    Pros

    good hourly pay, good health insurance options, liked colleagues, flexible schedule, good training

    Cons

    Not always able to work as many hours as I'd like, part-time health insurance options didn't start until I'd been there a year, some upper-level management was difficult to work with

    Pros

    Great co workers, free lunch and coffee.

    Cons

    This job eats away at your brain. You sit there, repeating the same lines over and over until you can't remember what the truth is anymore. The skills you develop here have no value at any other job, and there is no room for advancement for 99% of the people.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a day a year as an SP.

    Pros

    The behavior, demeanor and respect of most coworkers are conducive to good friendships and make up for some of the not so positive aspects of the work environment. Excellent benefits and salary is comparable to the average for at least my position.

    Cons

    Management runs unchecked and perform obvious favoritism. Repeated complaints about the behavior and demeanor of these favorite employees fall in deaf ears. Management does not care or attempt to cultivate other employees into leadership positions other than the selected few. Blatant misconduct is condone for the selected few and there is no trust towards management.

    Advice to Management

    There is a desperate need for upward review, Some of the management should not hold their current position but this will never make the light of day because there is no way for upper management to know. What ever metrics are being used to measure the performance of current managers is incomplete in my opinion. Take an anonymous survey from non-management employees by department and see what is going on.

    Pros

    The company has good benefits...

    Cons

    There is no real room for advancement, management needs leadership classes. There is not much leadership that take place. Everybody knows everybody business, especially if you ever had to go to HR for anything. Its very close knitted in a bad way.

    Advice to Management

    Fie Management that are not capable of leading. Start looking to the employees for answers, they will be able to shed light on what is going wrong, versus go to management. Promote within, people that are qualified not just people that are favored.

    Pros

    Excellent co workers that treat you like family and amazing morale as soon as you walk in the door. Good friends to be made guaranteed and you will never leave work feeling anything short of happy after hugging your colleagues on the way out. And as if that wasn't enough, they threw phenomenal employee parties and continuous training sessions throughout my career there...(a day in the life of a medical student examine etc....) Unlike other places I've worked I can honestly say the staff at ECFMG Atlanta truly cared for each and every one of their employees like we were one of their own. I hated I had to leave this position but had to due to a move to Charleston, SC.

    Cons

    Not enough locations throughout the country (to work at :(). Also, while working as a standardized patient for four years at this location, playing the same case (Laura Richards) it eventually became tough working with some student doctor examinees taking the exam due to language barriers, the duration of the physical exams, or just the intensity of the physical exam, altogether. After 12 standardized exams per shift, it became difficult recalling the checklist information, but that was my own challenge at hand :)

    Advice to Management

    I love you all and miss you so much...I really hope you're all well and taking care of eachother just like you always have. Thank you for being a terrific example on how we should all treat eachother with respect and dignity while treating others the same way. XO
