    Pros

    A good place to work, overall. In the midst of huge changes with the Cleveland Clinic ownership leading to some uncertainty about the future.

    Lots of changes with Cleveland Clinic and more questions than answers about the future of some positions and people.

    Value the talent you have in place.

    I worked at Akron General Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good. Benefits are great. 401k managed well.

    Cons

    Completely a bullying environment. Don't be a whistle-blower or they will quickly make sure you leave. Union is useless except for collecting high dues from your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoring. Favorite employees get away with murder. People who report serious problems are punished or shunned by management even if you're an exceptional employee. Policies only apply to some. They don't promote within.

    I worked at Akron General Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hourly pay and medical benefits.

    Cons

    No advancement/NO leadership/no universal enforcement of policy. Policy is selectively enforced. No sense of direction with leadership that has no qualities to lead in the first place. They will promote from the outside and very rarely promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and universally enforce policy to all employees; management and hourly employees. Lead by the adage "do as I do not do as I say..."
