I worked at Surgical Care Affiliates full-time

Pros

The company has had a lot of turnover so most of the employees are fresh and excited to be there. This makes for a fun, high energy environment.

Cons

SCA is big on establishing a strong corporate culture but the effort to do so is completely outsourced to a consulting firm. I often hear co-workers describing it as not being authentic and feeling forced.

Most of the corporate office is in Birmingham, Alabama but the CEO spends most of his time in a small Chicago office. The absence of the leadership is definitely felt all the way down the corporate ladder. This is not an environment that builds strong leaders.

    I have been working at Surgical Care Affiliates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere. Decent benefits. Upper management welcomes your suggestions for improvement. Young company. Actively growing and there is the potential to accumulate excellent experience.

    Cons

    Prone to give promotions which include more responsibilities with insufficient or complete lack of financial incentive improvement. The amount of work is overwhelming due to understaffing and poor planning.

    I have been working at Surgical Care Affiliates full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional values, physicians are taken well care of.

    Cons

    Favortism. Management does not live up to the values expected of teammates. No integrity. Management hires family and friends and promotes them over employees who have been loyal to them 7, 10 and 35 yrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair, consider team morale, and loss of the teammates who do more than they are paid to do. Consider what you would if your best employees walked away, and then take care of the ones who have been taking care of you.
