    I have been working at Marshfield Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The place is working hard to play catchup after doing nothing for 10 or more years.
    A few years ago we finally got a CEO that seems to care about all the people not just the doctors.
    The patient is the focus
    There are good benefits along with nice clinics and building more and now building hospitals.
    Lots of chance to move around and learn more

    Cons

    The catchup means it seems kind of crazy sometimes. That can be exciting and sometimes they just need to share more information
    There are still some bullies but some have left or been pushed out. Hopefully more will leave

    Advice to Management

    keep pushing forward. There are managers and doctors that need to go. "A few bad apples"
    This town and others are depending on you

    I worked at Marshfield Clinic full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were good for the area although health insurance cost increased while coverage decreased

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low. Company continues to promote incompetent managers and pushes out those who are knowledgeable but may question current practices. Very poor Human Resources department

    Advice to Management

    Keep MDs and PhDs in patient care and let trained administrators actually run the organization

    Pros

    plenty of work to do to the point of being overwhelming

    Cons

    Overworked, underpaid. Assembly line patient care. They base pay/merit on pt surveys, not care given. Benefits are terrible as well; insurance is very costly .. very poor dental, almost non-existent vision.
    Too many chiefs over too few underlings. I haven't had any pay raise in 2 years, my nurses keep getting more and more work piled on them ..
    I would _not_ choose this place. APNPs have NO place at the table whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the patient surveys!
    Give a place at the table to NPs - stop calling us mid-levels when we are doing physician-level work.
    Pay the NP their worth; stop the blood-letting.
    Stop micro-managing small clinics.
    Too many chiefs!

    Pros

    Good physical plants. Your pay and benefits are usually provided without question. Usually located in quiet, trouble-free communities. Collegial relationships at the physician level.

    Cons

    The Bad: You will be told what to do by a bevy of clip-board nurses who love to tell physicians what to do.
    You will have evaluations based on patient satisfaction surveys. The only problem is that they have no idea about the statistical validity of the surveys. That still won't keep them from affecting your pay and harassment though. The surveys also drive the patients nuts.
    If they make any promises regarding equipment, facilities, personnel or working locations, don't believe it unless it Is put in writing. The failures and broken promises are legion. Make sure any promises are in your contract with a good bailout for yourself if they don't follow through. This is very important especially if you need up-to-date technology. Otherwise you will likely be working with 20-30 year old equipment unless you are at a chosen location. Don't believe assurances not in your contract.
    They will likely give you a MA to assist you and you will have no choice in the matter.
    The Ugly: If you decide to come here, keep your mouth shut and work at an average pace for the first 2 years. If you work too hard you will make your colleagues jealous because you will make them look bad. Do not under any circumstances criticize the establishment in your department. Even in quality assurance setting if you point out poor/inappropriate practices it will be held against you. Protecting the status quo is more important than quality in this organization. Remember they can (and will) blackball you for up to 2 years no matter how devoted you are to patients and the organization.
    These are the most disingenuous senior administrators I have ever worked with. The mismanagement was so bad that they lost all 3 otolaryngologists in the Eau Claire area leaving only an excellent NP to run the whole local practice. They expected her to see patients at a faster pace than physicians and with no direct supervision. She fell behind in documentation so they suspended her for a week. When she used the week to get caught up on her dictation because of her devotion to her patients and the clinic, they FIRED her. That is not a typo. They FIRED her. You're not supposed to be working while you are suspended. Sit in the corner facing the wall and think about your inadequacies for a week. You can't make this stuff up. Only this clinic could.
    I have reasonably direct knowledge only of anesthesia, dermatology, otolaryngology, radiology and orthopedics. I can't comment on other departments.
    As a caveat this is my opinion and from information from what I would consider good sources. You will need to verify it for yourself. Your experience may be different. It is important to talk with anyone who has left a similar position in the clinic for the past several years. They may be fearful to give too much information but ask if they would work there again. More than one long time, hard working surgeon has relocated because of their management.

    Advice to Management

    You need to replace yourselves with a group with good management skills.
