    Pros

    Fortunate to have a great General Manager who was always supportive and rarely questioned decisions. Great employees who've truly cared about you as an individual.

    Cons

    Lack of work/life balance, refusal of upper management to allow use of vacation despite a use it or lose it policy, expanding out of unit upper management while onsite staff decreased, Unfair pair structure as new people without experience hired at higher salaries

    Advice to Management

    Decrease the amount of upper management, be fair with salaries, follow all federal laws, if you intend to have a use it or lose it vacation policy allow people to use it, reign in your aggressive out of unit managers who've not kept up with standards and allow those who have to implement standards as needed. Reevaluate the need for all out of unit staff as they never provide assistance and remain employed only because of the hard work of the onsite individuals especially in disaster situations. Notice people you have and provide some incentive to remain employed as a superior employee deserves more than a 2-3% increase yearly.

    Pros

    Corporate commitment to customer satisfaction is real. Multiple business units provide opportunities for career advancement/change. Genuine respect for diversity.

    Cons

    Employee experience varies from site to site- but overall- pay hardly matches the effort and time demanded.

    Advice to Management

    Taking care of "internal customers" enhances their willingness to deliver exceptional results. Learn to practice Servant Leadership and watch the difference it can make.

    Pros

    You have control of your unit like it's your own business. You wear many hats as a General Manager.

    Cons

    It's very difficult to move to other roles or positions within the company. The company say they promote within but it's not easy to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving false hope to current employees by saying get additional training. Stop posting jobs when you already know who you're going to put in that position.
