    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that it takes time to build a patient-base for testing and treatment. It's not something that happens overnight.

    Pros

    Significant potential for anyone to make an impact whether you're a technician out in the field helping patients or a corporate employee working to improve a process or come up with a great new idea.

    Cons

    Young companies go through significant growth and change. Just like an adolescent hitting its growth spurts, there are growing pains along the way. You must be willing to go with the flow and accept change as a natural part of life or you will get easily frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the patients' and your employees' needs at the forefront of your mind and success will naturally come.

    Pros

    This is a great entry level position straight out of college. Good salary and benefits, and they train you very thoroughly.

    Cons

    The forms used in daily operations change often, and it's difficult to keep up with the updated information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish management would only update forms once a month. When they are being updated constantly, it makes things a bit confusing.

    Pros

    Working with patients and seeing their symptoms improve with allergy injections. Often it is life changing and wonderful to see them regain their quality of life!

    Cons

    Working with the children who do not understand the benefits but scream out in horror due to having injections

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not about the numbers but patient care. Each lab should not be responsible for bringing in more patients but should be up to the company itself to promote and advertise on t.v. We are not in advertising we are Allergy Specialists. Let your advertising crew (if you have one) do that for us. Corporate should be in charge of that (as are most "normal" corporations).

    Pros

    Mediocre Compensation
    Relevant Services for patients
    Decent Benefits
    Good experience for entry level job seekers
    Nice work-life balance

    Cons

    Leadership is all over the map- excessive turnover this past year
    Corporate Office changes procedures and processes every week
    No communication between the field and the corporate office
    Executive Staff is non-existent (everyone is leaving, but no one explains why)
    Financial issues are a constant conversation piece
    Every area of the company is managed differently- no collaboration between managers and directors
    Sales staff is treated like royalty even though half of the team is not selling
    Stability of the company is very shaky and the future is uncertain
    Promotion only exists from within and it's more about who you know rather than if you're qualified
    Some of management has zero experience in the area they are overseeing. Field staff has more experience than some of the managers that have been promoted
    Company morale is horrible- no one believes in the company anymore and most people are currently searching for jobs
    Good luck reaching out to corporate if you need something. Most of the corporate employees can't be bothered and forward field calls to their voicemails on a daily basis
    Expenses are being be cut for all field employees and everything is in cost savings mode
    Not a great time to join this company- beware!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think management really cares for advice. Everyone at this company is running their own ship and is keeping their fingers crossed it all works out.

    I worked at United Allergy Services full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were great. The bonuses are nice when you meet you exceed your quota. The IT works and you will see a difference in the patient. This position allows you to gain hands on patient experience and you get to become a part of the patient's treatment plan. Most of the providers are not too familiar with IT and so often times they look for you to be the expert.

    Cons

    I did not realize how much of a sales job this position is. The IT is beneficial to the patients and has worked wonders for some of my former patients, but there is a constant push for numbers.

    I have been working at United Allergy Services

    Pros

    If cinic is slow, and you like slacking then yu may get a lot of free time. Training is paid for a whole week, you can work there even with a business degree! If clinic has a lot of pTients your day goes on by fast! Great free insurance and benefits

    Cons

    SALES DRIVEN! Its not all about health of pTients, basically test and convience them to take therapy for 1 whole year o f injections. Lots of pressure from top bosses.

    Pros

    -pay was pretty good for an entry level position
    -flexibility
    -clinical experiences

    Cons

    -no job security
    -working as a clinical allergy specialist you have the tendency to move around a lot not always in one location
    - If contract is terminated with the PCP's office your chances in losing your job is very high
    -very BORING!! at times if you don't have any patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more research when you are placing allergy labs in medical offices. This will reinforce job security for your employees as well as create a lucrative business for both the company and the contracted offices.

    Great entry level job

    I worked at United Allergy Services

    Pros

    Job is great for recent college graduates. Great introduction to patient care. Decent pay and benefits and flexible hours depending on the office you are placed in.

    Cons

    There is not much room for growth. Upper level management/training/traveling positions are limited. Job can also seem more like sales at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis should be placed on patient care and well being rather than sales and numbers.
