    Pros

    good company. good insurance. solid leadership. there are some nice perks to working there. you meet really interesting people, and can make some great connections.

    Cons

    management is changing They began micromanaging everyone and made it into a very unfun place to work. Not that work should be fun per se, but it definitely shouldn't be somewhere you dread going. It became that for me, and is for a lot of people who currently work there.

    Advice to Management

    go back to the way things used to be

    Pros

    You have the ability to advance your career, as they hire within the corporation first. They will help you further your education if it may benefit them.

    Cons

    VERY corporate. Employees are literally only numbers to them. There are way too many managers. If you work at an off site location, expect to be the last to know about anything. Vacations/time off is given without any thought about coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees in the loop, have an actual meeting once in awhile. Give employees the tools they need to succeed, rather than sitting back waiting for them to fail. Reward loyalty.

    Pros

    The job is pretty flexible with a lot of travelling. The benefits are solid, and colleagues are friendly and positive. Great place to learn and develop professional experience out of college.

    Cons

    Administration and department heads have poor leadership skills, and could care more about the company and its people. There is a lack of confidence in projects that trickles down the ladder to the employees beneath them.

    Advice to Management

    Be present and involved with your teams.

    The insurance isn't that great for a hospital. Also the overtime pay is not the same as other companies. It isn't "black or white". Lot gray area there. It never appears to be time and half like other companies

    Pros

    It is located in a desirable area of the northern suburbs of Chicago. The infrastructure is good, and the physicians are of a high caliber.

    Cons

    It functions as a corporation, putting profits first (even though it is technically a non-profit). Physicians are seen as expendable and interchangeable.
