Pros

Company is very generous with benefits and time off. Employee with 0-3 years of service will get 3 weeks of PTO plus sick time. 401(k) match is yours once it's deposited (no vested schedule).

The company invests in social events and company program to make sure you understand the company model. Implemented a "buddy program" for new hires to get well acquainted with the company.

Cons

Not very much room for growth for most departments. Work load increases at a moments notice when new contracts are acquired.

    Pros

    Mike is a great CEO.
    The work environment is great. Most employees seem genuinely happy to work there and many people make friends with their colleagues.
    The benefits are amazing. The 401K match is phenomenal and the HSA contribution is 100% employer paid. They also give every employee a generous amount of time off.
    Every month the activities committee puts on a company wide event and this tends to boost morale.
    Upper management genuinely cares about the happiness of the employees, but changes are slow to happen. (like in most corporate environments)
    The holidays are a great time at MedAmerica. There are many different opportunities to win gift cards and other gifts. The holiday party is fun.

    Cons

    MedAmerica tends to promote people to management without deciding whether that person would be a good manager. They also restructure fairly often. (due to the growth)
    Instead of paying more for seasoned employees, they hire young, inexperienced, recent college grads who they can pay way less. This causes very high turnover as many of these hires are now finding work elsewhere. (most employees are under 26)
    They are lean on staffing. Most employees feel overworked and will do the work of 2-3 people. But they don't know anything different so they stay. Once they realize they are being overworked for the amount they are getting paid, they leave.
    The client, CEP America, is made up of physicians who do not understand the corporate side. They tend to have unreasonable expectations of the MedAmerica employees. And since the client is always right, management holds their employees to these unreasonable expectations.

    Advice to Management

    MedAmerica needs to hire more people so that their current employees don't feel overworked. They also need to stop hiring only young inexperienced people.
    Perhaps to have more money in the budget for salaries, you could lessen the 401k match to 100% match.
    Stop seeing yourself as a "Best Place to Work" and start making improvements. You'll keep more employees around.
    Spend more time educating CEP America on the corporate side OR hire more people to get all the work done.

    Pros

    Growing company with a promising future and a great CEO.
    Positive office culture and vibe.

    Cons

    Growth and upward mobility are difficult to obtain.
    Starting salaries are too low, and many salaries are below or barely within the industry-wide averages.

    Advice to Management

    Resolve salary disparities on both ends of the spectrum (some upper management paid too much and some entry- and mid-level positions paid too little).
