Pros – The mission, truly improving the healthcare process for children which brings together a great group of dedicated individuals.
Cons – A most unfortunate corporate takeover that gutted the organization and placed the politics of a few industry leaders well beyond the greater good of the pediatric community
Advice to Senior Management – Revamping and updating mission and services are essential in the fast changing landscape of healthcare; but call a spade of the cleanup motivations of a few and explore if really the best for the community at large.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – excellent cause, very good benefits, pockets of really good, competent staff, very flexible work environment, good for work-life balance, parking on site and public transportation accessible, staff care about one another, employees often solicited for opinions, lots of opportunity for employee interaction through social events, good promotion opportunities for lower level employees, newly completed office renovation - nearly all employees have offices with doors, including most administrative staff, tend to have the latest in Microsoft technology, good emphasis on environmentally friendly policies, especially for meetings, members are personable, generally a pleasant work environment, leadership is pretty truthful in sharing organizational realities - almost to a fault!
Cons – there is a executive leadership void, discord at senior leadership level, incongruous application of personnel policies, difficulty connecting the dots between different parts of the organization, long-term employees tend to inhibit fast-tracked initiatives and create obstacles to new ideas, large-scale initiatives don't get translated into individual or department-level strategies - organizational strategy doesn't really exist, not plugged in to DC area association industry, IT has a heavy hand in organizational decision-making, no promotion opportunities from midlevel to senior level, poor dental benefits, issues with conflict avoidance - executive leadership team isn't dealing with the real problems - they tend to pick the low-hanging fruit, but never get to the root of problems, not on board with telecommuting, board leadership is not engaged
Advice to Senior Management – Consider negative impact of tenured staff, address conflict, keep up with the great benefits and plug in to DC association community
Pros – I had a chance to serve the poorest among the poor.
Cons – The hospital is a government hospital and lack latest technology gadget that would help fast diagnosis on the patients.
Advice to Senior Management – The government to put more government hospital for the lower class citizens and yet sustain a high quality medical services
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Senior leaders believe in providing the environment for leaders in which to lead, one that is self-directed and collaborative. If younare looking for a chain of command, micro-management, this isn't it. The mission is the best, the members are great and staff are experts in their fields and very hard workers. Pay scales are regularly reviewed with maintaining staff over the 50th percentile in pay and the benefits have been recognized as tops in the association field. Staff with high emotional intelligence is valued with the ability to lead their own initiatives.
Cons – It is such a great place to work that staff tend to stay so it is hard to be promoted to senior leadership positions. Some staff have become disenchanted with the lack of ability to be promoted for tenure but that's not what promotions are about. If you want to stay you need to be satisfied with the work, the potential for increasing responsibilities and pay but not the title. If the title s important, then dont work here or move on.
Advice to Senior Management – Apply organization wide strategies to common needs but otherwise keep doing what you're doing.
