    Pros

    Work from home, good product that works for your customers. You don't often have to interact with management, but if you do, don't expect a shred of help.

    Cons

    They truly are not looking for the best or the brightest. They want worker slaves. Management in name only. sales meetings are a pure joke. Beating your fingernails with a hammer is far more pleasurable. Actually had a manager tell the staff that he does not welcome new ideas. He only wants those that have been tried in other markets so that he won't get blamed if they fail. If you come to either manager with an issue they will respond by telling you their issues and how much bigger they are than yours. Listening is not an option for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some 100 level management classes. It will be a vast improvement.

    Pros

    Great Products for Nursing Industory Professionals including Educators and Educational offerings, publications and job postings for Gannett Healthcare Group.

    Cons

    Very stressful work environment with lack of direction. Many different playing fields and rules for all the same players on the same team. Too many years of same management team producing below standard results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, reward performance, make everyone accountable. Need Sales Managers to manage teams. Marketing should stay focused on manage marketing flow, etc. Too many V.P's or Sr. Managers. Time to start leveling the playing field and award those higher performers. Too many years without pay increases especially for performers.
