    I worked at Marathon Health full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Best part of position was longer appointments times you have with patients. Marathon Health pays well and great benefits.

    Cons

    Account managers are dishonest and often twist the truth to the clinic staff. Performance issues are often not addressed in a timely manner if at all which leads to clinician and staff burnout. Safety and quality surveillance in the health centers are rarely monitored.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. After all, they are intelligent and highly skilled. They are aware when they aren’t being told the truth.

    I worked at Marathon Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Always lots of food and drinks available

    Cons

    I was hired as both an APP and a clinic manager. As the manager I thought it was my job to correct problems if they arose. I'm a retired military officer and have been a PA for 37 years (at that time) with much background in management, so when a trend of clinic bullying arose I addressed. I was fired for doing so. No, no corrective discuss. No chat about different methods to use. Just a phone call and fired -- pack your...

    Advice to Management

    Isn't it self-evident, the advise? Management doesn't fire someone with a phone call without an investigation into the problem. I will admit that the administrator involved was stressed at the time due to many rapid changes, but then that administrator might have called in another asset to examine the situation.

    Pros

    This company promotes team-spirit through their Ambassador program, which is evident in their support, encouragement, and genuine concern for their clients. No question is too small, no problem is too big, that cannot be worked out through teamwork and guidance. Promotion of health, and the time to engage patients in their own healthcare and health goals, is what many of us dreamed of when we first started our careers....

    Cons

    I have been working at Marathon Health full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This company genuinely cares about the people who use our services and the staff who work for them. I am encouraged to try new things and be innovative. My boss acknowledges he is not the font of all knowledge and will re-direct me to the person who prioritizes in my particular question. I love my co-workers, they are funny, caring, and dedicated. My opinion matters.

    Cons

    Truthfully, this is the first company I have worked for that I can say there have been no cons. Everyone is willing to listen and find solutions.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, just a thank you for allowing me to be apart of such an amazing team!

    I have been working at Marathon Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *The first company I've ever worked for who TRULY cares about its people *Good schedule *benefits *management is great! *No micro managing *private practice feel (small work environment) * Open to suggestions *A company that is not afraid of change *Advancement opportunities, even in the Medical Assistant role which is rare I could go forever!

    Cons

    After reading up on the company and going through the hiring process I thought there was going to be a catch. I honestly don't have anything negative to say. If I absolutely had to pick something I would say it would be nice to have another MA in the building sometimes but that is based on our customers needs. My providers are very nice and down to earth so enjoy working with them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Maybe help start the conversation about personal development!
