I have been working at Partners HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very stable, well-managed company with excellent work/life balance including telecommuting options. Working in corporate IS is really "enterprise-level" work that impacts millions of people across Eastern Mass. Even with the Epic migration it's still more stable than most companies. Good technology, there are legacy systems to be supported but there's always new/upgraded systems as well.

Cons

The downside of being such a stable company is that you pretty much work in the same area, year after year, with the same 2% raise every year; your hard work is appreciated among your immediate colleagues but you're not going to revolutionize healthcare and get rich as an individual contributor in IS. Under the previous CEO/CIO IS was a strategic growth area, while they aren't necessarily cutting back right now they're not growing either.

Advice to Management

Give people an opportunity to work on different projects throughout the organization based on their interests. Understandably clinical systems change slowly and deliberately, but make it easier, at least for engineering types, to replace their machines, laptops, get a second monitor. Replace ServiceCenter with something more functional for all of IS.

    Pros

    awesome benefits, best health insurance and they pay for most of it

    Cons

    terrible hr experience, allocate essentially a second cost of living increase as additional compensation for a promotion and dont do very well in terms of corrections

    Advice to Management

    compensate your already existing employees better on promotions if you want to keep them
