    Cons

    Managers change frequently. Don't expect a promotion under this circumstance.
    Top heavy organization.
    Co-workers commonly transfer before completion of (any) projects. It will be a mystery what some employees are actually working on.
    No rationale why particular employees receive promotion after promotion. Also, it is typical to offer management positions to outside candidates.
    Certain managers not accessible or approachable. Will consult with specific employees for communication.
    Company looks stable, but can't be, since they layoff employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align priorities between cross-functions. Assign a short list of objectives to your staff. Promote existing employees with a history of documented successes. Lead by example. Demonstrate an understanding of company policies and the ability to construct a project timeline. Employees are subjected to outright mean and bully type managers. Regarding Critical Care comments on the other reviews, I would have to agree. Time to address company culture if you haven't done so yet. Hopefully, it's better place to work there now!

    Confusing. The company is great, but the upper level management while good at their jobs are not competent leaders.

    Pros

    The company truly does focus on the patient and from the first day you feel like the company cares about the people working for them in a unique way.

    Cons

    While the company is patient and employee focused, the upper management I've worked with lacks much in people skills, leadership, and management abilities. Just because someone is really good at their job doesn't mean they'll be really good and managing people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to who does what in your department. Consider raises and promotions on merit instead of time served. Learn to listen.
