    Pros

    Great environment, facilities and coworkers. Management is understanding and supportive of growth. Lots of reimbursement for education and options for career advancement.

    Cons

    I've seen better benefit packages in terms of cost to the employees. It is a large hospital system and it spans a large geographical area. It is often the only game in town because they own a lot of hospitals.

    Advice to Management

    Provide lower cost benefits to employees. We are a large health company and have many employees that should give us great bargaining power. Offer incentives for employees to earn discounts based on healthy behaviors.

    My advice to Management would be to think about what the team shouldn’t be spending time on. An ineffective manager frequently says yes to anything that sounds a good idea.
