    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    The cleveland clinic merger is making AGMC better, offering more resources, including more employee benefits, and the name gives it more prestige. The AGMC community is very friendly and overall its a great place to work.

    Cons

    Paid time off includes holidays and sick time all in one bank. There are no maternity leave benefits. Some of the facilities need updating.
