    Pros

    The organization itself gives people the benefit of the doubt that they will try to give 100%. They provide all the resources necessary to perform your job to the fullest. The organization invest significant time and effort to motivate people.

    Cons

    No matter where you go, people are going to be insensitive selfish, sadistic, shallow, narcissist. You are either a part of that, oblivious to it, or totally against it and call it when you see it. It only takes one person with good intentions to create a great organization that employs thousands of people. It only takes one person with bad intentions to ruin it. I've worked at a lot of different places and there is no shortage of people who come up short on performance. This place just put the nail in the coffin.

    Advice to Management

    Simple solutions are under your nose and at your fingertips.

    Pros

    Convenient to emergency room and plenty of medical offices in case you get sick of working there. Get ahead by schmoozing with the right people.

    Cons

    Too many people that don't know what they're doing except for showing up, taking up space and wasting time. Inadequately skilled staff.

    Advice to Management

    Manage!

    Pros

    A very talented clinical staff that is caring and empathetic. The clinical staff seems to work well together and is very patient care focused.

    Cons

    A significant number of silos despite being one Jefferson. It seems that understaffed clinical areas is the new norm. Want great patient satisfaction without the investment

    Advice to Management

    Revised mission vision and values are great. It seems that a structural make over is needed. There is a need to break up the old network and get fresh people with fresh ideas.

    Pros

    Very bright co-workers, hard working and dedicated staff, truly care for visitors, patients, and each other. A place of caring and empathy. Everyone working hard together to provide patients with the best care in the most comfortable environment. Good location, easy access to public transportation.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change and adopt new processes. Feels like there was always some fad passing through...new way to analyze work processes and change them. Those fads didn't stick but many employees started to become wary of them and disengage before a project even began.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage low-level employees from all departments (clinical and non-clinical).

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with top notch individuals in the clinical setting. Tremendous amount of learning and experience gained while working there.

    Cons

    Management states that their employees are there biggest asset yet they don't treat them that way.
    Minimal pay increases and constant deductions in benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro management of staff with individuals that are incapable of performing the job in which they manage.
