    I have been working at ExamWorks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Corporate seems to want to make employees happy, promotion opportunities, benefits and what management views as fair wages

    Cons

    Local office management claim to not have any power, the different offices have not come together to function as a team which leads to confusion and disatisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your your employees- they are the ones who keep you operating. Without them, the whole company would be lost since operational managers do not really know how operations work.

    Pros

    Stock options are a plus and salaries are comparable. Larger company enables larger pool of clients.

    Cons

    Company is stretched too thin; bottom line is always numbers, numbers, numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try treating employees more like people and less like statistics.

    Pros

    It's a job. That's about it.

    Cons

    Lots of long hours, especially during "end of month" pushes for revenue, very corporate structure. Very sterile office culture, breeds paranoia, rows of stalls of cubicles arms length across, back open to aisle. Mgt patrols during the day. High school vibe, with upper manager "pallies" (personal friends from high school) with many coworkers. Lots of gossip, backstabbing amongst the office. HR support non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the humanity back in human resourses. You're alienating good employees, and burning out people over nonsense. Rules seem to be made for rules sake, and meetings for meetings sake.

    I worked at ExamWorks

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, high customer service..

    Cons

    Management does not treat staff members equally. Over a 6 yr period with the company, I witnessed certain employees receive accommodations for work schedule, time off, and even work space, where others were kept to a standard. Certain supervisors confide in some employees in an inappropriate way: revealing information regarding company or personnel that should be confidential. Company is numbers driven which sometimes leaves out the human factor.

    I have been working at ExamWorks

    Pros

    Secure job as long as you do your work and do it in a timely fashion.
    Free coffee and a lot of company activities outside the office.
    Good working hours.
    15 Paid days.

    Cons

    Starting and base salaries.
    A lot of unneeded stress and pressure.
    Bonuses and stock options are few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More positive feedback and better energy would help go a long way.

    I have been working at ExamWorks full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with no benefits

    Cons

    Lack of communication
    Reviews performed on the last day, and no hard copies to view-supervisor "doesn't believe in numbers", said I was doing a "GREAT" job, and most of numbers were 4s and high 3s-this is with no complaints
    no answer regarding raises, except maybe 2% at most for those even receiving raises, but no time frame
    Concerns to local management are not addressed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The discussion of communication, or lack thereof, is like beating a dead horse-management seems concerned every time the topic is brought up, and yet, no improvement. Employees are important for one reason only! Numbers!-nothing else matters
    Jobs are scarce, so we are caught between a rock and a hard place

    Pros

    Consistant work, good outlook for future employees.

    Cons

    it seems management has been trained to treat their employees like children. Going to the bathroom is frowned on, and trying to make a doctors appointment is terms for a write up. Management makes mistakes on a daily basis , and then blames employees to cover there own mistakes. These people should not be allowed to walk the face of the earth. They are not human! Micro management is practiced consistently, and the employees go through hell every day. It blows me away that this company exists, and that they get away with the sad treatment of there employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some( How to be a human being lessons!) They would have much happier employees who would not feel such hatred towards there bosses.
