Pros

Executive Leadership is very strong and works hard to deliver on the promise of the values and company culture to the lowest level of staff.

The plan for 2011 is strong.

Cons

Pay is terrible for San Diego.

Advice to Management

You guys are doing a great job at making the entry level folks feel valued and listened to - well done. Your Director-level management team needs more of this or your going to start to lose much of the backbone that got you through the recession.

    No opinion of CEO

    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!

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
