    I have been working at U.S. Healthworks full-time

    Pros

    I guess it's a good job right out of school to get experience, but...

    Cons

    I started as an M.A. in 2002 for $10/hr. As of 2015 I have STILL not doubled that.

    Pros

    Great exposure, small but close knit team working environment.

    Cons

    Poor pay, extremely high stress with unpredictable work volume, high patient volume, extremely high turnover rate, frequent overtime. Very poor compensation structure and little or no efforts in staff retention.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

    Pros

    The only good thing I got out of it was my benefits and learned quite a few things.

    Cons

    The employees were unprofessional with constant drama and favoritism was very bad there as well. Management kept hiring family and friends instead of people they didn't know to reduce the bickering. No one wanted to work therefore it was very hard to ever get vacation. Patients weren't put first. Very un organized. The same people that caused so much unprofessionalism is still there. I would never go back even if I was desperate and I've never felt that way about a job. Management needs to really sit back and look at what's going on to fix it.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be professional and fair with all employees.

    Pros

    People are very nice and professional that I have worked with. This is good for per diem work on the side for extra working hours but not full time.

    Cons

    As a provider, they will work you to death. They do not value patients as they pile patients on an unreasonable schedule not allowing for quality care. Unfair incentive plan. Impossible to obtain a bonus. Hours unreasonable. Nobody wants to work here so there is much difficulty finding someone to cover while you are on vacation. If you can't find coverage you cannot go on vacation. Poor opportunity for raises or promotions.

    Pros

    Flexible hours.
    Pays overtime.
    Friendly staff.
    Many locations, allowing for extra sifts when desired.
    Willing to hire and train new providers (at least that was promised, although the reality was different).

    Cons

    32 hour work-week is considered full time; this is not made clear in interview. You may be told a wage and then scheduled for only 32 hours/week which is 20% less than typical companies.
    Health insurance is VERY expensive, especially to add family members.
    No lunch break (and no flexibility on this).
    The appointment scheduling system is not clearly explained to patients--they may be given appts and then wait for hours as walk ins are sometimes given priority, which makes them rightfully upset.
    Very few PTO days.
    When the company was struggling, employee hours were cut to save money. However demand often required that providers stay late despite hours being officially cut.
    Very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Would consider a more comprehensive training program for new providers, many of whom are not coming from an occupational medicine background. Also instead of bonuses and productivity incentives would consider revamping your benefit structure, providing stable hours and paying your support staff a living wage so there would be less turnover.

    Pros

    Decent salary, Working with a good team, mostly working 1-on-1 with patients.

    Cons

    Multiple levels of management meaning it takes a really long time for any job positions to be filled or even advertised.

    Advice to Management

    Let the center management teams have more ability to run their own centers, such as the ability to post a new position.
