Pros

Reasonable compensation. Good office people. Fast paced. Exposed to and learn new things every day.

Cons

Emphasis on production. Expectations seem a bit high initially. Lots of chatter about bonuses, but it's still just chatter. We shall see.

    Pros

    There are a lot of employees which have been with the company for years. Many of the staff and doctors in the office locations are great and hardworking.

    Cons

    The corporate office is not interested in having happy employees. In the three years I worked there in two different offices, as I was promoted, I had 8 different bosses because they all kept quitting due to being unhappy with how they were treated. Money and numbers matter more than patients. Its unfortunate that the minimum wage staff in the offices work very hard and are not ever rewarded for it.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the extremely high turn over and stop blaming it on hiring the wrong people.
