    I worked at Lifespan full-time

    Pros

    Good pay benefits some of the doctors are good. Some of the time the job was good

    Cons

    Benefits were terrible. Hired people based on degree not on experience. Good doctors constantly leaving. Management was inept didn’t know how to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    some management, you are throwing your programs away because you don’t know what you’re doing and to their bosses, they need to pack it in.

    I have been working at Lifespan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location; decent benefits (with limitations).

    Cons

    Entrenched middle management that only pays lip service to employee concerns; managers have no training and poor skills; micromanage employees; you are just a drone with little or no opportunity for training or advancement. A paranoid work environment with no trust of employees. Managers and directors will quickly throw employees “under the bus.” There is no middle management turnover but a huge employee turnover. The company can’t fill analyst jobs fast enough due to turnover which further impacts employee workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in middle management ranks (directors and managers). The corporate culture won’t change when they same remain in place.
