    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.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lifespan full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Coworkers, decent benefits, big cafeteria.

    Cons

    Bad management with totally unsupportive managers. High turn over. Always understaffed. Overtime used as staffing. Keep adding new work on with no corresponding staffing. Managers blame everyone in department instead of the one or two troublemakers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff!!! Most of them have been doing their jobs longer than you and know what works and what doesn't. Stop "writing up" adults like they're in middle school.

    I worked at Lifespan full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Good stepping stone for those entering the workforce

    Cons

    Work/life balance, low pay for the work, output clinics are considered essential departments, negative management teams, higher ups don't care about employees. Lack of growth especially for those of color.

    Advice to Management

    This is to President..you have real people working for you not dolls! Give those who deserve a chance to move up and create a friendly, caring environment. No one likes working for a dictator.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Lifespan part-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Pay isn’t horrible if you can stand dealing with management/administration

    Cons

    Administration doesn’t support their employees. You’d think such a large company would support long time employees that have given much of their time, sweat and compassion.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving employees more responsibilities every month but the same amount of time to complete it all. Stop breathing down the necks of employees that may need to work overtime to get it all done for YOU. Stop expecting perfection of those that have committed lifetimes to your company. Take care of people that have dedicated 20 years or more to your company instead of trying to fire them before they reach retirement....
