    I worked at OrthoCarolina full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, flexible with time off, good continuing education opportunities, excellent equipment and medical records. Workplace provides up to date facilities, staff and training.

    Cons

    Driven to be a successful business first, provide for patients second, and employees third. Leadership is somewhat handicapped by the fact that this is a physician owned and operated company; therapy is an ancillary service. While I believe it is possible to give good quality care in this environment it is not the primary focus of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a disconnect between the physician offices and therapy offices at times....information is shared via medical records and physicians are open to communication given by therapists however ancillary staff in physician's offices including front office as well as medical assistants and nurses and relations with therapists is strained. We are all on the same team and should be treated as such.

    I have been working at OrthoCarolina full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    New director has informed employees to report anything office managers do and she will make sure that they are dealt with. Prior director believed everything management told them

    Cons

    Only prompted if you are friends with those already in higher management. African American has no chance for promotion. I have been employed with this company for over 10 years applied more than 8 positions and never received a call or interview for any of the positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The diversity group that was developed needs to be reorganized and be more focus on the employees rather then patients locations. Stop hiring family and Friends and hire truly qualified employees.

    Pros

    some of the people worker bee's are nice, you are paid twice a month.

    Cons

    Management is horrible & all about themselves: HR won't don't a thing because they are fine with the bad behavior of the managers. The people who do all the work are never acknowledge, manager or so called crazy supervisor will take credit for everything. Business Office needs an overhaul! No room for advancement at all unless you are a brown nose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the management on the 3rd floor. some of the supervisors need to go. Pay attention to what is going on with the people who work at OC, not the managers.

    Pros

    The employees are great and I really enjoy working with them.

    Cons

    There is no Core Values from the top on down.. The leadership and management is a complete disaster. They can care less about how the treat their employees. The Docs own the company and all they care about is padding their pockets. They paid is extremely low, so if you want to make ends meet please join OrthoCarolina.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get re-train..There are Managers with the company that do not have a degree

    I have been working at OrthoCarolina

    Pros

    Advancement, positive enviroment, overall organizational goal of excellence in orthopedics. I like the fact that they have so many locations to make it convient to commute to.

    Cons

    Sometimes in becoming such a large organization, veteran employees get lost. I think a greater appreciation for the employees that have been there the longest should be valued more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer education reimbursement, and more training classes for the staff that directly deal with the public. I also think they could do a better job of focusing on the needs of the employees as it pertains to effectively doing their job.
