    Pros

    Relatively calm place to work.

    Cons

    Physicians rule the roost. Decisions aren't based on business analysis but on more of a touchy-feely basis. Senior leadership has come up through the healthcare ranks but they don't have a strong business minded leader at the helm. It's a lot of prima donna people in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    You can't be all things to all people. Take a stand and run it as a business.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Unless you're on a huge project, your workload is fairly reasonable.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't that great. One would think that a hospital would have terrific health benefits. Not really.

    Pros

    Used to have an excellent reputation. In regards to management: high senior management turnover. Immediate managers: results may vary.

    Cons

    Managers feel free to make openly racist comments. Politics are also race-based. I was actually asked about race repeatedly by different managers. Management and their favorite stay follows race lines, followed by staff-sycophants. Do not expect that going above and beyond and/or being good as well as hard-working means anything. To be fired apparently is difficult: I guess they need proof that you intentionally killed a patient. However, they will chase you off if they think you might question practices (like parking patients in the hallway before surgery and leaving them there)!!
    Benefits are TERRIBLE: expensive but cover little. If you need a medical leave, you are not paid for 30 days before they will even consider giving you partial payment. High deductibles.
     The doctors that complain loudly are treated with kid gloves. One even said staff could be replaced with homeless people. Another would say he was going to "tell his dad" (a highly placed surgeon); did I somehow end up back in school? Quality is not rewarded even for surgeons, only the complainers get extra rooms, etc.
      I do not recommend this as a place of employment or to allow your friends and families to be patients.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer eye on managers: make sure they do not break the law or allow patients to be placed in danger. Also, just because "we've always done it that way", does not make it good practice. Don't reward surgeons based on length of tenure or volume of complaints.
