    Management has no clue, meaning the higher ups in Florida. No idea how a real DME company works and don't care.

    Pros

    Uh, the people at the local level are nice. I'm gonna just put asterisks till I fill the minimum space. *********************************************************** ***** ****** *********

    Cons

    Upper management does not care, nor do they support the needs of the branches. We've been crying out for help for three years, and nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit.

    Pros

    Work from home policy, market comepetive salaries for directors and above

    Cons

    Lack of execution and clear direction leading to a high turnover on the executive level. Too many director and VP level employees with duplicated functions, buerocracy, which ultimately hurts profits and company's market competitiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will be clear from the cons

    Pros

    Some really great individuals with a lot of knowledge employed here.

    Cons

    Disorganized chaos, no support and constant change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start at the basics and rebuild. Great model was lost amongst all the turnover. Customer service is vital and the bottom dollar should not be the only factor in our operations. Get back in touch with your partners and employees.

    Pros

    PE backing of visionary and proven healthcare leader. Ambitious goals and lots of challenging work.

    Cons

    Investor fatigue set in long ago following a few ill fated acquisitions. Unrealistic exit and return expectations led to premature divestiture of more profitable asset, leadership departures and eroding internal client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask a lot of questions about strategic direction, funding, exit plans, bonuses and morale.

    Pros

    The only pros I made was meeting my call center representative's

    Cons

    cons are that supervisors don't know how to communicate and they careless how they treat their reps/the only people who get noticed are the ones who don't do nothing.Raises are bull crap. no supervisor ever want to take supervisor call and that goes for nursing department and their nurses down talk everybody. all departments never answer there phone

    Pros

    Good food - interesting material to learn about the Long Term Care business. It is challenging and can be fun.

    Cons

    I agree with the person who just said they never should have taken the job. And I do not even know that person. The training is lousy and the expectations are unreasonable. I've spent a total of about three hours if even that trying to learn from current employees. They either A. Have no time to help you or B. Will sit down and go through pages of information and then expect you to know it front to back. Don't bother asking follow up questions because they will be viewed with contempt and sarcasm and the feeling that "I already showed you so you should know it". I've been here a month and now I am under pressure to perform like a four year employee. I want out as fast as I can get it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your culture. If my experience becomes common its borderline bullying.
