Pros

You get to meet great people who are generally really nice and outgoiing. Although management may not, the associates you meet there will give you all the insight you could ever ask for in the healthcare industry and anything else you may be interested in. Having a huge work force allows for a unique knowledge sharing experience that is hard to get at smaller companies.

There are no limits to the number of "sick" days that can be used. This being said, you may be expected to work from home on said "sick" day.

The cafeteria has great food, even if it is over-priced.

Overall a great place to start a career but not finish.

Cons

Working from home is a blessing and also a curse. Since everyone is on salary, you may only be in the office from 8 am - 5 pm but that does not mean your day has to end there and management will not expect it to.

For a healthcare company, the benefits could be better although it is nice to have a free clinic on campus to go to. Even though there is a free clinic to go to, some of the doctor's and NP's there are incompetent.

Neal is one cocky SOB. If only he came around and I would actually see him so I could knock him off his pedestal.

Low salaries. Your workers work hard, compensate them.

Advice to Management

I wish senior management was more organized. With the roles I have had there, managers manager in varying ways. Luckily for me right now I am with a great management team.

    Pros

    Interesting and meaningful work. Cutting edge technologies and the opportunity to work with some of the most intelligent people I've ever been able to work with.

    Cons

    The "unwritten" requirement of 48 hours per week for salaried personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the 48 hours per week. You get what you measure. You will get 48 hours per week reported whether or not that was actual time the individual worked.


  2. "Opportunities for advancement - but without the compensation to support it"

    Pros

    Smart, great people who are willing to work very hard, knowledge sharing, opportunities to learn other areas outside of your area of work, ongoing educational opportunities

    Cons

    Below average pay, unfair and inconsistent promotion practices, poor raises, expectation to work beyond your role without appropriate compensation, limited health insurance options, below average company match to 401K, raises not based on performance, definitely matters who you know in company

    Advice to Management

    Base compensation, raises, and promotions on performance. Associates should be paid for the role that they are performing (and held accountable for). Associates have varied experiences based upon role and team - very inconsistent and unfair promotion and compensation practices. "Work hard, play hard" mentality in reality most often translates to "work hard and then work harder".
