    I worked at Premier, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, nice location, and great work environment. The ability to help others outside the company through your day-to-day efforts.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for the amount of work possible. The only solution for achieving success is working nights and weekends. God help you if you highlight the fact you are working more than 80 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust expectations and regain work/life balance. People are leaving because the workload remains the same while the workforce capability has been reduced, i.e. more work than humanly possible.

    I have been working at Premier, Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible working schedule, wellness program.

    Cons

    Work is conducted in Silos, management creates their own goals without input and/or care for employees that are actually doing the work. Lack of development, mentoring and engagement with it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees that are actually doing the work. Engage employees with decision making and let them know they are a valuable resource for the company. Stop hiring managers that do not have the skill set or tools to work with high performing workers.

    I worked at Premier, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary - The company pays very competitively Small - The performance partner group was just starting to become a major business when I left Office - The North Carolina office is great

    Cons

    People - As with any company, there are some great people working at Premier but they seemed few and far between. I did not get along with a lot of the management at Premier. Mission - The goal of a group purchasing organization is to get hospitals to spend more money, sometimes this seemed to conflict with my logic as a performance partner

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a better effort to 'connect' people as the organization continues to grow. My time as a performance partner felt fun but chaotic and unstructured.

    Make management do their jobs. Remove toxic employees.

    Advice to Management

    - Could improve the planning process - Demanding place to work and the pace and innovative nature of the organization can be challenging for some people to keep up with, so need to ensure a balance

    Pros

    Great benefits, products and market niche

    Cons

    Management talks a lot about ethics but I am not sure that they actually live it when they have to choose between the bottom line and living out their "beliefs".

    Advice to Management

    Live out your beliefs

    Pros

    Mission and vision are compelling

    Cons

    Wrong leaders in place for a company traded on NASDAQ. None have the type of technology leadership experience that you'd see with technology companies. Also, there are far too many sales and consulting staff and far too few people who really know how to execute. Culture an values nowhere near where it's been in the past, and it is getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you talk doesn't mean you have the best idea. Too many new leaders (in last 5 years) are focused on money, no mission. Identify them and fix the situation.
