    They were very fair with a flexible schedule, nice environment, good benefits and pay. Excellent work-life balance. Very good colleagues and long time friendships from working at PAMF.

    Appreciate your great employees.

    Pros

    Once a great place under Camino Medical Group until the merger with Palo Alto and Santa Cruz.
    Good benefits package, great medical reputation, fair compensation, normal working hours, annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Management does not promote within, compensation is below industry standards, no COLA adjustment for employees that been working 5+ years. Constant micromanagement and overload of work, overworked by the on-going LEAN process. Difficulty getting vacation time off, no promotions offered by long termed employees. Favored employees get promoted regardless of their lack of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within, give your employees the opportunities they deserve.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. Retirement takes three years to be vested. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    Slow. For such a big organization located in the heart of the silicon valley they are definitely lacking.

    Advice to Management

    More transparencies.
