    Pros

    Small enough company that you are valued, employees are personable, the company is growing very fast, salaries are pretty decent, friendly faces

    Cons

    Resources are scarce, no help desk phone number, insurance premiums are ridiculous, heavily east coast locations, training is very limits

    Advice to Management

    Support your field, update website, provide more training, allow visits to corporate office more than 3 x per year, laptops need update, cell phone service is shaky at different accounts

    I worked at Unidine full-time

    Pros

    Some nice people.
    You can fake it and make it.

    Cons

    Too many to list but it all starts at the top. The reason there are so many jobs open is because turnover is so high (employees and customer accounts).

    Advice to Management

    Time to sell.

    Pros

    Corporate culture is the roadmap for Unidine's success. It sets common goals for everyone in the organization and is foundational at every level of the organization. Solutions are solicited at every level, bringing great ideas to the forefront with the mantra none of us are as smart as all of us. Unidine is a true entrepreneurial organization the draws the top talent in the industry. It's great to work everyday with such solid talented people who love to improve everyday.

    Cons

    Health insurance is at market rates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work focusing on our employees. What we do isn't for everyone.

    Pros

    Room for potential growth and expansion with rapid growing company. It a company that you definitely get out it what you put in it.

    Cons

    Often run into procedures and guidelines (HR) that won't let me effectively manage employees at my location. Need more on hand training for new managers instead of webinars.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive to make Unidine a great growing company. Personally might be the best company I've worked for.
