    I have been working at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time

    Pros

    NorthShore promotes from within. Leading edge hospital system. Exciting IT projects to work on.

    Cons

    Due to the Health care nature, company is very segregated. Can be difficult working with other teams on projects, especially when physicians are involved. Some IT groups are run in very archaic ways - very rigid on work from home, no laptops, tough to get promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Be more trusting of your employees and provide more flexibility to work from home.

    I worked at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work with friendly staff and team-oriented mantra. Patient-centered care with all facets of healthcare team working cohesively as a single unit.

    Cons

    In my opinion, there were very little downsides. I loved the people I worked with and everyone I interacted with was professional. Would work here again if given the chance.

    Advice to Management

    No constructive criticism to be given. As I have stated previously, my experience was exceptional and the healthcare team and upper management were top notch to say the least.

    I have been working at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Core values are exactly the kind one would expect of a healthcare system, and the way in which they are promoted is effective.

    Cons

    Too much responsibility of establishing a new office has fallen on the shoulders of the providers rather than support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Continue soliciting feedback from employees; it makes our opinions feel validated. Seeing the feedback enacted is also helpful for morale.

    I have been working at NorthShore University HealthSystem full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent EMR (Epic), not overly numbers driven, supports education and professional development, provide documentation time, good benefits plan, good culture, pay rate competitive.

    Cons

    Big system so longer waits on capital equipment, making basic changes in the clinic, and lots of bureaucracy. Managers are nice and supportive, but not as forward thinking. Upper management supportive, but not as receptive to staff feedback. More old school thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Be more receptive to staff suggestions and make more informed decisions. Think about the future of health care and what changes can happen now on a micro level in the PT department.

    Pros

    Office locations of the hospitals and practices.

    Cons

    Hands down one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. Management is terrible. Will not fire people who deserve to be because they don't want to pay unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees complain about a specific things time in and time out, listen to them and try to fix situation. Not ignore and hope they go away. This is the reason why I am leaving the company, its because of the lack of leadership and management.
