Great people, amazing depth of industry knowledge, but everyone is stretched too thin.

Pros

Wonderful, intelligent, collaborative, helpful people. Incredible breadth and depth of knowledge of the healthcare industry. Subject matter experts even at the VP level are approachable, very responsive, and willing to help any way they can. Large focus on promoting from within. Flexibility to work 100% from home.

Cons

Overworked, underpaid. Too much time spent in meetings. Very high turnover; the superstar performers generally end up leaving the company after 2-3 years. The company has been operating "lean," and open positions either remain unfilled or get closed altogether due to lack of funding. Huge push on upselling, and quality suffers due to the team being overworked and understaffed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Much more likely to retain and recruit high-performing people with better salaries and face-to-face training opportunities. The training aspect is getting better- but it focuses only on people new to the company. Staff should be trained throughout their careers, particularly at the manager level.

    Pros

    Professional culture. Focused on the right things. Good benefits. People don't seem to be distracted and gossiping...they are actually working 99% of the time. Very little tolerance for negative employees that stand around complaining to others...that is not part of the culture. There isn't much to complain about...so complainers aren't taken seriously.

    Cons

    Raises are tightly managed and capped. Health data management...not great party conversation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward high productivity more flexibly. People the put in "just enough" effort seem to get only slightly lower raises than those that are striving to excel. Senior Management seems isolated...most people never interact with, or even see, those at the top.

    Pros

    Many dedicated and hard working employees with 0 rewards or growth potential

    Cons

    no rewards, no raises, no advancement, no equal treatment, no comptime for many departments, no training, a good job is rewarded with more work,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers and team leads, Many of them did not even take management 101. Implement ongoing managemnet training. Implement a management \ team lead improvement program with continual imput from subordinates. Pay emplyees at of the market rate rather than as little as possible. Just get rid of the review process because it continues to be a joke with the only value to lower salaries or keep them the same. Do not tie employee bonuses or raisies to Management budget. Saving pennies should not be the main focus to a competative business. Upper Management direction may change by the time it gets to lower leverl management.
