Overly aggressive and out of touch management, treats clients poorly.

Pros

- very intelligent people working at the company in general - learned a lot about the revenue cycle in hospitals - location of Chicago office

Cons

- senior management rules by fear - screaming, belittling, etc. - extreme amounts of nepotism - MANY relatives and friends of CEO at the company - model is not scalable. - clients are not always treated with respect, every last dollar is squeezed out of already struggling hospital systems

    Pros

    Excellent employee knowledge, travel opportunities, accelerated industry education

    Cons

    Extremely negative and demeaning executive management; penny pinch on their internal staff (example 1. offered a 35%+ raise to "right size me" when I received an offer from a competing company); boiler room environment

    Advice to Management

    Increase support staff so people do not assume 2 or more roles. There are growing companies directly competing with you, and good employees will leave for more money and less hours.


  2. Low Employee Moral, Little to no advancement opportunities

    Pros

    Its a pay check.. I have to use more than 5 words so, um... its a job (not a career)! And THANK GOD for a job!

    Cons

    If you are used to some recognition for job well done, recognition of you anniversaries or milestones either verbally or monetarily.. this is NOT the place for you. All attention is paid to the MANY managers they have fresh out of college and not to the employees who have been doing the grunt work and have more practical experience. There is no room for advancement as they would prefer to hire fresh young graduates for positions higher than the biller or follow-up representative. Even if they didn' t hire from outside there is no place for a representative to go. There can only be so many leads and so many managers. Short of that.. there arent any other positions here. There is no internal job board to inform you of the few positions that may be available.. you have to hear it from someone else or ask randomly. There is no training for employees that could possibly advance ones career. There isnt a labor relations department, The HR representative are not knowledgeable or helpful and will only respond to inquiries in which they have initiated. They do not participate in any community or philanthropic associations/organizations. There is no incentives for healthy living, poor work life balance. If this is presented to anyone their excuse will be.. its a new company and still in its infancy stages. The company is at least 4 years old now. That excuse doesn't apply anymore. In summary.. if you like working like a machine with quotas that will not allow for you to have a balance, come on over. They need a LOT of people! But don't expect to be happy as that is not on their list of priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Since all of the above issues basically point back to Human Resources.. pick up a book or subscribe to some organizations that give tips on HR and improving employee moral AND IMPLEMENT the findings. I know more about HR and i have not gone to school for it. A company can't last if more than half of the people doing the most work are looking for another job. Good luck and God Speed
