    If I ever leave, I've been fired

    District Sales Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Boca Raton, FL

    ProsFlat management, open communication, excellent benefits, great pay, plenty of opportunity for an upward career path, company has integrity and does right by clients, employees and their families as well as the community. Management values employees and their opinions. Constant promotion from within. Employee opinions regularly sought and acted upon.
    Oasis has on countless occasions assited employees or their families in times of crisis and tragedy. This is a small company getting biggish, but not losing it's soul in the process.
    The year of Katrina, Oasis collectively chose to forgo its annual holiday party and donate the budget to victims and recovery. Since that year, that same budget is distributed among nonprofit clients annually. Oasis partners with and sponsors it's client's fundraisers; Humane society, various Chambers of Commerce, charitable organizations and community outreach.

    ConsHaving grown by 75% over the past 8 years, technology has been added on as needed rather than overhauled. Largely visible on employee side, Clients do not see or experience the lags. The overhaul began summer of 2013 with major technology investments. Streamlined processes are evolving and being implemented througout, management and shareholders are completely committed to evolution. Lots of light on this issue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think evertything that needed to change in terms of management has happened within the past year. The few who needed to go are gone and the new CTO and COO are top flight. Certain veteran employees have been moved to different areas in order to facilitate cross training and cohesion. the investments being made in technology and the enhancements to HR and compliance services have been dead on. Senior management is committed to happy employees and happy clients. Keep it up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Oasis is a decent company but there is little support and ZERO training for their sales team.

    Professional Employer Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsSolid company. Good benefits. Decent culture...but very corporate and impersonal. If you know how to sell, they will roll out the red carpet and you can literally do WHATEVER you want.

    ConsThere is zero training for new sales people. There is a 3 or 4 day orientation at the headquarters in West Palm Beach but its and intro to the company, what they do, and the people you'll interact with as a sales person. But, there is ZERO sales training if you're new to PEO. You get a cubicle, some business cards, and you're thrown in the deep end to sink or swim.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFirst and foremost, training for sales people new to PEO. Second, require all independent producers to work directly with District Managers in each city...instead of working directly with the sales reps. The DM's could then farm out the work on a deal-by-deal basis to all their sales people, based upon whatever criteria makes the most sense, rather than just based upon seniority. Currently, the older sales people simply inherit the IP relationships over time and then sit on them and milk them...rather than driver new relationships and new sales channels. There would certainly be complications but in the end, it would work better and prevent the "diva" sales people in PEO from holding the company hostage and threatening to leave and take the IP to with them.

    Started off great, ended badly

    PEC (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat pay and nice coworkers.

    ConsDistrict Managers do not help the PEC's. Focus is driven on number of first meetings each week (you need a minimum of 6) instead of helping/building the consultants up. This is a boiler room type of sales job and if you don't have certain numbers by month 6, they fire you. The company has "favorites." If you're not one of them, you get no help. There is no room for growth/advancement. It takes most sales consultants 6+ months to get a deal, if you even get one. My advice, don't work for this company unless you need a paycheck for 6 months. I left and took a $10,000 pay cut to get out of the nightmare that was Oasis.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would do background checks on your District Managers and listen to the consultants when they come to you or the RVP's with concerns. It's not all about the numbers, we're sales people, we need a fun/exciting atmosphere to build us up, not a grind house.

    Growing company with growing pains

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGrowing company with upper management willing to listen as exhibited by monthly company-wide town hall meetings. Good benefits in PTO, good work / life balance with some flex in scheduling depending on department, occasional work from home allowed.

    ConsSeemed like everyone was new supervisors, new hires, and contractors alike. Orientation was good but job specific training is inconsistent and ad-hoc, new hires are left to themselves to figure things out or help each other which lead to confusion and having to correct and rework. Department I was in was very moody and clique-ish, supervisor was scattered, unpredictable, would lash out under pressure. Slow to change out inefficient software which created a lot of tedious work to be done manually.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work on improving internal processes, develop standard operating procedures with online access. New hires should shadow established employees to learn in context of work flow rather than learning their jobs in fragments. Continue to work on creating "non-hostile" work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Oasis is a solid staffing firm to work for!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits package, sufficient training tools, educated corporate headquarter staff.

    ConsIt's a staffing firm! Client often dictates package options and salary. Salaries tend to be much lower than direct firms. Terrible severance package.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter local HR services to placed employees.

    A Growing Company And it Shows

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsCompensation for the sales group seems competitive.

    ConsSalespeople are instructed to sell small business owners on "large company benefits for small businesses", and the benefits of being combined under a diversified umbrella of 100,000 employees.
    Their dirty little secret is that each Oasis client's Healthcare/Medical premium renewal rate is based on the client's specific company claims for that year. Not on the overall group of 100,000+.

    Two months prior to the Oasis/Aetna/Kaiser renewal announcement, Oasis senior management reviews each client's claim history and decides which clients to keep for the next plan year and which they will terminate. This is based solely on a client's medical claims vs the overall fees collected. If your co. had an employee stricken with an expensive treatment such as cancer, they will increase your firm's premiums by 300%+ to get you off of their policy. This is boarder-line legal, but very effective for their P&L Statements.

    Unfortunately, this applies to Oasis employees as well. If an employee, or covered family member, has a hospitalization claim deemed detrimental to Oasis medical benefit renewals, that employee will be terminated.

    My advice is not to get sick while employed.

    Oasis is owned by a group of outside investors focused on maximizing the value of the company for an eventual public offering. There is nothing wrong with maximizing company profits...as long as clients and employees are being treated properly.

    Sadly, it appears as though this is no longer the case with Oasis Outsourcing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease review the decisions surrounding client benefit renewals, and/or the proper communication to PEC's and clients regarding medical benefit premiums.
