    Pros

    Decent wages and, umm... Free coffee in the break room...

    Cons

    Poor leadership, terrible management, not a team environment,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the headcount so that you do not rely on contractors of everything. Understand that the people working for you are actually human beings with ideas for improvement. Communicate with them, and understand that ruling with an iron fist will not cultivate an environment of progress, and you will be stuck with analysts who are just there for a paycheck like is currently the norm there. No drive to succeed or improve.

    Pros

    You can advance your career and learn many skills.

    Cons

    It is not what you know educationally. It is more about who you know. Too many politics going on and wasting money. They pay contractors to do the same thing an actual employee does, yet pays them more. Room, board, flights home, meals and rental cars. They over pay upper management that does not work and are just in 20 plus meetings a week. When do they have time to manage and work? Also, there is a serious abuse of working from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop letting people hire their friends and family with out skills and pay attention to people with actual skills.

    Pros

    Clear commitment to quality and patient care; employees take pride in their work. Organization treats employees well and provides good compensation and great benefits.

    Cons

    Hierarchy and "silos" can put a damper on initiative and quick action; however, the organization is taking slow but steady progress in changing that aspect of the culture.

    Pros

    Medical benefits and training are about the only good things in current months,

    Cons

    Just about everything else. We are understaffed, over worked and underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where the money is coming from. Without the physicians and MA staff, no income would be made.. to anyone. Remember to follow through on projects started, and allow for appropriate staff in ALL areas that have direct patient care. Patients notice.
