    I worked at Emergency Medicine Physicians full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, decent shift load.

    Cons

    Top heavy organization with the leadership (who often work few to no clinical shifts) extracting a lot of the money that should be going to the docs in the ED's. Though you are called a partner, you are actually just a worker bee, unless you are a favorite of someone. I have worked as an independent contractor, and as an employee, and have never been so dissatisfied with my pay or working conditions until I worked as a "partner" at EMP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin out the upper level dead wood. Listen a little to the docs at the sites. If you no longer work clinical shifts you are out of touch regardless of what you think.

  2. I worked at Emergency Medicine Physicians full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good training, fairly generous 401k program.

    Cons

    You only get the gainshare (bonus) if you meet quality and quantity standards not as easy as it sounds. Also you only get bonus if the company profits so no guarantees. High stress low pay. Attendance policy is also stressfull essentially if you call off for any reason at all your bonus is less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little kindness goes a long way.

    I have been working at Emergency Medicine Physicians part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    10 hours shifts. Can submit schedule. Benefits are OK. CME allowance. Online access.

    Cons

    Well..
    1. Poor compensation. Low ball offers for experienced EM docs. Below market wage
    2. PIT process: Physician in Triage. This person puts in orders on undocumented exam of the patient as sgins in as Dr. XX and turfs the care off to the core doc. Can work if the right person is there. Otherwise you end with management of many patients including your own. Soley done for the door to doc metric which the admin beans counters love.
    3. Get a bad Press score and you get dinged in the pocket you lose $$$ because the pill head give you a bad review for not enough percs. So why suffer for this???
    4. Misuse of mid level providers. Wants you to baby sit them for the 15% and uses lame excuses to validate this redundancy.
    5. To many supervisors with little experience in the trenches running the day to day operations at the sites. 5 year out does not make you a leader.
    6. Spends tons of $$$ on BS things like mouse pads and crap that could go to doc salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat docs with respect. Pay them a fair wage. And trim the fat of supers.

    I worked at Emergency Medicine Physicians full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good benefits (401K, health, disability etc)
    - Not much else

    Cons

    This company claims to be "democratic" and have all physicians as "owners" but in reality it is run by about a dozen people at the top who have been there for 20 years. They provide management services to each individual contract and skim about 42% off the top. They are making millions of dollars, while paying all of the "owner" doctors a pittance. They hire grads fresh out of residency, grind them down, and then intimidate them into quitting, so they can hire more new grads who are too naive to see what's going on.

    If you bring up any complaints, concerns, or questions about how the company is run, and why physicians are paid below market pay, you are ignored, intimidated, or threatened with termination

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency and openness. Pay doctors closer to market rate. Stop getting contracts in places that no one would move to (West Virginia anyone?). Stop intimidating doctors who ask questions. Admit to all physicians that they are disposable employees of the company rather than "owners". Simply put, be honest with physicians and pay them decently.

    Pros

    Great bonuses/gain share/retirement. Great work life balance, very few people work excessive hours even at the top.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to move up, much of the work is repetative, decisions are left to the very few at the top

    I worked at Emergency Medicine Physicians

    Pros

    *low turnover
    *friendly, comfortable atmosphere among other fellow employees (not supervisors)
    *great location (in the middle of Belden Village area)
    *nice benefits
    *employees receive feedback instantly
    *large growth over the last ten years
    *continued training
    *great bonus paychecks earned quarterly

    Cons

    *poor communication between upper management and employees
    *employee favoritism
    *most supervisors make it difficult for a successful employee/supervisor relationship
    *lacks empathy toward individuals with disabilities
    *promotions not based on merit- based on WHO you know, not WHAT you know
    *company growing too big, too fast
    *very high gossip traffic
    *hides flaws within the system- don't expect to be taken seriously if you have a complaint

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management were to actually read this, it is my hope that they would want to make EMP a better place for their employees. They can begin by attempting to fix everything they can on the con list.

  8. I felt as if I was disrespected on a local level but the corporate office was excellent if I had any HR problems.

    I worked at Emergency Medicine Physicians

    Pros

    The salary and benefits were exceptional

    Cons

    Training was deplorable and felt like nothing was done to fix it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are taking on a new program, do your research and feel that employees are welcome. It is one thing to say you have an 'open door' policy and another to actually have one.

    I have been working at Emergency Medicine Physicians

    Pros

    Benefits are outstanding
    Direct incentive program offers opportunity to make good money if you ignore quality standards and don't get caught
    They offer a few perks now & then

    Cons

    The only real concern of management is the bottom line
    Incompetent supervisors with poor people skills
    Bizarre and unreasonable attendance policy, with no allowance for illness, means you lose substantial pay if you get sick. Full latitude given to manager to approve or deny time off, and many play favorites
    Company policies are not applied fairly and impartially to all employees
    Little opportunity for advancement unless you have a friendship with one of the decision makers - hiring decisions certainly affected more by who you know than by what you know
    Any questions about management decisions or expressing of concerns tends to lead to subtle and/or direct negative from supervisors and management, including but not limited to negative scores on employee reviews, being given less lucrative workload, being singled out for mistreatment by supervisor, and even occasionally being threatened
    They outsource jobs despite the fact that they were already posting record profits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take employee feedback seriously when it is negative, instead of choosing to only pat yourselves on the back when feedback is positive
    See the Cons list? That would be a good place to start
