    Pros

    Very accommodating to schedule, benefits are even better, and everyone is very helpful. The environment is perfect for anyone who can work here whether its in the kitchen, on the floor, or in the office

    Cons

    i do not have much to say about negativity. If anything parking is horrible. If you work during the day you have to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    None really. just continue to praise and correct workers so that they may know how to improve their performance.

    Pros

    A highly developed technical staff which cross multiple platforms, making each day at work challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    We seem to have a low retention rate. I do not know many members that have been employees longer than 3 years due to the constant in-sourcing and outsourcing of jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be an anonymous patient for a day at the hospital. Witness the methodologies that have been put in place, how employees practice them, and what recommendations could be given to senior management.

    Pros

    Good people subjected to vapid upper management. Prima donna spoiled executives, one in particular needs to go bye bye.

    Cons

    Lack of direction.. HR policies too strict to keep or convert contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. Find some vision.

    Pros

    Working towards a common goal while meeting some awesome people.

    Cons

    MGMT's ability to remove the only leadership that WAS working and the ability to hire managers that are more concerned with egos and titles than doing the actual work. Putting people in power positions that are so far removed from patient care and honestly, have no business being in healthcare. They would rather work for Google or FB. They will destroy the organization from the inside out. It's has already begun

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Quit thinking of yourself and get a bigger perspective. Reward the talent you have. Quit hiring new people that just convolute the issue. Fix the issue.

    Pros

    Great location, but too expensive. Great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Overrun by managers who are overpaid but not exactly qualified. Patient-oriented on the surface, but profit-oriented at the core as a matter of fact.

    Advice to Management

    Think about why you are having difficulty recruiting full-time physicians (not trainees) and why many are leaving. It's not rocket science.
