    I worked at Block Imaging full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Very healthy environment -Supportive -Encapsulates the rue meaning of "team work" -Very transparent

    Cons

    While I don't view this as a con, it should be noted that if you are coming from a very traditional work culture, it might take some time adjusting to the culture at Block. The job I had before working at Block as very formal and traditional and because of that it was hard at first to get use to the laid back atmosphere at Block. After a couple of days however, I found it to be a breath of fresh air.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Block Imaging full-time

    Pros

    Friendly people, willing to invest in you.

    Cons

    Low pay/long hours. I also didn’t really like how forceful they were with bonding with your team.

    I worked at Block Imaging full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Easy going sales and marketing jobs. Good schedule if you don't need the money. Outings and retreats for some employees.

    Cons

    The favoritism here is disgusting. The mid and top level managers are like a high school clique. They talk about culture and building great people, but only care about their friends and children. The company will pay some tens of thousands of dollars in bonus checks, yet the equivalent of $10/hr. to others for the same amount of work. The dynamic in the company very hypocritical. Top level management will just make you...

    It’s never fun to hear that someone who’s left our team feels this way – and as a guy who never was in the “cool clique” in high school, I certainly know what it’s like to feel left out. That being said, to address a few of the concerns raised for those who are considering joining ...

    I worked at Block Imaging full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    privately owned company; very family friendly; casual work environment; fun & creative culture; good work/life balance; genuine desire to foster community & value employees

    Cons

    narrow & subjective perspective on who best "fits" with the company culture; poor pay and benefits across the organization (theoretically justified by the intangibles of wholesome culture, etc.); leadership team plays favorites and often-times undermines the leadership of mid-management; for every employee that feels "valued" and never wants to leave the Block Imaging utopia, there are two employees on the fringe whose...

    take off the rose colored glasses - yes, Block Imaging has some unique areas of strength, but there are some real weaknesses too... both internally and externally

    I worked at Block Imaging full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    They seem to truly care about the personal development of their employees and do a great job of fostering excitement around the company. It's a growing company, so there's a lot of change that occurs and it can be very exhilarating to be a part of it. The company is also very open about their financial status, having meetings that walk through the profits and goals. They are definitely an industry leader in 3rd party...

    Cons

    Outside of sales and some upper management, you won't be paid well within the industry. They have a habit of under-titling employees for their actual responsibilities and as a result they pay poorly. The fact that employees know how profitable the company is makes the poor pay hard to swallow. When I left, I was surprised at how many job offers I received - when I took my new job, I asked why they had offered me the position...

    Advice to Management

    Don't manipulate new (and often young) hires by growth potential. It's cheaper for you to do, but it doesn't make it right. Pay them well, you have the cash. Title accurately - look at your lower level coordinator and representative positions, and determine the amount of responsibility they carry vs other companies in the industry. When employees come to you with researched concerns, listen - don't manipulate them into...

    I have been working at Block Imaging for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The Block Imaging team is an incredible group of people, both in their pursuit of the mission that "People Matter" and in their talent, individually and collectively. Such a fun and dynamic team to be a part of.

    Cons

    The Block Imaging team has lots of experience and yet is quite young. This lack of outside experience is beneficial in that we don't tend to live by (or sometimes even know) the "standard way" and yet there are principles and practices of those that have gone before us that are helpful in providing insight for best path to take.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going and growing. Block Imaging's impact on the community and industry is big and important!

    I worked at Block Imaging full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A positive environment where managers actually care about their employees' professional development and personal life. Excellent work gains recognition. Opportunities for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    There could be real ups and downs in work pace; times of a relaxed pace followed by periods of intense demands. However this is not unusual for a sales-driven business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Thank you for creating a positive community where everyone's ideas and contributions are valued, and "pecking order" doesn't exist.

    I have been working at Block Imaging part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Environment, professional development plans, always hiring. Never had a problem going to upper management to talk or suggest new ideas. Little amount of corporate politics.

    Cons

    Can be slow some days. Getting answers from upper management on new projects can be slow sometimes. Since its smaller, people dont have a problem interrupting your work when they need something.

    I have been working at Block Imaging full-time

    Pros

    I have loved working at Block Imaging for the last several years. It is a very encouraging environment. The team is very close knit and more of a family than that of a traditional company. Great place to take on new challenges and problem solving. Excellent management who really care about their staff.

    Cons

    The work that is done can be very challenging. The company goes in a lot of different directions and has high expectations.
