    I have been working at Medcor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Medcor for 5+ years. For a private only company, they truly are family and care about your growth and development. I am definitely not a number, but a person at Medcor. They do their best to keep up with industry compensation and benefits. They changed health benefits in 2018; it was a little rough at first, but seems to be getting better. No one likes change. I have not experienced a disruption in my coverage.

    Cons

    It would be nice to hear from the Senior Leadership team on a regular basis. Keep their employees in the know.

    I have been working at Medcor part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a per diem employee, there are usually lots of hours available
    Work environment is relatively laid back but that can change at a moment's notice

    Cons

    Much of the equipment and supplies are lower quality/outdated
    Expected to go to many different sites for orientation even though you may only ever work a shift or two there

    I have been working at Medcor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Potential to be a fulfilling?

    Cons

    Tons of turnover of nurses and management and with new managers come new changes which is not a bad thing but current managers over promise and under deliver. Scheduler is extremely difficult to work with and calling in sick is punishable even if you provide a note from a doctor or were in the hospital. It sounded like a dream job and if you are ok with being just a number to a company you will enjoy it. The charting software is very frustrating and the training is ridiculous to cater to it. I will be quitting very soon if situations do not improve.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the job the nurses do and do it instead of making rules that make our job harder.
    Increase the pay. I made more as a new graduate out of nursing school.

    I worked at Medcor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented people dedicated to navigating people to the right care with total transparency. Medcor continues to improve their processes to stay one step ahead. I had the pleasure to work with the most talented, caring, and incredible people that truly believe in what they do. Medcor was a great family to work for that supports their advocates professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Depending on your experience and expertise there are limits on advancements within the company due to their size.

    Advice to Management

    Great teams are a reflection of their leaders.

    I worked at Medcor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Growing company with potential
    -Nice wellness program
    -Corporate perks (workout room, snacks, cookouts)
    -Good opportunity to get corporate experience
    -Innovative idea with an inspirational vision
    In some departments:
    -Work from home, care about work/life balance
    -Value your opinion and your work

    Cons

    In some departments
    -Set you up to fail, sink or swim
    -Lack of communication but lots of micromanagement
    -Ask for initiative but never guide you in the right direction
    -Remote employees feel disconnected from company
    -Promote undeserving people or lack of a promotion opportunity
    GENERALLY
    -Care for clients much more than employees
    -Uncompetitive pay, benefits and PTO are a joke
    -Lots of turnover, talented but overworked middle management
    -Blatant nepotism

    Advice to Management

    -Offer more competitive salary, better PTO and a real benefits package
    -Listen to employees, let them expand on their ideas, not just yours
    -Better communication, trust the employees you hire
    -Promote innovators and people with ideas, eliminate the nepotism
    -Find better ways to include remote employees in company events
    -Make sure your employees know how valuable they are, reward hard work and do it with a REAL reward
    -Ditch the western thing. You are based in Illinois, not the west. Competitors are laughing at you. No one likes wearing the cowboy hats. One of Medcor’s subsidiaries is Native American owned!

    Pros

    Good company overall, no micromanagement, you have to be comfortable working on your own, ok salary..

    Cons

    you're given a tremendous amount of responsibility which certainly doesnt match the pay nor the money the company makes off you. Tremendous turnover at corporate, and if you need benefits, the package they give you is worthless in the NY area. Pay doesnt match the industry in the more expensive-to-live regions like the NYC area.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, the job market is for employees right now, specially the qualified and experienced ones, pay market rates..

    I worked at Medcor full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on the job site (locations vary) there is the potential while working in medicine to not have to work nights, weekends, and holidays. This is definitely site and client specific, and shouldn't be expected across the board.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. The upper management has a tendency to make promises and not follow through. TONS of micro management. Poor salaries. The benefits changed while I was employed and not for the better. Tons of top level turnover. The good old boys club is definitely alive and well here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your site managers and pay your people what they're actually worth. Stick to ethical and moral practices. Stop playing favorites.
