    I worked at Maxim Physician Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leader I had taught me everything I now know, and I would not be where I am without that person. I enjoyed my work family while I was there, and we did things as a group all the time, if one failed, we all failed. You can learn what you need to, to succeed in the next position. I would not recommend MPR for a long term position. Good culture, but a very young crowd.

    Cons

    The commission structure drastically changed- they took something from 25% to 2%, in 6 months timing. They will fire you if you are not meeting your numbers, they do not give adequate training for the position either, so if you arent familiar with healthcare, I suggest you read up and learn before because not everything is explained and they throw you to the wolves. Leadership consists of a good old boys club, women are not advanced in production, and certain people will be handed things, without having to the work or put the time in. When you ask management about advancement, they will jerk you around for months or years at a time saying you can move up, when in all reality you can not, unless you are favored.

    Advice to Management

    Consideration, respect, appreciation is needed, especially the management not in a day to day role. There you feel disrespected, not worth your value, unless you have the 1 good leader, out of 4.

    I worked at Maxim Physician Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with internally, laid back environment, fewer hours than working on the nurse staffing side, great place to learn the basics of recruiting, comp plan is still decent, just not what it used to be. Everyone likes to drink and have a good time - even on the company stock trip.

    Cons

    Instability!!!! In the past year, Maxim the parent company has had several changes that have affected their business lines, honestly it feels like they are going broke, and they don't communicate with their employees or providers, everything is a big secret. They cancelled all the Christmas parties, fired almost the entire C-Suite and upper management that had been with the organization for years, the "expensive ones." The Corporate level management excluded the in house management from being part of any decisions that were negatively impacting their employees and then either fired or demoted all the leaders who didn't "hop on the ship", most of whom had met or exceeded all their goals throughout their tenureship with the organization. There is no opportunity for advancement - literally 2 people were promoted the whole time I was there. There are no raises - they say if you want a raise, make more phone calls, even to keep up with inflation and cost of living. Benefits are pretty standard. Comp plan is not bad if you're new to the industry, if you know what you're doing, don't bother - go to Delta where you get the culture and you get PAID! It seems like MPR is turning into what Maxim Staffing Solutions has a reputation for being - a "boys club" where overworking and underpaying their recruiters is the norm, there was actually a law suit about employee hours in 2009 in California. They also got in trouble with the office of the inspector general for defrauding the government via medicare/medicaid so all internal and external employees must take recurrent training regarding fraud, harassment and proper business etiquette - try selling that to a doctor! When I first started at MPR, there were people who had been there 5, 8, 10 years, almost all of those people are gone now. The company did an entire reset and pushed out almost everyone who knew what they were doing except for a select group of 9, 6 recruiters and 3 account managers, who were offered to more than double their base to keep them on board. People are constantly worried they are going to get fired. Maybe that will all settle out under the new leadership? But if they follow the principles of MSS, my guess is it will get worse.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck, I hope it works out for you. I wish you the best. I just wish you had more appreciation for your employees, ALL of your employees. You don't make money unless they do their jobs well, and happy employees work harder than scared ones.

    I worked at Maxim Physician Resources full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Through most of my tenure at Maxim, I was afforded the opportunity to make a six-figure plus income with the only limitation being my personal level of effort. That has changed and the latest shift is toward younger and cheaper labor.

    Cons

    The leaders and the managers at Maxim Physician Resources are so very far in over their heads in terms of maturity and skill-level that most of the general staff considers them a joke. Morale is low and nobody seems to work very hard.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is not fit for print.

    Pros

    45 minute smoke breaks are the norm.

    Cons

    By far the most unprofessional work environment I've ever been around. The desk tops only go about 8 inches tall so you see, hear, and smell every obscenity. The lack of privacy at your desk is supposed to support mutual teamwork, encouragement, team building, YEAH RIGHT!!!!
    Money used to be good here but changes have made this job a perfect job for a non-motivated college grad that now needs a job.

    Advice to Management

    Start making some "dials!!!!" instead of pretending you "understand recruiting" when you haven't done much in at least 5 years.

    I have been working at Maxim Physician Resources as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent hourly rate (no bennies, though). They don't mind if I negotiate my schedule with the facility. Online training so there are no trips in to the office.

    Cons

    Limited number of contracts working only with adults available in my area. My agent does not seem to have the autonomy to fully represent me.

    I have been working at Maxim Physician Resources full-time

    Pros

    Morale is the best I've ever experience at a company. From the VP down to the Director down to Management they are very positive and upbeat. Great energy in the office. Capability to make tons of money.

    Cons

    Credentialing support is extremely understaffed and underpaid for their work. Consultants have to obtain weekly timesheets for payroll. At this point with technology, there's got too be a better way to do that automatically. It would save time and help curb data entry mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Pay your support staff more money. They are crucial to the business.

    Pros

    Great managers, unbelievable support by the director and VP, endless earning potential, commission is high compared to industry standards, great health insurance, strong support staff, flexibility in schedule, good mix of young and old employees that make a great atmosphere and you are paid weekly along with commission

    Cons

    This job can be stressful but it is fun. The base pay is a little low compared to other companies but if you have a strong pipeline it makes up for it in commission.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The company is growing like crazy and with all the healthcare changes its only going to grow.
