    I have been working at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Getting to know patients and their families can be super inspiring

    Cons

    Depending on your particular location and department you may or may not have a supportive work environment. Also not sure whether pay is on part with market-value. Follows US Oncology pay structure so not much flexibility in negotiating compensation.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of talented people who are way over-qualified for the jobs they've taken within RMCC. Find ways for them to advance within RMCC so they'll stay and make the company better rather than leave for other companies.

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary was decent enough

    Cons

    Too much favoritism; the ones that work get nothing but bad mouthed and the drama llamas get all the raises and praise

    Advice to Management

    Clean out all current management and get REAL leaders in there!

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The physicians are supportive and office staff is always there for you. Great atmosphere when management isn't in the office. Everyone in the office on a daily basis works great together and are very helpful to one another. If management was to change and be involved this could be an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Practice administrator needs to be replaced with someone who cares about the office and employees. No room for advancement. You will be promoted you just won't ever get a raise for that "promotion" and in your annual review it wont be more than 3%. Leadership is severely lacking and those in a leadership role are lazy and unwilling to help and support.

    Advice to Management

    Do everyone a favor and take a different position where you don't manage anyone or work in a patient care area. Management isn't about detachment and never being involved its about support and guidance.

    I worked at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved taking care of the patients. The doctors were also very pleasant and easy to work for. Really enjoyed some of the office personnel.

    Cons

    Backstabbing, obnoxious supervisors that treat their employees like dirt. They will belittle you in front of patients. Very unprofessional. The supervisors can have valid complaints against them from patients and employees, but they don't even get a slap on the hand from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention when complaints are made. They are usually valid. Remove supervisors and management that create tense, unpleasant work environments. The patients deserve better.

    Pros

    The goal is to treat Cancer patients, and that alone is rewarding. Many of your co-workers are easy to deal with, and there used to be a strong sense of camaraderie.

    Cons

    In 2009, RMCC started the Love Heals Campaign. By November, 2010, they were losing money so badly ( Economy, losing an entire clinic full of Doctors, impending sale of the parent company US Oncology to McKesson) that they started reorganizing and downsizing. Yet the person responsible for the marketing campaign, which apparently completely failed in it's objective to bring in business over the previous year and a half. was not one of the ones let go. 9 people in the Central Busines office alone were told that their "positions had been eliminated." Not a single member of upper management was downsized. Not a single member of middle management was downsized, with the exception of the IT Department Head. Who had no effect on the gathering of funds. The same policies and initiatives were kept in place. The same people who'd brought them to that point through the previous year and a half. The same people who had lost one of the biggest profit makers of the company, the Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic, to Lutheran only a few month's prior. In a field normally immune to recession, they had to downsize. Over a multi-year period while I was there, the amount given in raises steadily decreased, the company eliminated, entirely, a quarterly bonus program, and repeatedly hired poorly chosen individuals to middle management, while at the same time, driving some outstanding people away from the company through either overwork or just the inability to see what they had.

    Advice to Management

    Your managment team is a clique. Not a team. You do not recognize hard work, loyalty, devotion, talent. Nor do you care about it. All that seems to matter to you is the bottom dollar, and if the person you're working with meets your "standards." Which apparently only consists of a decent smile and eye catching wardrobe. You overwork some people, let others slide, then wonder why the overworked employee is disgruntled, while heaping praise on the people who avoided the work.

    Pros

    Location in the city. There are very few clinical research jobs in Colorado Springs and so this is one of the only options.

    Cons

    Unsupportive management high pressure overworked staff and little reward. Mispaced praise on enmploees who do not deserve it. Staff is very competitive, and there is little comradory. Very catty.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the office gossip and bickering. Find out who is really doing the work and reward them. Hire more staff. This will create less turnover and less stress.
