    Pros

    Strong corporate culture; investment in communities and for the under served; opportunities for mission work; dynamic corporate leadership

    Cons

    Local management does not reflect or practice corporate ideals and values; promotion based on relationships, rather than abilities; toxic work environment; retaliation if you challenge the norm. When I started, I was told not to trust anyone and keep all emails in order to cover my a**. Sadly, the person was right. Promotion based on being a part of the "in" crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Tenure does not equate to ability or knowledge. Talented people are leaving the company or unhappy because the area leadership is not trustworthy and simply does not have the SKA's to support the teammates who report to them. Ensure that the culture demonstrated at ALM is actually translating to the centers.

    I have been working at Surgical Care Affiliates full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty great. Corporate as a whole seems pretty supportive. Many teammates have stayed for many years. I work with a great group of people at the non exempt level.

    Cons

    Regional level management is a swinging door so every year or two we have a different business exec on their way up the corporate ladder stop through and try to stir things up. Usually very business savy but no ASC knowledge or knowledge of the local market and patient base. Too much nepotism taking place with no real restrictions from facility to facility. We have managers being promoted with zero people skills allowing conflict to escalate in an otherwise wonderful company to work for. I would highly recommend a position at Corporate or remote offices but complete opposite of the ASC's themselves. I have seen harassment of employees from the time I started and it has mostly been from managers.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE. LISTEN. Hold yourselves to the same standards and give praise or recognition from time to time. Stop feeding the flames of teammate drama. As a manager you should always be above harassing your employees. I have never seen so many women acting like high school bullies in my life.

    No weekends or some weekends; management buys food on some days; some helpful co-workers; department head was nice & supportive.

    Pros

    Great Teammates and a lot of things to learn.

    Cons

    If your not into kissing up to management then you won't move around in the company. A lot of promises are made for new things and they fall through the cracks. There are not many people in the office with more than 2 years experience because of the management/leadership. Policies and procedures are made by people who never have actually performed the job function the changes will effect. Positions are offered and they are suddenly removed. Supervisors are in charge of departments they never even worked before so they can't assist in answering questions. The morale is very low and every day at least 2-3 people quit the job. They can't hire and retain employees to continue the work. There is no consistency across the board on some company policies. If a manager does not like you they discuss it with everyone else in the office instead of addressing the person. They say they are wanting people that will fit the culture and they will only happen if they want 4 year olds to work for them. They have babysitting hours twice a day. Management comes up with rules and polices and are the first ones to break the rules. Not a professional place at all.

    Advice to Management

    Know your job and be able to jump in and assist the team when needed. Stop using your position of power to intimidate your employees.
