    Senior management is extremely disconnected from its workforce.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time

    Pros

    There is a high camaraderie among coworkers, a real sense of working together. Interpersonal relationships were the best part of my position there.

    Cons

    Practically insignificant raises annually, if at all. The raises are supposed to be based on your performance review, but the review process is extremely poor. Only negatives get highlighted. No raises 2 out of the last 4 years for all staff. Any actual raises are low regardless. You cannot ask for a raise; you get what you get at review time.
    Some senior VP's, especially new ones, micromanage and do not permit ideas from lower staff.
    Also, the term "red tape" is appropriate when trying to make any changes, i.e. updating a policy. Very difficult to accomplish. Others in this line of red tape take it upon themselves to think they know better than the content experts.
    There always seems to be more senior level management, but it's the lower folks who have regularly been getting laid off. There's no way this can't impact patient care and the physical environment of the facilities. Slippery slope....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your people be the fantastic resources they are. Streamline the leadership, not the worker bees. Worry about employee satisfaction to the same level of patient satisfaction. If you have a pillar or value you say you hold high, don't contradict yourself through the fruit of your work.

    I have been working at Excela Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I appreciated the benefits. The hospitalization, dental and vision benefits were very good. They are very generous and covered family and spouse. Paid time off was also very generous.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. Who you know is important when working there. Difficult to make improvements at times. Easy to identify problems, not so easy to correct them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow staff to covey problems. Management look the other way or don't want to acknowledge there are problems in their areas.

    Unfair standards. Not the same for all employees. No appreciation at all for employees. A very clicky place to work.

    I have been working at Excela Health

    Pros

    You work with great people (for the most part), you are compensated well for your work (in my experience) and management fully delegates and empowers the workers. Good benefits.

    Cons

    It is very easy to be pigeon-holed into a position. The corporate group is relatively small at this point and therefore opportunities for advancement are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up the company to corporate internships and allow employees to seek business/corporate degrees and be able to move up through the company.
