Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great staff. Previous CEO built a dynamic corporation

Cons

New CEO is weak. He is into PR but isn't a leader. Lots of promises to everyone but does not follow through. Last CEO not much on PR but built the system into the size it is and was an excellent leader.

Advice to Management

Need to stop worrying about their job and do what is best for the system. Their goal is to keep their high paying job and not doing what is best for employees and the system as a whole.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for this area.

    Cons

    It is small enough that how employees are treated are not always equal. Some supervisors are personal friends with other staff they are supposed to be managing.

    Advice to Management

    If you want patients to "always" be happy with their care and our customer service, staffing needs to be adjusted.

    Pros

    Life/work balance is very seen as very important. Avera does not have a "revolving door" like the other institution in town has. Avera also promotes from within, but does not hesitate to go outside to find the talent necessary to move the organization forward.

    Cons

    Depends on who your direct line boss is...there are a few "holier than thou" attitudes that run rampant in certain depts. The HR dept is a little overzealous in trying to keep compensation down by offering wages that seem to be a bit low in comparison to similar size organizations.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a disconnect between the upper management and the staff. We need to find a way to bridge that gap and make sure that the voices of the "little" people are heard as well.
