    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.
