Dan is not a thief. He is working for Joe Capper, former CEO of CCS Medical. Joe would not hire him if he was.

Grumble Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

alot of tenured employees are leaving CCS, they just postponed the reviews for this year till july, cut the 401K match in half and are planning on moving the corporate office to Texas because that is where the new CEO lives, they pick winners and loser if they want you out they will manufacter evidence to support that end and if they want to promote you
they will break their own rules to make it happen for those they want to promote. Morale is at an all time low, the revenue is flat so the writing is on the wall.

They will keep the sheep the mindless ones who question nothing and just do as they are told. Business as usual. The go getters, those who actually work, go above and beyond will either quit or be pestered into quitting or fired for trumped up manufactured lies. Your better off not going to Dallas.

Paranoid Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

Well, everyone in the IT Dept got 60 Day Notice letters last week. Looks like all Corporate Services are being moved to Dallas,TX. Wonder what the plans are for the rest of us still holding on. Been looking for something else but nothing really out there it seems except the same ole crap at another company. Guess I will stick it out around here and see what happens...

IT is just the beginning; soon as the new CIO implememnts the necessary changes
to make efficiencies in the systems they will not need as many employees in certain departments. Best to keep your eyes open to what is going on and be searching for another job at the same time.

Look around you CCS employees. When Management starts leaving, its time to jump ship. If you wait until the end, you will have nothing. There are no severence packages for line level employees and supervisors. The jobs are going to Dallas or India. You are being used right now to keep the place running until the ax comes down. Look for something now because you are worth more while working than unemployed.

The handwriting is on the wall, READ IT!

Arms Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

There are a lot of changes at CCS Medical but every company changes- nothing stays the same. Personally, I am not in hr, sales or management but I really like my job at CCS Medical and I don't see the entire company shutting down and moving to Texas even though headquarters may relocate. I perceive that the leadership structure is changing for the better and I am one of many who wants the company to succeed. There are a lot of talented individuals that truly care about the patients whom we serve; we come to work everyday choosing to make a difference albeit in a small way. If you are considering becoming a part of our team do so for the right reasons. Naysayers and people who are just out for themselves need not apply. But if you want to be a visionary for change and be a positive force that encourages growth and makes a difference- come on! We need more team players like you.

One sign of better economic times is when more people start finding jobs. Another is when they feel confident enough to quit them.

More people quit their jobs in the past three months than were laid off — a sharp reversal after 15 straight months in which layoffs exceeded voluntary departures, suggesting the job market is finally thawing.

Some of the quitters are leaving for new jobs. Others have no firm offers. But their newfound confidence about landing work is itself evidence of more hiring and a strengthening economy.

"There is a century's worth of evidence that bears out this view that quits rise and layoffs fall as the job market improves," said Steven Davis, an economist at the University of Chicago.

Still, the number of people quitting their jobs is nowhere near what it was before the recession. Economists expect the improvement in the job market to be fitful, rather than consistent. In May, for example, private employers added only 41,000 net jobs after adding 218,000 in April.

Yet the long term trend points to an improving job market. The economy has created a net 982,000 jobs this year after a recession that wiped out more than 8 million of them.

The government said Tuesday that the number of people quitting rose in April to nearly 2 million. That was the most in more than a year and an increase of nearly 12% since January. That compares with 1.75 million people who were laid off in April, the fewest since January 2007, before the recession.

During the depths of the recession, workers were hesitant to quit — and not only because jobs were scarce. Even if they found a new job, some feared that accepting it would leave them vulnerable to a layoff. At many companies, layoffs follow a simple formula: last hired, first fired.

Many clung to their jobs out of fear, said David Adams, vice president of training at Adecco, a national staffing agency. When Adecco tried to recruit workers to fill open positions, it frequently ran into the same obstacle:few workers felt like betting on a new job that might soon disappear.

Not so much any more. Adecco is seeing more employed workers seeking interviews, rather than laid off workers searching for a lifeline.

