    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
