Pros

CNI is a wonderful company to work for. They are a company dedicated to integrity in their business practices. They have a strong and supportive Executive Management team that provides employees an opportunity and a path move up within the organization. They care about their employees and foster a family environment within the organization. CEO David Nimmo is second to none. He has a real fervor for the company and its employees. I would absolutely recommend this employer to a friend.

Cons

My roundtrip commute is almost 80 miles per day. Other than that fact, there really are no "Cons". I would not continue to make that drive if I did not enjoy the company, management and employees.

    Pros

    I have never worked for a better company!!! Everyone is so friendly! Not one person has ever yelled in any situation. At my last job, the President regularly cussed out employees and often had people crying at their desks. NOT SO here. It is a laid-back place to work and everyone is supportive.

    Vacation and personal days accrual are extremely generous. Compensation is well above what I expected, and I was surprised to learn that my position was almost $10K more than what I was willing to work for.

    The building is incredibly modern and also beautiful, as are the grounds. It is nestled in a wooded area and I often see wildlife pulling in to work! State-of-the-art conference rooms, huge kitchen area, beautiful bathrooms, and break rooms in every area.

    The leadership is amazing. I'm actually honored to work for such a humble leader as our CEO. My immediate boss is also incredibly supportive of employees and is completely approachable as well as humorous.

    I've recommended several positions here to others. I've never had a job where I really WANT to come to work, until now! This has become my second family.

    What more can I say? You should come work here, too!

    Cons

    There are few cons to working here. However, at every place you work, you will probably encounter people who are not a perfect match to your own personality. How you handle these people will be a testament to your own set of standards. A smile and a genuine concern for their position will go far in bridging the gap.

    Not a great long-term opportunity for physicians and dentists.

    Pros

    The hourly rate is good if you are starting out (especially if you are a dentist). Additionally, they had a comprehensive benefit package, as well as reimbursement of Continuing Education.

    Cons

    There is not consistent communication between the agency you work for and the Chickasaw Nation. Your bosses at CNI will not "stand up" for you if members of the agency mistreat you. There's a lot of nepotism. Despite the good pay, it's kind of a "dead end" job for doctoral-level healthcare professionals; the agency you work for does not let you use the full extent of your professional abilities. Additionally, the "contract" places a lot of restrictions on your abilities to interact with members of the agency you work with (e.g. can't hang out with them after work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your employees and institute a "no bullying" policy for the contracted government agency. Hire project managers that understand how to manage healthcare professionals.
