    Craziness, but heading in the right direction

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is great for the DME Industry and while their is a lot of dysfunction but there are people in Senior Leadership and Executive roles that have their hearts in the right place to make things better and it is slowly headed in that direction.

    ConsDysfunction, Constant changes in policy and procedures. At times those policies and procedures are not introduced in an orderly fashion that is understood across the board by all employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the constant policy changes and stop doing things to lose all of your top veteran salespeople.

    A Solid Company Striving to Be Better

    Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsI was pleasantly surprised when joining PPS. There are a lot of negative reviews floating out there and I find my experience a bit different.

    Sure the company has it's flaws, as all do. More importantly it seems that now is a major transition time for Pacific Pulmonary. They seem to be pushing in all the right areas to be a truly high quality DME.

    This may be my excessive optimism, but I am happy I chose PPS.

    ConsStill many PCC's in the field doing things the 'old' way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPPS stick to the route you have laid out for yourself.

    Weed out any bad apples and cultivate a compassionate patient first culture.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Invest your time and effort for the long haul and you will reap dividends beyond your wildest dreams!

    Licensing Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Novato, CA

    ProsThis company is rapidly growing and a dedicated person can definitely do a lot of professional growth here. The people in the corporate office work extremely hard to make the field offices function at a very high, compliant level. This company definitely rewards success for those who can make it past the 1 year mark.

    ConsThis company has recently had a few overhauls and the management is centrally located. This means that those offices on the fringes are a little "wild wild west" and those near the corporate office are very compliant and adapt to shifts in structure and policy much more quickly. This leads to difference in reviews, bonuses, etc. and lots of turnover from people who aren't willing to invest themselves in the company enough to get over the initial rough patches.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent. Keeping everything so close to the chest makes it hard for people to grow and aspire to do more. As a company that thrives on 6 key values, demonstrate those values yourself and it will follow in the field offices.
