Company reviews
"It's a disaster"
Former EmployeeClinical Nurse Educator
Unrealistic expectations, unclear everything, robotic, you catch my drift. Supportive teammates but it ends there. There are a lot of areas of improvement however I doubt anyone would listen

"It's a great starting job, not a place where diversity is embraced."
Former EmployeePharmaceutical Sales Representative
Work load is fair, management is very understanding and open to talk. There are employees that have worked there for over 5 years and get promoted because they know someone not because they have the skill set to be a manager or a coach. As a minority I never felt that there were equal opportunities to move up the ladder.

"Unrealistic expectations "
Former EmployeeClinical Nurse Educator
Very punitive . Managements plays favorites. Unclear policies. Supportive team of peer nurses with great expertise. Nebulous policies and blame nurses to look good to clients. Unrealistic territory management

Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
Not a friendly work culture. There was more of an emphasis on being cold and robotic. It was easy work, but management was incredibly annoying and unhelpful.
