Mission: To optimize outcomes, prevent hospitalizations, and reduce costs.
I have been working at Vohra Post-Acute Physicians full-time (Less than a year)
I've been working at Vohra for 6 months now and I am more than satisfied with my decision to accept the offer of employment because so far it has been everything I was told it would be. The healthcare industry was new to me but as a former director of business development I was comfortable accepting the challenge because management gave me their word that they would develop me in this role and groom me in the industry. During my interview the expectations were clear, so I was able to make a decision to follow through on what was expected of me in my marketing role for business development. At this juncture I am very pleased to say that the management team at Vohra has completely stood by their commitment and I'm looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead as they unfold and I embrace the potential for continued growth.
That is probably the most positive thing I can say about this company. It's a company of professionals with integrity and a commitment to excellence. Vohra Wound Physicians has been in business for 15 years and the company is positioned for exponential future growth. So, the potential for your own personal development within the company and the opportunity it offers you is there. If you show a willingness to get the job done, while following company policies and procedures which you are expected to adhere to strictly, you will not have a problem. This is definitely a very professional group and a company with a positive culture. Management totally understands that key contributors should be identified, recognized and validated for their efforts and they will mentor you and develop you to your potential within your role, whatever that is. The support is there and they are quite patient. But don't fool yourself - if you are not genuinely comfortable with what's expected of you and are not honestly prepared to stretch beyond your comfort zone to achieve what's needed in order to grow then don't take the job just for the money. The opportunity is there but not for those who are complacent or have a sense of entitlement. And that applies to physicians as well.
In my marketing role I'll strategically do what it takes to develop the physician's practice as large as they would like it to be. I find that those physicians who are most successful leave their egos at the door before they enter a facility because they realize that we are in the "people" business and understand what that means. They have a very positive "can do" attitude and are humble enough to know it's not about meeting only their needs, so they can make a lot of money. The key element they possess that makes me proud to help them grow their practice is that, like myself, they embody our mission statement: to optimize outcomes, prevent hospitalizations and reduce costs in an under-served geriatric population that so very much deserves to be treated with compassion and dignity.
So when you're doing your due diligence and you research employment reviews on Glassdoor or anywhere else for that matter, keep in mind that you shouldn't take the negative reviews too seriously because negative" people have "negative" outlooks and not surprisingly, get "negative" results specially if they are not a good fit with what they are doing for a living and feel forced to exchange their "time" for "money."
Instead ask yourself if you are "that" person who feels fulfilled when they are doing the right thing for the right reasons. If your answer is yes - then things will fall into place as they should and there's actually quite a nice pay off!
As of yet I don't feel there are really any "cons" except maybe for the fact that employees don't get much of a chance to get to know each other but that could be because we are real busy making the most of our work day in our very nice private, mostly glass, offices.
Advice to Management
My advice to management would be to continue nurturing the mentoring type work culture you are cultivating where employees are valued, recognized and validated for their efforts because it invests us in the company at a more personal level and with a stronger sense of commitment.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vohra Post-Acute Physicians (Miramar, FL).
Interview initially with the recruiter over a taped teleconference. The interview is passed on to higher ups, and if they like the interview they set you up for another interview with them.
No room for negotiations as the job is a fee-for-service reimbursement.