"The hangover is kind of over," Adams said. "It's really starting to move toward a market where the employee can have a lot more confidence making a move."

That's why Katie Charland just quit her job at a parenting magazine in Phoenix to take a position with a nonprofit that supplies children's educational programs.

Charland, 27, says the position is a dream job. Still, it carries a cost: she's abandoning seniority at her old job. But she thinks the economy is expanding enough that her company will be able to attract state and corporate funding.

"I don't see leaving my current job to pursue this as a risk," Charland says. "I do feel like the economy is getting better, and there's more opportunity out there."

Such optimism was rare in 2008 and 2009, when employers cut more than 8 million jobs, sending the unemployment rate to a 26-year high of 10.1%. The number of people who quit fell 40% to 1.72 million in September 2009. That was the fewest since the government began tracking the data in 2000. It was down from nearly 2.9 million in December 2007, when the recession began.

Studies have shown that worker morale fell during the recession. Productivity rose as companies squeezed more work out of their employees. Overworked employees may leave their jobs at first chance.

"There is going to be a mass exodus of the top performers as the economy starts to turn around," says Razor Suleman, a consultant who helps companies retain their best workers.

About 25% of companies' top performers said they plan to leave their current job within a year, according to a survey published in the May edition of the Harvard Business Review. By contrast, in 2006, just 10% planned to leave their jobs within a year. The survey questioned 20,000 workers who were identified by their employers as "high potential."

Companies retained those workers during the recession but heaped more work on them, said Jean Martin, the study's co-author and executive director of the Corporate Executive Board's Corporate Leadership Council in Washington. At the same time, employers cut back on awards and bonuses, she said.

Now, top performers at some companies are heading for the exits as hiring picks up. It means companies will feel more pressure to retain them.

"These rising stars know what they're worth," Martin said. "They feel somewhat neglected."

Phil Edelstein can attest to that. He spent two years on his first job at an advertising agency gaining more responsibility but no pay raises.

Edelstein, 25, worked for an agency in Philadelphia that was stretching its budget as clients cut back their spending. After researching clients' brand names and marketing strategies, he moved on to directing study projects.

Bosses kept promising a pay raise commensurate with his workload. It never came.

"There's this intense frustration that comes with that, because you basically feel like you have no control over how much money you're making and how much work you do," he said.

Edelstein hung tight through 2009 as the economy shed jobs. But this year he began sending out resumes to other ad agencies. Then a prospective client called. The CEO of a Colorado-based tea maker needed a marketing director. Edelstein didn't need long to say yes.

"It felt good, because I was initiating the change," he said.

More people are now taking a leap that few dared just a few months ago: quitting without a new job waiting. The improving economy has given employees confidence to quit without having another job waiting.

Robert Dixon is among them. He was consulting with companies doing business in China, helping them establish supply chains with factories there. But he tired of spending weeks at a time away from his wife in Massachusetts. So in May he quit — without a backup plan.

"Somebody the other day said to me I was the first person they'd met who quit a good-paying job without another one to go to," Dixon said. "I know there are other companies out there. I just need to find them."

What kind of brainwashing is this? Not even Dan could come up with this bullshit. We are suffering, morale is at all time low. No one trust the leadership at this point in time. We are losing people every day, how is that good? I for one, will leave next week. Not because I don't want to ride this to the end but because I am tire of the hypocrisy within my department. I am going to a new job, and yes things for some people might be better than for other. I just can't take the laying of Beat, Steve and HR in general. Good luck to those staying in this shit hole

