    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great health insurance for employees.

    Cons

    Not enough flexibility in PTO or sick days. Doctors and nurses talk down to you, and don't respect you as a part of the team to help patients.

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, solid benefit package. If it weren't for the people I work with, I would have left HCMC years ago.

    Cons

    Disconnect between departments and leadership, lack of accountability from higher levels, blame game mentality versus owning ones mistake/miscommunication. Higher value on recruiting new talent as opposed to retaining current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable, value the talented employees you have and pay them accordingly, focus on retention, and actually LISTEN to what your employees are saying

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are one of the few places left to have pension and Union benefit and cater to low income or homeless patients.

    Cons

    They are running like a business rather than true health care, only interested in numbers. They have spent the last fives years expanding to keep up with the competition. However the last year they have been Millions in the hole now causing the middle staff and now lower staff to be cut.
    The union has less pull anymore, we are lucky to get a 1% raise each year.

    Advice to Management

    You need to look at your spending rather than keeping up with your competition. You overbuilt trying to increase staff to cover new increased goals of patients. You spend too much money on lean teams and out sourcing buisiness companies to evaluate how to run things efficiently. When all you need to do is meet with staff members whom actually do the work to tell you how to better things. How much money has been waisted on that?

    Pros

    An excellent opportunity to learn all aspects of hospital pharmacy. Have the ability to be trained in most areas by simply expressing interest and willing to work anytime.

    Cons

    A lot of work with very limited staffing. Often times feel overworked and stressed out by the demands of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire more staff and or simply work flows within the pharmacy.

    I have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    - Large company and a teaching Hospital.
    - Opportunity for growth
    - Safety net hospital.

    Cons

    - They love to monopolize your personal time, your days off are littered with "mandatory" education of pointless things that we as nurses already know. They are constantly wanting you to join some organization or a group, they look down on the attitude of just wanting to work your shift and continue with your life, they expect you to be involve and sacrifice your personal time.

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The doctors ability to review, refer to patients to HOTC and sign orders in a timely manner was better when HCMC included HOTC in the Epic software.

    Cons

    When HCMC bought HOTC they assured everyone they would not loose their positions and if so they would have an opportunity to find a position within the organization. No true they took over and laid-off people with over 18 years experience working in Hospice because they couldn't work a full 40 hours a week during Cancer treatment. If HCMC takes over your company don't believe that you will have a job.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to take over a company don't dump the people that are dedicated to HOTC they work during Cancer treatment so their supervisor or other coworkers don't have to due their work. Don't dump one of the most dedicated people HOTC had. Zero respect from a Medical Center towards people fighting Cancer.

    I worked at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    HCMC has a mission to help the community and patients we serve. HCMC has a great history of teaching, trauma services and is doing a wonderful job for the community. As all healthcare at this time the hospital is running like crazy to compete.

    Cons

    There are all kinds of silos. There is no communication and the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. The pace at which healthcare is going is not safe for our patients. The morale of the employees is very low. HCMC needs to think about the employees by having more employee engagement. Changes are implemented supposedly to better our missions/vision but no one ever knows the outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    It is getting very top heavy and your worker bees are getting no acknowledgement. You will eventually tip over.

    Pros

    Most employees are mission focused

    Cons

    Executive Leadership is not connected to staff doing direct care. Departments don't work well together due to competing for resources

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Stop shame based leadership
