    Pros

    Management very flexible and helpful. Good pay, excellent PTO and medical benefits. Wonderful coworkers.

    Cons

    Needs more integration of "front line staff" in corporate decision making. Hard to advance from a career perspective: very few opportunities to move out of a clinical role into management/administrative roles.

    Advice to Management

    Getting loyal employees is easy: be flexible.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, decent pay. Can be a bit stressful at times but other days are laid back so it evens out.

    Cons

    On stressful days there can be a lot of overtime, but they compensate so not too bad.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people, good worklife balance

    Cons

    Job security is uncertain, huge variance in compensation at each level

    Advice to Management

    Partners is a healthcare company not an IT company, IS department is there only to support medical providers, so they can deliver high-quality care to patients.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Company with a mission
    Hard work is rewarded; they work to keep good talent
    Moving to a brand new building in the next few years
    A lot of upper management does care about their staff

    Cons

    A lot of locations leads to siloed departments, nobody knows what's going on with the rest of the company, but they're trying to fix that (slowly)
    Some bad managers that the hiring/firing policies make it difficult to get rid of
    No real company culture

    Advice to Management

    Keep the 'unified culture' mentality front of mind as the company moves together
