    I worked at Take Care Health

    Pros

    My boss was the best part of this job.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, pay, and benefits. Don't think that hard work and dedication will get you anywhere with this company. No promotions, perks, and 15 cent raises. Cheapest company I have ever worked for. MOVE ON!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees for hard work and years spent with this company. Give some decent raises and recognition to those who deserve it.

    Pros

    Good co-workers, flexible schedules, good work/life balance. Always someone to reach out to for help and doors of management are always open to listen to concerns.

    Cons

    Integration with Walgreens corporate culture could be going smoother.

    I have been working at Take Care Health part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has good pay for work load expectations.
    Very flexible and accommodating schedule. Benefits and
    salary are higher than average office jobs in Charlotte, NC.

    Cons

    Providers micro manage staff, not much room for personal growth,
    office culture is strict and management will not have your back, this is a
    very corporate feeling company for health care workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging your employees. Offer growth opportunities and ongoing
    education for all employees to promote professional development.

    Misleading and Manipulative Manager

    Former Employee - On Call Group Fitness Instructor in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - On Call Group Fitness Instructor in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Take Care Health part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an on call Group Fitness Instructor the pay is great for each 45 minute class. I enjoyed working with the gym members and having free reign to design classes. Also, some opportunities to sub for an hourly rate.

    The pay rate for full-time is rather low (32-34k) but is only M-F. You are paid extra for personal training DURING work hours.

    Cons

    The pay rate is rather low for full-time employees and the workload is very high. Schedules are more or less fixed and you do not get paid extra to teach classes, they are apart of your job. Managers do not communicate with employees and are puppets acting for higher managers. Management treats employees like "staff" and not fellow employees when only 3 people are full-time.

    Management asked employees to get a certification and was promised to be moved up in the company then was terminated suddenly and without merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better communication with on call employees. If you have someone that wants to move up in the company, give them a clear understanding of those possibilities.

    Overall good, very bad recent merger

    I have been working at Take Care Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Compensation is good
    - Time off is fair
    - Healthcare knowledge is good

    Cons

    Walgreen's recently sold the Employers Solution Group of TCH and a very bad merger with a much smaller company was forced. Since the ESG Group had a Divisional structure the new owners placed the smaller company's management in charge. This new team is woefully inadequate and are operating from a 10 year old business plan and operating structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the big boys in charge

    Good company, need organization sometimes

    I worked at Take Care Health

    Pros

    generally the onsite health offices are great places to work and care for patients.

    Cons

    However they tend to single provider units and Take Care as a company sometimes has trouble really meeting the needs of the provider in an organized and effective manner. The corporate feel only increased over the 3 years I worked for them, but I wouldn't consider any of these issues a deal breaker as the onsite clinic are generally great places to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep everyone in the loop in communication really helps smooth the bumps in the road

    I will never work here again

    I worked at Take Care Health

    Pros

    I did not like any thing here. I was working over there just because they hired me immediately.

    Cons

    Highly stressful.
    I have never seen any organization doing this type of weekly releases.(Dev+Test in 1 week)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not interested in providing any advice.

    I worked at Take Care Health part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with work time as long as the job gets done. Able to work independently. Casual work environment. Compensation fair. Positive work life balance.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth or development. Mid-level management too overwhelmed and overstressed to listen.They are uninformed of company policy and procedure. Junior lead staff are inexperienced and poorly trained making them stressed in dealing with their role. End users receive no support. Impersonal, apathetic culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees, mentor them, grow them in the company, listen to them.

    Pros

    If you like 12 hour shifts and no take home work this may work for you.

    Cons

    Very little flexibility beyond begging people to pick up shifts. Management doesn't show consideration for the FNPs - the focus is completely about the numbers. The bonus opportunity is a joke and is based on the market not on your own work. They've cut the MAs. EMR frequently breaks but they don't invest in long term fixes. Just overall a disappointing experience and I'm glad it's over.
