    Antiquated ideas of necessity to be on site as a consultant, not taking advantages of technology to drive change at the customer site without the consultant being present. Work life balance

    Pros

    Work life balance is great, and they actually care for their employees. Freedom to choose your own path and career plan.

    Since going public, there has been more of an emphasis on sales and financials. May have started to lose track of the mission: improving the healthcare of communities

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to your mission. Continue to bring in young talent and invest in them. Continue to treat employees well and offer nice health benefits.

    Pros

    Good people work there
    Made huge strides in data analytics over time
    Compensation is good

    Cons

    Unreasonable time demands placed on employees.
    Management is insensitive to work/life balance.
    Since going public, the hospitals are no longer partners, but a revenue stream.
    Focus on changing healthcare is lost and bottom line is all that matters

    Advice to Management

    You cannot manage the business by managing the numbers. Manage the customer and the numbers will be made.

    Pros

    Extremely organized intern program. HR dedicates a lot of time for intern development and growth. Encourage networking and meeting people outside of your department.

    Cons

    Some projects don't take the full 12 weeks for the internship so many interns have down time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you're doing! Great experience and a great real world experience to prepare intern life after graduation.

    I worked at Premier, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good experience for people right out of college, good benefits (work from home, nice 401k match, vacation rolls over year to year, sports leagues, onsite fitness classes and activities), bonuses, good values (ethics and good mission)

    Cons

    Low base salaries, a lot of red tape and top town dictation, very siloed product and team structure, too many required meetings (all staff, dept., weekly team, weekly 1:1, and other miscellaneous), bad culture since IPO

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on meeting times, pay people what they deserve, cut down on middle/upper management so it's not like climbing mt. everest to be promoted
