    I worked at Onward Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AMN purchased them, because Onward under its current leader is the WORST!

    Cons

    Staff- Are disrespectful and DO NOT advocate for their staff. They are dismissive, unprofessional, and immoral.
    A gossiping group of women who's actions are covered up by their superior.
    Practices- They sent staff out to work before credentials are verified, and alter documents to achieve their objectives.
    Pay Rates- They low ball their staff so their (almost non existent profit margin) is met. They speak negatively about their parent offices (Manhattan Staff/Leadership) and will do and say anything to cover their actions.
    Payroll Coordinator - Is rude and inappropriate as well!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to AMN - Get rid of that office and your problems will be fixed! There is something to be said for candidates leaving your company to follow their recruiters WITHOUT BEING ASKED TO. It means that they feel their interest wasn't protected, NO ONE wants to work for such a company!

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

    Pros

    Recruiter involvement is stellar. Great selections of sites. Excellent benefits and support.

    Cons

    Salaries, per diem and housing allowances could be higher. Travel reimbursement is a difficult process and should be streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Consider restructuring packages to increase the total take home pay; several other agencies are offering much more attractive packages for similar placements. Improve the process on travel reimbursement; as it stands, reimbursement is difficult to obtain.

    Pros

    Great people, great company, great recruiters. Onward has the backing the industry leader, AMN, but still feels small with hands on attention from it's recruiters.

    Cons

    None. Issues will come up, but you have the support and solution focused backing of a great team.

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

    Pros

    There are no pro's that I can think of. Onward is terrible and got even worse after AMN purchased

    Cons

    Onward was bad on it's own and many employees were not happy. After AMN acquired them, it became worse. I did not think it was possible, but it happened. May employees left. The pay for internal employees is so low that basic expenses go unmet. Upper management is unprofessional and can benefit from leadership training. Management plays favorites and the politics are bringing down morale. Most recruiters are unprofessional, not trained well and end up leaving in less than 90 days.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to really value employees and start to create a better atmosphere.

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

    Pros

    They are an agency, and have a reasonable amount of positions available in most major cities. "There is a 20 word minimum on this entry."

    Cons

    Several cons!

    Terrible pay! You could make better compensation working for the hospital.

    You must fill out a lengthy application in order to speak to a recruiter.

    The recruiters are uneducated on the disciplines they are placing.

    If you have never worked agency before, you will get screwed around with here. You need to come in to this agency with expectations that must be met. All agencies are crooked to an extent. However; this agency takes the cake!

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together monetarily and ethically.
