    Pros

    Sr. leadership is visionary and the company does well to stay slightly ahead of healthcare trends; constantly evolving so it doesn't get boring; they pay well and offer a well-rounded benefits package; they are progressive and keep up with developing social trends; don't join if you're there to warm a seat and present yourself as an on-going learner, it will help

    Cons

    The on-going shift in business trends, operational changes are a constant & always on 'the radar.' Messaging this adequately and establishing reasonable expectations aren't consistent leadership; at the end of every quarter, financial performance trumps all else, particularly work/life balance; they don't take failure well;

    Advice to Management

    - need to better management performance monitoring
    - more robust R&D; become more proven before launching new products/services
    - broaden employee engagement to influence short term strategy

    Complete inability in the technology division to translate vision into strategy much less execution.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees - even when it is information you do not want to hear.

    Pros

    Premier offers great benefits. 401-K match, bonus, many vacation and sick days.

    Cons

    They are a typical public company. They only care about the bottom line. The executives do not care at all about the employees and force people into retirement or layoff to protect bottom line. They also manipulate public perception to win awards. Promotions are very limited to a select group of employees that will manipulate and lie to their employees and co-workers so they can win those promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding behind awards won and statements of “caring about your employees”, instead remember what it is like to be working at the level of those employees.

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Being a healthcare company they have the best benefits all around and there's flexibility to work from home depending on your manager

    Cons

    The workload can be heavy at times and it takes a while for HR to fill positions that are vacated which means heavy lifting for the team if someone leaves. External hiring can be slow and has to go through several approval steps

    Advice to Management

    Try and expedite hiring and if you are finding someone internal try and move that along quickly so the current team doesn't have to do double work which really effects moral while the backfill position is stuck in the approval process
