    For every action there is an equal & opposite reaction; former AMG-Park, Ridge Employee.

    Patient Representative (Former Employee)
    Park Ridge, IL

    Pros-I truly enjoyed interacting with the patients.
    -The nursing & administrative staff worked well together.
    -Open Communication between staff was encouraged & practiced.
    -For a busy practice, operations flowed rather smoothly.
    -Kind nursing & administrative staff.

    Cons-Unfortunately, management was/is quite lax in this facility.
    -Associates who have worked for AMG for many years are viewed as "easily replaced," and not offered the recognition that they deserved.
    -Management often refused to provide nursing & administrative staff with the proper tools in order to complete one's task effectively.
    -Management instilled fear as a means of discouraging staff from speaking up.
    -Emphasis is placed on patient satisfaction; yet the tools needed to achieve those results are not provided.
    -Employee morale is low & positive reinforcement is not provided.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt times, those who have managed for many years have plateaued & are "set in their ways." It is crucial that continuing education is provided for management & that it is implemented within the organization. Managers need direction and creating an environment of fear will not improve the staffs performance or patient satisfaction.

    A character building life experience.

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Park Ridge, IL

    ProsI love working with children, and I have the greatest co-workers ever!!

    ConsWe are often short staffed due to turn-over, people dropping to part-time. It takes forever to replace lost staff which is frustrationg.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back better bonuses.. We need better nurse to patient ratios. Stop raising the cost of benefits, it makes it so getting a raise only paise for the increased amount your paying for your healthcare, you feel like you aren't ever getting ahead.

    You are only a number.

    Medical Assistant (Current Employee)
    Park Ridge, IL

    ProsAmazing benefits, helping people, some amazing doctors! Love most of the doctors! Part time employment would make this company bearable.

    ConsTraveling offsite, satellite locations are not fully established before sending practices to them. Spoken to 4 different supervisors for over a year in regards to associates not completing work or covering lunches. If I do not walk away from my clinic, unattended I will sometimes not have a lunch break longer than 20 minutes. No proper coverage to clock out on time. Supervisors do not offer properly educated staff to cover other staff when they are out. Company expands but they do not have the proper staff before adding physicians.

    Advice to Senior Managementit is your responsibility to manage, instead of constantly accusing associates of not communicating properly. Favoritism for employees with seniority, even with documentation and witnesses. Learn to give families time off for emergencies or family death without hesitation, especially when they could offer documentation to validate the circumstance. Then you will avoid the extreme turn over.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A solid large company to work for

    Fundraising (Former Employee)
    Park Ridge, IL

    ProsCompensation is competitive in Chicago.
    Senior leadership, for the most part, invests in associates.
    Training is outstanding, both clinically and in leadership/professional skills.
    Promotes from within.
    Company does a good job of implementing its "MVP" (core values).

    ConsHealthcare market in general is in constant flux.
    Work/life balance can be very dependent on your supervisor. Some of those "rules" can be inconsistently applied.
    Mission between each hospital can be inconsistent.

    Good company to work for

    Staff Nurse (Current Employee)
    Park Ridge, IL

    ProsGrowing healthcare company, aquiring new hospitals. Management tends to have good vision and leadership. Good benefits and paid time off.

    ConsVery large organization. Sometime change tends to lag when changes are needed. Very conservative organization. HR takes a long time to hire.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement very overwhelmed with many hats to wear - sometimes over looks good employees for advancement. Employees do leave to advance in there career but I guess thats health care.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
