    Pros

    Organization truly values work/life balance, as evidenced by flexible hours, telecommuting, summer hours, balance days, and family-friendly atmosphere. Many concurrent projects that lead health care management in the United States, so there are opportunities for meaningful and challenging work.

    Cons

    The role of technology seems misplaced, as the organization emphasizes upgrading to newer technologies rather than using technology as a tool to advnace business/clinical initiatives. Growth opportunities are limited to "chosen ones". Many business decisions appear to be influenced more by company politicking and hunches rather than empirical data and objective analysis. Recent growth in the organization has centered on additional middle management and has led to "Too many chiefs".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good coaches place their players in positions that maximize their talents and opportunity to succeed. Likewise, balance out the number of "workers" and "managers" and assign projects to employees in a way that will maximize their opportunities to succeed. Take advantage of "big data" in decision-making.

    Pros

    Some really nice & cool people work here.

    Cons

    I had a culture shock first when I joined the company. Extremely formal environment and most of the people appeared fearful. Too much politics within the IT (IS as they call it). They encourage people to have low ambitions. Because it helps the senior management as there is only little career opportunities. I am not sure how come it has such good reviews by other people. I also got attracted due to this and the recruiter persuaded me to join telling lot of good stuff. All turned out to be lies later on. Perhaps it is so small organization that every single review can be correlated to people. So no one wants to take chance. It is not a company for ambitious people.

    90 day evaluation period is a trap that company puts in the offer letter. It is like a contract to hire. Never seen this type of full time job offers. So advice to all the candidates who want to join is to be aware of this clause in the offer letter. They are very strict about it and I saw many people being fired in my short tenure here using this clause. This type of things gives extremely bad outlook towards any company. It appears as if they do not describe the job description and job duties at the beginning or interview candidates properly and they experiment with the candidates. May be company is not aware of the bad publicity it will get because of this and will have difficulty finding candidates in future.

    It appears to be struggling with finance and the reason is overspending management does because of bad judgement. No one tries to fix that.

    Company has weird type of structure and hierarchy. At times it appears that no one understands how other companies work. Highly disorganized. Another weird thing is that no one wants to talk or hear about such things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the politics and overspending happening in the IT.

    Exceptional opportunities to make a difference in the health care sector while enjoying work / life balance.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Ramon, CA

    Pros

    Reat opportunities to enjoy work / life balance; excellent benefits; exceptional people; stable company with continued opportunities to grow one's career.

    Cons

    PriMed is a smaller fish in a big pond, and while those who perform at high levels are recognized and rewarded, there are fewer opportunities for lateral and upward career growth than in larger companies with high turnover. Learning opportunities abound, but job movement is somewhat limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do what makes this organization so wonderful - value your employees and recognize that part of what makes this organization so special is the opportunity to work hard, but also to play hard.

    Great perks at Hill Physicians

    Current Employee - Customer Service  in  San Ramon, CA
    Current Employee - Customer Service in San Ramon, CA

    Pros

    There are many perks like exercise day and the wellness program bonus. Employees get a $400 bonus for taking good care of themselves. There are many opportunities to learn about losing weight and lowering your cholesterol and blood pressure to help you out. There are fun company outings and meetings. There is a sense of humor and a relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Its a medium sized company but there is very little interface with senior management. Two separate buildings separate the senior management and regular employees. This will change at the beginning of the new year when there will be a move to Bishop Ranch in January.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To get more involved with every level of the employees. To find out who the incompetent directors and managers really are. To find out who the real stars really are.
