    Everyone that works here calls it Team Hell for a reason.

    I have been working at Team Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you love working in a stale, moderate toned, stadium sized sea of cubicles that seconds as a meat grinder for the human soul, then you'll absolutely LOVE working at Team Health!

    Cons

    The wages are awful and the health insurance and other benefits aren't any better. For a primary healthcare billing center that deals with hundreds of mainstream health insurance companies you would think the benefits would be awesome and dirt cheap, but they aren't. You have to kill yourself to get a pay increase even though the company is profiting hand over fist right now. Our productivity in our billing center is though the roof, but they won't hire any new help to keep the workflow going. They expect everything and give nothing in return except low wages, excuses, and stress.

    As well, like a lot of modern corporations, they rely to much on "Senior knowledge" rather than the real computer guru's, techs, and college grads with actual business degrees that know the software and how to utilize technology to be more productive. It is in one ear and out the other with management and the Luddites that only keep their jobs due to cronyism and nepotism. Also, like a lot of modern office spaces, it is just a realm of empty promises and emptier chest cavities where hearts used to be. They hire you, you take it desperately seeking employment, they see you doing well, the blow smoke up your ass a little while, and then "BAM!" they expect you to be their contingency plan when the idea's they had fall apart.
    If I had a dime for every time I said, "I told you so", to some senior staffer I'd probably own the place by now. That, and the management, if it exists, doesn't listen or keep an eye on anything. Even though the place is booming profit wise right now, it comes at the cost of a workforce that is slowly waking up to the fact that this place is an utter grind-house and that there are much better opportunities elsewhere.

    How they've made it so far with the people that run the place now is a mystery to me. Half of them don't know Excel past an hour long 101 course, they harp about productivity and doing more work even though the workload has increased over 60% in the two and half years I've been employed there, and the minimum standard keeps rising month over month with no compensation or additional help to go with it. It is insane, and they are literally at the cusp of digging their own corporate grave if this trend continues. What used to be a comfy full time job when I started is now a daily workload hell that gets worse every month. No matter how many times I bring up the data and facts at meetings, nobody is willing to listen! The fact is that you can only push your staff for so long, and for so hard, before they start dropping like flies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of your damned offices and see what is happening out on the processing floor of the billing center from time to time. Instead of spending all your time counting the money, it might be nice to see that people are killing themselves to make all that money.

    I have been working at Team Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits = Great! PTO time is 3 weeks and they are very flexible in my department
    Production Bonus's are very nice every 3 months!!
    I've always worked in management so it's nice to go to work, put in your 8 hrs and go home!
    Co-workers are very nice and friendly
    Promotions/advancement within the company
    Your very own cubicle space to decorate as you please
    I stay busy all day, always have something to do so the day goes by fast

    Cons

    Training=Terrible... I spent 3 days learning the general system and then a day or two with a senior but they too have to meet production at the same time so you feel like a bother..
    They need a specific training department of 4 or 5 people so their job is just to train.. They need to have a handbook/cheat sheet for all they types of insurances such as Medicare, Medicaid, W/C, etc. You have no idea all the different rules & regulations, forms etc.
    Also, depends on who ends up sitting with you the 1st week but everybody trains/teaches so there is no standard!!

    Pay scale could be better... Haven't seen a raise yet..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Above notes... TRAINING! Pay Rate increases every so often..

    I worked at Team Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Large company with national "support"
    - The best advantage to working with them is likely the risk management resources aimed at helping their physician clients
    - Malpractice coverage, CME reimbursement, lots of job openings and opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    - Poor communication, they try to make up quality communication with quantity of emails and forced leader rounding but rarely have communication that is not redundant or misinformation. With constant changing infrastructure it is nearly impossible to have a go-to contact person for any specific area (support staff, human resources, recruiting).
    - Very poor recruitment and use of sister company (D&Y) for locums support. The work ethic and attitude was less than expected. Their ability to expedite the application and credentialing process was surprisingly non-existent.
    - Very "ER-centric". Despite the company promoting a combined service line approach to their marketing and sales pitch. In my opinion, the goal for improving patient care and effective utilization of services took a "back seat" to focusing on revenue.
    - Benefits are not attractive.
    - Non-sustainable growth. They focus on getting contracts and buying up smaller companies, but do very little to sustain the satisfaction of their current employees and only superficially seem to care about maintaining their hospital clients' satisfaction. Those who are willing to work, seem to get worked into the ground.

    The actions of this company do not reflect their vision or mission statement, at least in my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above. Do an exit interview on employees and use that information moving foward.

    I worked at Team Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Thought it was a promising place to grow and learn and be rewarded for hard work performed,

    Cons

    Looses Humanistic approach. Too big where employee becomes another ID#.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase staff contact. Create program for Human development from within, acknowledge good workers versus those that appear to be working due to the way the handle themselves through speech and perceived eloquence.

    Former Employee - Lead Clinical Information Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Lead Clinical Information Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at Team Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working at the hospital was a wonderful experience, very eye opening, and the physicians are all great. If this is what you are looking for, stick to working as a Clinical Information Manager, and stay away from taking on the role as lead as it will force you to be more involved in company culture and more involved with management. A warning to those that do take on a position as a Clinical Information Manager: Even if you are not a lead, you will have to deal with management and it is stressful and incredibly frustrating.

    Cons

    Management simply put, does not know how to manage. Some of the managers do not even have college degrees, and those that do have absolutely no management experience, and their lack of experience and education clearly show in their work. They have created a hostile environment to work in where there is constant backbiting, and they will find fault in your work, causing you to constantly be on edge about what they may find wrong next (even if nothing is in fact wrong with your work). They look for opportunities to write people up and I once saw somebody's write up including going to the restroom during a meeting... no joke. Management constantly talks down to its employees and acts as though they are superior. They have no idea how to motivate people and through their power-pushing ways, they push people away and cause them to be less interested in what they do. It is very, very unfortunate as there are some very smart people that take on this job. As a lead at a facility, I would constantly see how disgruntled people were with TeamHealth, their management, and culture.

    This place is so bad its seriously fit for a reality TV show.
    I don't recommend it at all as it causes a lot of unnecessary stress in your life. Fortunately, there are many other scribe companies going strong in Houston, so I would definitely look around prior to taking on this position. It will save a lot of stress.

    Pros

    People outside of your department genuinely care about how you are doing.

    Cons

    Micro-managing, lack of interest from manager, not enough training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to train your employees. Do not expect them to come in with a full understanding of what is expected of them. One day of training does not prepare you for what is to come in the future.

    I worked at Team Health as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, lots of locations at which to work.

    Cons

    No benefits, a very large portion of your earnings skimmed off the top to pay for a VERY large organization with big salaries, as an independent contractor don't forget that you can add almost 8% federal tax on top of what you will pay in your tax bracket, and no real accounting of where all the money goes. The upshot is that you will be making less than you think, especially depending upon what part of the country you work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get leaner, and pay they physician more of what they are earning.
