    Current Employee - Anonymous
    Current Employee - Anonymous

    Pros

    Flexibility, but not in all areas

    Cons

    So many, don't know where to start. Teammates are overworked and mentally beaten up with little to no appreciation or return. Merit increases are a joke!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at Director/VP level mgmt they manage by fear. To much politics, it's all about who you know, not what you know or the effort put in. You are losing all of your knowledgeable employees due to being pushed out by the Buddy system.

    Former Employee - Sonographer in Phoenix, AZ (US)

    Pros

    That I do not work there anymore. Pay was average.

    Cons

    horrible management, you are considered a number to this company not a human. My facility was closed 2 weeks before Christmas with 2 weeks notice, benefits were awful, lots of politics, the office was very divided unfriendly co-workers and very clique-ey work environment. It was a depressing place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a moment to get to know your employees, a smile goes a long way. Have a conversation with us once in a while instead of only meeting with us when there are issues. Communication was horrible between management and employees. I was afraid to bring up any issues because it was some how never resolved and they always looked at you different if you brought up any problems or concerns you had.

    Former Employee - Network Architect in Miami, FL (US)

    Pros

    Large company, good benefits. Frequent re-organizations teaches flexibility. Always pays on time. They have a process for everything!

    Cons

    Large company, and you get lost in the shuffle. You are just a number to management. There is a culture of always watching behind your back, because you never know who has the next knife. The Insight values mean nothing. They are great at recruitment since they are always having to replace employees!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the fighting between teams within the company. Cultivate the best out of people, not the people that are best at discord. Talk to those people who are leaving, there is a culture issue.
