    I worked at Jackson & Coker full-time

    Pros

    Shiny building with all the bells and whistles for Jackson Healthcare (difference between them and Jackson & Coker). And why do you think they offer all of those "perks" but J&C doesn't offer anything special in addition to it...

    Cons

    Where to start.... - The job itself is in a saturated market which makes it hard for doctors to remember who called them and they will take the better paying offer (makes sense). The way J&C acts (they ride the coattails of Jackson Healthcare) you’re competing against your own company at Locum Tenens! - Severely lacking with technology for employees. You’ll become a wiz at excel since when you get started, you have to track down and badger coworkers for info on the doctors you submitted as a lead. Be prepared to waste a huge amount of your time, 35%+ of each day, keeping up with this so you get paid correctly at the end of the month. - That's right NO automated payment process for the "Search Consultants" which you could be stuck in for 1+ year(s). - Prematurely celebrates wins. Real Recruiters know it doesn’t mean anything if the person doesn’t start working, but here they congratulate and hype up the same people on getting the verbal acceptance vs. an actual start. - Too much emphasis on quantity of phone calls vs. quality. - Management claims they want your feedback, but will use it against you at a later time (like to help them fire you which they did to a high producing and 2+ year tenured co-worker who was no longer happy). - Get ready to be blasted back to the high school clique days along with gossip that everyone, including management chimes in on. There are no secrets here… except amongst the managers who leave you guessing on what’s going to be their next sleazy plan to get you cranking out more phone calls, or who is going to get fired or is leaving next.

    Advice to Management

    Tried giving advice/feedback and it wasn't well received. Rather not waste time giving advice and let their own destructive behaviors and poor management continue to bite them on their own. Advice to potential candidates: Be prepared to make 70+ calls a day, listen to sob stories from doctors, be surrounded by cattiness and strange cliques, favoritism, constant wondering what management is talking about (they partake in the office gossip too), and overall weird work environment.

    I worked at Jackson & Coker full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salaries, overall team building and nice office, but that's about it.

    Cons

    They say they wanted change but really, the DON'T and if you try to make any changes, even if you KNOW they will benefit them, they just don't like it. They are very much a VERY CONSERVATIVE company entrenched in their myopic view of their industry - and even when beaten by the competition, they don't like to learn from people that know or the competitors. They also say they hire and want to retain good employees....but from my experience they have a massive churn on employees. If you're a slacker that just want to do what you're told...This might be for you, but if you're an above average performer, well, I'd avice you to look at other options.

    Advice to Management

    It is 2019 and not 1951 anymore! People want flexible work arrangements and many like progress.
