    Pros

    Company does development using PL/SQL, Spring, JavaScript, JQuery, and Java. Managers are understanding regard project time lines. Co-working are friendly and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    The company does not spend lot money on development tools. Company needs more resources like Business Analysis and Application Testers. Project specification not clearly defined.

    Advice to Management

    Defining project so can build out company code libraries. Better company code libraries will reduce projects time line. Ask question like "Is this application be used on table in the future?" or "What new technology can we use?"

    Pros

    Dress down office environment, friendly staff, decent amount of PTO

    Cons

    Very disorganized office, pay raises are minimal at best (Only every 2 years & you will not receive anymore than 25 cents)
    Benefits, such as Health Insurance, are very expensive & plans offered include a high deductible. Pharmacy co-pays are the most expensive I have ever come across.
    Terrible management, VERY little training & direction provided.
    No advancement opportunities at all.
    Many people after numerous years of employment at AHOM make less than $12/hour.
    (example: Private pay collector after 25 years making 9.25/hr, Insurance collector after 5 years making 10.25/hr...ect)
    Most of the managers have no idea how to do your job & are unable to provide guidance

    Advice to Management

    read the cons section above & get new management...

    Pros

    It's a very easy job.

    Cons

    No chance for growth or advancement. No pay raises or cost of living raises are given. Managers are only concerned with themselves. My manager drinks on the job. Rules change to fit the need of the company without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees pay raises. Give chances for growth. Monitor supervisors and actually take action when things are reported.

    Pros

    PTO every pay check, holiday time, laid back atmosphere, good hours, and some of the co workers will become family.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, you basically manage yourself, raises/reviews increased to 1 every 2 years, bonuses were bare minimum (like $100-200) for a years work.

    Advice to Management

    Get some fresh faces in there that can change things to make the company better where the employees are more happy

    Pros

    Those who excel can learn healthcare management experience to use to further their career in a more effectively ran company.

    Cons

    Patient care is not the number one focus as it should be. It's all about numbers, numbers, numbers. Trust level through all levels of the company is nonexistent. Being at the sleep support center in Nashville is a joke. Constant petty thefts and total lack of continuity make for a dismal outlook for this company. Totally unprofessional coworkers and management that does nothing to prevent or correct. Morale across all departments is low, and is rare to see a person smiling. Unrealistic sales "goals" and being penalized financially for taking vacation days makes it hard to want to stay employed by AHOM. Low performing employees impact the financial success of high performers negatively through an unfair "team based bonus". Employees feel like just a number, and that they are insignificant in the overall scheme of things. Turnover is high, and will ultimately lead to the failure of this company if nothing is corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the low performers, and make an incentive for the good employees to stay. Better health/dental insurance. Hire an HR liaison that is up to date on current times and is more efficient. Proper training across both SSC locations.

    Good hours, love the patients

    Cons

    Discrimination, Favoritism, Petty Theft, Clueless Management, Drama, Gossip, Unfair bonuses. Exceptional employees are not rewarded. The morale at this place is the worst, no room to grow, raises are non existent. Incentive bonuses are a joke!! Incompetent HR, some members of management come in noticeably drunk or high. Don't waste your time at this place!!!

    Get it together!

    Pros

    It's only slightly better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    No organization, terrible OS, zero raises, absolutely no chance for advancement, a monkey on a keyword has a higher IQ than the majority of the sales reps, management that come in noticeably drunk, the new ceo says he cares about the employees but stopped all promotions for the peons, the company has never given a cost of living increase because inflation apparently doesn't exist inside the building, suck ups go far in this company, there are more ways to lose money than make money, the company says they care about the patients but the reality is the only thing upper management cares about is numbers, no holiday parties/bonus/gifts, over all this company is a joke. Medicare should take a serious look at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as if they matter. The employees in every department need serious raises. A huge amount of employee's have to work 2 jobs to survive. If this company gets audited it's going to shut down.

    Pros

    Nice and professional place to work, great pay and benefits, vacation time, I loved working there. The supervisors are great and very helpful. Great bonuses, I had a lot of fun working there, holidays we always had an office parties. The owners are wonderful christian people and are very fair. I miss them

    Cons

    Sitting in a cubby all day long rally took a toll on me, I'm a high energy type of person so it was hard for me to sit there all day. Even though you get 2 breaks, 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon (which helped a lot) still was just too much sitting for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
