    I have been working at Marshfield Clinic part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package and can get them at part time.
    Depending on your manager and team, it can be a nice place to work.

    Cons

    If you are acquired in a merger (ie like I was from a hospital and they transitioned all of us to clinic employees) and then later you are downsized, you don't get to keep all your years of service to be counted for severance. When we transitioned, we were promised that our years of service would be counted and we wouldn't lose anything, but we just found out that the entire transcription staff is being outsourced, and for those of us who came with an acquisition, our severance only goes back to the date of our transition to MC.

    Very little communication about direct impact to our departments. There's lots of communication about big-picture stuff like acquiring other hospitals and about physicians getting grants for various things, but when it comes down to the things like knowing our department was going to be taken over by an outsourcing company, many had no idea. Since the management of the hospital that I came from was great about communication like that, I had an idea it was coming, especially when they transitioned an entire speciality over to MModal to take over the backlog that was created from poor management decisions (ie hiring freeze on transcription, not even allowed to replace those who had left the company, and apparently starting to train transcriptionists on another job position but then reversing that decision after spending a fair amount of time taking transcriptionists away from the real work).

    The entire atmosphere of the workplace changed after being acquired by Marshfield, at least after they rearranged the administration that had fought so hard to keep our hospital the amazing place to work and be cared for (top 100 hospital in the NATION 2 years in a row!). After our CEO and VP were pulled into other positions in the Marshfield system, Marshfield's policies encroached more and more, and now it's no longer the happy family that cared about patients and employees. Now it's polices, policies, bureaucracy, bureaucracy, red tape, red tape, red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Share real information with the peons, even if it's not set in stone. We can understand it when you say, "This might be happening, but it could change in the future." Pretty sure we can figure out that it's just a heads up that change is coming in one form of the other. Don't blindside the majority of your staff.

    Don't promise "you don't have to worry about your jobs" and then less than a month later make a mandatory meeting announcing everyone is being outsourced.

    If you're going to outsource everyone, make sure there's some sort of tuition reimbursement option because obviously transcription is a dying profession.

    Don't promise things you don't intend to deliver. Make it clear in your acquisitions that even if you've worked at that organization for decades, it means nothing to Marshfield Clinic.

    Put a little more effort into making employees happy too. Don't just focus on physician satisfaction. We're the little guys, but we make everything run smoothly. Good luck getting the amount of knowledge with MModal that you're losing now.

    Pros

    Managers are as flexible as they can be. Health benefits are competitive. 401k contributions are competitive. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    They have become very corporate. It's often unclear on what to report and to whom. Streamlining departments and cutting staff is making for stress and overwork for the current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. Have confidence that you have trained your staff well. Check in once in a while with appreciation.

    I have been working at Marshfield Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits if you were hired before they were taken away.

    Cons

    Due to massive reorganization and the cancellation of the main project most of the talent is fleeing the company or already gone

    Retirement benefits for recent hires and future employees was slashed from 11% to 3% (thousands of dollars).

    There doesn't appear to be meaningful projects coming for the forseeable future

    Favoritism. Meaningful work is hoarded by senior employees or handed to select individuals making it extremely difficult to feel a sense of ownership or pride.

    Leadership is not transparent

    Your future isn't decided with you in the room

    Low morale

    No vision

    Leadership makes jokes about everyone quitting

    Anti young professional..MCIS leader makes mean comments about how millennials may have children and are therefore not as valuable to the company because having a life would cost too much

    Marshfield

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Share opinions.

    It's easy to lead in good times, but how you lead when things are bad says a lot more

    IT made a lot of positive changes, yet is treated like garbage, just because the organization couldn't scope a project properly doesn't mean that the employees did anything wrong
