    Pros

    Service to the patients is very good

    Cons

    Within the Health Information Management department, no accountability held on supervision and management when it comes to treating hourly employees ethically nor fairly. Consistent lies from management staff towards their employees and manipulation of policy and procedures despite multiple complaints against management staff. Human resources also share private employee information with lower level management to use against their own hourly employees for disciplinary action or ability to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    none. The shareholders and executive leadership staff needs to clean house because lower level management are doing nothing but increasing turnover of good quality employees and increasing the chances of legal action against the owners of DMC

    Pros

    Easy work and easy to get a job, first time employees are wanted : does pay well do to the fact they can't keep or recruit experienced employees

    Cons

    401k Match : Discretionary Health care : must use DMC facilities 1% raises (equals $0.21-$0.25 a year : Inflation is 3-4% so you get poorer in real world value every year you work there Will make you work with 4-5 therapist if call offs No overtime

    Advice to Management

    Take your time to recongnize skilled individuals : stop hiring your friends and family that are unskilled and incompetent : invest in your employees because all your left with is employees that have no other choice but to stay because they probably were fired from all the other facilities and then you ask why your scores are 1 star because you have no innovative people and no truly skilled employees. I was once your star employee with highest production and best customer reviews but your company made me realize I would never been rewarded so I drifted away and finally quit.

    Pros

    Not much anymore. Some of staff in department are team players, but everyone is so done with all the lies from management. Everyone is burnt out from neglect.

    Cons

    We have no permanent manager for many reasons, but mainly because the last manager was burnt out from all the ridiculous demands put on managers. In order to get one RN hired all RN's got a raise while others, many of whom have more education and professionalism were left severely underpaid. Management continues to give excuses. Higher paid staff is salary and has greater privileges, but are not held to a hire standard. Their error are either ignored, or never known. And if you do bring issues to management you are the one that gets chastised. This is in direct opposition to what the company claims will be done with complaints. So much more I can say, but anyone working in healthcare these days knows exactly where I'm coming from.

    Advice to Management

    Management - stop the games and quit feeding into culture of profits before patient care. If you continue down this road you will land up with employees you deserve(lazy, uncaring, self serving). Think about patients for a change, and stop feeling threatened by intelligent, kind hearted, hard working employees. Quit relying on high turn over rates to keep wages down. We all see whats going on. It's sad and inexcusable.

    Pros

    Big company, still reasonable healthcare benefits but only pay well if you go to a DMC doctor AND a DMC facility.

    Cons

    Poor management, favoritism abounds, good work ethics DO NOT get you ahead. Some departments look as though they haven't been renovated in 20 years.
