    Great benefits, lousy mangement within the operations

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDynamic environment that challenges folks to think out of the box; great employee benefits

    ConsVery competitive environment that does not support and/or create loyalty across its' employees. Supervisors are not supportive and the culture does not support people that give their opinion especially when it is different from the executive team within the department that you work in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more supportive of your employees and hold managers, directors, especially VPs accountable for not providing the support their employees need and require in order to be productive, Additionally, the good old boy environment is alive and well at the company. The company does not support the professional development and/or succession planning to retain or promote ethnic minorities. Just look at the C-Suite, Field Force and the VP levels, do you see the diversity that is represented across this nation and/or the diverse patient populations that the shareholders provide healthcare to. I would not recommend a diverse candidate to apply for a job at this company because they will give opportunities to folks without degrees before they give a diverse candidate the same opportunity where they require you to meet the requirements day one.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Premier

    Director (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsStimulating work when at member sites. There are many very intelligent people to work with, but on the other hand, there are those not so that are placed in leadership positions, mostly due to long term past relationships.

    ConsLeaders seem to overlook bad behavior, it's all about getting the dollars

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf people are willing to tell you like it is, listen

    Pretty much owned by IBM now, but without the perks of being an IBM employee.

    Marketing (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe location is much nicer than previously.

    ConsPremier has been going downhill ever since Rick Norling left.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. The ship sailed when PINC went public.

    An ok experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood co-workers. Lots to learn. Honorable mission.

    ConsThere are a lot of VP's. Not enough people to get the busy work done, so expect to work many hours, with very little recognition for a job well done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinuing to add responsibilities to peoples roles without adequate compensation will lead to good employees leaving. The perception that Premier values their employees is beginning to fade fast. Churn an burn.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsEmployee well being is very important to management. Not a lot of turnover here.

    ConsMoved headquarters to Charlotte, laid off San Diego staff.

    Decent Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits- offers multiple options for retirement (Roth 401k, standard 401k, etc). Also offers FSA, PPO and HSA options.

    Movement within company- Opportunities are available to move within the company

    Cons-Base pay tends to lag behind competitors in the industry

    -Upper management in some areas of the company (pharmacy for example) are out of touch with the lower levels of their respective departments. Directives are extremely vague and there is no organization to speak of. For example, reports created by lower level staff members are constantly requested by the department VP to be resent months after they were originally sent out. At other times, management will request an analysis be made and when it is finally completed, either forget that the analysis was requested or never use the analysis at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter organization...especially in regard to reports that are sent to you by lower level staff members

    Specific directions- vague directions do not help management or the employee that they are being dictated to,

    Be more engaged- Actually take the time to know what is going on within the department and ask your employees what projects they are currently working on
