Pros

Nice coworkers, nice environment, employees are paid fairly and competitively in comparison to the same position within similar positions within the same type of industry.

Cons

Too much emphasis on cross training, at least within the group of temp employees. Talent, resources and skills of employees are diluted by this over emphasis. "Jack of all trades, master at none" sums up the culture of Firstcare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change your strategy and if you must retain the idea of cross training your employees, then do it wisely and sparingly. Your company would benefit more by promoting stability and productivity within your employees by allowing them to stay in one job role. This way the greatest level of productivity and accuracy would be achieved by each employee within their particular role, thus benefiting your company as a whole.

    Pros

    This is a relatively small company, so you get to know alot of the people you work around. The pay is pretty good considering the kind of work you do. The medical benefits are very good. Everyone in the building is very nice and there is ALOT of teamwork on projects. Usually about once a month, there is some kind of get-together for employees in the building with food and beverages provided.

    Cons

    Communication is a little rough. Sometimes it's hard to understand what another department is asking of you. The work gets to be very repetitive, and you sit for long hours at a time. HR is very friendly, but sometimes they are rather slow at getting back with you about questions and they take a little while to process paperwork sometimes without a few reminders from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like they fact that there are all employee meetings on occasion to update everyone about the progress of the company. Try and get employees more excited about their work, small department meetings don't carry much enthusiasm at all. Communicate to other departments better so the same work doesn't come back as a result of mis-communication
