    I worked at South Bend Medical Foundation (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at the medical foundation for the most part. I learned great skills, they train everyone on site, they helped pay my college tuition, I got reasonable time off, and I also had many great colleugues that I truly loved working with.

    Cons

    The staff is under paid and the so called raises are a slap in the face they are so small. The company also has a high turn over rate, leaving sites understaffed unexpectedly.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over rate would shrink significantly if pay was better.

    I have been working at South Bend Medical Foundation (Less than a year)

    Pros

    there are great phlebotomist to work and learn from. The hours are pretty decent, first shift always off on Sundays, rotating Saturdays.

    Cons

    training is kind of on the fly, they expect you to know things that are specific to their location without being taught some times. there's no clear "boss" in the lab, the boss doesn't actually work in the lab.

    Advice to Management

    have a more stream-lined training process for new graduates, have a CLEAR hierarchy, have a specified manager that is in the lab often

    Pros

    Many locations and starting pay is a little above average.

    Cons

    Low pay raises. Cut back on vacation hours.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a lot of improvement. No interpersonal skills, causes problems between Phlebotomists & other hospital departments and employees. Blows us off when there is an issue or reaccuring problem. Unapproachable and under a appreciative.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at South Bend Medical Foundation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. This company is belly up financially. They try to portray a pretty cover, but underneath this business is a shambles, especially managerial and administration.

    Cons

    Terrible place to work. VERY POOR management and administration covers for very poor management. Any complaints you may take to administration regarding management will be swept under the rug and management will never be held accountable for their actions, some of that physical abuse, along with verbal abuse. These people should be ashamed of themselves. Also, they are keeping very important things from the doctors. I would not recommend working here, unless you want to be miserable every day.

    Advice to Management

    Replace entire management and administration while you're at it. These people are solely responsible for the loss of awesome employees. If you're not going to be an office snitch or brown noser, you will be black-balled, harassed, and bullied.

    Pros

    Working in a fast pace environment with all types of different people.

    Cons

    The only downfall of working for SBMF is the shift I worked, which was second shift.

    Pros

    Learning all that the Foundation offered and how they gave back to the community.

    Cons

    Technology was on the back burner for most employees there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, management can learn a lot and improve internal relationships.

    Pros

    The benefits are reasonable. They have never laid off any workers in 90+ years in business.

    Cons

    Salaries are really low when the amount of post secondary education, the responsibility you have to take, and the fact that you work in a biohazardous envirionment are considered. Salaries have been frozen 4 times in the last 6 years. There is no opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Start running it as a serious business. There is far too much wastage. There are too many Management and Assistant Managers that never put in a full workweek and appear to never have much to do.

    Pros

    I was working as a student at the time and they were very flexible with me being out of town as well as finding me a job every summer during my school year.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative about the place. I think I could have used more training when I worked on the phlebotomy floor. It was a very fast paced environment that was super stressful place for a newbie like I was.
