- Steward Health Care Holdings LLC15.Jun 2019
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.
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.
I seem to miss more than a couple company memos for some reason.
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
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.
i guess? i've never thought of Steward as being super environmentally aware.
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)
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."
ramps, elevators, stalls, wide hallways
regular training provided (and required) for workplace safety and information security
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.
