    Pros

    The people are friendly and innovation is a priority. It is a great place to work and they have good benefits. They value patient care and safety which is wonderful traits for a company.

    Cons

    It is at time politics driven place to work but what place isn't. Also a rather high turnover rate, making sure you meet your goals is important along with staying within your budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Also be able to meet your financial numbers. Its a for profit company and it matter a great deal

    I worked at Vanguard Health Systems

    Pros

    Vanguard has a good company working dynamic. Employees at all levels are eager to help facilitate quick resolution to issues.

    Cons

    Many of the positions at Vanguard were filled by contractors and they did not seem to be in a hurry to bring those contractors into the company in a permanent role. Rather they would cycle contractors in and out as needed.
