    Company with lots of potential but lacks disciplined leadership and strategic direction

    Current Employee - Finance Executive in Cheverly, MD

    I have been working at Dimensions Healthcare System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recent change at the CEO position is very promising, encouraging and a "light at the end of the tunnel". Employees are friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Lack of executive leadership, strategic plan and accountability as an organization. Lack of urgency, will and discipline (especially by the leadership) to enact change and reverse negative fiscal situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a corporate identity, and roll-out a strategic plan that employees can rally around. Implement a cultural and organizational change program.

    Pros

    Working at Dimensions Healthcare System gave me the opportunity to interact with people of different cultures, including patients, and that gave me a sense of diversity

    There is a need to improve on patient satisfaction and everyone as a part to play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In-service should be done frequently to address shortfalls experienced by nurses to raise the level of care for patients

    I have been working at Dimensions Healthcare System full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership at Laurel Regional Hospital, Potential UMMS affiliation, Bowie Health Campus, dedicated employees with tenure, Cafe at Laurel Regional Hospital

    Cons

    Finance leadership, lack of communication, lack of departmental knowledge, lack of basic finance skills, no organization, 25 day month end close process, no processes or procedures, no vision to improve or change processes, ideas and visions go ignored

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope the CEO and CFO take a step back and look at the reasons why Dimensions has been failing for a long time. The management team lets employees who are an asset to the organization walk out the door, while the "dead weight" remains. Sometimes employees make a mistake, but you should work with and mentor employees, especially employees with an excellent reputation and HR record.

    FYI - I resigned on my own and I wanted to leave an honest opinion for anyone thinking about leaving their job and going to Dimensions. I recommend waiting a year or two and let some changes take place.

    Pros

    Opportunities develop quickly, somewhat endless if you choose

    Cons

    Organization has not given a raise to their employees in over 2 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The key to any relationship is the people. So my suggestion to management is to focus on the people who make your organization great from housekeeping to auxillary departments. Show them how important they truly are on a regularly basis.
