    I worked at Institute for Healthcare Improvement full-time

    Pros

    The company mission is outstanding.
    For the most part the people are great, and when necessary they can accomplish great things together.
    Work / life balance and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed over in the last couple of years and the company seems to have lost a clear direction. In the earlier days of the company, there were clear directions and key initiatives but now they are going in multiple, seemingly uncoordinated directions. Decisions are being made by Sr. Mgmt without consulting the people that are impacted. People may be consulted for show but not really listened to. They listen to outside consultants instead of their own people.

    Advice to Management

    Changes are good, but don't just make changes for change sake. Have a clear idea of what the change is trying to improve and how you'll know the change is an improvement. It's what you teach others, follow it yourself.

    I worked at Institute for Healthcare Improvement (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IHI is an amazing place for a young person to work. The mission of the organization is strong and the opportunities to take on more responsibility is amazing. I loved every minute of my three years with the organization

    Cons

    There is hardly anything bad that I would say about IHI. There isn't that much room for promotion--you are kind of stuck in the job title that you start in. Thats not to say that you can't get a raise or more responsibility, but it is difficult to move up in the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Please get rid of the winter shut down! It's so unfair if you don't celebrate Christmas. It's too expensive to travel then and for young people who only have a few days of earned time, its so brutal to have to use them all at once.

    The Wellness Team helps keep us moving
    The Ministry of Fun keeps us smiling

    Cons

    Making sure everyone has a voice that feels heard has been a challenge
    We can take on too much in an effort to try to be all things to all people
    Our internal processes could be more streamlines and efficient

    Advice to Management

    The strategy is helpful. Keep simplifying remove complexities.
