    Awesome atmosphere and great people.

    MIS (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsChristian atmosphere with lots of encouragement to get healthy physically and spiritually. Diverse culture with other religions welcome also. Most areas are not interested in political games, but rather good character and integrity. Lots of room to grow your career in just about any professional field.

    ConsThey do not pay the best for their positions and sometimes that impacts quality of new employees coming on board. They do not currently seem to train leadership roles with servant-based leadership ideals and tend to put "managers" or "supervisors" in place instead. Not sure about other departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time training your leaders to be leaders and not managers or supervisors. Servant-based leadership is Biblical and truely the earmark of a successful business. Also, paying a healthier rate for employees and finding more experienced people would allow you to have fewer headcount at the same cost, fewer mistakes due to inexperience, and more long-term employees who are proud to carry the company torch.

    Love the company/Leadership is lacking education

    PFS (Former Employee) Maitland, FL

    ProsBenefits are great!. Annual pay increase and bonuses. Room to grow IF you have a friend in management or a family member.

    ConsLeadership is lacking skills to manage. HR will not tell you why all applications gets denied/no rehire, even with experience and years with the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the high turnover rate in certain departments. Make sure all in leaders are qualified and not just a friend/family or a friends of a friend/family. Just because you are experienced at the job does not mean you are qualified to lead and manage others.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsChristian based Hospital, but great diversity in workers. People care about each other and their families. PDO days instead of vacation/holiday days off.

    ConsHard to move ahead. Can't tell if a position is a promotion, unilateral, or demotion. Plus it''s very hard to get an interview when applying for an internal positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview you HR software. You can have all posted requirements, years of experience, and never even get an interview for a position.
