    Pros

    When I started it was great. A new group was formed to bring all the MBOs together "under one roof" with a common set of goals and measures. Got the impression that all were on-board with the idea.

    Cons

    Didn't seem to take long for the opposition to start. More energy was spent trying not to achieve the stated goals than it would've taken to just do the minimum requirements. Not all were opposed to the ideas but there were enough to eventually derail the whole thing. Management priorities seemed to shift whenever the wind blew.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. The propaganda didn't match the actions taken. Got the impression they were talking out of both sides of their mouths.

    Pros

    Work team was awesome, the job itself once learned was challenging and fun.

    Cons

    Very little on boarding, and lacking proper tools do perform the job. Management does not stand behind staff!

    Advice to Management

    Remember the mission & vision

    Pros

    Nothing to share here at all

    Cons

    Hiring practices are unethical boarding illegal. The open positions are usually predetermined or promised to certain people. It is usually based on friendships instead of knowledge and experience. I realize this is the case in most companies however, most companies do a better job of hiding it. It is very apparent in the poor quality of work. There is a huge disconnect between upper and middle management. There is no work life balance. It's a sweat shop.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the middle management level and bring in new people from the outside that will change the attitude and the culture. This is a horrible place to be.

    Pros

    Non-profit healthcare ministry - helping patients is wonderful.

    Cons

    Leadership lurches from one self-inflicted crisis to the next. Multiple job reductions followed by premium pay for same positions two months later. No opportunity for growth, unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the company and figure out where you want to be in ten years.

    Pros

    Nothing to say here.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know what they want the corporation to be. Constant change without any focus to make prior changes work. They continue to buy under performing facilities that negatively impact the bottom line. As they continue to grow the work load ever increases without adding the infrastructure of personnel to support the growth. Focus now is cost reduction including massive cuts in pension/retirement plan and PTO. Not a good environment with morale at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you already have instead of buying facilities that are already losing money. Focus on being a better workplace that is not a sweat shop.

    Pros

    I'm really not sure I can say there are any pros.

    Cons

    Very poor upper management. It's all about politics and padding the corporates pockets. It's not about the patients or its employees. I would never recommend this company ever!

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of your employees who do all the real work and stop spending money in all the wrong ways. You all have very poor ideas and should reevaluate some of the management teams.
