Company Culture

I work with great people, but my work arrangement with that team is why I give it three stars. I'm very isolated from my teammates and in fact we're all pretty spread out in the region. Not much occasion for get-togethers.

Support from management

most of the time yes. my first manager, after he left the company, said I should start thinking about leaving too. That was less than three months into my tenure with Steward.

Teamwork

I don't know what it means to encourage honest, direct interactions. Maybe we do? There are regular opportunities to bring concerns to light on conference calls and such.

Freedom to work independently

I'd say about half my work is done independently with no problems.

Internal Communication

I seem to miss more than a couple company memos for some reason.

Gender Equality

No doubt there's something fishy going on within the company that I don't notice, but at the same time there are many women in highly technical or high-level management roles

Attitude towards older colleagues

I don't think there's anyone under 45 in the senior offices

Career Development

continuing education is encouraged

Overall compensation for your work

I am easily 5 or 6 grand below the median depending on who conducts the measurements

Office / Work Environment

sometimes takes a while to get the hardware needed, but other than that you get everything you need.

Environmental Friendliness

i guess? i've never thought of Steward as being super environmentally aware.

Work-Life Balance

I work in the greater Boston area. This idea of work-life balance could be achieved, I think, if there were no commuting to and from the office (i work remotely twice a week)

Company Image

It's not necessarily the company- it's me. I know i'm not working where I want to work, doing what I want to do, and therefore I don't shout it from the mountains that I work for Steward. It's too "office."

Handicapped Accessibility

ramps, elevators, stalls, wide hallways

Workplace Safety

regular training provided (and required) for workplace safety and information security

Challenging Work

I knew virtually nothing about what I do today, so that made it challenging to start, and there are always new challenges to tackle especially now that more integration is going on across the country.

Inclusive / Diverse

Seems diversity is valued, but again can't speak for the whole company on this topic.

Suggestions for improvement

  • reinstate local holidays for paid time off, as in, marathon monday (Patriot's Day) off, even though HQ is in Texas now and not MA. Give employees an education stipend up front, maybe like $500 to take some quick online classes throughout the year, and another $200 for education completely outside the scope of your job function, to give employees something else to think about and flex different parts of their brains and maybe discover new interests that keeps them engaged.

What I like about the company

getting opportunities to have my work presented in professional journals and conferences, even if it's a senior level guy doing the talking, it's nice to know I'm useful in such a large organization.

What I dislike about the company

I don't have anything specific. I'll say the company as a whole could be a little less uptight.

Company Culture

The team itself is fine but we're so geographically isolated and rarely see each other so it feels lonely sometimes. I also work more with other departments than I do my own.

Support from management

A bit. I don't know what management could do to be better, maybe be a little more aware of the well-being of not oft seen analysts.

Teamwork

Eh...thoughts can be shared but so much is governed by the top execs out of Dallas, or by state and federal guidelines.

Freedom to work independently

I've worked independently for the last two and a half years since our main office was disaggregated and dolled out among the greater Boston towns.

Internal Communication

Some things get lost in translation, like how certain holidays were eliminated, and the who thing where my prior supervisor vanished with no warning one morning, and that afternoon my new manager showed up and i looked like a deer in the f*#king headlights when he introduced himself.

Gender Equality

Healthy mix of genders at all levels of the organization. My coworkers are predominantly women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees stick around from what I have observed.

Career Development

It's incumbent on us to make our own educations, and there is time to do that and reimbursement is available.

Overall compensation for your work

I am not at all paid enough to live in the region in which I work. I SHOULD be able to make ends meet with my salary, but the greater Boston area insists on being expensive.

Office / Work Environment

I mean, it's not uncomfortable in the traditional sense, but it wears on you to have to commute to work in this region, and I count commutes as part of the work environment. Before I got approved to work from home twice a week, it was a part time job driving to and from work, and I only live 14 miles from my office.

Environmental Friendliness

We run a tight ship, and facilities are always on the ball.

Work-Life Balance

We have lots of freedom to pursue education outside our proprietary "university," and my manager is very understanding of my life's needs outside the office

Company Image

I don't feel valued and I don't feel my job adds much of anything that someone else couldn't do, which isn't entirely fair to my employer, but I mean it in more of the sense that there would be no reason to hire someone to take my place if I were to leave. I also don't feel like I'd be fired tomorrow, which in a weird way is uncomfortable, like i'm not even noticed.

Handicapped Accessibility

Many offices are single-floor, and all of them have elevators and ramps and some have braille.

Workplace Safety

We are regularly educated on emergency procedures, HIPPA guidelines, corporate guidelines, and information security practices.

Challenging Work

It's a pretty healthy workload which also allows for a lot of time for training and continuing education, which I've engaged in in order to make my job more challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

All makes and models come through the doors.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop pretending like there isn't money to pay people what they should be paid not just for the work they do, but so they can live in the area where they are paid to do the work they do. Stop pretending that a salary is based on national averages or that you should work harder, no, if you don't pay enough to live, people will make money elsewhere, and on company time too.

What I like about the company

It's neat to have been part of an expansion that made Steward a national network, and to have built some standard reports and reporting procedures for the network to use. Some of my analyses and infographics have been featured in professional journals too.

What I dislike about the company

I'm not a fan of how impersonal our communication has become. I haven't seen my manger in person in over a year. Even some semi-regular lunch and brainstorm meetings would be a nice change.

Every once in a while there is an security inncodent. But Security department is usally right on it.

Challenging Work

The work load, for ICU Tech, and Nursing Assistant, is overwelming.

Inclusive / Diverse

Steward has become very diverse, over the years.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hirer more workers, like Nursing assistant and housekeepers(Ancillary Staff) and properly train them.
