Pros

encourage professional advancement
effective leadership
respect from management
clean facility
high-risk patients and difficult diagnoses accepted, a plus for those who want a challenge

Cons

Compared to area hospitals and especially compared to the entire eastern seaboard, this hospital's compensation ranks very very low. Not as low as Hopkins (the lowest).. but they are riding on the same idea that its employees should be satisfied enough to enjoy the prestige of working at a top-ranked hospital. *sigh* For us medical elitists, it's often true.. so it works.

    Pros

    4% company-contributed automatic pension, three weeks paid time off in the first year and seven paid holidays.

    Cons

    Lateral communication is difficult, in part because of politics. IT is reorganizing its processes so there are some growing pains involved there. Disparity between consultant pay and full time pay decreases morale.

    Advice to Management

    Invent novel ways to add value to the work of your permanent employees. For example, allow telecommuting (in some form). Reduce or eliminate communication barriers (physical or otherwise) between teams who support overlapping applications. Pay permanent employees more (for example by reducing the number of consultants).
