    Pros

    Working at HHS gives me the opportunity to make a difference in many people's lives every single day. Serving our patients, housekeeping staff & other fellow coworkers is the most rewarding part of my job. Each day I leave work feeling fulfilled because I know my work has impacted those around me.

    Cons

    Constant changes/reductions in the healthcare industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding and acknowledging your staff for making a positive impact in other people's lives.

    Pros

    I have been with HHS for 1 year. I have found it to be a very pleasant place to work. The people are very responsive and helpful. Leadership has a focus on improvement and produce a monthly video each month to update all employees in the field. There's a solid path to promotion to higher positions within the company.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, but that is due to company growth, as I see it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue consistent, timely communication.

    Pros

    I've been with HHS going on 7 years. During that time I have steadily advanced in responsibility. More importantly, I've witnessed the advancement of those who report to me as well. While individual achievement is rewarded, it's the success of the teams that have truly led to everyone's personal advancement. There is also a lot of satisfaction in knowing the service you are providing is considered the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The demands of this industry are not for everyone. Individuals that are successful with HHS typically have to have the ability to roll up their sleeves and not be afraid to get their hands dirty while still maintaining the skill sets to represent both the company and the clients in an executive manner.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your core values, the ones that have made HHS successful for over 40 years. Keep pushing your leadership to develop the next wave of leaders. As the company continues to grow, it will be needed.

    Pros

    Hourly Team Members work extremely hard for their managers and really care about their patients.

    Cons

    Managers are constantly expected to pull a rabbit out of their hat with poor staffing levels, the inability to reward team members with pay increases, and upper management that comes from big box retail. Upper management gets 2 weeks OTJ training, they have no idea how to really run an EVS department.

    Advice to Management

    When a manager tells you that they are being harassed by a client, take it seriously and address the situation. Removing the manager from the account, or when they don't want to move, you make their lives a living hell until they quit, is not the answer.

    Pros

    There are some genuinely nice, good people who work there. The best part of working at HHS was making friends with people in my department and in other departments.

    Cons

    The company is completely unorganized and doesn't seem to have a clear vision. The only way to grow a career is if you manage to survive the chaos long enough. Nepotism is strong; half of their leadership is either family or friends of family. They brought on a new CFO to get the company back on course, but his solution seems to be laying people off and slashing budgets, which has created a culture of fear and distrust throughout the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    VALUE YOUR PEOPLE. From the housekeepers up to the corporate office. The people who show up and work hard every day are the only thing keeping this company alive, so start acting like you actually care about them. Bring back the Christmas party and happy hours. Encourage people to have fun and interact. If you're not going to pay them more or offer opportunity for advancement, the least you can do is keep them happy where they are.

    Pros

    It is a fairly small corporate office so you have the ability to not be stuck doing one task all day everyday.

    Cons

    Limited Growth opportunity Not a very innovative company so your ability to learn plateaus quickly Leadership plays favoritism Poor communication when making changes to policies that effect a wide range of employees Little to no consideration for the well being of their employee's welfare Quasi Bully mentality in their management style

    Have you talked to your supervisor about specific complaints? If not, do so; if you have, please go up the chain of command all the way to me, jims@hhs1.com
