate your salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to employees is key and this is what you do! Excellent in this area!

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits that include a lot of time off.

    Cons

    Very political organization, senior management with lack of skills and lack of decision making skills, senior management not understanding the business and busy runing from one meeting to another one. It is a very manual enviromment with a lot of unions that do not want to change the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employees and end users. Pay attention to what employees wants and needs.
