How would we describe the company culture?

The employees and leadership at Pima Medical Institute work together to ensure the success of its students. As a family-run and employee-owned organization, Pima is devoted to a culture of "we're all in it together." 

Tenured employees, and a culture of closeness, caring, and compassion mean that members of the Pima faculty and staff have been with the organization for decades.

At Pima, everyone has a voice and is encouraged to use it no matter the level of position in order to create a positive, thoughtful and engaging atmosphere.

Company Culture

Pima is an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company and it shows in the way the employees approach their work and are valued for their contributions.

Support from management

From the top of the Organization to an entry level position, everyone is treated with dignity and respect and that makes for an awesome work environment.

Teamwork

I have never worked for a company that is so compassionate about what they do, that it's infectious throughout the Company.

Freedom to work independently

I have a lot of autonomy in my daily work. My supervisor is there for guidance if need be, but doesn't micro manage us.

Internal Communication

Pima practices Open Book Management and leadership shares information regarding growth goals and critical numbers with all employee owners. It's great to know what we are all working towards and helps us to reach our goals.

Work-Life Balance

Pima recognizes that we have lives outside of work, and provides a very acceptable work-life balance. It's a very family oriented worked environment.

Company Image

Pima Medical Institute is well respected within the Industry.

Teamwork

I have never worked with a nicer group of people. Lots of heart at PMI.

Internal Communication

Could be room for improvement in this area.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many PMI employees are seasoned medical professionals who 'retired' from their careers and are now teaching.

Career Development

No one leaves PMI until they retire and while that is a great thing for company culture, there is not a lot of room to move up.

Overall compensation for your work

The benefits make up for it.

Office / Work Environment

I love seeing people interact, longtime friendships and being able to bring your dog to work!

Work-Life Balance

Generous PTO and flexibility for family/health obligations.

Company Image

Management and CEO really care about the Company mission, the staff and more importantly the students!

Workplace Safety

All buildings are secured with a passcode.

What I like about the company

The ESOP at PMI allows employees a benefit that you don't find at other Companies.