Worried Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

Employees Are Still Your Biggest Asset

Today's economic downturn (okay crisis of typhoon like proportions) is not a time to take your employees for granted. Leaders have to remember that an attitude of "appreciate you even have a job" is not acceptable, if they want their organization to survive this downturn. Talent, true talent, will find other opportunities, even in these desperate times. Leaders cannot risk the additional burden that can be put on their organization from turnover, or lower productivity, resulting from poor morale. Your people are still you biggest asset and need to be treated like it. Failing to do so will result in a ripple effect that can cripple, or crush, even a relatively healthy organization.
Unfortunately, some leaders feel in these times people are expendable assets, which can be quickly replaced. Wrong. In these times your core, star, staff need to be held onto tightly. If you lose them you're in more trouble than you may think. Skilled labor may be out looking for a job right now, but you are really going to be taking a gamble bringing on new staff. Many of the people looking for employment right now may or may not be quality candidates. Your gamble is getting quality over average or worse yet, horrible. Many organizations shed their dead weight first and hold tight until the very last moment their best. That is not to say that all the people out looking for jobs right now are second or third choices, no, there is great talent out there right now, but finding and selecting the talent from the mediocre is not an easy chore and recruitment is never free.
In these times, when profit is scarce and big losses are common, your people and their morale can be the deciding factor between success and failure. It is up to leaders to take charge and inspire their people. Taking them for granted will only result in more job losses, losses that includes leadership when the organization tanks. Your quality employees are not lucky to have a job, you are lucky they have a job working for you-do not mess it up by forgetting their worth.

Worried Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

I hope you are paying attention. I use to work there.

At almost every one of the 51 companies investigated, we were able to interview people who could give us firsthand accounts of what happened. In all we conducted 197 interviews of CEOs, former CEOs, other top executives, and midlevel managers.

We discovered that precipitous business failures are caused by four destructive patterns of behavior that set in, without anyone noticing them, well before a business goes under:

Flawed executive mind-sets that throw off a company's perception of reality
Delusional attitudes that keep this inaccurate picture of reality in place
Breakdowns in communication systems that were developed to handle potentially urgent information
Leadership qualities that keep a company's executives from correcting their course
Long before obvious danger signs appear, several of these syndromes can take hold of executive behavior. People might continue to do business the way they always have, maybe even doing it extremely well. But when a problem develops and things stop working the way they did before, managers have no way of knowing because they are largely cut off from the outside information they need.

What makes these businesses so deceptive is that they are usually happy. They are so good at shutting out unwelcome information. Rather than react and adjust to problems when they occur, leaders adopt the delusion that theirs is a dream company. The mechanism makes a business consist of company policies and company attitudes that are ultimately mind numbing, a cumulative effect of many small and seemingly benign policies that are ultimately destructive.

Question Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

Well, another sad day at CCS on Friday. A number of people laid off or terminated. It's just the beginning.... I wish everyone good luck whether they stay or leave. Hopefully those who stay will not regret it. Everything is so uncertain and scary right now and the rumors do not help. I was one of the lucky ones who found a job within a couple of months, so there is hope for you that are looking.

Managers having affairs with Team Leads & employees, yep you will soon find out it is not just gossip. What makes you think you are different from the rest of the team? I have seen many good people be let go because they were actually much smarter than the managers & supervisors. I've been gone for almost 2yrs. now & am finally getting my sanity back & confidence back from all the degrading things that happen there to myself & others. Trust no one as far as management goes unless you are one of the asskissers. Come back & let us know how happy you are once you worked there for a while

I am in the interview process for a Point-of-Care Liaison position. The position is based on an hourly rate, with the opportunity for commissions. I would be working in a 9 practice physician office with the expectation to earn 50 points every month of sign ups (around 25 patients). I was told by the manager that a sister office has the same position and is earning around 65-70 points a month with only one provider. I want to make sure the sales expectations are reasonable. The position would entail getting patients in the office to sign up with CCS, demo-ing the equipment, teaching the patients how to use the equipment, and handling all the paperwork.

The hours, pay rate, and the ability to work independently are very appealing to me. I have been doing some research, and while there are many bad reviews from sales reps, I am not finding many reviews for this kind of position (which is not commission based).

I have had two phone interviews. I have one more tomorrow with the regional sales executive, and then will continue with the process to meet the actual office staff at the doctor's office in which I would be working.

