Pros

Healthcare is the place to be at the start of 21th century

Cons

Very entrenched cadre of old hands that believes in no change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up to the healthcare change that must take place in next 20 years. Embrace dramatic change and reexamine the power structure.

    Pros

    Stable company, gives big company experience on resume

    Cons

    Cost is number 1, followed by cost. Quality a distant third.
    Technology and physical plant well behind industry standards.
    Employees treated like children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Specifically for the Hayward plant - the recent change in plant leadership can't hurt, but probably won't help. If you can't seem to avoid a 'breakroom coffee stock-out' that lasts two weeks, how can you expect anyone to have confidence in your ability to handle the big issues?
