Pros

Pretty flexible scheduling, low-pressure if you have the right staff. All about appointment book management and production

Cons

Regional managers (practice development managers) get to do the real managing. BMs mostly ensure high sales....and that's about it. Not a lot of analyzing reports or budgeting or any other useful skills to add on your résumé. Lots of HR violations.

Advice to Management

Give BMs more responsibility so they feel less like sales managers. Get a stronger HR department.

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation. Good office people. Fast paced. Exposed to and learn new things every day.

    Cons

    Emphasis on production. Expectations seem a bit high initially. Lots of chatter about bonuses, but it's still just chatter. We shall see.
