    Learned a great deal but not a great place to work after honeymoon wears off.

    I worked at Universal Hospital

    Pros

    Good place to learn about medical equipment.
    Employees in the field are a great team to work with. No better group ANYWHERE. True of all district offices.
    District offices very focused on customer service and customer solutions.
    Employee benefits generally good but have continually eroded (401K match, use of company vehicle,. Restrictions on use of company vehicles make it of little personal value as a perk. No extended or overnight personal use).
    If you like driving Prius this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Company doesn't seem to know what structure it should have. Constant restructuring of organization. Lacks consistency.
    If can find way to avoid paying employee commission don't hesitate to do so. Lots of "gotcha" rules to help avoid paying commission.
    Many senior corporate managers won't make a decision for fear of potential repercussions to their careers. Result is management by consensus. Very frustrating.
    Solicit employee input but only take to heart if it's what senior management wants to hear.
    Field vs corporate office culture. Corporate dictates. Employees at corporate office HATE working there and move to other positions as soon as possible. "Green" corporate employees dictate to seasoned field teams. Serious lack of front line corporate office tenure.
    Typically corporate states something can't be done rather than look for way to make it work. Lack vision in crafting customer solutions.
    Virtually all senior management are attorney's. Few have come up through ranks. Law degree get you on fast track to senior management without business experience.
    Company values employees as a whole but not individually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide organizational consistency. Quit bolstering bottom line at employees expense. If soliciting field input take serious, critical, objective view. Improve quality of corporate staff by promoting more field people with experience into corporate roles. Get rid of management by consensus culture paralyzing organization. Quit focusing on political correctness and promote BEST candidates/policies. Listen seriously to field suggestions even if they don't match personal agendas.

    I have been working at Universal Hospital

    Pros

    Good people in most areas.

    Cons

    Narrow focus for such a large portfolio, dis-incentivizing compensation strategies. Continual change to comp plan, usually backwards.
    Too much division between sales and operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the sales force and compensate reliably and positively.
