    The rapid growth of this company caused them to lose focus of their best assets, their employees. Morale suffered.

    I worked at Sound Inpatient Physicians full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The rapid and expansive growth offered potential, however, mostly for new physicians entering the company.

    Cons

    Morale of the administrative staff suffered greatly due to a lack of support and positive feedback from the executive members. They could have been under stress from the fast paced growth of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek advice from those you have hired to do a specific job. That is why they were hired in the first place. They have the knowledge and training to perform the tasks that need to be accomplished and that others have not been trained to do.

    They don't live up to the rhetoric

    I have been working at Sound Inpatient Physicians

    Pros

    In Denver, the scheduling is flexible, which accommodates personal lives in some ways than the traditional seven-on-seven-off schedule.

    Cons

    Sound purports to prioritize physicians as its first priority. However, that is not the case. Sound is a strongly driven business model that is focused on profit, not physician satisfaction. Current leadership is not trained or skilled in dealing with physicians, and we are treated like a commodity. You have little say in decision-making. I do not feel physicians are respected or treated fairly in the organization. It is very disappointing to look at their website, which places such a strong focus on physicians, and know that they do not live up to the rhetoric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should either be more highly trained in business or in internal medicine. People skills need to be improved. Physicians need to feel that they truly are the focus of the group and not an afterthought.

    Potential currently squandered.

    I worked at Sound Inpatient Physicians

    Pros

    If they were able to achieve it, the work-life balance would be the best reason to work with them. However, at this time, they are understaffed and physicians are having to work extra shifts and cover extra patients. They do have better educational resources than other hospitalist groups. Your colleagues will be above average in terms of personality, I think simply because they are attracted to a place that purports to offer less stress.

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than competing hospitalist groups. No vacation is offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core of your business, which is providing hospitalist physicians with the tools and support to do their job well.