Any thoughts?

Yes, run as fast as you can, unless you like to be belittled, made an example of, lied about, have managers laugh at the employees to try to make you look stupid, look for ways to intimidate you, write you up, give you ridiculous unobtainable goals so they can fire you if you don't kiss their butts, I am a former employee & everything you have read negatively here is the absolute truth.

Another round of layoffs coming down the pipe. Those that choose to believe that those who are paid more than you (I can't call them management, because they aren't managing a whole lot right now and I certainly can't call them leadership....money and a title doesn't make you that) are sorely disillusioned.

Maybe you are one of the ones who think that nothing is going on between Nestor (a team lead) and Danielle (a married manager) and their Director Bill who covers it all up (and there are a few other departments like that)...if you believe people who have selfishly damaged departments and follow "leaders" like them, I could see how you would easily believe that your job at CCS is safe.

Or maybe you love working with outstanding and morally upright people like John Previte, who does nothing but send out emails with pictures of dogs in them and try to feel up on female coworkers (and continues to do so after reprimanded by HR). I could see how you'd like to continue to work with that.

Maybe you've been there for so long, you've allowed your "supervisor" or "manager" to keep you from growing and honing your skills, leaving you in a position that is a dead end, under paid position and you can't go anywhere else because your professional growth has been so grossly stunted.

It's unfortunate that a company that had so much potential and was in a position to help so many people who really needed a quality service is being run down by those who can't see past the end of their brown noses and greedy asses. Do what you need to do for yourself and your family. That company sure won't. Silly Sheep.

Managers having affairs with Team Leads & employees, yep you will soon find out it is not just gossip. What makes you think you are different from the rest of the team? I have seen many good people be let go because they were actually much smarter than the managers & supervisors. I've been gone for almost 2yrs. now & am finally getting my sanity back & confidence back from all the degrading things that happen there to myself & others. Trust no one as far as management goes unless you are one of the asskissers. Come back & let us know how happy you are once you worked there for a while
I was recently laidoff. I head their our more coming. And if not they are looking to push peopke out. Especially on there intry team. It's sad that a team lead has that much power, but its because the supervisors or managers dont wanna look bad.

I can't help but notice that the majority of the people that have posted on this thread lately are people in the CCS corporate offices - basically "admin" people that process referrals. For the most part, they are trimming the fat in corporate to speed up the referral process. Yes, it sucks that people are loosing their jobs. But you do realize that you aren't the "feet on the street" sales reps that are out generating the referrals.

For the person interviewing for the POC rep - that should be a really interesting position. I don't have one in my territory, but I'd love to have one! There is good income potential, and the office is a qualified office if they've agreed to have you there. Good luck.

Yes, there are a lot of changes at CCS Medical. And a lot of these changes really suck. But overall, it's no better out there for sales than it is in Pharma right now, and at least sales is safe (for now).

I believe they are speaking of Danielle in Pharmacy.

I was one of those laid off at the end of September. While I do not harbor bad feelings towards CCS, it was very unsettling the way the layoffs took place. It was a surprise and I had no idea it was coming. Like every company, there are good and bad people. Some people advance the bad way, some the good way. You're going to see this everywhere you go. I felt fortunate at CCS, but it took me a long time to get where I was. I did things the right way and am proud of my time at CCS.

When I say that I had no idea the layoff was coming, that is not entirely true. I had already been preparing myself for the possibility (because of the corporate move). I believe everyone in the Clearwater office needs to be looking for a new job. It just makes sense--- if CCS has gotten tax breaks for moving corporate, why on earth wouldn't they move Operations there eventually? Also consider this... Highland also owns American HomePatient. The chairman of the board for Amercian HomePatient is also the chairman of the board of CCS. While this may not be all that unusual, it's something to think about. American HomePatient is headquartered in Tenn, but has offices about 10 minutes outside Dallas. They also recently expanded their Respiratory division. I wonder if CCS sold their Respiratory to American HomePatient?

