    I have been working at University HealthCare Alliance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful location. Overall great vision.

    Cons

    Clickish, some folks in upper management takes advantage or their titles, lack of knowledge by some management(staff knowing more than management isn't good)

    Advice to Management

    Give more to the staff that is hard at work, while upper management is bringing their personal life into the office. More gossip by management than the hard working staff brings down moral.

    I worked at University HealthCare Alliance full-time

    Pros

    MSO model with centralized billing, HR, facilities management, IT services all under the Stanford umbrella. Great recognition for customer service for patients.

    Cons

    Not integrated with Stanford, lower pay and benefits, many employees felt like step children of Stanford. Education and experience were not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate with Stanford for better loyalty from employees. Provide the same benefit structure or communicate more transparently why there is disparity.

    I have been working at University HealthCare Alliance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    UHA provides the opportunity to be creative and not fettered by red tape and excessive policies. Having worked with Stanford affiliates (Stanford Health Care & Stanford University), the huge pros of UHA are freedom, ability to quickly implement projects or ideas, and quick access to senior management for approval. If you're self-motivated, thrive with independence, and have good ideas, you'll do well here.

    Cons

    Rapidly changing environment sometimes leads to a lack of clear communication to staff or coordination of projects among teams.

    Medical benefits are not as strong as most similar organizations, but are decent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do salary studies and adjust to be more competitive with peer organizations for recruiting and retention.

    Strengthen benefits package.

    Communicate to staff via a town hall or web form to make sure that employees know about key changes and can ask questions to leadership.

    I have been working at University HealthCare Alliance full-time

    Pros

    Being affiliated with Stanford Healthcare means that we have access to a robust network of intelligent and capable individuals. The folks I work with are patient, kind, and focused on making this organization great. I feel extremely supported and believe that this organization puts people first.

    Cons

    Its a relatively new part of Stanford Healthcare and there is a lot of change and quick expansion. That can translate into a lack of resources for the existing practices and supporting departments being stretched too thin.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and focus on the practices you already have. There is a lot of room for fiscal improvement and change management.

    Pros

    Great place to work . If you are a dedicated and hard working you will love it work for UHA.

    Cons

    Salary range is not as compatible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't master mind ,how ever be strict and straight forward with staff. If you provide adequate training and still staff don't get it . Okay to tell staff that this is not a right fit for you .

    Pros

    UHA will reward those who deserve advancement in a short period of time. VPs and Directors are very bright, experienced and accessible. Lots of opportunities to spread your wings if you so desire.

    Cons

    None. If anything, Senior Management may be too forgiving.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize when it is time to cut staff loose. Empowerment is good but sometimes inherent character flaws cannot be repaired.

    I worked at University HealthCare Alliance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easily accessible via mass-transit locale, set in a rich and vibrant urban cultural setting. If you are willing to have something on your nose, you'll even get promoted!

    Cons

    Way too much micro management.

    Advice to Management

    Back off, and just have some faith in us.
