    I have been working at Amen Clinics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amen Clinics is an innovative organization with the mission of improving the brain health of the patient's life they touch. There is a new management team on board that is making great progress with the overall culture and progress in creating organizational excellence.

    Cons

    It is an entrepreneurial organization which has its pros and cons. Great ideas and nimbleness to effect change but possibly not always the right changes. Some familial participation which is not optimal

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize and stay the course. Don't let the unlimited ideas throw the organization off course. It is doing amazing work in so many areas and helping people.

    I worked at Amen Clinics as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not many. If you have a good supervisor or others to act as a go-between you and higher ups, this helps.

    Cons

    Many high level people treat staff and others as disposable commodities. There is a lot of talk about getting creative people on-board who are welcome to contribute and yet these people are hamstrung by those who feel they can do everything better & know everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try the carrot and not the stick or riding crop.

    I worked at Amen Clinics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    none really. Besides the few gems you might get a chance to work with, it MAY be a good stepping stone and addition to your resume if they don't talk negative about you to your potential new employers that call, which i witnessed happen on several occasions to great employees

    Cons

    Pay is terrible and good luck getting a raise you deserve, extremely disorganized, catty behavior, fat shaming environment, high turn around, family and friend favoritism, biased HR, cheap everything, greedy and egotistical ceo that treats all employees like garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I never saw any executives that were not family or friends stay for longer than a year. Amen (i refuse to call him a doctor) hires executive consultants on year contracts them but doesn't listen to the professional criticism, he is truly a tyrant with little man syndrome.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great facility, management is improving! Dr. Amen is starting to hire the right talent in the right places.

    Cons

    Pay structure could use a boost for all levels and vacation structure could use a revamp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees. They are the ones who interact with the patients on a daily basis - they have great ideas on how to improve processes!

    I worked at Amen Clinics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The brain health category is interesting. There is definitely plenty of content to help with your job. The work-horse employees are dedicated to doing a good job.

    Cons

    Management is extremely poor from the top down. Poor CEO, Poor Clinic GM, inconsistent operational issues. Equipment is outdated; processes are inconsistent from clinic to clinic. No budgets to do any marketing to promote the product and generate leads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let Dr. Amen be a Doctor only. He has no business running the company. Hire people who are qualified for management positions for which they were hired.

    Pros

    Great people who are all trying to work together to help drive the business forward. There is a sense of "we're fighting this uphill battle together" that binds the employees together. Some doctors and other staff that truly care.

    Cons

    Dr. Amen micromanages the entire company from everything to IT to marketing, to fulfillment, to design. Does no vetting when hiring new people often in the form of unqualified and overpaid consultants that do little to nothing to move the business forward other than offer their two cents. Sadly this then puts even more strain on the extremely limited internal resources all of which are tasked with outrageous goals Dr. Amen pulls out of thin air instead of basing it on data and setting achieveable benchmarks and recognizing success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't matter because Dr. Amen is not going to change his mind or listen because his pride won't allow him to.

    I worked at Amen Clinics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mission and commitment to brain health

    Cons

    Outside of physicians, there were very few men in the work place. As a women, I found there was catty behavior and jealousy. These behaviors overshadowed the great work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a few more men in clinical or admin roles.
