    I worked at Examination Management Services part-time

    Pros

    Most allthe hours are day shift, you have all the holidays off (without pay). You can only work work part time unless you are lucky enough to be one of their selecte few they will put full time.

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work or how dependable you are you can not get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your staff would like to be able to enjoy time with family and not worry about bills being paid. They would like benifits with full time PTO and and sick time also.

    I have been working at Examination Management Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a more relaxed and flexible company before it was bought by a Venture Capitalist Company (VCC). Lot of lay offs in past 6 months and more focus on cost cutting than company/employee growth. Sold one of the profit making divisions last year after the new management took over. VCC mantra is to show it profitable and sell it again. Not sure what the future holds for EMSI

    Cons

    Its not the same company which every one liked working for. No growth or promotions. Promotions are not based on how well you perform or contribute, but how close you are to the managers.

    Advice to Management

    None. They don't care

    Pros

    The correct name of the company is Examination Management Services (EMSI) The pros was working remote from home on varies companies accounts.

    Cons

    They need a person designated for all training purposes. And that person should be available at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair, helpful and available more.

    Pros

    It was a job and there was plenty of work.

    Cons

    Many changes and reorganizations in a very short time, took more work than they had staff to handle at all levels, very stressful and toxic environment, field staff and supervisors very overworked, underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your repeated mistakes, there is a reason so many people have come and gone.

    Pros

    Pro-$125.00 per visit-they will not schedule 30 hours as agreed. Do not depend on this company for your only income. You will not get paid correctly!

    Cons

    They will not pay you for the work that you have done. There was one week where no one received a paycheck. They were unapologetic. For God sake pay attention to your pay stubs. The will not support you with faculty equipment. I had to buy my own supplies. They are immediately ready to penalize you for things beyond your control. The oversight of the examiners are poor. They will send corrections back to you that are not wrong which hold up the process. You are suppose to work 30 hours week, they will schedule you for 10 -15 hours...a waste of time. The turnover rate is ongoing. They will threaten you for things beyond your control . They are quick to fault you but they never take acceptance of their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more graceful, apologetic, and understanding to your Field Nurse Practitioners and PA's. We provide the revenue for your company to stay in existence.

    Pros

    Lots of different work options, travel , good commission pay if boss don't change to hourly pay

    Cons

    Horrible Branch manager. Pay is always changing. Work is not distributed evenly snoring employees. Branch takes a portion of mileage expense paid by cooperate (they have no entitlement to your mileage pay for miles put on your personal vehicle.) Boss picks on certain employees then asks them to do far away/ low paying jobs because the feel obligated, pressured, or minipulated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut of your nose inspite of your face, your going to get sued due to treatment and actions from the Branch manager. All Branch managers should be certified in all field of company services. Cooperate should reach out do the employees to check job performance of Branch manager as well as any other concerns they should be aware of.

    I have been working at Examination Management Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked as a full time employee with EMSI for 3+ years, this company offers growth potential for anyone that is willing to actually work for it. The majority of the current Management Team throughout both Waco locations have all been internal promotions.
    The company offers Medical Benefits to any employee that works over 30+ hours per week, so most part time employees start out with it.
    The Insurance Services area offers a Progressive Pay Model- this allows new hires to come into the company, train, then be reviewed each quarter to receive a bump in pay or move from part time to full time status.

    Cons

    Not really sure if I should list this as a con but, the Attendance Policy is strict and tends to be a major reason in the turnover of employees. In the defense of EMSI, the Attendance Policy is explained when hired. The Central Park building is very full, it would be nice to have additional space.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for long term employees
