Pros

The benefit package and vacation structure seems to be fair. I have met some great people from all aspects of the healthcare industry.

Cons

Always the expectation to carry out jobs with little to no incentive or recognition upon completion of work. Little to no learning opportunities in terms of courses, workshops etc. Work life balance focuses primarily on work with little emphasis on life. Manpower given to complete work is completely unreasonable yet expected to be completed within given deadlines.

Advice to Management

Recognition, recognition, recognition. Incentive, incentive, incentive. Lead, empower and recognize the staff that are making YOU look good. Just because someone does a good job doesnt mean that extra responsibility and work should be dumped on that person. Utilize the resources given to you more effectively and support staff with the manpower REQUIRED to get the work done.

    Pros

    Good pay compared to private

    Cons

    Too many rules, too many managers and upper level. Not much freedom to grow or take on new challenges because they are not part of your job description.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees and lower level management more freedom with frontline decisions.

    Cons

    No value placed on the ideas or intelligence of staff.
    No engagement of front line staff to directors in change
    Senior leadership seems to be so afraid that they only manage up forgetting about all the people below doing the work
    Constant "reorganization" happening

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to those who work in the organization
