Survey Research Associate (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – October 21, 2016
I had amazing co-workers and we all worked extremely hard for our patients. Management seemed unsteady and no one would make final decisions. I loved serving our patients and coaching my co-workers. I looked forward to going to work everyday.
BSN, RN, OCN, HN-BC (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 30, 2016
I love working in CTCA. I have been a nurse there for 8 years. The people are very friendly and and helpful. As a stakeholder, we trust and value for each other. I appreciate the mother standard of care that we offer daily, going above and beyond for our patients. Our cafeteria serves organic food and was awarded for healthy food initiatives. Recently we had some lay off that prompted me look for job else were..
Lead Registrar/ Trainer (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 2, 2016
Working at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America can be challenging when dealing with patients that are as sick as those that I have encountered; but the enjoyment that I receive is when I can make someones day be it a patient or my fellow coworkers. CTCA has taught me how to be humble and complain less.
Patient Accounts Representative (Current Employee) – Zion, IL – August 17, 2016
this place works on who your best friends are, or who's related to who. They work on who they can mold to follow upper managements orders. The patients get great care, and the employees care deeply about the patients. Supervisors favor employees by what you can do for them like get lunch or spy on people they don't care for. Hostile environment and upper management doesn't care. It was a great place to work years ago, but now not so much.
IT Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – August 8, 2016
Company struggling to bring in the money like it used to. Two lay offs in two years. Recently treated a record number of patients, but with lower returns from insurance companies CTCA is still struggling to keep its head above water.
Free water, tea, coffee, snacks, table tennis, and healthy cafeteria.
Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Zion, IL – July 19, 2016
I enjoyed working at CTCA, felt appreciated. Very fast paced job. I had the best co-workers. I worked at CTCA for over 40 years. On the job training, friendly atmosphere. The workload was overwhelming at times though. The most enjoyable was working with the physicians who really cared for the patients. Our patients always came first.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Newnan, GA – July 13, 2016
At first job was great but the longer you work there the more you see the incompetence of management and lack of leadership. Fellow stakeholders have an excellent attitude but unfortunately are consistently misled by untrained and unqualified leaders. This place has potential to be wonderful if only they would replace the leadership.
Talent / Human Resources Internship (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 8, 2016
My time here at CTCA has been amazing. I came in not knowing anyone, with no experience and now I have met some of the greatest people and learned a lot about HR and the company itself. The people I work with are wonderful and they have helped me so much. I've grown up a lot from being here and I would recommend this place to anyone. Even though I'm only interning here for the summer, I honestly would consider coming back to try and get a full time job. They are all dedicated to the jobs that they do and are 100% committed to the patients. They care for everything and everyone and that's what has been so inspiring to me.
Stakeholder (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 6, 2016
The compensation and benefits are good here; however, the politics are the worst ever. Although they always say "It's always and only about the patient," it is more like it's always and only about the dollar. They blame it on the Affordable Care Act; everyone else blames it on poor management. I do not minimize the good work they do, but the love of money too often overcomes common sense and good judgment.
They do not place the best people in available positions, and there is zero opportunity for advancement because all promotions are so politically motivated--depends on who you know and how much you suck up. Senior management is inept and clueless; they are so out of touch with reality they really have no idea what's going on under their noses.
They always lay off the people who do the work and keep the ones who are poor performers without any regard to what is going on in the employees' lives. For example, in the most recent layoffs there were at least two people who were treating there for cancer, and now they must find new care providers because their insurance has been dropped. There have already been three layoffs this year with more to come. I expect the facility to be shut down by the end of the year.
No opportunity for advancement; bad treatment of employees
Medical Scribe (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – June 21, 2016
Great place to work. They are very patient-focused and everyone is warm and inviting. I only work part-time so I don't have as much to say but I like working there and would seek out full-time employment.
Great benefits but company seems to be going downhill
Cashier (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – June 14, 2016
Excellent insurance. But year by year, company seems to go downhill. Slowly taking benefits away, laying people off every couple of months. Work isn't enjoyable there for me anymore. I'm always scared of losing my job. Management is intense. I never even see my manager. They say they care about their employees but it is crystal clear that they do not. They also used to have a great Bonus every year but of course that's being taken away too. All these great incentives are slowly slipping away.
Constanly laying people off, expect you to do 2-3 jobs and not get compensated
CTCA is an awesome place to work, and has one of the best atmospheres I have never worked in.

Cashier/ Hostess (Current Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – June 7, 2016
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is such a wonderful place to work for and the family environment is one of the best qualities of CTCA. The relationships you build with patients, caregivers, and the stakeholders is incomparable.
