Pros

Pay is great, benefits great. Leading edge new technologies. Nice coworkers. Large, stable company. Strives to meet customer and employee expectations for excellence. Wonderful clinical resources that are just not available at other healthcare systems.

Cons

Management at my particular location are very critical, non supportive, and utilize threats & fear to motivate their staff. Culture of collaboration does not exist between staff and management. Some managers are friendly, while others are cold and hostile. Does not feel like a team environment. Most of the senior management does not respect the staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Motivation through fear and threats lowers morale and performance.Performance review should also include praise for what is done well. Staff feel more engaged when they are given opportunity to share/be included in day to day activities.Positive support and resources helps employees to learn and grow in our roles.

    Size and history can create bureaucratic hurdles

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better coordinate interview / screening process. During 3rd level interviews senior exec manager wasn't 'aware' of one on one interview scheduled by dept and HR.
