    Pros

    Great benefits, including paid time off, healthcare, and dental, life insurance for full-time employees.

    Cons

    Inconsistent management/leadership and policy implementation between departments. "Combination" with HP leading to uncertainty and low morale in some departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Telecommuting is not a radical idea. It saves resources. A lot of resources.

    Pros

    It's a well known company. The people are very nice and friendly. The vacation benefits are great you get 29 days as a full time employee your first year. Company values are the same everywhere, nothing different. the The work life balance is great as a salaried employee.

    Cons

    The training was very minimal and disorganized at best. Lots of different direction from too many different people. There are different expectations for different people with no accountability. The pay for the job was much lower than standard. I took a huge pay cut to come here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think there should be better training for the position. Also, I believe it's imperative that if a manager manages you, they know the job you are doing. If someone is set to mentor you, then weekly updates are important, not just finding out you aren't doing something correctly via your boss.

    Pros

    Fun place to work, pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Does not offer telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some departments that work from home and then some that don't. The department I work in can easily done from home, but for some reason they don't offer it. If they offered this, this certainly would be a great place to work.

    I worked at Park Nicollet Health Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth, trusted employees, almost unlimited learning in the IT department.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently, no overall direction or 3 year plan, too much playing politics instead of doing the right thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a plan and follow it. The constantly changing to a new direction grinds people into the ground. Take ownership and responsibility for the lack of leadership and direction instead of blaming everything on the folks trying to implement the software flavor of the week.

    I worked at Park Nicollet Health Services (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, ability to work from home, benefits

    Cons

    Disrespectful leadership; no training in complex tasks; managers never around. I walked out after 7 weeks- it felt "wrong" in the interview- should have listened!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop comprehensive training for your new staff. Complex data abstraction is not learned by "sitting" with a co worker. Take the time to check in with new employees and try to understand learning styles; encourage plain of fashioned niceness ( the downright rudeness Inencountered was unbelievable
