I worked at Excela Health as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Great staff who are dedicated to providing excellent healthcare to the communities served by the organization. Management is responsive to the changing healthcare landscape.

Cons

Old cultural norms are hard to shake. Continual (but necessary) changes within the organization are impacting morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to listen to employees at all levels. Recognize that the pace that must be kept to address changes in reimbursements and healthcare delivery is alarming to many employees.

    Senior management is extremely disconnected from its workforce.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time

    Pros

    There is a high camaraderie among coworkers, a real sense of working together. Interpersonal relationships were the best part of my position there.

    Cons

    Practically insignificant raises annually, if at all. The raises are supposed to be based on your performance review, but the review process is extremely poor. Only negatives get highlighted. No raises 2 out of the last 4 years for all staff. Any actual raises are low regardless. You cannot ask for a raise; you get what you get at review time.
    Some senior VP's, especially new ones, micromanage and do not permit ideas from lower staff.
    Also, the term "red tape" is appropriate when trying to make any changes, i.e. updating a policy. Very difficult to accomplish. Others in this line of red tape take it upon themselves to think they know better than the content experts.
    There always seems to be more senior level management, but it's the lower folks who have regularly been getting laid off. There's no way this can't impact patient care and the physical environment of the facilities. Slippery slope....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people be the fantastic resources they are. Streamline the leadership, not the worker bees. Worry about employee satisfaction to the same level of patient satisfaction. If you have a pillar or value you say you hold high, don't contradict yourself through the fruit of your work.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great staff who generally want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Staff are not supported by managers, managers are not supported by directors/V.P.s and senior leadership. Huge communication gap at these levels. Lots of lip service from leadership but no action to support these words. Old style management. They make all decisions and then tell you what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plain and simple.....walk the talk! They need to go out and see what is happening in the ranks and show the staff that they are interested and supportive of what they are doing. Instead, they appear disengaged.
