Pros: not much anymore, perhaps some dress down days
Cons: lack of pay, advancement, poor management structure, overall feeling of apathy
This company was once the pinnacle of the industry, when Medicare unknowingly compensated for overpriced wheelchairs, the money rolled in year after year. The poorly operated company was still able to flourish with free money flowing in. Times were still good for all employees as incompetent management and poor leadership were shrouded by high profit margins from a nearly bottomless source. Now with significant changes in Medicare, the government realized exactly what they were dishing out thousands of dollars for and quickly turned the faucet off. Now with government assistance turned off, the true ugly soul of Pride Mobility is exposed. Mid and upper level management have absolutely no idea of how to run a business. Every day is a political struggle fueled by hopeless promises made in meeting after meeting, not once thinking about the future and how to better it, but rather how to bus-pass the next manager and their "team". The person in charge portrays an image of apathy, as if the fight is over and he would rather be running in the next marathon or cycle race; and this mindset flows downward throughout all levels. A sinking feeling, going to work now knowing if today is the day I get laid off; like so many former employees in the past year and a half. A sinking feeling indeed, sinking like the entire company. You don't want to work here, you don't want to work in Northeast Pennsylvania. The entire area is like an old photograph, once beautiful but now an worn out image of itself. Everyone is leaving this area, the ones staying are not the people you want to work or be friends with.
