    Pros

    Some of the most caring, innovative cutting edge doctors with wonderful clinical support.

    Cons

    Not good to their employes, and doctors don't seem to know what policies are in place and how they effect their staff. Managers have too much freedom to assert negative critique to staff.

    Advice to Management

    Look into employment patterns

    Pros

    Ok benefits, ok pay, very fast paced environment if you like that

    Cons

    HR and managers are very childish and unprofessional; they strive off of 'middle school' behavior and favoritism. Office managers have the say over all the personnel except the physicians. Extreme favortism exists among certain employees and no matter how well you do your job, you will be ostracized, written up and forced to quit or be fired if you don't fit in the 'click.' Most unprofessional office environment I've ever worked at, which explains why the turnover rate was so high and also why they're always hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the unprofessionalism and favoritism. Human resources need to get the facts for themselves instead just going by what managers say.

    Pros

    Experts in innovation; research foundation; Physicians participate wholly in academia; OC also participates in development in the field of Physiatry, a relatively new clinical application

    Cons

    Poor HR and recruitment process. After participating in several interviews over the past month and a half, arrived at formal interview only to find HR had failed to secure the interview after confirming with me and the hiring manager had left for the day. No feedback from HR following report of this incident, save an email the next business day saying the position had been filled. Received a recruitment call from the same location, which had been scheduled before the failed meeting with the hiring manager four business days and 30 minutes later for an interview regarding the position that had been indicated as already filled. Withdrew my bid for candidacy.

    Advice to Management

    While I am very proud of your achievements in Orthopedic Medicine and Physiatry, the evidence of failure to communicate and apply critical thinking skills and consistency in Human Resources and Recruitment is very disheartening, and could result in further loss of qualified candidates who admire the work of the company, but refuse to be receivers of poor consideration from recruiters.

    -Great organization -Excellent health insurance -Outstanding care for patients -Clean and sterile environment -Excellent pay as long as you are an all-star employee

    Cons

    -Had growing pains during original merger with Miller and COS but now the company is much better and more organized. With any large organization you will have hiccups but upper management does a great job with fixing and the company is hiring more effective managers and Directors.

    Advice to Management

    -None but continue to hire top notch professionals to make the right decisions.

    Pros

    Multiple locations throughout the Carolinas, 1 hour lunches

    Cons

    There is little to no room for advancement within the company, the compensation is far too low considering company expectations, and your overall success within the company all depends on who you know. I have been with the company for several years and have applied for positions that actually align with my qualifications . I have either not been contacted back about the positions or have interviewed simply based on HR's need to acquire a specific number within the applicant pool. People without the required qualifications are typically hand-picked and hired based on specific "cliques". Also, there is an obvious lack of diversity within the company (and I am not even apart of the minority) - from the physicians to practice managers to support staff members. It is especially disturbing to have a lack of diversity within the areas of management and medical providers. The training department/process is absurd; newly hired employees are sent to their sites unprepared and untrained due to the structure of the training program. The training courses are sporadically offered about once per week for about a month which is not beneficial at that point because site administrators have been required to train. The company and providers are so concerned about bringing in revenue, that other areas are less than effective. There is also such an unbelievable disconnect among the physicians/PAs and their support staff. It is almost as if the providers are 'above' all others within the organization. The IT systems are rarely ever functioning properly which affects how well employees are able to do their jobs. Lastly, it is more than obvious that the executives and administrators are not knowledgeable about business components that would help the company thrive. The doctors own and run the company - and it shows!

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of making employees feel valued - regardless of their pay grade and responsibilities. Implement better HR policies as they relate to promotion, advancement, and diversity and inclusion. It is 2014!! The organization should be represented by diverse staff members. Spend the money to acquire better systems so that the company is able to perform better overall!! Encourage providers to follow the established policies and guidelines just as other employees are expected to. Physicians should not be permitted to talk to other staff members disrespectfully just based on the fact that they are Medical Doctors or Physician Assistants. In order to increase the success of the company and improve morale, organizational collaboration should be welcomed so that all employees feel that they have more of a voice and are actually valued for their contributions to OrthoCarolina. HIRE based on actual QUALIFICATIONS AND SKILLS as opposed to friends/favorites/family members!! That may actually have a positive effect on turnover and motivation within the organization.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
