    Pros

    While most companies come up with clever sounding "Mission, Vision and Values" to mask their true objective (making a select few rich), this is not the case with Park Nicollet. PN sincerely does care about helping patients and the surrounding community. The doctors, nurses, x-ray technicians, etc... I worked with were amazing! Large enough to provide opportunities for advancement, small enough to avoid wall street politics. I highly recommend PN to anyone looking for a career in healthcare with an organization that truly cares about ethics and improving the healthcare system for PATIENTS. Usually, when I leave an employer, I do everything in my power to never darken their door again. Ha! kidding (maybe). But, I couldn't imagine going anywhere else for healthcare for myself or my family. I really do feel that strongly about the quality of their employees and the company as a whole.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. I'm sure there are pockets of drama here and there but I was lucky enough to avoid them.

    Advice to Management

    It'd be awesome if you'd offer real maternity/paternity leave to employees rather than the same ol' standard STD most employers offer. Be a trendsetter! More flexibility re: telecommuting when positions can allow for it. Work/Life balance is going to be the bait that brings in and retains stellar employees.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working there. Was able to work with a lot of people, across all different levels of seniority. Also, got to help out a lot of great patients!

    Cons

    Could get a little hectic at times, during the "busy season" (Winter) If you are a germaphobe...need not a apply...this is a clinic afterall

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Fun place to work, pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Does not offer telecommuting.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
