    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at OrthoNet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked from home, decent pay, pleasant people to work with (most).

    Cons

    Micromanagement by team leaders/managers. Increased work demands without explanation. Needed to work more hours to meet quotas for cases. Getting time off was difficult and not fair. No real opportunity to advance in the role.

    Advice to Management

    Redesign the system used for work documentation to make the job easier. It started out to be a nice job, but got worse over time because of antiquated systems and double documentation. Increase time off and overtime pay opportunities.

    I worked at OrthoNet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    none, I have nothing nice to say

    Cons

    unethical, unresponsive, nothing nice to say

    Advice to Management

    This company consistently issues denials for previously recommended therapy by surgeons, primary care doctors, and by our staff, due to similar "body parts", similar "injuries in the past" and a multitude of other problems. They are unethical. This is illegal to not approve visits for patients who need treatment deemed medically necessary by Medicare guidelines.

    I worked at OrthoNet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A few co workers were great. A couple of leaders were very smart.

    Cons

    The technology is far behind the times. There is no training for business, management skills. Every department makes up their own style. The company lacks diversity on senior management team. All old white men and the CEO won’t even say hello to you if you greet him.

    Advice to Management

    Rip off the bandaid quickly and merge with Optum as fast as possible.

    I worked at OrthoNet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The compensation for some is good.

    Cons

    There really isn't room for development in this company unless you are of a fairer complexion and liked. Depending on that, you will get flexibility to do what you please. If you are a minority it seems as if you are only suited for lower level positions. For clinical staff there is no type of education or learning opportunities. They call themselves the "leader" yet they are regressive in their thinking.. Their... technologies and websites are ancient and they don't really care about integration within departments. It seems that everyone's motto is "This is the way we've always done it" and they don't want to listen to those who are actually doing the work that allows them to make all their decisions. There is a true disconnect between upper mgmt and the rest of them. They do not offer any worthwhile benefits to their employees (tuition reimbursement, etc). There aren't any incentives to go to this job other than the money. It is a dead end for your career unless you just want a paycheck. The culture here is terrible and it really starts to affect you if you let it. It takes active mental work to keep a positive outlook.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying your staff! Stop treating them as if they owe you their life for being employed there. IF you worked to make the environment a better place, maybe you wouldn't have to! Treat them like people and treat everyone fairly and equally. What is good for some is good for all.

    I worked at OrthoNet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Room to grow in company. My supervisor Lonnie was very cool and laid back. Long as you did your work and came to work on time he had no issues.

    Cons

    Commute and pay. For that position I think all employees should make at least17 starting.

    I worked at OrthoNet part-time

    Pros

    Friendly Colleagues (for the most part) and a spacious parking lot

    Cons

    Working at this company is tantamount to professional suicide. Lack of autonomy/micro management of the minutia together with the complete lack of upward mobility or maket-rate compensation makes this company an awful place to work. The upper management believes that everyone is replaceable and does nothing to retain good, hard working employees.

    Advice to Management

    Arrive at the realization that employee satisfaction and engagement has a direct impact on profitability. The market will eliminate you eventually if you continue to live on the trailing (rather than leading) edge.
