No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great benefits
First level managers are very understanding
Reasonable pay for new & experienced employees
Plenty of available PTO days
Family atomsphere (somewhat)

Cons

Virtually every man/woman in a leadership position in Texas comes from Illinois
Longevity carries too much weight
Butt-kissing seems to get you further than simply being the most effective worker

Advice to Management

I work in an area where there are three separate departments on the same floor. One area is extremely diverse and almost completely female. The second area has a good mixture of men/women of various races and the third area is comprised of mostly males of the majority race (this is the case in both Chicago and Richardson). The problem is that the people in leadership positions are mostly drawn from the last department. Walking through the HCSC building, you see tremendous diversity but the top of the organizational chart doesn't reflect that....though I will say that the company has far more females in top positions than most other companies (great for us ladies).

The worker bees (most of them) and the lower level, front-line managers are excellent. The problem is that there are far too many layers and bureaucratic red-tape.

HCSC needs to begin promoting Texas talent to managerial positions. There are far too many high quality natives for us not to have some higher level leadership grown close to home.
