    Current Employee - Data Warehouse Analyst  in  Memphis, TN
    Current Employee - Data Warehouse Analyst in Memphis, TN

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, and should get a bit better when they start a 401k later in the year (currently, you can contribute to a 403b). Office space is ok, but if you're not on the exec. floor, be prepared for your internet access to be limited. Work/life mix is really good for most positions.
    If you're working at the corporate office in midtown Memphis, you'll be able to park in a garage - you'll be thankful in the middle of a midsouth summer.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit on the low side, not bad, but I could make about 8-10% more at a different company. My supervisor is, while not a "horrible boss", difficult to work with. More of an "annoying boss", really. Also, has a tendency to micro-manage and keep employees under her thumb.
    A little behind the times from a technology standpoint. If you are in a position where you need to be connected, be prepared to carry a Blackberry around in addition to whatever cell phone you may use personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring pay rates up a bit to match industry-wide standards. Allow employees to work from home when possible.

    Pros

    It is the only teaching facility in the area and the up to date medical care is great the doctors are top notch.

    Cons

    Politics and the good old boy and network are in full swing at this facility, it's all about who you know not about the job you do.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Very pleased with vacation and sick leave. A great organization to gain multi-specialty experience. Most of the physicians are very professional and easy to work with.

    Cons

    New hires must negotiate the best salary possible as raises are rarely given, if at all. The pay grades do not equate to compensation. Top executives are a very small clique of people who are out of touch with the physicians and employees and are not respected by the staff mostly due to their lack of maturity or qualifications to serve in top management roles. Several great employees have passed through the organization without their talents ever being recognized or utilized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow current employees the opportunity to contribute their talents and experience to the organization. Respectfully listen to the employees and physicians. Provide an anonymous method for employees and physicians to make constructive suggestions. Need to improve patient satisfaction. The scores are terrible and are largely ignored by upper management.
