    I worked at Sterling Medical Corporation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay while it lasted

    Cons

    Tons of responsibility, very little credit for accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    Don't accept a job with this company! I really enjoyed my job, but more and more responsibilities were piled on, and no communication from the company about any of the "complaints" that they had received regarding my performance. I was never given any helpful advice by my "supervisors." My termination letter listed several complaints, but I never received any of these.

    Individual work environment so you have to figure everything out on your own. The Managers don't seem to understand your job duties

    Pros

    Absolutely loved working with the veterans and their families. Worked for the previous contractor for 6 years and it was a great job...until Sterling took over

    Cons

    Very hostile environment. Micro-managed and beat down constantly. Total disorganization, upper management does not communicate with each other, so their company is in total disarray. Not allowed to talk with your co workers. Literally screamed at on the phone many times by corporate. Extremely high turn over of employees. You are not given the equipment to do your job, broken phones, fax machines ect. Making money is more important than the welfare of their veterans.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees with respect and your clinics will run much smoother. Your employees are the building blocks of your business, you need them. If you treat them good..they will make you look good.

    I worked at Sterling Medical Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They support the physician needs to allow performance of the job and the contract. They hire excellent professional professionals to meet the contract needs: e.g.: podiatry, RD, FNP. The patient population is superb (> 50 of my patients were AD during WW2). The supporting VA Hospital (Pittsburgh VAMC) provided superb lab, imaging services, and very good (generally) specialty support. Most of the professionals hired for this VA Community Clinic by the contractor were excellent: excellent or very good: podiatrist and FNP were extremely good). The Pittsburgh VAMC ultimately augmented a weak (and limited by the VA's own rules) contract LCSW with their own full time Clinical Psychologist.

    Cons

    The Contractor met the letter of the contract (Performance measure resulting in a very significant $ to Sterling: qualifying patient encounter = 1 visit during the contract FY to include pertinent preventive screens, lab tests, and annual PE performed by MD or NP), by shuffling in a regular part-time provider and also augmenting w out of town contract MD's: all good. However, at the outset of this 5-year contract all 1200 patients in the panel were unknown to me. Medical director was responsive for signing off on all lab results (and communicating information re f/u on any abnormal results) and responding to medication refill requests on all patients, which entailed at least 20 lab results, and 20 different medication refill requests per day--all on patients unknown to me. This load was heavier when the part time physician provider and/or 2-day per week FNP were not in clinic as their requests/labs rolled over to me. RN staff help limited as contractor subsititued LPN's (all good and one with extensive experience in the clinic) for RNs; they simply lacked the full education or the required degree to support the providers as envisioned by the VA RFP.

    Advice to Management

    Hire RN's when RN's are expected, without this level of skill, the panel size is unmanageable given this level of patient complexity. Find an additional full time co-medical director during year one of a five year contract to allow for full integration of the panel of 1200 patients
