    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.

    Pros

    Family like atmosphere. Good health insurance. Fair wages based on regional data. Ability for advancement.

    Cons

    No paid time off , still differentiates vacation, sick, holiday etc.

    No pension, most local hospital have a pension and not a 401k.

    Lack of inter-departmental cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of what makes CTCA great to work for. Becoming more corporate could negatively impact management and trickle down. Make sure there is enough revenue to justify the expenses from the constant expansion.

    Pros

    Nice building, good food on most days. They don't have many patients so if you lean towards being a lazy worker you will probably love it here.

    Cons

    Management changed and thing s got weird. Shallow relationships and questionable ethics.

    Advice to Management

    You have been given advice multiple times but don't listen. Bring in experienced health care people and lose the hotel people and 'yes ' men.
