    Former Employee - Senior Director  in  San Antonio, TX
    Former Employee - Senior Director in San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, family oriented post-acquisition. Environment promotes constant change and growth. Strong compensation and benefits. Phenomenal city location. Multiple opportunities to get involved, to make a difference and if willing to are encouraged to make improvements. For highly motivated, self-driven individuals this is a gold mine.

    Cons

    Constant leadership changes make the environment seem unstable and lacks clear direction. Difficult to navigate political landscape. Small job market in San Antonio so in leadership ranks, not very many options to transition into. Company values changed immensely post acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and respect the people. The people are devoted to the company and want to make a difference.

    Pros

    Standard Time Off and Benefits. 401k with company match up. $0.75 for every dollar up to 10%. Fully vested after 1 year. Great products and training

    Cons

    Always short handed, will not hire enough employees causing current employees to be over worked. On-Call time can be stressful with multiple calls from facilities in the middle of the night causing employees to go into office to assist.

    If a dictatorship is your preferred management method, then please don't pretend to care about the employee's input. It would save time.
