      Pros

      It was my first job out of college. It was good enough and provided health benefits. It fostered a learning environment. Also a learning environment to get my butt out of the door.

      Cons

      There was so much red tape. Things were not efficiently and effectively done. PhD candidates were only paid quarterly and even the upper management would be 4 weeks late on their stipends. People were sad to be around. They didn't change their career goals but accepted poor pay for the amount of work performed. I felt that the environment was toxic. The professors had so much to worry about (employee fringe benefits, budget cut backs, etc). It was a very stressful situation. Vacation time was extremely poor because you still needed to take vacation time for federal holidays because the hospital does not divide the research division from the hospital division. Employees were overworks. It was not conducive to producing research under a name that couldn't even take care of us.

      Pros

      For healthcare professionals, there is opportunity for professional development and continuing education. The organization is focusing more and more on quality improvement and process improvement, and staff members are encouraged to be involved with these initiatives. Organizational structure, departmental structure, and shared-governance is incredibly strong in the clinical units. Nurses are proud to work there and deliver great care.

      Cons

      Upper management/leadership focuses a lot on the negatives and areas that the organization isn't performing well in. There is minimal recognition for a job well done or for efforts made to improve practice. It can feel punitive, futile and exhausting. Work is done in silos; interdisciplinary teamwork is very weak for an academic medical center. Very serious work environment/culture, without positivity or happiness. Annual raises are the lowest I've ever seen. Many staff members and managers have worked here forever (30+ years) and are resistant to change and new ideas.

      Pros

      Good safety culture but front line staff must do more work for minimal financial compensation year to year. Needs to step up the pay rates to keep in line with the increasing cost of living in this very expensive city.

      Cons

      Lack of accountability from middle management which still continues to have culture of blame on front line staff. Too many layers of middle management and many upper management which may stiffle innovation from long lead times.

      Pros

      Halfway decent starting pay, health benefits are good.

      Cons

      Annual raises below 2% of pay (while members of the management take home $5k bonuses), PTO system for non-union employees is mismanaged by inept supervisors, ZERO advancement opportunities unless you are friends with upper management or are a nurse, treated like garbage by management, nurses, and doctors if you aren't a nurse, doctor, or a member of management, constant double standards relating to rule enforcement... There are so many more.
