    Pros

    CTCA is a great company that provides a high level of service to their patients. It is very rewarding to work for a company and earn a high level of compensation and at the same time "give back" and help people in potentially the worst stage of their life. CTCA gives their stakedholders the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives!

    Cons

    At times the workload can be heavy

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your high performing and truly engaged stakeholders

    Pros

    The business model is solid. The marketing is outstanding. Front line stakeholders are truly dedicated to patient care. Potential for becoming a strong research leader is present

    Cons

    The executive over the clinic and many of the physicians has no clinical license or clinical experience. The executive leadership will tell you one thing to your face and something completely different behind your back. The executive leadership is getting their bonus for hospital performance, while the stakeholder is not receiving a bonus (that was really sold when the job offer was made"8 -10% bonus). Their are two executives who have clinical experience and you can tell because they seem to make the best decisions regarding clinical matters. The passive aggressive nature of some of management makes the work place very uncomfortable at times. Finally if you are in the clique then it is almost impossible to get fired no matter what you do. Their are some front line managers and stakeholders who are practicing care above their scope of practice and are very chaotic in their care for patients. This is completely against the common sense approach of being a person of calm and peace while treating the cancer patient. CTCA has drastically gone away from the approach of patient centered care to money centered care.

    Advice to Management

    Do not try and manage something you have no experience in. Be mature enough to say that managing doctors and clinicians and having no clinical experience is outside of your experience. Stop the cliques and focus on going back to the roots of CTCA and if you really want to make CTCA a competitor on the national stage, support the stakeholders who are investing hard work and time to the process.

    Pros

    Great benefits, overall good company to work for.

    Cons

    Though the company culture was great, the workers at the bottom (i.e. culinary services) were often unappreciated and at times, I felt that my intelligence was insulted.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition goes a long way.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is perfect if you have a manager who allows you to take advantage of telecommuting. The atmosphere is very positive and senior leadership is very approachable and not intimidating. They listen and take action where necessary.

    Cons

    The on-boarding process is good but once on-boarded you are left to sink or swim. You must have the ability to figure things out yourself and be comfortable asking questions. If you can do this you'll survive. If you can't, you'll probably be looking for work elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Stakeholder work/life balance (where possible) to foster happier and more productive Stakeholders. Take swift action to resolve issues raised in the employee engagement survey. Take note of "good managers" and propagate their style.
