    The loyal employees that have been there a while tend to get pushed out unless you are in one of the clicks.

    Pros

    Training is fair, the benefits are excellent

    Cons

    Promotions go to the favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with long time employees who are interested in a promotion rather than pushing them out and putting less knowledgeable people with less time invested and experience in lead positions.

    Pros

    Company car, phone, and computer. Easy computer system to learn. They have fairly in depth training, though every territory is different and needs to be learned. They are not overly demanding as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    If for any reason a drive is unsuccessful they browbeat you exhaustively about it to prevent a repeat. Unfortunately, sometimes there is not a good answer or logical reason that a drive tanked. There is a lot of driving involved if your territory is further away. Also, while initial new hire training on "how to" is great, they do not help with training gaps that may arise later on. If your territory is struggling and you cant figure it out yourself, then you are out of luck as they will just replace you rather than help you.

    Pros

    Company takes care of its employees with a fantastic HR team, knowledgeable and caring management, and decent benefits.

    Employees are helpful and friendly individuals that do not take themselves too seriously.

    The mission of the comany is a noble one. They strive to save lives.

    In my department, there was never an issue about taking days off. If you submitted your time in advance it was generally approaved.

    All-in-all, this is a great company that has handled weathering the changes of time and life very well.

    Cons

    Hospital hours are a requirement. If bad weather hits the state be prepared to come in to work even if it happens to be a day off.

    If you work the over night shift and there is a company meeting or training, you are going to miss out on sleep while only the work of day time workers are interrupted. Even after all these years the company has yet to emplement a plan of action to accomidate night workers whether its for meetings and trainings or company cookouts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep an open mind along with your open door policy.
