    I have been working at Schumacher Clinical Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good structure, stability in roles, and clear goals as a company. SCP values our culture and relationships with clients, providers, and patients - and it's easy to see how the work we do benefits the bottom line and relates back to the vision and mission of SCP. The growth has been challenging, but also very rewarding - and I feel the recognition programs have improved greatly in order to show employees how much the company cares. I appreciate this, as someone who came on board before the company expanded - it's exciting to see where we are headed.

    Cons

    Growth can produce a lot of change, and some of the changes have been difficult to manage. Consistent communication is also a challenge in times of growth, but more frequent company news, staff meetings, and reinstatement of our management forum are proving to be helpful. The organizational structure can also be confusing - a lot of top level leadership and middle management, with varying types of nomenclature for similar roles.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a very clear and concise organizational structure and be transparent about roles. Virtual connections will also be extremely important as the company grows - serious consideration should be given to investing in technology that can better engage all employees across the country.

    Pros

    Great manager who really cared about his employees. Worked hard for us.

    Cons

    Above my manager, no one else really cared. Schumacher is focused on appearance so it can go public. That fact was proven when a human resource manager from a dying company was hired to run recruiting, cleaned house to streamline to one office and then was "promoted" to Human Resources. She never cared about the people she uprooted, just her next position.

    Advice to Management

    Merge with another company and let them run Schumacher.

    Pros

    Great resources and applications to track work

    Cons

    Young, good looking MBAs with no people skills get promoted and have no idea how to manage employees. The leadership is riddled with older physicians who just want the company to get awards and be loved, they upgrade systems and get accolades, but degrade employees on fhe front line. Very out of touch, always wanting to be the latest and greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at who does the work and who gets the credit. Just because someone has large breasts doesn't make them a good employee.

    Pros

    expanding and acquiring more companies so plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Not much room to move up and learn more unless you're at corporate where there are more positions. Very political in their choices. Communicate! To EVERYONE, not just mgrs on up. Seems very secretive. Mom and pop company originally but now just like the rest of the corporate world and all about the $$. Show more concern for the patients and keeping hard working, loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say you're going to do, follow your own expectations and hold yourself accountable. Stop the office gossip. CRO seems hands off and very political in his decisions.

    I have been working at Schumacher Clinical Partners full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent time off policy
    Office location

    Cons

    Pay does not equal actual work expectations
    Lack of career advancement opportunities
    Lack of proper leadership
    Lack of positive work environment
    Low morale
    More cubicle and shared office environments

    Advice to Management

    Good team morale, positive attitude and work output will come for majority of employees if leadership is even half way decent. Schumacher has failed in the leadership area. Putting people in an area of cubicles or shared offices packed like sardines is a recipe for high tension and does not promote efficiency in work. Many people hate going to work, it's just a means to an end. Spending hours and hours in these environments is not healthy. Small situations become worst because of the tensions felt and environment.

    I worked at Schumacher Clinical Partners (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Close knit group of people who care about one another.
    - Many very knowledgeable individuals in specific areas.
    - Strong desire to "make change".

    Cons

    - Insularity that borders on unhealthy. Too much promotion from within.
    - Fear of anyone with actual experience outside of SG or Lafayette.
    - Lack of injection of new thinking.
    - Bright shiny object syndrome - willing to throw over something established for something new, well, just because.
    - Wasted expenditure of energy of fruitless initiatives.
    - Lip service to process improvement, but nothing ever gained, even from significantly lengthy and expensive exercises.
    - No sense of how to truly prioritize requests.
    - Frustrating environment.
    - People more focused on team building than actual work.
    - Convinced no one in management could actual spell "ROI".

    Advice to Management

    None. They made a cascade of bad decisions when it came to process and staffing. Assume they just plan to sell off the contracts at some point.

    Pros

    Growing, team oriented, fast paced.

    Cons

    With growth comes growing pains. There is currently a lot of disorganization and confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly communicate to the 'worker bee's' the plans for acquisitions and growth. Everyone seems out of the loop.
