    Pros

    You get experience you will get nowhere else if you are interested in entering the healthcare field. EMS does a great job of training and keeping you on top of your charts. It probably varies from hospital to hospital according to who the lead scribe is, but I had a great experience with mine.

    Cons

    They pay very little, but to be honest I would have done that work for free because of what great experience and education it gave me before going to PA school.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management was very good. They accommodated me when I was in school and needed to have shifts off to study for finals.

    Pros

    They are a great company. They have found a niche in the market and exploit it well, treating their clients and employees with respect.

    Cons

    They limit the ability to work more. This makes it difficulty to live in Santa Barbara and work, forcing many employees to have a second job.

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people who work here. They genuinely care about employees and want them to succeed and grow within the company. They have better than average benefits. In the marketing department, they were open to new ideas and concepts.

    Cons

    There is an obvious disconnect between mid-level management and upper management. The company structure seemed disorganized at times, which made it difficult to get projects completed.

    Pros

    Great experience in a healthcare setting, learning terminology and the flow of the emergency department. Exposure to a broad variety of clinical cases keeps the job interesting

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the pay rate with this company is somewhat lower than other scribe companies. Finding coverage in an emergency can be somewhat difficult

    Pros

    Outside of being located in sunny southern California and the office being in a prime location, with easy access to coffee shops, restaurants, errand needs, etc., not much comes to mind. The bonus structure was lucrative whenever it wasn't unobtainable, which was rarely since 2013. Services did impact the provider and patient in a way that truly bettered healthcare for each of them.

    Cons

    The company was operationally strong, with many committed departments seeking to build a formidable competitive edge, but the motivating factors within Executive leadership tainted any ability to truly achieve that. It became apparent that honesty and integrity was a fleeting concept at the top, becoming more about insulating themselves with workers who could keep up the facade. There was an obscene level of turnover within the company, something I'm confident contributed to its demise. More than that, mismanagement of funds and poorly hiring key operational and management employees (yes, this includes C-Level staff, too, where inappropriateness and nepotism ran wild) kept wheels spinning in frustration, rather than moving forward. Simply stated, significantly questionable business and HR practices whittled a once-great company down to nothing. The company began to be known for poor compensation in nearly all roles; Constant pressure to do more with less, including income in one of America's most expensive cities. Raises were never paid on time or fairly, and annual evaluations were seemingly withheld until employees asked for them. It was an uphill battle everyday under prior leadership; There were many months when insecurity, threats to one's position, and antagonism hung in the air like a dense could of humidity. Once new leadership came on board, it seemed the ship was heading into safer waters, however it was a complete ruse. It's truly sad to see what has come of this company. Rest in Peace, Titantic 2.

    Advice to Management

    Never run another company again.

    Pros

    Overall, a good experience being on the corporate side of the company. Travel is covered, good benefits for a young professional without dependents and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Downsides include being overworked, depending on your role. You are also out of the loop on big decisions going on in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your staff in the loop and informed on major decisons.


  10. Long hours, but intrinsically rewarding due learning in a niche field and clinical exposure.

    Pros

    Well paying part-time for college students. Employers are understanding and cooperative. Excellent opportunity for learning about emergency room operations

    Cons

    Overnight shifts can be grueling if you are taking college classes. Compensation is compromised to due gaining "pre-med"experience. Novelty can wear off despite being in the ER.

    Advice to Management

    Pre-med students will undergo a lot of debt in medical school, and already have hard classes. Provide higher compensation.


  11. Working for the company itself was horrible!

    Pros

    Wokring in the medical field has its own reward. Some of the physicians were helpful and wanted you to learn and you get the feel of fast pace ER Experience.

    Cons

    If you are a student run! Yes you get the experience of working in the medical field but all the work they make you do isn't worth the pay especially if your a student. They really hire anybody, a couple of scribes just made it past High School with no college experience they are always looking because the amount of people that are constantly quitting. The management sucks because they are stationed in California and the lead scribe really has no athority. The lead scribe is kinda the babysitter and they are spy's for the management in California . So if your not on the lead scribe good side he/she will do and say anything to get you off the team. Didn't feel like a job to me basically because the feel of how things were tuned was unprofessional. The employees and the hospital itself not tied into medical scribe system were a bigger help.

    Advice to Management

    Train your lead scribes and training scribes better. The overall training is unprofessional and not beneficial. The pay should increase due to the amount of work that the company is expecting.
