Pros

People are here to provide the best care possible for patients, advance science, and train the next generation of care providers. People are mission-driven. People do care about safety and quality. The hospital has the resources to invest in technologies and people to make this place better. It is expanding and growing. Not too political or old fashioned. Many smart people with great ideas. As this is a teaching hospital, people are willing to teach. The overall culture is collaborative and stimulating. A great place to learn as much as one can and advance as much as one can. Talents are recognized. Also, it's nice to work for a well-known and respected institution.

Cons

Nursing union where there's not enough accountability and ownership. Too much "that's my job" attitude for the amount of money they are paid. That said, the nurses here are good to the patients. Turf wars between specialties, though that is common in other hospitals as well. Some of the people here have been here forever, so they are stuck in their old ways. There's a new crop of managers with MBAs and MPHs so they bring an element of business discipline to this craft. That balances nicely with those who have been here for a while and are politically savvy. The pay isn't competitive but I am told that the benefit package is generous. The hours can be long simply because those whom we serve (physicians) are workhorses. Some meetings are held 6 or 7am in the morning or 6pm in the evening. They meetings are interesting but difficult to juggle for those with little kids.

Advice to Management

Create more career ladder and develop more internal consultants/experts.
