    I have been working at Satellite Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    I've advanced quickly in my tenure at Satellite. I feel my work ethic and skills are valued. I appreciate being heard by corporate big wigs if I shout loud enough.

    Cons

    Clinical management is a mess. Terrible, unprofessional CMs everywhere. Middle management, such as RVPs, are mostly new and so busy being self congratulatory and protecting their titles that they don't manage anything. I guess they just throw parties or something.

    Advice to Management

    Don't worry about the reviews complaining of no chance for advancement. They're riddled with misspellings and terrible grammar, we don't want people like that in charge. Expect more from middle management and stop hiring out of the Midwest and such. Hire local.

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

    Pros

    Constantly told how great I am at my job. And how much I accomplish with no training from corporate. Praised by clinic manager and corporate as a skilled and experienced tech.

    Cons

    I won't advance in the company because regional managers won't pay a livable wage. I work over 40 hours weekly and still cant afford a studio apartment. I currently am doing 3 people's job.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of look g at the bottom line of money. Pay a livable wage. Highly unfair that workers from the FLOAT pool get paid an average of 10 dollars more than I do and can't even perform basic tasks. I am picking up slack of your Floats and I just found out they get paid 10 dollars more than me plus gas. And they get to leave work whenever they want for school or kids. Meanwhile I can't put food on my table.

    I have been working at Satellite Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of ant

    Cons

    Hire managers with disciplined RN license. Management does not take care of loyal employees. Managers gossip about corp, and ridicule area managers lack of skill.

    Advice to Management

    We don't have to be managers to have you listen and respect us. The people you have in key positions are not qualified, and lack the integrity to do the honest thing.

    Pros

    Satellite has a great mission and the culture is changing with new management. The sixth largest dialysis provider in the US and growing.

    Cons

    There has been lots of change. This can be good and bad depending on your view.

    I worked at Satellite Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice floor clinical staff, three day work weeks are flexible for spending time with your family and friends. Decent healthcare package. Some employees are Amazon. Teammates.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, they will not hire for any upper level positions unless you know someone who is corporate. Big negative for any company.

    The idea of a three day work week that Satellite Healthcare tries to sell to you is a lie. The pay is not enough to live off of. Be prepared to have another job because in this day and age, $22 is kind of a slap in the face for everything g you will be dealing with at Satellite Healthcare.

    I personally get payed $18 after 7 years of employment there. At the time of this review, even $18 is something that still has to be approved by upper management so I will surely be taking them to court over this matter.

    Do not work here if you want to feel like you are making a difference. Patient care is something that should not be taken lightly yet this company makes you feel like cutting corners constantly, which is very unsafe. Give your employees the tools and time we need to give proper, safe patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Stop building clinics already and staff the ones you currently have. Just because your company is growing doesn't mean you can not be fair to the ones that are already built.
