    I worked at Onward Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    OH is an entrepreneurial environment which is great for those ambitious career starters. If you get along with the right people and you prove strong abilites to upper management, you can get exposure to a lot of work that may not be available in a larger corporate hierarchy. Job secruity is dictated my monthly numbers as most of the workforce comes from the sales division. While OH has a revolving door reputation, it's a very goal-oriented environment and your job is safe as long as you show progress.

    Cons

    They payscale and room for advancement is lacking. While you may take on a more advanced job role at an early stage in your career, you may not be paid appropriately for those responsibilities or recognized in title. There is a lot of repetitive work at all levels, and you can easily feel trapped in the same old, same old. Flexibility is hard to find; if you have to leave early or arrive late that's fine as long as you work 8 hours everyday. It's difficult to take off from work but overtime is usually not required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The biggest piece of advice to senior management would be to adjust the payscale. It is difficult to retain top talent without appropriate compensation, and it is difficult to obtain top talent with low base salaries as well. Also, there must be more conservative investments made that benefit the future rather than impulse business ventures that dissipate quickly.

    Pros

    Good corporate structure.
    Has an entrepreneurial attitude.

    Cons

    Corporate management seems secretive about things.
    Can be a bit of a clique - if you're not one of the "cool kids" your opinions don't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you provide office management with a complete picture of the finances of the company (and their office specifically) - you will empower them to make prudent decisions and ultimately have happier employees.
