I worked at Solaris Health System
Pros – Great people to work with. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new things, you just have to be self-motiviated. The managers are very flexible and help with maintaining a good work/life balance.
Cons – Salaries are lower than the rest of the industry. Solaris is a not-for-profit. Annual raises have ceased in the past few years. Despite how much work you do and time you put in, you will not be compensated as good as you would somewhere else. Management would rather let you go than pay your true market value. They will replace you with a consultant or hire someone less experienced.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay your employees their true market value. You are losing your top employees...people who are great at their jobs and have knowledge of many inter-related systems. You will end up paying more in the long run by hiring consultants who have higher hourly rates and have no tacit knowledge of how things work in the organization. Ultimately, patient care suffers and your bottom line will suffer. Don't think that you can appease your unhappy employees with fancy toys. They'd rather have pay increases. They will get tired of the toys, and will use them to find new jobs like a few of us have already.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Solaris Health System
Pros – Not much pressure with respect to producing research publications, as research is not actively supported or paid much attention.
A few outstanding professionals work here.
Cons – Senior management doesn't seem to care about anything beyond their paychecks. Low employee morale, and very hostile environment (see headline) with NO checks and balances.
Advice to Senior Management – Pay attention to (or at least look like you care about) the plights of your employees. Just because problems don't directly affect your day to day life shouldn't mean they don't matter, especially given the chronic nature of some.
