    I have been working at The Guthrie Clinic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked previously at another healthcare system closer to home so I was hesitant to commit to a 40 minute commute but Guthrie has been a wonderful place to work. I feel support from co-workers, colleagues and senior leadership. Our department feels like a second family. The expectations are high and the work is challenging (after all, this is healthcare!) but I am part of a great team that works hard, is highly accountable but likes to have fun in the process. People seem to advance or move on to new opportunities at Guthrie, which demonstrates that leadership recognizes talent. We are one of the few health systems in the region not affiliated or owned by a larger entity, which is refreshing. Health benefits are excellent. I love it here!

    Cons

    Certain business practices can be a bit behind the times and it would be nice not to have to use PTO for holidays. Rural location can make it hard to attract talent.

    Pros

    It is truly and honor to come into an organization that is staffed with dedicated people from the immediate community and beyond, all working together to make true community healthcare a reality.

    Cons

    The incessant need to chase revenue many times translates into decisions being based on short sighted gains instead of long lasting efficiency and sustainable growth.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your staffing levels to the appropriate levels. Invest in people and growth will follow. Don't run so lean that you cannot support the growth you do desperately want.

    Pros

    We are all family here, great environment!

    Cons

    "pick and choose your battles" gets really old

    Advice to Management

    Stop shoving problems under the rug and deal with them, no matter how minor "you" may think they are.

    Pros

    Adequate benefits and pay

    Cons

    Small town and low living expenses are excuses they use to keep wages low

    Advice to Management

    Guthrie needs more paid benefit time. It seems like enough but then the reality of taking Holidays off and any sick time we are left with very little actual vacation pay.

    I worked at The Guthrie Clinic full-time

    Pros

    The working environment was nice enough. And the management was decent.

    Cons

    The hourly pay was just too low. They didn't come close to matching the cost living increases from the minimum wage going up 70 cents a year.

    Advice to Management

    You in the orientation that you about you staff. Well from payroll that doesn't appear to be true.

    I have been working at The Guthrie Clinic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wide variety of opportunities available. Employees are able to create their own career path by taking advantage of tuition reimbursement and training and development programs. Many different career avenues to select from - both clinical and non-clinical. Employees at Guthrie really care about the patient and the patient (and family member's) experience. It's a great place to work in our region and THE place to receive care.

    Cons

    Like most places, the team at Guthrie can and should continue to improve the way they communicate across and throughout the organization. Ensure that all key messages are heard and understood.

    Advice to Management

    Involve staff at all levels of the organization when it comes to implementing key initiatives.

    Great support from senior leadership. Opportunities for growth

    I have been working at The Guthrie Clinic full-time

    Pros

    The pay is quite well for the area as well as numerous opportunities for progression through the company. Everyone in my department is very talented, ambitious, and amazing to work with. The company has visions of what they would like to do to continue to provide quality care and remain competitive which provides a strong outlook for the future of the company. Sayre is within an hour of four larger towns (Ithaca, Binghamton, Corning, Elmira) which provides more entertainment and recreational activities. The health coverage is also extremely generous compared to other systems.

    Cons

    Having to use PTO for standard holidays is something that could be improved. Additionally I really wish Guthrie would invest in building out the town and making it a more inviting place for people to live as opposed to trying to use Ithaca & Corning as a place for employees to live which then requires them to drive 45 mins+ and shuttle in to work due to lack of parking.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to attract new talent will continue to be an issue until the area becomes a more desirable place to live. Any collaboration with the local boroughs to improve this is strongly encouraged.
