    I have been working at Lifespan full-time

    Pros

    Good healthcare, good benefits, fair wages, employee discounts

    Cons

    Management- they are not fair to employees, they are above Lifespan policy going as far as hiring external candidates as opossed to hiring internal candidates with years of seniority, they hire external candidates for supervisor positions instead of promoting from within. Lifespan claims to have a zero tolerance for sexual harassment but when management is committing that offense, they are given multiple chances and warnings and it is the employees who have to leave the positions to avoid issues. HR is not there to help you, they are there to do what management tells them to. Managers are never supervised or held accountable. They are in their own world and make up their own rules. No one holds them accountable and you can't complaint about management to anyone because there is no one at Lifespan advocating for you, the employee. Lifespan policy is a joke.Unless you are a union employee, you are on your own.

    I worked at Lifespan full-time

    Pros

    Good end users. 
    Great team goals.
    Some teams are working to their most efficient for the company.

    Cons

    Some teams are isolated at this time. Unwillingness to change at the lower operational levels.  
    Pressure to perform with less resources are increasing and does not look to change.
    Uncertainty of future revenues clouding the future of the org.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take a hard look at the isolation of the various organizations. Integration between various teams needed to improve the organization. I would have concerns that management's need to be all things to all users will limit effectiveness.
