  1. This was a great company to work for 15-20 years ago; it became callous and duplicitous in its quest for profit.

    Pros

    Campus is beautiful; work/life balance policies good; company store very convenient. Pay rate good for Admins (as of 2012).

    Cons

    Company claims to follow its "Credo," but fails in practice. Believe company is eliminating Admin positions unless they are sub-contracted.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach in your Credo.

    Pros

    Great brands, global presence, lots of benefits

    Think about the lay people that do all the work. Stop creating work for the sake of work.

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary, good oppoitunity for younger employees

    Cons

    No longer follows the credo, more concerned with stock price than patients and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Culture has changed over the past few years, now longer following the credo.

    Pros

    Pay and hours were good, friendly employees and management. Good benefits, and opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    As an intern it was very frustrating to be under the supervision of people who seemed very underqualified, and with poor technical skills.

    Pros

    Hardworking finance professionals persevere despite lack of upper management's understanding that Excel should not be the primary accounting tool, especially since there is insufficient validation of financial information.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems, tools and processes. Will take 10+ years to accomplish Back to Basics. Budgets are already cut to the bone and more cuts are required despite the IT, PC, quality and supply chain issues already experienced

    Advice to Management

    Don't trust the numbers and information presented in the pretty power point slides!

    Pros

    They paid well. My salary as a Co-Op was far above anything my peers were getting at their internships.

    Cons

    Weren't prepared to give me work in my position. Immediate supervisor was extremely patronizing, condescending, unable to deal with a subordinate in a respectful manner. Lack of a specific function. So I just sat around a lot doing nothing all day.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for who you are promoting into management. Just because someone has good work and can get their job done doesn't mean they deserve a promotion after 3+ years.

    Pros

    Great people, a lot of sites to work for. decent pay depending on experience.

    Cons

    Contractors treated like second class, contractors will rarely ever get hired full-time. Sometime very short assignments, benefits are expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Institute a temp-to-hire or direct placement program so contractors or consultants have a fair shot and hope for getting full-time positions and turning them into a career.

    Pros

    Large, diversified company with great resources and opportunity to move within the company.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and vision. Management either does not have or does not communicate any vision other than their desire to make money and keep shareholders happy.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a direction and communicate it. Consider that there are too many of you and too many cooks in the kitchen. Remember that your success depends on enrolling those who report to in your vision. Get to know your reports; your direct reports and those more distant.
