    I worked at Advocate Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    worked with excellent physicians and other professional partners and peers. Excellent benefits. Convenient locations. Strong referral network covering a wide array of services.

    Cons

    Leadership placed enormous pressure on physicians and staff to see high volumes of patients while maintaining patient satisfaction which is difficult to do without support and resources. It was all about numbers to them and they lost sight of the reason we were there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be the biggest and the best. You have lost focus on why you are here and everyone at the front line is paying the price. You continue to lose excellent providers and staff due to corporate greed. Focus more on the business rather than growth and you will do well.