I am also sad to see what has become of CCS. When I first started working there it did not feel like a regular call center and I felt good about what we did. I remember Nancy Howard stressing how much some of these patients needed our service and how we were sometimes the only ones our patients spoke too. Wow.. how different is it now with scripting and time cutoffs on the phone (half of which is trying to upsell). I also felt like upper management did care about the employees. While they were not always my favorites, they knew my name! Steve Brown was awesome and used to make those stern memos something fun. Like driving too fast through the parking lot! The excuse to the change in services and treatment of employees seems to be that this kind of service is not possible when a company has grown like CCS has. I ask.. well, why do you think CCS grew as it did? Unfortunately CCS no longer offers anything the other DME companies don't. Might as well go to the "other" one!

Arms Re: CCS Medical from Pharma?

I don’t know about this Danielle person, I have heard stories about her but never met her I think. I am no longer at ccs but while there I did notice how some people, especially the IT folks were driven by that tyrant Dan and Beat. They “IT” were good people; they always went out of their way to help out, especially in Finance. We never got a no answer from people like Larry Molter, Boyd and Cory. It was always nice to deal with Cory..Dan and Beat crush their drive to do better, I was glad to hear that Dan was being push out.
I just can understand why a company with so much potential has crashed so badly. In finance, we knew some of the things that were going on like Fran hiding huge bills for items that were never purchase, even more surprising, the time the issues with Fran was brought to upper management, no one did anything. The miss management of money, people is what did that company in. I am glad that I left before all the changes started to happen.

Yeah, I'm sure you have heard stories about her lol. And yes, I was referring to the Danielle in pharmacy. CCS will be fine, just not at any location other than Dallas. It's refreshing to be gone and working for a company that cares about it's patients/clients AND employees.

Was curious who the Director of Sales was that was fired. There was a post that said this person was fired. The post date was 9 of 2011 and starts off, "Another one bites the dust." I worked there many years ago and had a very bad experience. The job I was hired for was not what I interviewed for. Thanks...

Secondly, lets also clear up that AEs are not the end all, be all of that company.

CCS has a piss poor sales structure and training, never wanting to push anyone, including AEs to their fullest potential. There is a lot wrong with that company right now, and your group is not excluded. If you were business savvy, you would see that the real issue is NOT that CCS is going under, they aren't. They are like a cockroach, you can cut the head off but that nasty thing still runs around. The real issue is that while they have a business to run (and I can respect that) they are shady and misleading about it. They are destroying their faithful employees (and no, not just admin....wake up and look at the much higher ups that have had the rug jerked out from under them) by lying and misleading. Not sure about you, but I have no interest in working for a company that has that much disregard for their employees and really, their patients, which in the end, isn't that what we are here for anyway? Perspective people.

One sign of better economic times is when more people start finding jobs. Another is when they feel confident enough to quit them.

More people quit their jobs in the past three months than were laid off — a sharp reversal after 15 straight months in which layoffs exceeded voluntary departures, suggesting the job market is finally thawing.

Some of the quitters are leaving for new jobs. Others have no firm offers. But their newfound confidence about landing work is itself evidence of more hiring and a strengthening economy.

"There is a century's worth of evidence that bears out this view that quits rise and layoffs fall as the job market improves," said Steven Davis, an economist at the University of Chicago.

Still, the number of people quitting their jobs is nowhere near what it was before the recession. Economists expect the improvement in the job market to be fitful, rather than consistent. In May, for example, private employers added only 41,000 net jobs after adding 218,000 in April.

Yet the long term trend points to an improving job market. The economy has created a net 982,000 jobs this year after a recession that wiped out more than 8 million of them.

The government said Tuesday that the number of people quitting rose in April to nearly 2 million. That was the most in more than a year and an increase of nearly 12% since January. That compares with 1.75 million people who were laid off in April, the fewest since January 2007, before the recession.

