    I worked at Marshfield Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work although not as innovative as marketing and press releases claim.

    Cons

    Scientists allowed to bully staff and even management especially if they bring in high levels of funding. If you plan to be there more than a year or two be prepared to stroke egos and look the other way when others are targeted. Also don't criticize or question the scientists or administration.

    Advice to Management

    Even with new administration it's the same good ole boys club. Advice? They won't take anyone's advice

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

    Pros

    More than half of the staff are friendly.

    Cons

    Its a factory. Things must go quickly - the more patients they can squeeze into a day the more money they collect. Its a race that works if you can do the work of 1.5 people for maximum profit.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to complaints about specific employees; especially when the complaints are about the same specific employees and multiple reports indicate a PROBLEM.

    Pros

    Good benefits, standard hours (in the department I was in, anyway.) Job security since they hire too few people for the amount of work.

    Cons

    The department I worked in at the Clinic was the most dysfunctional organization I have ever seen. Management had absolutely no clue what was going on; they gave you more and more responsibilities and then couldn't understand why everything wasn't done on time with a nice pretty ribbon on it. They would ignore the 99.9% of the good work you did and rake you over the coals for the .1% you got wrong. Way, way too much work for the number of staff, which was compounded by giving different work to one extremely difficult employee who felt they shouldn't have to do the job they were hired for. Ironic that working for a health care provider probably took years off of my life. Plus the Clinic is constantly complaining about budget woes but every week they announce they're building another new facility or buying an existing one.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of worrying so much about expanding all over the state, put some focus on the existing facilities and workforce and try to make them better. While physicians are obviously important to a health care provider, there are many non-physician employees supporting them and who deserve a piece of the pie too.

    Managers that I have encountered try and work well with the staff and their requests. The physicians that I have worked with halved treated the staff with respect.

    Up to date changes that are in the works.
