    Pros

    Independent job. Perform an important service to patients.

    Cons

    Management does not manage their branches. A GM runs everything from a far, with no input from employees. No performance reviews. Must be very self motivated due to no feedback from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct performance reviews annually to learn about your employees' strengths and areas of opportunity.

    Pros

    Decent salary; many good people in field locations

    Cons

    Benefits are skimpy

    The company did not plan for reimbursement cuts and is now trying to figure out how to operate profitably. The company brought in a number of new senior managers to save the business but they had no industry experience and made a great many mistakes which did a a lot of damage to the company.

    High turnover, lack of teamwork, distrust of senior management.

    Pros

    The pros are that the tech are good people but upper management was just trying to treat employees and patients bad. they only care if medicare gets on to them and they are in trouble with the feds.

    Cons

    Company is in trouble so they don't know what to do but lie and screw you. no chance of advancement and training was bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management do something instead of lie and mistreat employees

    Pros

    Great Senior Management, decent pay, paid holidays, bonuses, Good benefits, friendly co-workers. Training was always there to answer questions if you had one.

    Cons

    Need a better training program, understanding Medicare is a process that needs to be longer than a webex session. Revenue and R3 are not always on the same page with what is acceptable and what is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the employee recognition that was started recently throughout the company. It means a lot to employees when it comes from people higher than their direct manager. A weekly newsletter to everyone explaining how centers or team members are being successful would work. Some people have best practices that should be shared to all.

    Pros

    Some flexibility with hours. You earn a paycheck.

    Cons

    Extremely high turn over, constant changes in structure and processes. Very bad moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give things time to work. Seems there is heavy focus on projects then they quickly become irrelevant. Salesforce - lots of time and money spent here and nobody uses it now. Stop the cuts. It effects service which ultimately effects dollars.
