Pros

The people that are doing all the day-to-day work for the people in leadership positions.

Cons

Senior Leadership and the attitudes they have towards the people doing the "grunt" work. It's people in these high ranking positions who have little or no people/communciation skills whatsoever. I worked first had for several on numerous projects and on a day-to-day basis and that was one of the first things I noticed in waves! If your going to have a VP in a position of high visibility to the company its better to put people in place that can build morale, energize a staff, and keep everyone focused. The people in place in Supply Chain fail without question in this regard. No vision, too much of an attitude to ever build significant relationships with people in and outside of the company. CFO is super high energy, but can't relate to any of the poeple in his org unless they sit in a big office and have a nice comfy chair!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe instead of running around like chickens with your head cutoff sometimes you should actually listen to people who do the work daily... they might surprise you with the knowledge they possess considering that is why you hired them in the first place! Be honest with the people you have in the building... that is all they really want.

    I worked at CCS Medical

    Pros

    The peer relationships are some of the best I've ever had.

    Cons

    There was a corporate-centric-me-first attitude that left the remote sites (e.g. Englewood, CO) and people in lower positions feeling like step-children. Communication was missing top to bottom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fire people when it was time for layoffs. One day, some people got severance packages and others were just fired.

    I have been working at CCS Medical

    Pros

    Opportunities to advance are (were) available. While those who "knew" people or played the gamed were promoted more quickly, you could still advance on your merits. Flexible with time off and there are opportunities for overtime in most departments.

    Cons

    -Reviews: Annual Reviews have been delayed every year for the past few years and finally retro raises were not given. This saved CCS how much money? While I'm sure this happens in many places of employment, reviews are meaningless. You will be praised all year long but when reviews come out, you're lucky if you are barely above average. HR will kick back reviews that are too good and most in management do not keep detailed records to support an excellent review. Your narrative may make it seem like you're the best thing since sliced bread, but the actual number (and raise) will tell a different story.
    -Corporate move: Give people credit. Allison wouldn't become CEO until the decision to move corporate to Dallas was made. Sure it makes good business sense, but don't make it seem like his preference had nothing to do with the move! Communication regarding corporate move to Dallas is guarded and a bit sneaky. Clearwater and other locations' days are likely numbered. Wouldn't you get tax breaks for also moving Operations and other departments to Dallas?
    -Layoffs: Some recent layoffs were unexpected and there are probably more to come. On the one hand they tell the employees how well CCS is doing, but on the other hand lay off many good employees who had been there awhile and had a lot to offer while letting the slackers stay on continue to be a drain on company morale. People don't work as well when they are in fear of losing their jobs, regardless of performance. This is something corporate HR in Dallas should understand.
    -Employee Recognition: None except for recognition by your immediate management, and only in some departments.
    -Trust: In many cases, senior leadership does not trust or respect the opinion of the management reporting to them. Most of your people were promoted for a reason, or else why are they your management?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people about what is going on with the company. It's not fair to let people fear for their employment constantly. In this economic climate, people need to be aware of their options.
    Stop making stupid process changes that don't work and then not admitting the failure, even though it has an extreme detrimental affect to both the departments affected and company as a whole. Man up!
