    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to scribe for some of the greatest doctors i have ever met. You will truly learn professionalism from the doctors they put you with.

    Cons

    The company was going through a lot of transition at the time that I was employed so there were lots of delays. But the new lead scribes did a great job to sort things out.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great job to learn and experience a fast-paced emergency department. Pay was decent for part-time work as a college student.

    Cons

    Long hours and frequently having to cycle between all day or all night shifts.

    Worked remotely from home. Paid travel.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Crappy training protocols

    Advice to Management

    I would revamp the protocols on hiring and ths training process. Management needs to be more organized and vocal about the expectations of the team.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time

    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

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems full-time (More than a year)

    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.
