In the beginning I had a wonderful experience, but the atmosphere changed with a new CEO on board.

Pros

Great benefits and PTO. Work/life balance depends on who you report to. If a secretary asks to work from home, he/she needs to take an online course for approval.

Cons

As with some senior level decision makers you have the good and bad. There are a handful who are downright impolite to employees and HR is horribly rude.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR needs to attend sensitivity training and learn to treat all employees equally. Company requirement was "Crucial Conversations", however, it never seemed to be implemented. Waste of time.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Work force is pretty stable since they hire conservatively, so layoffs are few.

    Cons

    Senior leadership and middle management is very out of touch with their people. They seems to just focus on doing their tasks for the day, management doesn't "lead" their people, they don't build relationships with them, don't know how to address morale or fix issues that impact motivation.

    There's alot of nepotism here - the chosen few continually get promoted. There's alot of wasted talent here that management doesn't bother to tap into. It's a disappointment. They are also very title oriented, if your title is x rather than y, even though you have more experience and skills than y, y gets the opportunity and recognition, not you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved with your staff, focus on people for a change. Do something about managers who lack management skills. Really talk and get to know the people in your areas, learn about their background and skills, give them opportunity.. That will help induce motivation and employee loyalty.

    Pros

    If you join a good team and you are self-motivated, you will have good chances to learn from informal mentors. Overall there is high job security due to healthcare and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Employees and managers are not aware of how to deal with diversity issues. Diversity is not balanced between departments and that leads to some issue. Future management plans can reduce the work-life balance benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get training on managing diversity.
