This company is all false promises of support and structure.

I worked at Team Health full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Large company with national "support"
- The best advantage to working with them is likely the risk management resources aimed at helping their physician clients
- Malpractice coverage, CME reimbursement, lots of job openings and opportunity for advancement

Cons

- Poor communication, they try to make up quality communication with quantity of emails and forced leader rounding but rarely have communication that is not redundant or misinformation. With constant changing infrastructure it is nearly impossible to have a go-to contact person for any specific area (support staff, human resources, recruiting).
- Very poor recruitment and use of sister company (D&Y) for locums support. The work ethic and attitude was less than expected. Their ability to expedite the application and credentialing process was surprisingly non-existent.
- Very "ER-centric". Despite the company promoting a combined service line approach to their marketing and sales pitch. In my opinion, the goal for improving patient care and effective utilization of services took a "back seat" to focusing on revenue.
- Benefits are not attractive.
- Non-sustainable growth. They focus on getting contracts and buying up smaller companies, but do very little to sustain the satisfaction of their current employees and only superficially seem to care about maintaining their hospital clients' satisfaction. Those who are willing to work, seem to get worked into the ground.

The actions of this company do not reflect their vision or mission statement, at least in my experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See above. Do an exit interview on employees and use that information moving foward.

    Pros

    Thought it was a promising place to grow and learn and be rewarded for hard work performed,

    Cons

    Looses Humanistic approach. Too big where employee becomes another ID#.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase staff contact. Create program for Human development from within, acknowledge good workers versus those that appear to be working due to the way the handle themselves through speech and perceived eloquence.

    I worked at Team Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at the hospital was a wonderful experience, very eye opening, and the physicians are all great. If this is what you are looking for, stick to working as a Clinical Information Manager, and stay away from taking on the role as lead as it will force you to be more involved in company culture and more involved with management. A warning to those that do take on a position as a Clinical Information Manager: Even if you are not a lead, you will have to deal with management and it is stressful and incredibly frustrating.

    Cons

    Management simply put, does not know how to manage. Some of the managers do not even have college degrees, and those that do have absolutely no management experience, and their lack of experience and education clearly show in their work. They have created a hostile environment to work in where there is constant backbiting, and they will find fault in your work, causing you to constantly be on edge about what they may find wrong next (even if nothing is in fact wrong with your work). They look for opportunities to write people up and I once saw somebody's write up including going to the restroom during a meeting... no joke. Management constantly talks down to its employees and acts as though they are superior. They have no idea how to motivate people and through their power-pushing ways, they push people away and cause them to be less interested in what they do. It is very, very unfortunate as there are some very smart people that take on this job. As a lead at a facility, I would constantly see how disgruntled people were with TeamHealth, their management, and culture.

    This place is so bad its seriously fit for a reality TV show.
    I don't recommend it at all as it causes a lot of unnecessary stress in your life. Fortunately, there are many other scribe companies going strong in Houston, so I would definitely look around prior to taking on this position. It will save a lot of stress.
