    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a wonderful place to work. Great co-workers and even a yearly bonus but in last 2 yrs everything changed. Bonus is down to nothing and managers are clueless. All they do is tow the line and NEVER have ur back...NEVER!!

    Cons

    All they care about is appearance...flowers out front and Limo's in the back and don't forget their 5 corporate jets and how they moved their headquarters to sunny FLA. All this fluff and no substance cost money so they hire ALL NEW GRAD NURSES and get rid of the experienced nurses who cost more...and you best forget about any overtime...NONE for nurses so you work short staffed and no one has a laugh anymore, or time to eat lunch or pee!!! All fluff, no substance...it's a damn shame cause it used to be a great place to actually BE a NURSE : (

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee....cause it's burning down the house!!! But any advice anyone who had the balls to tell them will be seen as having a "negative attitude" and not "drinking the Kool-aide" and they will be there one day and than gone the next and its all hush-hush. Sad but true so if you need your job my advice is keep your head down cause its "BONUS< HEAD_ROLLING TIME" all year long now.

    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.

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (More than a year)

    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.
