    I have been working at Health Quest full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are affordable and they include dental and eye coverage. Paid time off accumulates quickly. Clean and safe work environment.

    Cons

    Salaries are below average. Company hires from outside rather than promoting qualified employees from within the organization. Heavy work load.

    Advice to Management

    Promote dedicated, high performers

    I have been working at Health Quest part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly and cafeteria has pizza.

    Cons

    Management lies, uses people, is deceitful and discriminatory. Hard work goes unrecognized and advancement is a pipe-dream.

    Human Resources is a joke. There only there to protect the antics of upper management and protect them when they lie and backstab.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being vile snakes! Be human. Nurture and listen to your staff.

    I worked at Health Quest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If your a patient you will receive great care. The staff that don't quit after two months are truly invested in the care of their patients.

    Cons

    Employees are over worked and under appreciated. Management lacks in overall organizational behavior skills. Employees are treated unfairly. There is an overall lack of communication. Employee engage surveys are rigged, and the solutions put in place to enhance employee moral are insulting. Administration is only concerned about the all mighty dollar. The Human Resources department is a joke and the new CHRO they brought in needs a lesson in overall people skills and respect of others. Basically, unless you are willing to sell your soul, lower your moral and ethical standards and become a robot then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Listen to your employees. Be proactive and less reactive. Invest your time and attention to those who are overstressed, overwhelmed and overworked. Employees in ALL departments should feel they have a safe haven to go to and not have to resort to the department of labor rather than their poor excuse of an HR department.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, GREAT pto plan, community organization.

    Cons

    Upper management is easily let go with no explanation to staff. Pandering to the lowest common denominator

    Advice to Management

    Throwing food and gifts at staff is not what makes employees feel appreciated. Take time to solve real issues and coach up bad employees rather than humoring them.

    Pros

    I enjoy the work environment

    Cons

    I am technically a full time, permanent temp, intern. This was the title I was given... so I work full time hours with no benefits, retirement, etc. Mostly everyone starts this way. Advancement in my department seems impossible as it takes HR 5 months to even create a job posting so expect to work here at least one full year to see a possibility of advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Fire and change everything about HR.
