    Pros

    CHSi has great opportunity or growth, for hard working employees

    Cons

    Job security is not always there because it can be reliant on the contract that your assigned to work for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work with talented employees not get threatened by them. Instead of micro managing try, um managing.

    Pros

    Work/life balance and pay is good compared to other places.

    Cons

    Three years ago it was a decent place to work. It was teamwork and we all helped each other. Good people have been let go and all new staff hired in last 3 years under one manager. New staff is comprised of all people who only look out for themselves and will step on your neck to advance or stay in good graces of manager. Attitude reflects leadership. Bullying is how it is now managed. Favoritism is rampant. Patient care is not important and patient abuse goes on even after reported. Company no longer will pay for CEU's and told if you want to keep your license you'll pay for your classes. No way to advance. The few perks we had has dwindled to VERY little. HR is very ineffective and do nothing to support staff/workers. They are in bed with managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire quality people with integrity, compassion, intelligence and quit terminating the ones who have it. STOP THE BULLYING!

    Pros

    CHS has some very well- known customer names. The pay is reasonably competitive. I had one manager at one location who really good to work for.

    Cons

    A fair amount of internal back-stabbing. Too many hands in the hiring process. Managers don't keep each other informed. After having received excellent reviews as a health care professional for several national companies, I had one manager walk me to the door on my fourth day without cause or explanation. That manager apparently never thoroughly read my resume. She was surprised to know of my additional qualifications.The Senior Account Executive for that customer talked non-stop for fifty-five minutes of an hour interview, then asked "Any questions ?".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't have to have everyone holding hands all day, but if you continue to foster this type of punitive management style, you'll lose many talented people

    Culture of Fear

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Comprehensive Health Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very few. The best I can say is "it's a paycheck"

    Cons

    Employment at CHS is governed by a culture of fear. Fear that on any given day, YOU will be the one escorted out of the building. No consistency in the rules. No adherence to the company's own corporate policies. An HR director with an attitude of superiority and little to no concern about federal employment laws. HR completely unconcerned about what is "right" or "fair", catering strictly to satisfying the hubris of a select few managers. Upper level management not being clear or concise with expectations, more of a "just get it done" directive with no empowerment or authority to actually "get it done". This creates a recipe for failure--every time. Employees left to "guess" the expected process/result.

    If you express an opinion that contradicts or opposes HR or executive management, you may as well consider yourself marked for termination and start looking elsewhere for a job. Even when mid-level managers (at this company, that would be Director's and below) make poor staffing decisions, the highest levels lack the fortitude to correct the action. I've seen it several times and it's sad that management/owners completely distance themselves when adverse actions are taken against hard working individuals.

    I'm disappointed in CHSi and the direction they have taken--people no longer matter, despite the lip service paid to "the well being of the employees".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the roots and recognize and reward (monetary or accolades) the people that contributed to your success. Recognize that it is the admin, CSS, CSA, and first level management that has made the company great...and CHSi has lost a whole lot of wonderful talent from the incompetence of some that have been peter principled (promoted beyond their level of competence). Realize that processes can be learned, but good people skills are more important and those that don't have them should never be put in charge.

    Pros

    Leading company for onsite occupational and medical services for some very big name companies. Good salaries and decent benefit packages.

    Cons

    Unfamiliar and disorganized processes. Not enough support from management. Not enough staff to complete their underestimated workload. Salary with lots of time worked over, no overtime pay given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff clinics appropriately based on need. There were processes in place and staffing in place before clinic are outsourced, yet that is overlook and underestimated during the transition and it wears the staff down.
