Pros

Largest supplier of healthcare professionals to hospitals. Lots of jobs for healthcare professionals. Company supports national and community charity efforts.

Cons

Low pay for healthcare professionals. You will find yourself the lowest paid travel nurse at your assignment and be charged for things other companies would not charge you for.
There is nothing to encourage healthcare professionals to be loyal to the company. Travelers talk to several people rather than having one point of contact. Paychecks are routinely messed up. Pay is why most people work. It is the most important thing for a travel nurse/allied company to get correct and this company gets it wrong more often than most travelers can take. Continuous decrease in benefits to employees of the company while senior management salaries stay at the top. Company laid off hundreds of employees, slashed benefits while keeping senior management salaries high. Departments are isolated from one another.

Advice to Management

Start to see employees as more than a means to an end. They are human beings. Treat your healthcare providers as if they are as important to you as they really are. Without healthcare providers, you have nothing!

    Pros

    Most managers make an effort to be flexible with work schedules, etc. The company has a gym and cafeteria on site.

    Cons

    Not overly generous on compensation, information is very siloed and not usually forthcoming, certain departments are so territorial it makes getting the job done efficiently very challenging. Company is very insular and not open to new ideas/best practices.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a lack of vision and master plan. Decide on an end-goal and map out a plan to get there, preferably an end-goal that includes integrated systems.

    Pros

    The training was good. 1 week training.

    Cons

    But if you're looking to have a career, don't go here. They make you make 100 calls a day and your work is mindless.

    Advice to Management

    The VP of the company told me that she missed her brother-in-laws funeral when he died suddenly because she just couldn't take off. She said she never took a day off in her time there.
