    No bonuses and raised are based on percentage of current salary. You need to make sure you get a high starting salary.

    Pros

    Some of the employees really are great to work with, but most should not be working in a medical field.

    Cons

    They care more about the bottom line then they do patient care. Hiring uncertified MA's that don't know a generic drug from a brand name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to care more about patients and employee's
