    I have been working at Pacific Pulmonary Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Forward thinking corporate and management team, cares about great patient care and employee engagement. Lots of room to grow as there are many opportunities as things change and evolve. A great place to jump in with both feet and put your footprints on something that will make a difference!

    Cons

    A few new processes and systems that are being developed or fine tuned can make for a lot of changes at once - calls for resiliency and a great attitude! Nothing bad about that unless you don't embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the momentum!

    Pros

    All of my co-workers and managers work together as a team to solve tough issues, and the Managers back their employees. There is a lot of positive reinforcement within the company which is a driving force to work hard and achieve our goals.

    Cons

    We seem to be shorthanded often due to job openings, which puts a lot of work on others. We seem to manage, but hiring takes a long time to fill any position.

    Pros

    The company continues to grow and thrive, even in this tough regulatory market.
    Frequent communication from Senior Leadership Team helps to align efforts across the company
    The corporate office appreciates and incorporates feedback from employees at every level of the company

    Cons

    Reduced reimbursement from Medicare has led to many locations being overworked/understaffed (i.e. the "do more with less mindset")

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and transparent with communication - it is the only way we can function in this tough regulatory market.

    Pros

    Coming from the mortgage industry, it is great working for a company in healthcare that provides basic services (respiratory care) that allow patients to remain healthy and at home. Rather than apologizing for my work, I can be proud of what the company does. Plus, PPS was purchased by a Japanese conglomerate who is funding our expansion...it is exciting to work in an environment of high growth, investment in training and technology, an aggressive recruiting policy for top-notch hires...pretty incredible given the 2009 economy. Because we are growing so fast the work pace can be intense and also is stimulating. Lots of chances to pitch in on projects of interest and to make a contribution...lots of opportunities for growth. The people here are great...fun, intelligent and innovative.

    Cons

    Some growing pains...keeping pace with the growth rate (lots of acquisitions plus organic growth) is a challenge and change is a constant. Not a good job for the 9 to fiver who thrives on routine. Another drawback is our dependence on Medicare reimbursement (a majority of respiratory care patients are elderly) and how cuts and policy changes can impact the bottom line from one year to the next.

    Advice to Management

    The rapid expansion of the company has let to an expansion of the management team with lots of new, potentially great, hires. I hope that they are given a free rein to make changes necessitated by our growth. I guess I'd advise the leaders to provide the space and resources for the expanded team of managers to grow with the company. Also communication within the company is essential, and should be a priority.
