    Pros

    - Great learning opportunities, with lots of responsibility quickly given to you
    - If you end up with a good regional manager, you have a lot of autonomy and support

    Cons

    - Your experience depends heavily on who your regional manager is. There is wide range in the quality, experience, and support provided by the regional managers.
    - Lots of recent regional managers hired from outside the company with healthcare background, but with no operations background. We end up with a lot of talk about how things should work, but not a lot of talk about how they actually work, and not a lot of helpful ideas of how to make them work better.
    - Heavy focus on improving metrics, without understanding the related investment in time or resources needed to make it happen.
    - You often feel like you are reinventing the wheel.
    - Very challenging to find work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire more regional managers with healthcare operations backgrounds, possibly from current administrators
    - Figure out a way to get anonymous 360 degree on regional managers, and remove the regional managers who are creating problems.

    Pros

    Great benefits, alot of PTO, good pay.

    Cons

    The company is growing faster than the teammates can keep up with. Too many high expectations without the necessary resources. Management can hardly ever take any time off due to always needing to be accessible. There is a lot of favoritism in management and it is hard to hold people accountable when the director is their friend. There was significant structure change in revenue cycle a year ago, since that time there is little confidence in upper management. The "sorority" attitude comes off as very fake and condescending. The teammates are smarter than upper management thinks and is getting tired of the lies.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the teammates and facilities.

    Pros

    The support and network of centers is wonderful. You never feel like your alone. They truly put clinical first. The values and mission to provide care is inspiring.

    Cons

    Sometimes its difficult to attend to all the different conference calls and webinars. The main office is in Chicago and we have a time difference, it can be challenging to make the calls or meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put patient care above all. Making clinical first is the way to go. I know that patient satisfaction is very important, but sometimes clinical decisions take priority.
