    Operations

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at ExamWorks

    Pros

    Growing company with a niche market, so job security is optimal so long as you're smart and responsible. Co-workers outside of upper mgmt are friendly and reasonable.

    Cons

    Micro-managing, politics and "numbers" driven business code is very frustrating for staff. Staff is always blamed first for problems before investigating. VERY poor communication between mgmt and ops

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your teams and look at the big picture.

    Pros

    You have job= your not umemployed
    You have a paycheck= your not unemployed
    You can pay your bills= your not unemployed
    You can feed your children and provide a roof under their head= your not unemployed

    Cons

    Yes a lot of sneeky co-workers, but who cares your still getting paid at the end of the day.
    Yes a lotttt of micro managing, my advice, and take it from me...do not show emotion because the minute they see you are weak they will take advantage of it. Do not allow anyone to muddle with your liveliyhood. It doesnt matter where you work you will always have micro managing, dont take it personally these are people that are insecure and have a lack confidence. Pray for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to reflect on how big your company has grown. Take the time out to thank past and present employees on making your company as big as it is now. God Bless

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Not having to work holidays or weekends ... wait a moment ... you have to do that so that's not a Pro. Being able to work from home as was discussed during the interview ... wait another moment ... nope can't do that either because they just don't feel like it's in the company's best interest never mind that productivity and quality are better when workers are able to work from home. Only possible "pro" would be stock options that I was given that are no longer offered. However, the stock option only makes up for the low salaries provided. Sooo ... yeah can't come up with a pro.

    Cons

    I worked there for just over a year and a half and ended up in the hospital twice and had multiple doctor appointments for panic disorder only diagnosed AFTER starting to work there. The supervisor and management styles have been described as "psycho-terror." Don't even think about having to go to the bathroom too often. Don't talk to your co-workers in the bathroom or the lunch area because you're listened to there and what you say is relayed to management. All communication between management and workers have a punitive feel about them. Micro-managing is a common practice and the only way they know how to do things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop posting fake positive reviews to offset the multiple real reviews of the place. Let your employees talk to the higher-ups so they can get a real feel of what's going on and why the turn over is so high. When I left, most of the employees were looking for other work and ready to leave if another opportunity presented itself.
