    Pros

    There were a lot of pros at this place when I first started there, but then management changed and the whole place fell apart!

    Cons

    They are no open to new ideas, only certain people can do anything there. You have to be a butt kisser to get anywhere there, don't miss this place at all.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for your employees!

    Pros

    You cannot beat the mission you're working for - every day you'll know that you helped people in one of their greatest moments of need PTO is very generous Very respectful of work/life balance given the nature of the work

    Cons

    While I was there, things were done a certain way because "that's how they've always been done." Change was not accepted or welcome, even though the healthcare marketplace was seeing fundamental changes, like Health Care Reform. It's a relatively flat organization, so advancing in your career is hard there. They aren't innovative with new positions for talented staff. Small caveat - there has been major staff transition since I left.

    Advice to Management

    Keep good people by creating new positions for them. Be transparent with information that impacts the way in which the organization functions. Hold everyone to the same consistent standards.

    A mixed bag

    I worked at Hospice of the Western Reserve full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's mission is something to be proud of. The nurses, social workers, volunteers keep it going and have huge heart.

    Cons

    Nepotism and politics abounds here. While working there, about 40% of the work I started was never realized due to poor management decisions. Not very efficient and a waste of hard-earned money that people donate to this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism.

    Pros

    The patients and their families, even when having a bad day its them that get you though all the crazy things of day to day activites.

    Cons

    Supervisors who think they are all that and will lie to make you look bad when all you are doing is the best job that you can do, hoping that they can make themselves look good in the eyes of management

    Advice to Management

    Come up with some type of safe way for employees who feel wronged by overzealous supervisors
