Pros

Great benefits! The people are very nice and the atmosphere is completely void of all of those downtown snobs you run into in the cities.

Cons

The only con - but a big one - is that there's no advancement for me here. I recently approached my manager asking for some insight into my career advancement within the company. I was told that my position - in it's current department - typically doesn't advance to the next level. Ok, I then asked if I could be considered for another department in the company. The answer I got back was a bit cryptic, but I believe I was being told that I'm too vital where I'm currently at.

In short, it's a classic dead-end job. For me anyways. Your mileage may vary.

Advice to Management

I do believe Senior Management is doing an excellent job at CentraCare. In these tough economic times, the company still manages to give regular raises and bonuses. My real issue comes from Middle Management. See "Cons" section for more info.

    Pros

    The pay is very nice especially compared to the surrounding area. Also, they have very nice benefits for even part time employees. Decently flexible with the schedule.

    Cons

    Since its so large everything is very structured and aren't as open to new ways even though they constantly want you to help improve and save them money. It is a Christian based company so they try to have you include that into your way of working.

    Advice to Management

    Get creative and give new things a try. Better pay raise for exceptional employees. Also employees who help save the company should be given pay raises.

  2. Big Business - Get ready to get lost in the shuffle
