    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.

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

    Pros

    great proximity to st pete and clearwater

    Cons

    jobs are not really what they are advertised to be; manager at this location lacks management skills and is verbally abusive; local manager does not know the company well enough to train office staff; long-term office staff is devious and manipulative and feels threatened by new office staff who are better educated and more experienced, so she sabotages your efforts to successfully complete the introductory period

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more selective about the administrators you hire, take action when complaints are brought against long-term staff

    I have been working at Medical Services of America

    Pros

    No worries of traveling for meetings or training; because there isn't ANY!!

    Cons

    Marketing budget of $250 each month. Can not do luncheons with physicians. Getting reimbursed for expenses is a total hassle. No corporate card here! You will pay for everything yourself. Personal money will stay tied up in expenses that are owed. There is no available promotional items other than pens. Very limited on flyers regarding disease process to educate physicians. If you are just getting started in marketing/sales this position may be right for you, otherwise beware. I wish I would have. Company has high expectations of reps and will not provide resources required to be successful in competitive areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money to make money. MSA is known as a joke among larger DME providers and home health. To avoid this reputation get rid of some of this salaries that are not necessary and use it toward adequate marketing budgets and supplies.

    Pros

    Flexible hours for a temp worker.
    Some cool people to work with but anyone above you isn't worth saying hello to. They won't do the same for you.

    Cons

    Senior management (A.K.A. Corporate) is in another building next door and does not bother checking on any of the worker bees. Pay is terrible. Management shuffles most of the employees every few months and it's not even under the pretense of cross training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation
    Diversity

    Pros

    Friendly environment with access to upper management
    Great work/life balance
    Family based work atmosphere with a dedicated patient focus mentality

    Cons

    Opportunity to advancement but without increase in compensation
    Could buck up the technology to increase access to patient information
    Overall, a really great place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and thank you for allowing your employees to have a voice regarding policy and procedure!

    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!
