I have been working at The Vancouver Clinic full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nice and New buildings with 365 days of landscaping

Cons

Employees are Always new, employees last usually no more than 5 years tops. Human Resource suppose to be there for employees but are definately not! Management have no idea what they are doing and are allowed to harass and humiliate employees until employees quit or are set up/pressured ending in being fired! Lowest wages for all fields, Doctors have no say over anything and if employees share with providers any problems going on, then employee gets disciplined, certain departments do not allow you to work overtime but you have 1 hour mandatory meeting a month and they choose when you will take that 1 hour off, usually during a slow time in the middle of the day. Terrible place to work, worked for this company 4 1/2 years only 3 people left there from when I started. Communication sucks as you are not allowed to communicate with coworkers!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees, communicate and treat all employees equal. Spend time in quad so you know how hard employees are working and don't just show up to be negative and belittle employees when you have no idea what is even going on and there is no way you could do the job!

    I worked at The Vancouver Clinic

    Pros

    Quality support staff (medical assistants, LPNs, receptionists). Nice facilities ... with one obvious exception that will go nameless.

    Cons

    Dishonest management. Lack of real career growth. Too many unproductive RNs in supervisory roles not requiring that license. *SLOW* paycheck processing. Forced partnerships on physicians after two years require buying into clinic's *huge* construction debt. Some partners are more equal than others. Large Medicaid population (Google for this story) that clinic seems unable to shed. Questionable accounting. Extremely broad non-compete. Quality staff thanks to frequent firings, fear, and the large local unemployment statistics. Poor economic situation in SW WA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to write much here since management seems perfectly happy to run the place into the ground as is.

    Great docs, but administration is toxic, controlling, overbearing, concerned about profit over health

    I worked at The Vancouver Clinic part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    state of the art medical office, easy access to support services including hospitals, income is good. But beware! No tail coverage when you leave and major financial incentives on signing act as traps to getting out; most can't afford to leave and many would like to!

    Cons

    No employee felt free to speak their mind, very low value on employee conditions, admin not above using blackmail and bullying to get their way. Admin toxic and controlling, overbearing, pushing profit and volume and speed of seeing patients over quality of care, continuity of care, and most things that patients and physicians value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, value your docs, allow physicians to have control over their own schedules.
