    Pros

    Medi Home Care- Good Regional Manager
    Semi-flexible work hours
    Understanding Regional when life situations occur.
    Patients come first. Often times providing free supplies when indigent are unable to afford care or supplies.

    Cons

    High workplace turnover of staff.
    No raises during my 3 yrs of employment
    Office manager treats staff like dirt
    Minority descrimination
    Patients are generally presumed to be right and staff are in the wrong when rare pt. complaints are made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal immediately with staff complaints.
    Enforce and adhere to non-denominational policy.
    Reward your employees with raises to reinforce good performance and reduce turnover.

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly coworkers, not bad hours

    Cons

    poor communication between staff and regional office, salary vs hourly staff expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourly and casual status staff are expected to work and put forth extra effort when salary staff do not have to. Salary staff should be expected to put forth more!

    Former Employee - Sales Representative

    I worked at Medical Services of America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The regional sales manager RARELY made an office visit, so micromanagement was minimal. My location manager handled the office operations and my job was to generate referrals. We got along great and worked together to keep our office in business.

    Cons

    Serious lack of resources for sales reps. We had monthly meetings but I had to make a ridiculously long drive every month to the corporate office for a meeting that provided little value as far as increasing sales and developing selling skills. As a rep, I had to make my own sales materials. Literally, copying and pasting our company logo and local office information to printouts from our vendor's websites. Due to the competitive bidding process, the company has been in the process of restructuring, and many people lost their jobs. I was told that I would be able to move to another local office and keep my job, only to find out later in a voicemail that this may not be the case. My regional sales manager jumped ship just before the switch was supposed to occur. The new regional manager never reached out, so I emailed him to discuss the move to the new location. He told me in an email that everyone in our office, including me, was being "severanced". Yes, he made that word up. I had never even met this man and he did not even have the professional courtesy to pick up the phone to let me know. DO NOT take a sales job with this company. If you can help it, DO NOT take any job with this company. Management is in complete disarray and nobody knows who to report to. If you are desperate, make sure you negotiate a higher salary before you go on board, or don't expect a raise. There were some quarters where sales commissions simply weren't paid. I was lucky enough to get out with a severance package, but many of the employees at the corporate office were brought into their manager's office and told they were being fired for breaking some rule. There were specific instances when these rules were made up just to have an excuse to fire the employee, as the employee had no idea that the rule or guideline existed or had been changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and be more transparent with your employees. Establish goals as a team with your employees and work together to achieve them. Provide them with the resources to get the job done instead of scaling back and expecting them to provide results. It takes money to make money.

    I worked at Medical Services of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The branch that I worked at was blessed to have some of the greatest, goal driven, motivated individuals anyone can ask to find.

    Cons

    No privacy, no anonymity, cannot in good faith try to share/ discuss /resolve any issues within the branches or corporate office.. because they allowed too much trust in their top dog the administrator and or DOPS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the overall picture.. retention is vital and important, word of mouth is important too many changes to soon without plans to back up the changes only hurts those most loyal and trust worthy... the board of directors has no real clue as to what's going on in the branches.. You have key individuals with their own agendas and selfish schemes doing what is best for them and not the company nor the employees.

    There is no communication with the staff.. town hall meetings don't exist with upper management that provide a neutral work environment. Administrators are allowed to bring onboard friends and former colleagues and provide the references needed for them without corp HR doing their due diligence and investigating the information as they do for the little guys.

    Salaries are inflated for friends, and the over all business is being falsely represented to the board and upper management by the very people entrusted to be honest, responsible and respectful.
