    I have been working at United Allergy Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have made some great professional contacts here that I plan on getting in touch with once this ship sinks. Unfortunately for the company, none are management that are currently here. The good managers wised up and left.

    Cons

    We just went through layoffs for the 3rd time and the company has only been around for 5 years. We literally just did this in 2013 and now again in 2014. Nice touch doing it so close to the holidays (you stay classy, UAS!) Morale at the office is so low now. Nobody smiles, people are walking on egg-shells. Except for the smug executives that clearly don't have a clue as to what they are doing. Because if they did know what they were doing, then this wouldn't have happened FOR THE 3rd TIME IN 5 YEARS!!!

    And a quick note to anyone that sees this review and compares it to all the "positive reviews": I have been there when they instruct employees to go onto Glassdoor to add positive reviews to push down the negative ones. Yup. Pretty messed up, right? Watch closely, because as soon as they get wind of this review, it will get pushed down with five "I love working for UAS" reviews. Don't believe me? Watch.

    One last thing, the pay is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice isn't to management. It's to all the quality people that work here in dead end jobs. Get out! I plan to in the next few months.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    This is a great entry level opportunity. You get all kinds of experience by being responsible for your own clinic. This company hire within, so it offers a lot of room for growth. It offers great benefits as well.

    Cons

    Frequent policy changes.

    I worked at United Allergy Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work itself is mundane, Get exposed to a variety of roles, exciting during the first two weeks. You become jack of all trades but master of none. Decent benefits. The base pay is decent in this economic climate, but horrible compared to the amount of revenue you are required to generate each month

    Cons

    Nick Hollis is no longer the CEO.

    Over half of upper management has left in the recent months.

    It's a business model based on dash and run. Extract as much money as possible using from patients' insurances at a clinic. As soon as the money flow slows, the contract is terminated.

    The one week training in San Antonio is useless, no useful information is taught. Unless you are thrown into a supportive clinic, you have no support. The company preaches patient care, but there is no care involved. Managers will tell you anything for you to get tests and conversions, so insurance companies can be billed. The accuracy of the test is extremely unreliable. Many false positive results have been produced. The one year regimen of shots is billed at the beginning essentially scamming insurance policies. More than half of the field employees have no science background, and they just spill out the information from corporate without any analytical abilities. Anyone who questions corporate's practice is scrutinized immediately. Marketing material sent out from corporate cites questionable studies.Regardless of the number of allergy tests you sell or convert, the pay remains the same. The bonus is based off a point system.The development program is a T shaped diagram which looks exactly like a pyramid scheme flipped upside down. The only upward mobility present is if one is willing to travel all over the state or nation.

    If you have formal university science or any type of healthcare training, this is not the job for you. Management wants you to use every method to get patients tested and blindside them to sign up for shots. If the patient does not want to pursue the treatment, management expects you call them repeatedly until they say "yes"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not state to future prospects this is a healthcare position. Maybe there would not be a high turn over rate. Also focus on the current employees and reconsider the failing business model you have.

    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.
