I have been working at Home Care Delivered full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free lunches and awesome co-workers

Cons

Unrealistic metrics based on "fear type management", i.e.; no matter how hard you work or how great your performance: you will never be recognized BUT you will be held to an unreasonable level of performance and held in constant fear for your job.
16 people have resigned and or been fired just in 2013 alone.
Cheerless gloom and doom environment where drama reigns and any congeniality is thwarted and killed. Akin to working in a sweat shop with slave labor mentality. Add in the "mean girls" and you have company endorsed harassment at every step. Don't even think about going to HR as what should be investigated is quickly shut down by the tyrant CFO who instead of doing his job is too busy monitoring the conversations of the sales department and then issuing admonishing emails that kill any incentive or feelings of accomplishment.
Don't get sick as there are zero paid sick days. Forced to use your PTO or not get paid for the day.
Total lack of credible leadership as it is easier to rely on "bully" tactics to keep employee's in line.
Obsession with metrics, daily, weekly, monthly and hourly. Commissions based on another department and totally outside of your control. Commissions are a joke and there is no incentive to even make your numbers.
Their view is, you as the employee are the sum of their numerical goals and all meant to create a fear based culture. Very unhealthy organization headed by a tyrannical CFO. Information is closely guarded and hoarded with restrictive rules and policies that create mistrust.
Getting through a typical day requires a focus on keeping ones head down, taking no risks
and sucking up to anyone in management and belies that this organization is soulless.

Advice to Management

Perhaps if you got rid of the BS fear type management that imposes unrealistic performance metrics based on the CFO 's failed vision to lead, you might have a beginning with actually living up to the companies motto of "the best place to work in Virginia".
STOP the micro management and fear based tactics.
Deploy sensible performance goals. Get rid of the ridiculous talk time metric which is utterly useless and in no way relates to job performance but instead is used as a weapon and held over employee's head to toe the line.
Get rid of the brown nosers and stop the favoritism. Any credibility a supervisor or manager had is completely gone as well as any respect they might have had, had this type of behavior been discouraged and or stopped.
Stop rewarding and promoting the least knowledgeable but most fawning ones in the org chart and get rid of the yes people.
You're losing your best talent and market share to other companies who have a trust based culture. Duh Mark!
Stop repackaging old programs that didn't work before and won't work now. Where is the creativity?
Stop the distrust and knife in your back mentality where backstabbers thrive.........

    Pros

    Medical sales experience and coworkers. Really nice group of people but the nepotism is astounding. People in the favored group get passes while the rest of us bust our butts to complete outrageous levels of what is expected. Morale buster to see "favored" employee's get a pass on monthly quotas, consistently late or a no show and yet they get rewarded based on brown nosing.

    Cons

    Horrible middle and upper management-make you feel that you are not valued and you better accept it or you can leave. Best advice is to keep your head down, do your work and do not get caught up in the drama that surrounds the favored ones. First job in my career where I felt my work was similar to what slavery must feel like-it is demoralizing and depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism-it's very obvious that if you work hard you will be passed over by the people who produce substandard efforts. People leaving due to no real ability to move forward unless you are in the circle of liked or worked with them before.
