    Pros

    The Technology is decent. If you are lucky, your direct report might be a great person. My manager let me do my job and didn't micromanage. There are some good people in the company. My manager was very flexible on working hours.

    Cons

    Worst company I have ever worked for. Internal personal opinions instead of performance based. Unintelligent upper management (director level.) If you cross one of the "good ole boys" you can plan on being let go for any random reason; or simply "other" The good employees in the company are generally treated poorly and looking for ways out. Turnover is heavy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's unbelievable that this company is profitable at all. Let the experts (worker bees) do their jobs and count on them for purchasing opinions, and don't let management make hire/fire decisions based on personal opinions. I have nothing good to say about CMS and recommend only taking this if it is temporary.

    Pros

    Captive audience, where else are they going to go? Lazy folks love it here, no one cares.

    Cons

    Not able to recruit decent help due to lowest pay scale in healthcare industry.Gets employees no one else will hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are top heavy with no clue of what really goes on. No wage increases since 2006.
