    Pros

    Great mission and vision. Hospital helps people with there cancer and there lives. Promotion of treating people is great.

    Cons

    No leadership direction. Goals are not clearly spelled out. Bonus that was negotiated at hire is gone. Overall the company has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote what you preach. Learn to promote from within. Groom people who are willing to grow. Open doors that can be opened to allow people advancement opportunities.

  2. A company that consistently strives to create a great work experience.

    Pros

    The people CTCA hires are the kindest I've ever encountered in a health care setting. The physicians are accessible and senior leadership is visible, always asking how they can help.

    Cons

    CTCA has an expectation that employees exceed patients expectations. It can easily impact your work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Your accessibility and visibility actually do affect morale. Please continue. Please continue to work hard to retain our stakeholders, at all levels.

    Pros

    Mother Standard of Care is not just for patients, but for employees, too. Direct team members, as well as people from different departments and centers were always ready to help out and ask how you were doing with genuine interest. One of the best companies I've ever worked for.

    Benefits on par with top employers.
    Professional development opportunities.
    Positive/healthy work environment.
    Caring leadership.
    Competitive salary.
    Opportunities for growth/promotions.
    Safe/secure buildings. Clean.

    Cons

    I did not personally experience anything negative during my time as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employees and investing in their professional development. Allow more flexible work hours when appropriate to job function.

    Pros

    As far as patient care, CTCA has an amazing mission and provides patients with a mother standard of care. Stakeholders and doctors ensure patients are completely satisfied with their care and treatment, and most of the time they are! This facility is truly amazing. Stakeholders are friendly, almost like a family. It's rare to see someone walking around without a smile on their face. Stakeholders truly make a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers living with cancer. If our worth was measured by the smiles we provide patients with on a daily, we'd be priceless. There's a very lax work-life balance because stakeholders are like family. Company values and mission are clear and something stakeholders hold at a high standard.

    Cons

    CTCA lacks diversity in management and offers little to no room for professional growth. While management is accessible and readily available there's a misconnection. Stakeholders are often denied the opportunity to move up. Stakeholders with accreditation and in-house experience, myself included, are often overlooked and undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should focus on eliminating the communication gap between stakeholders. Listen to your team members, provide them with opportunities for growth, promote within, and truly value the members of your team.

    Also, CTCA has expanded its services to international patients. This is a great program. However, management lacks diversity. Patients and stakeholders alike have noticed this. Diversity provides a new outlook, different sets of skills, and widens an organization's perspective.

    Pros

    I joined CTCA recently after a decades-long career in another field of work, and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised with how this company operates. I work in the corporate offices, and you'd expect some level of stuffiness and bureaucracy, but what I have experienced, consistently, is compassion, respect and a dedication to the patient and a positive culture of professionalism, from the CEO to the co-workers on my team. The idea is to treat all employees -- called stakeholders here -- like CTCA wants and expects every patient to be treated, and the company walks the walk. If my last employer cared this much about employee morale, and the work-life balance (a real priority here), I would never have left the job. I'm here to stay at CTCA. And I tell all my friends to send in their resumes. It's truly a wonderful place to work, and you can't beat the mission -- fighting cancer and helping cancer patients.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet. Honestly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Great leadership that focuses on the ability of each stakeholder to excel in their position

    Cons

    It is difficult sometimes to remove toxic employees

    Advice to Management

    Look at the stakeholders who are toxic and remove them from the CTCA family

    Pros

    Unique patient population who travel from all around the world in search of hope. Stakeholders treat each other like family.

    Cons

    Various challenges come with a place that is expanding to accommodate patients.

    Advice to Management

    Top leaders are great role models for lower/department managers/directors; unfortunately the Mother standard of care is not usually practiced from department leadership onto stakeholders who work for them.

    Pros

    Upper management really treats every level of job with the same amount of respect: lots. They consider every role to be a significant part of helping their patients and families, from housekeeping and dishwashing to surgery and chemotherapy. Great perspective.

    Cons

    Some jobs or shifts have catty employees. Of course. It's more uncomfortable when it's the supervisor, which happened occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasizing patient-centered care is awesome. But if there were a way to ADD A CONTROL to patient surveys to neutralize disease-induced "feedback," it would result in more accurate surveys and be more fair to employees and more in keeping with your stated commitments to your employees. Add this simple line to every patient survey: "What is your level of physical pain right now? What is your level of emotional concern right now? 1 - 10"
