Pros: great ceo, true focus on values and standards of behavior
Cons: others in sr. management are not as visionary, departments sometimes stretched very thin
Palmetto Health has been a great place to work. My only issue is that after much time, many excellent performance reviews and national awards I seem stagnated and pigeon holed into my role. Great leadership is great leadership.
Many efforts and opportunities to attend sessions and classes to grow as a leader.
My typical day begins at 8:30 A, earlier – more... if I have to meet with physicians. Early meetings take place approximately once per month so as this is not an inconvenience. I usually leave the office between 5 and 5:30. I don't find my hours to be excessive.
I have great co-workers for the most part and appreciate the Human Resources "Business Partner" model. Having a partner assigned to my departments has been really helpful during the rare moments I have to discipline an employee.
The hardest part of my job is making my ever dwindling budget stretch while maintaining high levels of performance across all services. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping people.
I think Palmetto Health is poised to be the best system in the Southeast. – less
