    Pros

    Location. Nice co-workers and boss.

    Cons

    Very high turn over rate in certain departments One day off for Christmas and one for New Years No stock options other than possibly some of the executives No career plan provided Constantly changing objectives so yearly goals are no longer applicable Cramped work spaces No maternity leave No educational allowance No parking unless you get there at 7AM No milestone payments/bonus incentive plans No on sight cafeteria, and if you leave you will lose your parking Groups of people speaking other languages in the workplace, Spanish and Tagalog

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize your good employees and value them. The "Culture and Values" set forth all over the company in posters are great. It would be nice to see the management adhere to them.

    Pros

    It's an exciting time to be in the Billing Department right now! Organization is committed to process improvements and reducing re-work Team driven process improvement discussions - everyone has a voice New VP of Revenue Cycle has improved the culture into a fantastic place to work Managers/Supervisors are empowered to run their respective departments, resulting in happier employees

    Cons

    Sales has too much input on collection/billing practices

    Advice to Management

    Great choice in new leadership! I see nothing but clear skies and rainbows in the future.

    Pros

    There are pockets of good, hard-working employees, positive changes in some areas of the company, and 100% paid for benefits.

    Cons

    There is an incompetence with the people that have been there "since the beginning". They care more about protecting themselves than making good decisions for the company. You only matter if you're in good with the old timers. Vacation and sick time is laughable and there are not many holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and treat every employee fairly not just those you personally like. Add more vacation, sick, and holidays. Treat the employees like adults.

    I worked at Millennium Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a fun place to work. Supervisors came in and changed the morale.

    Cons

    Used to get pay raises, now bonuses if the company does well. The upper Management changed the family feeling that Mr. Slattery created.

    Advice to Management

    Treat current employee as good as the new ones!!!

    I worked at Millennium Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros....I agreed with their mission statement on a personal level at first. Feeling slightly special because you work in a "business casual" (enforced dress code) environment. You get a lab coat with your name on it (which is easily stripped and not yours to keep). They have different sized gloves? OH boy and the extra exclusive lanyard to allow you into the building.... no pros to this job.

    Cons

    You are a work-horse expected to: get up, dress up, show up, and shut up. If you happen to get sick within your first 90 days....see ya later. Not to mention you're "observed" by management/administration who treats you like a guinea pig when they enforce trying different "more efficient ways" of opening a box. You will start the day by finding parking (depending on if you've found it easily or not) you will continue to run and or sprint to the nearest opening and "lanyard ID" yourself into the building, next you will (try to catch your breath and act calm) to line up behind your coworkers and clock-in. There's around 100 people clocking in on 1-2 computers so it's a guarantee you will sign in a few minutes late despite your presence. Oh yes this is the best part; they will nickel and dime you for those minutes. You will be paid/quarter of a minute depending on your computer clock-in/out activity. THIS JOB = CARPAL TUNNEL, I could warn you about the people to watch out for/compete with; however they have either been fired or will be out on worker's comp. Needless to say my opinion of Millennium Labs is lower than scam artists in Asia trying to steal your money.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and let employees find a personal way of doing things efficiently. The discouraging "getting sick within 90-days" and you're fired policy would literally stress any new worker to get sick. Nobody can control when they get sick. Have more positive comments/compliments, maybe even a reward system, if you did (which you definitely never have) what a specimen accessioner does, you would want some hope or reward system to continue doing the job. Compensation is terrible; nickel and diming employees who are waiting in line to clock in needs to be changed. If you check to see which employee is checking in or out of the facility why can't that be considered the clock-in? Seems like an easy way to rob people of their time, money, and peace of mind.

    I worked at Millennium Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay reasonably well for the unskilled labor that goes on in the Data Entry Department, and many of the people I worked with were a pleasure to be around.

    Cons

    New hires told that there are numerous opportunities for promotion, but the company seems to go out of its way to prevent internal hiring. Management demanded complete flexibility in the employees’ schedules, but were unwilling to accommodate scheduling needs of employees. They hire some good people, but most of them are constantly looking for an escape. Generally poor communication of what was going on in the company to low level employees. Bad morale rampant.

    Advice to Management

    The data entry department is by necessity a large group of poorly paid people doing unskilled manual labor. Such a group is obviously difficult to keep motivated. Certain moves by the management such as capricious schedule changes, false promises of advancement, and a nonsensical insistence that “Millennium is a great place to work” are not things that improve morale.

    I worked at Millennium Health full-time

    Pros

    -The people are always friendly and willing to help if you have a question, although be careful whom you confide in because word tends to travel quickly and can get to wrong people. -Trainers are highly knowledgeable and very patient -Decent pay

    Cons

    -Lack of respect. Management thinks of the employees as children and call us that to our faces but yet they don’t understand why the employees don’t respect them… -Workload. If you work mornings, be prepared to be expected to do double the amount of work than your evening counterparts. Alternative is to work nights. -The supervisors are in a "do as I say" mentality and you should never question their requests. -Lack of communication. Management tends to not tell their employees about changes in processes and expects everyone to find out somehow and put it into practice. One day you'll be expected to do something one way and the next day its not how things are done anymore. Then the following day, it’s back to the original way of doing things. Be sure to get any new instructions in writing as proof just in case they try to say that you didn't understand. -No more fun. This company used to have the best holiday party but that has fallen by the wayside for unknown reasons. Also, they used to celebrate birthdays as well as baby showers, engagements, and even when an employee decides to leave the company. Now celebrations are frowned upon because it takes away time from work. -No performance evaluation. For the past years, the supervisors have not given any feedback on performance. No performance evaluation = no raises. -"If you don't like it, I can easily replace you"

    Advice to Management

    Lower your unrealistic expectations of what you think your employees are capable of. Remember that they are not machines, but people who have limits and feelings too. If they keep getting pushed to the limit, they will eventually break down both mentally and physically. Trust that your employees will get the job done without having to monitor them every second of the day.

    Pay employees more, be conscious of the fact they have families they would like to see to.

    Pros

    Employees are some of the best to work with! Rate is competitive (for now).

    Cons

    New supervisor implemented new policies that seem to change all the time. Backed by management. Likes to threaten employees and at one point told them that they're replaceable. Shifts are constantly changing. Possibility of a Wed-Sun shift after the holidays (which was recently overturned! Hmmm... I wonder why?) There's a lot of communication and trust issues. Morale is WAY LOW. A lot of people are on edge lately, some quit and others have started to look for other jobs. Benefits used to be one of the best. Now it seems like it's being reduced one after the other. No more pay raises! Only a one-time bonus/year. Shift differential starts from 9pm-4am. Advice: Stay away from MH!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! We are people too! Sometimes the OLD way to do things is the BEST way.
