    Pros

    Good money, friendly people, supportive environment!

    Cons

    Management will NOT help you! High retention rates in some areas, because of the manager, and no one gives it a thought that may be the issue!

    Advice to Management

    Replace some of your management, especially those with complaints and high retention rates. Many employees will not discuss issues because it is with management and they are scared of the repercussions, such as being let go.

  4. "Couldn’t imagine it being Worse"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at FirstHealth of the Carolinas

    Pros

    Great for if you like having your work activities, processes, and schedule dictated by people who do not understand physics or the job role of the physicist. Some of the therapists are genuinely kind.

    Cons

    No accountability by the staff, lying is rewarded by the management, and a total lack of direct clear communication. What they say they want is not congruent with what they do. Misleading and false advertising of wanting new processes and change, but that is far from the truth. Current management has issues controlling their temper and has physically threatened staff.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what physicists do and let them do their job. Get a consulting group to give you recommendations rather than dictating what you do not understand. Support new staff rather than encouraging current staff to go around and talk to you. Try to see the disfunction you create when you dictate without listening.
