    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 have been working at Hennepin County Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    If you want to have a direct impact on patient lives, there is no better place to work.

    Cons

    The organization has a lot of old structure, old habits, old practices, which slow down innovation and make it difficult to get work done if you didn't go to elementary school with everyone.

    Additionally, the reverberations from the layoffs are still being felt.

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

    Pros

    It is a great place. The diversity is amazing. Great learning environment

    Cons

    As a safety net hospital, it strives to stay viable and this sometimes impacts some of the very useful and beneficial services they provide.

    Advice to Management

    Communication on goals of the organization to the staff.

    Pros

    Great manager that fights for your needs, great team atmosphere. Becomes a working family.

    Cons

    Upper level management only cares about their bottom line dollar. No real employee working with patients (the people that matter) is safe. Upper management doesn't relate to floor staff, cleaning dept, kitchen staff etc...

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about patient satisfaction and do something that helps your staff improve outcomes. Care for your employees will increase care for our patients. (increased pt satisfaction)

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

    Pros

    I have worked for HCMC for 16 years and overall enjoy my work there. Staff are fun to work with and I enjoy the patient population they serve. I also like the fact that it is a large teaching facility and enjoy working with the residents. I feel for the most part the nurses are valued at the company.

    Cons

    It is a large organization and communication is an issue sometimes. As with most health care facilities balancing financial constraints with desirable staffing levels can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, Communication, Communication

    Pros

    Excellent care given to patients. Competitive pay. Decent amount of PTO. Great nurse manager.

    Cons

    Like all hospitals, poor back up for breaks.

    Advice to Management

    More float nurses available to break employees. RN's should not be working 12 hour shifts without guaranteed breaks.
