    Pros

    I really enjoy my patients and I have a great manager.

    Cons

    Too much revolves around the budget. Employees should be compensated better.

    Advice to Management

    My experience was great at FMC.. My manager was patient & understanding.. We're still friends & I can use her for references. I'm PRN now, but wouldn't mind going back to full time.
    My advice would be to focus more on compensation a little better. Hourly employees should get paid a little better.

    Pros

    My learning experience was impeccable. It enhanced the skills I already had as a phlebotomist. My trainer was awesome.

    Cons

    Always short staffed, unprofessional management team, lack of assistance from upper management

    Advice to Management

    When hiring mgmt staff please make sure they are qualified and not just a body. It makes a difference if they have a nice personality because they interact with the public and the last things patients need is person who makes them feel less than who they are. Saying "good morning" matters.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is certainly the biggest positive. I don't believe I have received an email from a co-worker after 6PM, and never on weekends. In today's working life, that's hard to find. I also went to a 3 day training session which discussed many of the aspects of the job, though not all.

    Cons

    There are many negatives. First, there is no clear way to move up in the company. I do not believe they want to promote from within. I also do not believe in the vision or that it applies to daily working life. It seems like the stock price is the determining factor, though very few positions get bonuses (i.e. maybe corporate positions do, not sure). There are no promotions or possibilities of promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Have a fair, open and honest compensation model. Have clearly defined path the employees can take to get to the next position. Provide the necessary tools for people to complete the tasks they are asked to complete. Provide better incentives to work harder or longer.

    Pros

    7 weeks vacation-can't beat that! Profit sharing is a percentage of annual salary and goes directly into 401k. Great communication from corporate.

    Cons

    Location manager is stuck in 1988 and refuses to accept and implement new and advantageous ideas and systems that would help location become more streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assume you know everything. Listen to those under you and take their ideas into consideration instead of just shutting them down instantly.
