    Pros

    Work life balance-compensation- Fairly honest in office staff--

    Cons

    Office culture-miscommunication-do not follow up--pick and choose favorites--unorganized--Not full pay for orientation on a case

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with nurses and clients. Follow up on schedules, etc when stating you will. Do not make it obvious who the favorites are. Improve on organization. Pay nurses full pay for orientation on a case.

    I have been working at Maxim Healthcare Services part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked with Maxim for over 20 years now. The Florida and New York Offices are superior. They work hard to get you hours and they are professional and honest. The recruiters are excellent. The Georgia and Texas locations are just the opposite. They lie and they are very unfair in work assignments and pay.

    Cons

    Culture of the company does not extend to all states and regions. There is no consistency in the work ethic of the recruiters or the pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Spring Office is very unprofessional and do not have any staff worth keeping in that office. The Sugarland office has a consistent account manager but again the recruiters are horrible.

    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    easy work, great families, easy paper work, that's about all I can say pro wise

    Cons

    management doesn't care about their clients or staff, they hire young 20 somethings that don't know anything about medical field. And you get one client all day all week, they should mix it up with other clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire management with a medical background

    I have been working at Maxim Healthcare Services as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great dynamic and changing job assignments. They offer ok benefits

    Cons

    Exorbitant cost of healthcare benefits for what you actually get in coverage. The hourly pay was terrible for the level of work that you are doing, they advertise inflated benefits that dont really exist when you start working for them. Ok if you are an entry level nurse but if you are a seasoned professional go elsewhere where youll make what your worth and be given assignments that will allow you to grow your professional career goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, Dont stick nurses with assignements that will never nurture growth in their field. Actually offer the benefits that you advertise and Offer better health insurance options.

    Lots of responsibility, on the job training, diverse tasks, and small offices

    Not interested in building employee relationship, bottom line is everything, and all the talk about money can become overwhelming
