    I have been working at Federation of State Medical Boards full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    FSMB does important work. It's a good feeling when you know you are helping in a small way to keep Americas health system the best in the world by keeping the small percentage of bad doctors from practicing and hurting more people.

    Looking at some of the reviews, I can tell you that the bad ones are probably people who were let go because they were taking advantage of FSMB. The IT area over the last year has created a solid architecture and is in a great position to grow as a team while slowly eradicating technical debt left by people who didn't care about the long term effects of what they did.. We learn from our mistakes and move on. We are more efficient and a critical part of the overall strategy.

    The atmosphere is a small team/family atmosphere. We are in it together. We expect people to produce and do a good job but it is in a very relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Parts of the organization are very slow and resistant to change. To be relevant in the future, they must embrace change, not resist it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always strive to be better and how you can measure improvement. Hire people who can get you where you are going. Build your organization around your vision, not where you are today.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    There are so many to list. All the issues with the FCVS side comes from MANAGEMENT! When you deal with a medical professionals lively hood like this company does on a daily process and fails, makes you think about the future of this company. Management works like a dictatorship. The work/life balance is awful. This company does not care about the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at taking better care of your employees and you will get happier employees. Happy employees means more quality work!!!!

    I have been working at Federation of State Medical Boards as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company has invested in a new computer system that has streamlined the credentialing process, improved quality and reduced processing times.

    Cons

    Decent benefits but lower pay compared to other credentialing jobs. This place has a very high turnover. Management discards contract and permanent employees alike with such frequency it is mind boggling. The workforce is definitely demoralized and as soon as the economy improves the company better brace itself for a mass exodus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose managers who are fit to manage and develop their skills.

    I worked at Federation of State Medical Boards

    Pros

    Great benefits:
    - 401k with up to 15% contribution matched by company
    - Good health care and dental

    Work you do has meaning outside of the company as it effects doctors and patients alike.

    Cons

    Lots of inter office politics that often causes damage to plans that would make things better for everyone. General lack of follow through where improvements are concerned. If your part of FCVS prepare to be hated by your customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire business professionals that wish to do their job correctly and not just to look good. Stop promoting from within when outside applicants have better qualifications.
