    Pros

    Some people were nice. I liked the coffee machine but it would break down all the time. The fruit was nice but the bananas were gone right away. Walks were nice too.

    Cons

    This place is all politics. If you know someone then you will get paid better and get away with not doing your job. People who actually work hard are taken for granted and not paid what they're worth. This company will tear you down. The management really doesn't have a clue about what they're doing and push everything down on the lower employees. They will make excuses to what they think you're worth. They care way more about saving money than they do keeping talent and reducing turnover. Speaking of turnover they have a lot here...that's what happens when you don't appreciate and give back to your employees. This company is truly poorly run. They need to wake up and realize you need employees more than they need you and to stop pinching pennies and look at the overall picture.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees and pay them what they're worth. You will attract high talented employees and save money by reducing turnover. Really look at who does the work and who is just pushing things down to the lower level employees.

    Stop making horrible rules like no eating snacks at your desk. Turns out your just making your employees unhappy rather than healthier.

    Pros

    The company has the ability to lead the industry. Growth is occurring. Success is possible. The past can be repeated. The coworkers who have hung in there are some of the greatest people you could ever meet. The clients are diverse and interesting. The job is challenging and stretches your mind. The Triage division is immensely innovative and the best division in the company.

    Cons

    The best laid plans can sometimes go a bit off the rail. The top talent leaves at the hands of being ignored. Young leaders are kept under the finger of executives. Ideas are smashed rather than cultivated. Hard work is expected but ignored, so don't expect a thank you, expect to self soothe and work harder to earn advancement. Let the middle managers lead and stop stifling them, they are who we want to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Ask, then listen. Listen, then act. Just because it's not your opinion doesn't mean that it isn't valid. You need the folks that walk away to find appreciation. I fear that more will follow. Find that passion from the past...tap into it...quick.

    In the event of an emergency, you are on your own. Must establish and maintain good working relationships with a vast amount of clients and staff.

    Pros

    Working from home. Decent benefits. Some good coworkers. Certain benefits for seniority.

    Cons

    Low pay. Antiquated equipment and software. Poor IT support. Micromanagement. A cliquish management paradigm. Ridiculously poor trainers. Corporate mentality with no heart.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have management experience and degrees, not a buddy. Value staff, not bottom line. Be truly transparent. Have a heart not a mission statement.

    Pros

    great work like balance and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Stagnant career with no growth or pay raise. Lacks motivation and any leadership. Negativity surrounds this work place. Only connected Family members get promotion without any qualification.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force employees to post 5 stars reviews using the HR. BBQ's and potluck for team building feels fake and annoying. would prefer career and salary growth instead. Recognize contributions and new ideas

    Pros

    Unsurpassed level of supportive staff at corporate office there to help you literally any time, any where, for anything. SBU's, Trainers, HR, Recruiting, are all so extremely helpful, if they don't have the answer to your questing they can tell you exactly who will. They are incredibly fair and supportive when you are faced with tough situations at your site. SBU's are regularly in contact with you, even if it's just to say "hey, how are things going?" Extremely compassionate company with values they truly believe and stand by. They have many employee centered programs, incentives, and challenges that encourage you to also work on your health and wellness. They offer great medical coverage for full time employees, dental, and vision too! 401k, FSA, PTO, and holidays. They recognize and express appreciation for your hard work, and are there to support you every step of the way. Medical Administrators are given tons of training and opportunities to further education. This is the firs place I've personally felt truly valued as an employee.You have the opportunity to work at a wide array of sites all over the country and even outside the US. Medcor works with many big corporations opening lots of opportunities for you. It really is Better @ Medcor!

    Cons

    If you are Nurse Crachet, lazy, rude, have poor morale or can't be an effective team player, this job is not for you. If you like to work hard, are honest, and love working with people, you will love working at Medcor!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your support!

    Pros

    Usually the team you train with has a bond and stays in communication

    Cons

    The management selectively enforces its rules and policies .
    The pay is under par
    The call center staff does not practice what they preach to new nurses.
    They will use selective enforcement of their protocols to get rid of people they don't want.
    This is a fact not an opinion from a disgruntled employee
    Ethical dilemas /possible problems in not requiring nurses to be licensed in the states in which they are practicing nursing
    Reducing adult women to tears during training is a commmon practice/ FACT

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old school management
    Pay attention to or quit enabling workplace bullying
    Get new legal council ...they apparently do not read the bulletins to employers from their states' boards of nursing
