    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay, time off, and benefits were good.

    Cons

    Co-workers were not friendly and yelled often. Was taught processes then told not to do them. Was degraded by co-workers often. I loved my job but the people I worked with were mean, not helpful, slow, and argumentative. The manager rarely came to the department.

    Pros

    Always something to be done. You could do everyone's job and learn various skills. You get to meet people from all walks of life. Serving patients in a support role.

    Cons

    Mismanagement leading to several public and private layoffs. Poorly trained mid-level management. Extremely high turnover. Lack of proper oversight and corrective actions for poor work behaviors.

    Advice to Management

    Change yearly evaluation tools regarding job performance. Improve the points system to allow employees additional flexibility. Increase transparency regarding actual financial stability/instability. Fire managers who excessively abuse authority and encourage ethical and moral dilemmas.

    Pros

    Good pay and that's about it

    Cons

    Just coming off the third lay off. Cliques are mainstay at the Center, and as long as you are "friends" with management or adminstration, your job is secure. Patients are mentioning to stakeholders that the changes are alarming, but management is not listening. Instead of "fixing" processes that are broken management makes decisions about their area that do not improve processes, rather they create more work for staff. Some managers have NEVER been at the bedside, but they are in charge of highly skilled nurses - again, it's "who you know", rather than "experience". Morale is at an all time low - nursing is over worked.

    Advice to Management

    You are going to lose good workers who are fed up with the lack of work life balance, the vilification of errors. Toxic environment. Employees leave managers, they don't leave companies.... just a reminder.

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time

    Pros

    They have a very nice time off policy

    Cons

    Where do I begin?

    - People don’t reply to your emails
    - You would think there would be some sort of training and there’s NONE.
    - No support and guidance whatsoever
    - People are very caddy. Are we in 7th grade?
    - Everyone literally seems lost. No one works together. You’ll have 12 meetings a day and nothing is accomplished.
    - CEO isn’t visible.
    - No company credit card so if you’re expected to travel you’ll be paying for everything out of pocket and have to wait weeks to get reimbursed.
    - No work-life balance. Very little care for you personal time.
    - Leadership is pushing doctors to do procedures simply for more money. Doctors have said they are not busy and they have made suggestions to help get business but no one listens. That’s how it goes there.

    If you’re used to working with an organization that supports you, provides guidance, wiling to go above and beyond to help, and cares about their employees this is not the place for you. Management is terrible and you know the saying, people leave terrible managers.

    I have only wrote one other review and that was for a good employer so just know this is a terrible organization. I completely understand everyone will have a different opinion but like I said above, if you’re used to a level of support and guidance (especially when you’re new) I would strongly consider looking elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Place people who know what they are doing in management positions. There needs to be a clear strategy across the organization and direction on how to get there.

    Pros

    10% of staff cut - organizational wide! A good housekeeping effort done the right way. This company has class - and took care of those leaving! Their are pockets of exceptional leadership and performance trying to survive a very bumpy road. The company is losing market share and struggling to redefine their operating model. Some good decisions with the downsizing some - long overdue.

    Cons

    All are hoping those placed in interim leadership roles don't permanently replace the under-performers ousted this week.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right people in the right roles! Less politics and decisions driven by who you know. The McKinsey-connection is great for designing strategy, but not leadership. You're losing credibility with your staff...that's going to bleed into patient experience. Owners/shareholders need to open their eyes - a lot at stake here.
