    Pros

    A very tight knit team, You get a lot of internal support from other employees. Bonus is generous IF you hit it. They're now making the internal investments to improve customer and employee experience and you can tell they're passionate about that.

    Cons

    A lot of new leadership, to their roles. You have to wait and painfully suffer while they figure it out. They want to communication, and how to improve things but it seems like sometimes the feedback gets jumbled within the shuffle of getting it to where it needs to go

    Advice to Management

    When providing your sales teams with goals you probably need to talk through each person's territory to figure out if those goals are feasible and also think about the current climate that the company is in.

    ABC is a company performing well financially, has a good work culture, and reinvests into its business.

    Pros

    I like the growth taking place at ABC and the opportunities growth can potentially provide in my career. I also enjoy that ABC is willing to invest in the business where it enables my team and me to perform at a high level.

    Cons

    IT management is hiring a lot of senior level management and other open positions with preexisting contacts they have from outside the organization. They are not giving internal candidates opportunities to advance often knowing who they will hire to fill a position even before the position is posted. A whole management structure has been put in place from external candidates to the point it is strongly impacting morale.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look at how to reward top performing employees with career development tracks and job promotion capability. It appears non existent and has top talent starting to look for opportunities outside of the organization now that the job market has improved.

    Pros

    Entry-level and junior associates are given plenty of training, resources, and nurturing to ensure your success. You are never left alone - a mentor, a boss, a buddy is always there to help you get what you need to succeed. The only way to fail is to literally not try at all! Compensation is market level, the 401k is good, and the benefits package is great. Any doctor or dentist will tell you that your plan is excellent! Work-life balance is a high-priority, but there are times you must grind out the 50/60/70 hour week. This is very team-dependent, but for every long and hard week there is the occasional long team lunch, early Friday, and and standard 40 hours. Senior management varies depending on person and department, but most people are very passionate about both ABC and developing their teams. There is a common saying that "harsh bosses do not last long at ABC" because of the culture of respect. You will be hard pressed to find better culture and values at any company. Respect and fairness is found at all levels. Truly, we do shape healthcare for our customers, and help get patients the medication they need at a price they can afford. In short - WORK HERE. ABC is an excellent company.

    Cons

    Compensation could always be a bit higher, 401k matching could be a little higher. There is no real cafeteria, but instead there are vendors that bring food... While most people love the Chikafila vendor, it would be nice to have a real cafeteria with some hot foods available for breakfast and lunch. Not every team has a great work-life balance, especially short-staffed IT teams. It would not hurt to identify overworked teams and hire another employee to share the load. In short - our problems are minor, and will likely be addressed due to very receptive management... again, WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been very engaged in finding out what associates think and feel. More importantly management has been very receptive in implementing the suggestions or solving complaints. Keep up the engagement and solutions... we notice and appreciate them!

    Pros

    Supporting the associates allowed me to be a part of support patients. Insuring that patients always came first.

    Cons

    Major reorganization of IT. New folks came in an pushed out a lot of good people with their friends at management levels. Then they outsourced all the people that made everything work.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the support back in house to save the customer relationships with the business units.

    Pros

    During summer, associate can elect to follow a different schedule. Work 9 hours for 4 days and have a half day on the 5th day of work week.

    Cons

    Management is afraid of conflict. As a result, if someone doesn't perform well, they don't get reprimanded. If someone perform well, they'll just give the person more work even if you are already doing your fair share. It's almost as if management is encoraging employees to be slacker.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting inefficiency especially when working in a time sensitive side of the business.

    Pros

    Opportunities for development, great benefits and overall diversity

    Cons

    Absent diversity in management positions (HUGE issue) in Accounting HR is extremely slow in interview process

    Advice to Management

    The lack of diversity in managerial positions is unbelievable in some areas, such as accounting should be on everyone's radar; Talented, qualified candidate at USB was rejected for a management position because management did not think she could do the job based on her ethnicity. This is horrible!!!
