    Pros

    Progressive leaders; wants to be innovative and lead the way in Healthcare; great benefits and team members who really care about doing a great job caring for our patients and one another. Great career development opportunities and lots of different ways to advance if you are a self-starter and willing to go the extra mile.

    Cons

    Healthcare is very challenging and changing all the time. Can be long hours. Can be variable deadlines and tight turnaround times. Not all healthcare workers want to change and so progress can be slow at times. Not all leaders great ones. But the changes are coming and those that embrace them will win.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more, tell the troops what is going on.

    Pros

    Large organization with many locations and departments. Many opportunities to move around and work in new areas. Exceptional benefits. Many exceptional front-line staff, but limited by union and/or culture of fear instilled from the top. CEO has a progressive vision - unfortunately, there is a huge gap between the culture/implementation and his vision. Work/life balance is reasonable.

    Cons

    Focus is purely on creating an external perception of excellence when reality is quite the opposite. While there are many opportunities to advance, the positions are often given to the "climbers/self-promoters or sycophants" and not to the high performers. Generally poor to average (at best) performance on quality and service Union mindset runs the place - creates environment where mediocrity is not only acceptable, but also rationalized. Culture is rife with fear - different viewpoints are not welcomed. No communication as to how NS as a whole is actually doing
    Generally poor performance on quality and service -

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk otherwise, skip the talk.

    You say you want to become an insurance company yet you keep buying hospitals and specialists and don't invest in many existing facilities - many of us are confused.

    Pros

    High performance, innovative health system
    Technology is advanced, ahead of the game
    Good pay, depending on position
    Great physicians

    Cons

    Management is authoritative
    Add on extra hours to shift with no notice and penalize you if you can't stay
    Unfriendly co-workers in other departments - seem to be in a bad mood all of the time and make it difficult to communicate

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so there is less mandatory overtime for the current staff
    Lead with encouragement and positive reinforcement, not by instilling fear in employees
    Possibly have attitude/communication workshops, or focus on the importance of friendliness and respect in department quality checks
