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

    Pros

    Finally a job I can see myself during forever! Bye bye bedside burnout. This role let’s me be a nurse without the hospital politics and exhausting physical demands.

    Cons

    Only having 8 hour shifts is behind the times. Would love a 10 or 12 option since I cannot change for just over a year.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better schedule options.

    I have been working at Medcor full-time

    Pros

    Nice change of pace as compared to typical health care jobs, great co-workers, good support from immediate supervisor and training.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, cannot retain staff, senior management does not care or recognize team in a genuine way.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure who is responsible for current leaders but since the change work is no longer fun and most of us no longer feel appreciated.

    I worked at Medcor full-time

    Pros

    I think the only pro is being able to work from home so you can control the lighting and environment. They offer some pretty great wellness incentives, that’s about it.

    Cons

    This company micromanages every single thing a nurse does. If you’re taking a little longer to wrap up a call and take notes, you’ll have the supervisor messaging you asking what’s taking so long. You get an attitude from the majority of the supervisors if you ask to use the bathroom in your own home (even if it’s basically the first time you’ve ever gone on a nonscheduled break and it only takes 1 minute). There’s no flexibility at all, you basically cannot take vacations if you’re new. They nitpick on the most ridiculous things while in training.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, only hire people you can really trust. Train the shift supervisors to not guilt trip for asking for a 1 minute bathroom run. An employee should never feel guilty for asking to use the restroom quickly in their own home. You need to find a better balance for remote employees.

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

    Pros

    Work from home, select your own shift, only handle one client at a time, good wellness incentives, decent benefits

    Cons

    -Terrible PTO (only 13 days per year until you've been there 5 years and they don't grant requests in full unless you submit it a year in advance). PTO doesn't carry over, & it's not earned based on hours worked like most hospitals.
    -Poor pay for an RN at only $26 per hour. After working at a hospital you will most likely have to work OT to bring home what you're used to.
    -Inadequate leave policies. Triage RNs are not eligible for FMLA leave. They employ many young women, but refuse to provide any maternity leave. Instead, they allow a short term, unpaid disability leave with no guarantee of a job when you return.
    -Micromanagement. You're constantly monitored and only get a 20-min and a 10- min break in an 8-hr shift. Any extra requests for getting up for restroom breaks or a glass of water are frowned upon at best, and at worst, penalized.

    Advice to Management

    As a company, you should be ashamed that nurses are having to beg coworkers to cover shifts for them because you refuse to grant them a day off for their child's surgery, with more than enough advance notice given.

    I've had nurses offer to pay me an additional $20 per hour to take their shift because they're so desperate to not have to cancel their $10,000 Disney vacation because you won't give them 3 hours off on a Wednesday. That's pathetic, and that is your fault. If you really appreciated your employees you would never let that happen.

    You are taking a group of people who are used to submitting a schedule request 2-3 months in advance so they can plan around their lives and tying them down to a computer with no schedule flexibility whatsoever and no real PTO (offering 13 days per year but refusing to grant it when requested does NOT count as giving us PTO). No wonder you're hemorrhaging nurses out the eyeballs.

    Many of your RNs are Millennials, and we value freedom, flexibility, and spontaneity over Spartan schedules and micromanagement. We want to be able to travel with our families. At this job, we have no possibility of ever taking off more than a day on a weekend because there is so little PTO available and what we have is never granted in full.

    Many of us would benefit from a mental health day every now and then, because the micromanagement and angry, rude clients really get to you after a while. You want to decrease ECW? Add more breaks.

    It seems like management is so far removed from the wants and habits of nurses that they have no idea how any of us really feel. They're wondering why they lose thousands constantly training nurses who leave as soon as they discover how this company really works. Take an active role in obtaining anonymous suggestions and feedback so we don't feel like we'll be targeted if we speak openly.

    Change your scheduling methods. Requiring every other weekend is fine - that's normal for nursing. Maybe set 3 shifts (3am-11am, 11am-7pm, 7pm-3am), allow nurses to select their shift, and make the schedule so that we can request time off 2 months in advance and actually be granted that time. You can still offer incentive hours. It's very obvious that the schedule is all over the place with you guys trying to fit people in according to their specified available times. We don't want such huge flexibility with specific hours available... We want flexibility with our time off so we can have lives too.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about Medcor is the people at the clinics, the next best thing was leaving this job

    Cons

    I have no idea how this company is still in business! HR is clueless, management team is the bottom of the barrel. All the good employees leave in under a year. I would not want my worse enemy working for this company. If you have ANY other options of jobs, take them!!!! Here you well be under appreciated, over worked, disrespected, and under paid.

    Advice to Management

    Have all of management, including CEO, go to a Management 101 course. Actually listen to the people at the sites, stop micro managing, get rid of "The Good Ol Boy" system that is currently in place.

    Pros

    Autonomous at most locations on site. If you do your job well, you are for the most part left alone.

    Cons

    Management was very poor - no connection to those in the field. Lots of perks if you work at HQ... none for those in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to employees.
