    I have been working at Sanford Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sanford is a large healthcare employer in the Midwest, but it really feels like I am part of a big family. My team is spread across multiple states, but it doesn't feel like there are hundreds of miles between us. Management does a nice job of communicating and making sure we are all aligned and connected. I really enjoy being a part of a company that does so much within the local communities and, with its initiatives, makes a national impact.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but always lots of changes. I feel like the changes are progressive and needed and I am excited to be a part of them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Right after starting with Sanford, I was impressed with my coworkers and leader. Rounding has been very important and I feel we have great communication within our team. It has also been a change working for an organization that is so invested in the community and that is trying to continually improve.

    Google "Sanford Health" and click on the news tab. Not a month has gone by when we haven't heard of the great things that Sanford is doing and value we are adding to the communities that we serve. Whether it be a Nobel Peace Prize type of award to encourage further advancements in research, a new Imagenetics building, a new pediatric hospice house - one of only 4 in the country, a brand new state-of-the-art hospital, new Veterans club, groundbreaking stem cell trial successes, earning Magnet status yet again, the growth of our world clinics to bring healthcare to under represented areas, the support towards local education and colleges... it feels great to be a part of something bigger and know that no matter what role you serve within the company, you are helping others.

    Cons

    Sanford is continually changing, however companies have to in order to stay on top. New technology can be hard to adjust to initially, but I have been impressed that the company invests so much into itself and the employees here.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire great employees.
