    I worked at Ashfield Healthcare Communications full-time

    Pros

    Overall, employees (who are not part of the leadership team) are hardworking and dedicated

    Cons

    Terrible management, little to no organized structure in the company, employees are expected to work on vacation and put in very long hours/nights/weekends. Bad company culture overall.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat.

    I worked at Ashfield Healthcare Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many of the reviews are lies, for anyone in their right mind would not give this company a great review. That is my honest opinion. However, Ashfield, does give benefits and fair amount of days off for an entry level Telemarketing Job. Hours can be flexible, and if you become trusted, they do allow people to work at home.

    Cons

    Poor management, micro-management by lower and middle level management. Adults are not allowed to glance at cell phone during down time or have conversations in some programs or even do cross-words or read a book during down time while on the clock. Many managers will attempt to treat you like children, no matter what the quality of your output. I also had good to excellent reviews and I was given raises that were $0.50 or less. As a matter of fact, I got one of the better raises, when I got $0.57. Then next year was followed by $0.25. The better you get, the more they ask you to do, but you will not get a raise. YOu will just be doing more work. Upper Management makes a tremendous amount of money, yet they do not have enough money for employees. This is a job for women with kids who don't want to work anymore or retirees, or College Students with little to no experience.

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a culture, and stop treating adult professional staff with more education than management like surplus capital. Give legitimate raises!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ashfield Healthcare Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Initially, there appeared to be a good team dynamic. Nice company parties. Office is decently quiet for writing.

    Cons

    Little to no training for most roles. Retroactive micromanagement. Very hierarchical and title driven. Higher management is generally inaccessible.

    Advice to Management

    Medcomms is stressful, but please don't promote a toxic workplace.
