Pros

Great benefits and in some hospitals excellent teams

Cons

Drama and goals that are near impossible to meet

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a practice manager actually be able to manage not be the extra hand for every role and then get upset that the management duties aren't completed. Give a manager a place to work not trying to get things done while standing in treatment

    Pros

    Since MARS acquisition the culture has changed to be more open. There is still room for growth but the direction is right. Employee engagement is seemingly important so they are attempting to listen to employees more. Great bonuses.

    Cons

    Senior management is not in touch with what's going on with individual contributors. Senior management is often unavailable. Management "talks the talk" but doesn't "walk the walk". "Employee engagement" and the "Five Principles" are often viewed as a joke by individual contributors. I think this is all due to growing pains. There has been improvement in this area, but there is a long way to go. Raises are terrible, training is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises are a joke, medical benefits are bad. They pay more for people hired into positions than people promoted into positions so long-term employment is seemingly not appreciated. This is what causes people to doubt the sincerity of the engagement efforts and the five principles.