During the depths of the recession, workers were hesitant to quit — and not only because jobs were scarce. Even if they found a new job, some feared that accepting it would leave them vulnerable to a layoff. At many companies, layoffs follow a simple formula: last hired, first fired.

Many clung to their jobs out of fear, said David Adams, vice president of training at Adecco, a national staffing agency. When Adecco tried to recruit workers to fill open positions, it frequently ran into the same obstacle:few workers felt like betting on a new job that might soon disappear.

Not so much any more. Adecco is seeing more employed workers seeking interviews, rather than laid off workers searching for a lifeline.

"The hangover is kind of over," Adams said. "It's really starting to move toward a market where the employee can have a lot more confidence making a move."

That's why Katie Charland just quit her job at a parenting magazine in Phoenix to take a position with a nonprofit that supplies children's educational programs.

Charland, 27, says the position is a dream job. Still, it carries a cost: she's abandoning seniority at her old job. But she thinks the economy is expanding enough that her company will be able to attract state and corporate funding.

"I don't see leaving my current job to pursue this as a risk," Charland says. "I do feel like the economy is getting better, and there's more opportunity out there."

Such optimism was rare in 2008 and 2009, when employers cut more than 8 million jobs, sending the unemployment rate to a 26-year high of 10.1%. The number of people who quit fell 40% to 1.72 million in September 2009. That was the fewest since the government began tracking the data in 2000. It was down from nearly 2.9 million in December 2007, when the recession began.

Studies have shown that worker morale fell during the recession. Productivity rose as companies squeezed more work out of their employees. Overworked employees may leave their jobs at first chance.

"There is going to be a mass exodus of the top performers as the economy starts to turn around," says Razor Suleman, a consultant who helps companies retain their best workers.

About 25% of companies' top performers said they plan to leave their current job within a year, according to a survey published in the May edition of the Harvard Business Review. By contrast, in 2006, just 10% planned to leave their jobs within a year. The survey questioned 20,000 workers who were identified by their employers as "high potential."

Companies retained those workers during the recession but heaped more work on them, said Jean Martin, the study's co-author and executive director of the Corporate Executive Board's Corporate Leadership Council in Washington. At the same time, employers cut back on awards and bonuses, she said.

Now, top performers at some companies are heading for the exits as hiring picks up. It means companies will feel more pressure to retain them.

"These rising stars know what they're worth," Martin said. "They feel somewhat neglected."

Phil Edelstein can attest to that. He spent two years on his first job at an advertising agency gaining more responsibility but no pay raises.

Edelstein, 25, worked for an agency in Philadelphia that was stretching its budget as clients cut back their spending. After researching clients' brand names and marketing strategies, he moved on to directing study projects.

Bosses kept promising a pay raise commensurate with his workload. It never came.

"There's this intense frustration that comes with that, because you basically feel like you have no control over how much money you're making and how much work you do," he said.

Edelstein hung tight through 2009 as the economy shed jobs. But this year he began sending out resumes to other ad agencies. Then a prospective client called. The CEO of a Colorado-based tea maker needed a marketing director. Edelstein didn't need long to say yes.

"It felt good, because I was initiating the change," he said.

More people are now taking a leap that few dared just a few months ago: quitting without a new job waiting. The improving economy has given employees confidence to quit without having another job waiting.

Robert Dixon is among them. He was consulting with companies doing business in China, helping them establish supply chains with factories there. But he tired of spending weeks at a time away from his wife in Massachusetts. So in May he quit — without a backup plan.

"Somebody the other day said to me I was the first person they'd met who quit a good-paying job without another one to go to," Dixon said. "I know there are other companies out there. I just need to find them."
??? think you may have the wrong forum.....

Could not agree more worked inside NCE before massive Exodus - The problem with the AE's is that most of them do not work anymore becuase the gas is not covered and at least half of them are out looking for jobs while they are supposed to be sending in customers.
