    Pros

    This is a good position if you like to sit and not move around too much. Mostly administrative work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it will be hard to leave the desk, so if you need a bathroom back, you will need someone to come break you. If you sit too long, your back starts to hurt.

    Pros

    Company is very employee based and cares a lot for their employees, great benefits

    Cons

    Pay is not the best

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees and what they need, we are just as stressed on a daily basis so try to ask our point of view first

    Pros

    like the clinic I work in love to avoid upper management. try to ignore their unrealistic goals as much as possible and because I am not sure they know we even exist most of the time we are left to our own devises for now.

    Cons

    upper management and the CEO are completely out of touch with any semblance of day to day medical practice. when I have tried to participate in changing policy , the upper management has actually talked about the doctors and nurses as if they were chattle that needed to be coddled and how they could "get them to do things" that were above what was needed , even though we were sitting in the room with them.!it was pretty insulting. so I don't bother with that anymore and just try improving my patients lives and while I continue to practice evidence based medicine , I won't just order tests to " get that check mark done!" let's get real people. you have enough pull now that you should be pushing back on the wastefulness that some of these supposed "quality measures " are supposed to be bringing. Have you noticed how many have dissappeared over the years due to lack of evidence? corporate medicine has a limited shelf life and I will be happy when it dies.

    Advice to Management

    Hi , I am in the room. you can't cajole me to do unethical , untested work no matter how you try to pawn it off. Think about who you would like to have your mother , father , sister , child see as a doctor the next time you make a decision about practice decisions. I expect that if you truly reflected on what you said and what truly happened , it would not be what you try to have us do to our patients. work harder on efficiency get rid of the 5 layers of administrators that have been added in the last 15 years telling the people who actually earn the money how to do their job and redirect them to something meaningful. TOO MANY MEETINGS! too many administrators replace them with social workers, home health aids , drivers people who help human beings. get rid of the town meetings not helpful, skip the rah rah junk most of the front line workers DO NOT BENEFIT you are just patting your own backs

    Pros

    Good place to become an overworked, under-appreciated, employee who lacks essential resources required to succeed and enjoys working through resentments.

    Cons

    Management is absent, denies blatant needs for staffing increase, does not prioritize or value employees, no efforts toward employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees , give them resources they need to help them succeed at their job which, in turn, establishes a greater sense of purpose and job satisfaction. Unless you're ok with huge employee turnover rates. Without this, all of the good ones will continue to leave you and your reputation will plunder.

    Pros

    Great starting pay and opportunities to advance to different positions.

    Cons

    I guess this is only a con for employees, but they are really strict when it comes to sick calls, time off, uniforms etc.
