    a family business

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsAlthough the company is on the verge of competing with larger companies, it still has a small business feel. It is a family business and in many ways, the company is treated as an extension of the family. You can generally expect to be treated well and with loyalty, and employees are empowered to try new things.

    ConsThe family business aspect comes with downsides: many hires and collaborations are based on personal or familial relationships rather than skill. The managerial laisser faire that empowers employees has the downside that strong employees can intrude upon weaker ones.

    It's a paycheck

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a job
    It has benefits

    ConsCompany does NOT care about their employees
    If there is an allegation against you, you can be suspended w/o being told why...for several months
    Top management is totally out of touch with staff, they spend all their time in meetings
    New facility director doesn't seem to be helping and barely even speaks to staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of your meetings and see what is going on. Be open to staff suggestions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Wish I had never started

    Health Care (Current Employee)

    ProsCan be interesting.
    Chance for advancement if willing to re-locate.
    Salary is competitive in my field.
    Used to love working here, but company has changed too much.

    ConsRegional management does not back facility management.
    Terrible pay for officers.
    Driven by money alone.
    Company has hired unqualified people in upper management that are judgemental, but not helpful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStand back and take a good look at what has happened to this company in the last 3 to 4 years. Look at the leadership you have lost and look forward to losing more leadership in the field because your regional and corporate directors are not being supportive.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
