    I worked at Lifespan (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to develop and progress in a healthcare clinical and/or non-clinical career. Environment is comprised of both union and non-union administration striking a balance of internal equity, more often than not, while providing great patient care.

    Cons

    A change in organizational structure can easily cause displacement of good employees.

    Advice to Management

    While restructuring to become a healthcare leader in the region, remember the longevity and contributions of those who assisted in providing a foundation that can handle your proposed new infrastructure. Yes, they were compensated for their work; and, they remain responsible for the contributions to your current success because of the foundation left behind long after you have dismissed them from your view.
