    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

    Good benefits and a great cafeteria!

    Cons

    Management is a problem. Too much nepotism and cronyism! If you are not a family or friend you will get no ware. The Pros are definitely out weighed by the CONS!!

    Advice to Management

    Replace your self with a competent body!

    I have been working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time

    Pros

    You can really feel like you are making a difference for people with cancer, and their families. I never got so many "thank yous" from the people I helped. The healthcare workers in the hospitals are wonderful.

    Cons

    Make no mistake- this is a sales position and you must hit your quota or they will fire you. (and it doesn't take long). There is competition within the department for ownership of the sale (patient) just like any other sales position. A few bad months will leave you wondering what it is really all about.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach.
