    I have been working at Group Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits. Have a great idea in "affordable excellence".

    Cons

    Unions, Management, Administration. Live in constant fear of being laid off. Finally left. No bad feelings, just disappointed. Admin just doesn't know how to achieve affordable excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Please let your staff in on your new ideas before you expect them to execute. We are not potatoes, we know when there are problems...probably more than you do. Also, stop giving out busy work...like millions of new pharmacy initiatives. Update your technology...and then maybe we will meet your "benchmarks".

    I have been working at Group Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated frontline staff who put focus where it should be... on patients. Strong clinical quality values which guide practice of medicine. Forefront in evidence based medicine. Great colleagues who just want to do what's right for the company and its patient population.

    Cons

    The company was brought to a financial morass but there seems to be no accountability at the executive management level. Cost saving strategies too drawn out (layoffs planned over the next 3 years) without any real sense of a grand strategic design behind the cuts. Positions seem to be cut without regard to the people the organization is losing. There's a real danger of a "brain drain" as some of the most thoughtful, dedicated employees are either let go or quit. Result: little or no staff morale, zero productivity, depressing place to work. A real shame because working at Group Health used to be something to be proud of.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the Board of Directors - replace executive management.
