    Pros

    Management is usually lenient with giving you time off if needed for appointments, etc; a massage therapist comes in every other Friday for $15 for 20 mins; can zone out and float through your job bc they don't try anything new or challenge employees professionally (could be a pro if that's your work style)

    Cons

    Small company (about 50) where people are dropping like flies. 5 people resigned and 4 were let go within the last 2 years. The company has not been doing very well financially, so reorganizing is needed...probably why people are being let go. Very dated practices and project management systems. Everyone could probably do their jobs virtually, but this place is not with it enough to have the proper equipment or procedures in place. Management is hands-off to a fault. There is a distinct Us vs. Them vibe in the air here and communication is nonexistent. No professional growth or development opportunities here. If changes aren't made and new ideas and procedures put in place that catch us up with the times, I don't know that this company has a future.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and ask for ideas. We can't just keep plugging away year after year and expect growth.

    Pros

    Great co-workers in the trenches who take pride in their jobs. Competent and kind employees from mid-management down.

    Cons

    Lower level employees are grossly underpaid and undervalued, and annual increases average only 2%. Miniscule room for advancement. Basic tools to do one's job with ease are not provided, unless you are a favorite of upper management or are outspoken and the proverbial squeaky wheel. The "men" in upper management do not follow through with their promises. Jobs here are being lost to outsourcing. Since the new CEO of Cross Co Healthcare took over a couple years ago the culture and values have declined and many hardworking, dedicated people were deceived and have lost their livelihoods - employees and longstanding vendors, alike.

    Advice to Management

    If downsizing & consolidation is a mandate from corporate, just be upfront with employees and stop being deceitful, secretive, and shady about it. People deserve to know in advance what is happening to their jobs. Families deserve to prepare accordingly. The treatment of those getting laid off is cruel. Have enough decency to treat employees as you would your spouse or adult children. Stop being deceitful about the future of the company. What goes around, comes around. Never forget where you came from.

    Pros

    Time off for holidays is good

    Cons

    The company has no structure, the HR dept is a joke lacking skill and professionalism. Company bonuses are only for managers which is quite hefty while the workers get nothing. No room for growth with this company unless you are going behind closed doors with upper mgmt members.....
