    Pros

    I was given the opportunity as well as encouraged to continue my education in order to not only improve my stance within the organization, but also for myself and my future endeavors.

    Cons

    Being a corporation of sorts, many of their universal constructs did not seem to apply to my department and took time to altar and make appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embracing the individual will help to generate ideas, quality care, and positivity.

    I have been working at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation

    Pros

    Benefits, building relationships with co-workers and patients. flexible work schedule and you dont take work home with you.

    Cons

    HEAVY lack of communication or just lack of honesty. No room for advancement in your department and impossible to transfer within. Becoming too political, feel like you are leaving the office rather than a health care facility where people are cared for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What happened to a genuine health care establishment? Dont turn your ear on those who express concern about management just because they are in a lower position. Those are the individuals you can learn a lot from and will help your department excel.

    Current Employee - Mid-level Clinician in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good shopping nearby on Michigan Avenue, fun culture and most staff-members and physicians are friendly, decent on campus lunch options,

    Cons

    Very high and sometimes demanding patient volume, low salary compared to surrounding area medical centers considering the population, constant changes to benefits and management, lack of organization and leadership, awful patient billing policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The run-around isn't effective, you need to have more control over your physicians, stop trying to fit square pegs into round holes, quit up-charging bills, hire more people who care about patients not just their academic status.

    Current Employee - RN Faculty Foundation in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in an excellent corporate structure where the health care team prides itself on providing the best care and outcomes possible while simultaneously providing high levels of customer service. Good communication with patients to help navigate the who's, how's, where's and why;s of the health care network.

    Cons

    High high volume of patients with high high volumes of tasks to be completed every day. Staffing turnover results in long searches for replacement staff with remaining staff workers overburdened for months trying to do the work of the open position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good management. Difficult to move up wthin the system into management. I personally am trying to make the decision whether to stay in a front line position I have mastered and am no longer challenged in while waiting for a infrequent positional opening in management or go to another medical center in the city and hire at a management level. Hate to leave but difficult to stay in entry level position forever.
