Suggestions for improvement

  • A better insurance policy would be nice. As employees working at a healthcare facility, we should not have deductibles or a coinsurance.

What I like about the company

My manager is always giving us positivity pep talks, Reminding us of what we are here for and to not get caught up in drama. She is always willing to take the time to sit down with us if we are having a problem and give good, solid advice.

What I dislike about the company

The parking situation for good parking is way too expensive. And for those who are not able to pay the price, the free, remote parking is a major inconvenience, tacking on a good 20 minutes to the end of the day.

What I like about the company

I love working with my patients an coworkers.

What I dislike about the company

Management. I feel there is a great opportunity to improve leadership within our company. I feel that some management is not well suited for their job and would benefit from taking some sort of course on leadership styles. They of course would have to welcome the feedback and learn from it without taking it personally.

Company Culture

Everyone is motivated to do a great job because they know how important their work is to cancer research.

Support from management

My director was awesome and always gave great feedback and was super positive and encouraging even during stressful times. Upper management in the cancer center is also great and there's lots of support.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was okay but even if you had upper management pushing for a raise for you enthusiastically to try to get you close to your co-workers it wouldn't ever get approved.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make your employees feel appreciated!

What I like about the company

I think they have some really great management there but their hands are very tied as far as the budget goes and it seems like some people aren't properly compensated for the amount of work they do.

What I dislike about the company

Getting a raise was near impossible, then when one was mandatory due to legislation if you had gotten any raise (even 2%) in the last year you didn't get the raise. Makes you feel like the "amazing job" you did to earn the 2% raise was for nothing because now everyone gets one anyways.
