This company should be your back-up plan

Finance Lead (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros- Good place to be if interested in pursuing career in healthcare finance and/or healthcare administration.

Cons- Senior management is disorganized. The modus operandi is primarily to keep putting out fires. This means that all resources get reassigned to fixing the latest "issue" while everything else falls apart. You then rush to try and put out the next fire.
- Senior management is primarily unknowledgable about the healthcare industry as they are brought in from other industries. Normally this would be alright, except that in this firm, ego forces some senior managers to treat lower management and analysts with scorn.
- For a healthcare technology company, too many senior staff are not tech savvy and feel threatened by younger hires who are tech savvy.
- Most managers forget their responsibilities towards the lower level staff they are supposed to manage and therefore do not provide adequate career support and constructive feedback.
- For a company this size, there is a serious lack of policies, and terrible HR organization/structure/management. The company is in denial of the fact that they can no longer operate as a start-up.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean up your act. Put in place better HR policies and hire better HR resources. Focus on supporting the analysts who are entrenched in the day-to-day operations and data, so that their careers flourish and they feel good about doing the work they are doing. Put in place clear career paths and teach those at Managerial level how to effectively manage their direct reports.
