    Pros

    I was working with a facility that provided quality healthcare and leading edge technology.
    I was able to work with some incredible physicians and able to help them learn the market and grow their practice.

    Cons

    No real downsides just took awhile at our local hospital to get equipment and new technology. There was a long process and tight budget due to current economic environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership was fantastic and supportive of our sales positions and what we were trying to accomplish. I love the upper management and had no issues.

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I work with.

    Cons

    Low salary for non clinical staff. If you are not a doctor or nurse there is no way you can afford medical coverage for you & your family. Very pricey health insurance biweekly rate. Annual raise is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Increase salary. Employees will give you a 110% everyday if a company do the same. Stop demanding things from employees that you are not will to give yourself.

    Pros

    The hour were good. and the team I worked with were amazing

    Cons

    Horriable turn over rate
    Poor upper management. They claim you are family but when push comes to shove you are another number to them. Not at all what I expected the the company to be.Unstable!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture they so pride themselves on lacks a personal touch. I have never seen nor heard any positive feedback. They really need some fresh blood and a new perspective in leadership roles. It would do this company well to re think the people in charge.

    Pros

    The physician specialists for children are available in one location. The facilities are excellent.

    Cons

    Nursing knowledge/education and experience is not rewarded with career advancement or participation in hospital change. No career ladder. Poor communication and superficial interaction between upper management and staff nurses. A physician centric culture. Change is very slow and resisted, regardless of current standards of care. Nurses who are task oriented are successful, educated nurses are quick to leave and take their care elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require upper management to attend nurse council meetings to breakdown the barriers to patient care and patient/staff satisfaction. Update all staff to have email equivalent to upper management to facilitate communication. Challenge how incidents and near misses are recorded.

    Pros

    If you can get into the group of acceptable voices you might make a difference

    Cons

    The voices that counter the flow of what is easy and visible out-shout those that try to bring light to what might be meaningful and valuable. Squeeky wheels only get greased if they are in line with current thinkspeak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE EXPERIENCED people-and set your salaries accordingly so that they are attracted to work there.

    Pros

    Fast moving company , always on the move

    Cons

    Staffing issues on the physician practice side are very strict. Employees working for 3-4 years getting none or partial insignificant raises. Conservative company. They have directors and senior management who seem to be very disconnected with the operations in the ground and in clinics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff .

    Pros

    Many of the workers are great people, very committed to improving patient lives and helping make the company a better place.

    Cons

    The company offers limited opportunities for advancement and even more limited opportunities for industry standard compensation. Not competitive as far as compensation.

    Solid Company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    Compensation was above average
    Great Benefits package
    Company is solid, making money
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    They will work you to death and there is no work/life balance.
    Management acts as if they are too good to roll up their sleeves and work. Instead, subordinates are expected to do the work of several people often resulting in long hours and overtime.
    Although they offer a flexible schedule, the workload rarely permits you to take advantage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention and do some investigating as to what is really going on at "corporate" locations that are not located in Nashville, but rather in remote locations.
