Pros

Like a lot of healthcare IT, it's generally a relaxed atmosphere. The general physical work conditions are pretty good.

Cons

Munson Healthcare is the only large IT shop in the area, and the largest single employer in the area. There's a perception that it gives management power of the employees. I've heard managers talking about blacklisting employee candidates for future positions when they turn down Munson because they can get better pay elsewhere. The joke here, often repeated by management, is "A view of the bay is worth half the pay." Even though the cost of living is as high or higher than other areas where pay is somewhat higher. And nobody can afford any housing with a hint of a view of the bay. Another issue is that management only values management. I've had a director level manager admit that technical people are not respected in the corporate culture. And the most technically advanced people are pushed out of technical work and into management if they want to advance. The IT shop actually created another level of junior managers from their technical staff at a time when management should be getting out of the way of people doing actual work.

Advice to Management

Start valuing the people who do actual work instead of grooming managers.
