    The MFA is undergoing a dramatic overhaul. There are lots of opportunities for those that work hard enough to be noticed. It's an exciting time if you enjoy taking part in the change.

    There is a lot to be done, and the pacer is demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone is believing or buying into the new culture.

    Pros

    Job security-- with so many physicians leaving, they can't afford to release anyone

    Cons

    The physician leadership structure is seriously flawed. There are physician leaders in divisions of 5-10 people who do little clinical work, so as a physician, you are working to support the outsized salaries of these leaders. 5-10 self driven people don't need that amount of management at that cost; it ultimately leads to non-competitive salaries for the front-line physicians.
    Leadership has been awarded by politics and favoritism, and not merit. Leaders use their position for self-betterment rather than advancement of the organization's goals.
    There is no accountability for leadership. There is an understanding that advancement is by political maneuvering, and not merit, so many good people have left or are looking to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Create a sustainable model where employees are reimbursed fairly for what they do
    Re-evaluate your leadership at all levels, and get rid of the dead weight. Please notice that there is a lot of attrition in frontline physicians and none in physician leadership. Where is the problem here?
    There is a culture of placing self before team that dominates; this culture of selfishness and vindictiveness is present at all levels of leadership, and is driving out good employees.
    The CEO (many people including myself have put our job searches on hold to see what the new CEO will do) should listen to the physician employees directly. Recognize that employees are afraid of giving their honest opinion-- vindictiveness is a core value here. Recognize that the input you receive from the insecure and incompetent leadership is self-serving, and is the reason why good employees leave.
    We have a serious problem. We are a dysfunctional organization. Stop rationalizing for the poor ratings and do something to fix them.
    Accountability applies to everyone.

    Pros

    A new CEO, hopefully he will revamp and no longer tolerate the extreme nepotism.

    Cons

    It's a cesspool of incompetent leaders. The blind leading the blind. Benefits are based on your salary. Not innovative or embrace change. Please don't have a brain or your own mind you will literally become an outcast.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring friends and your neighbors kids placing them in roles which they clearly do not have the level of expertise to excel in.

    Pros

    The organization seems to be interested in changing for the better. There is operational efforts to make enterprise wide changes that will leverage the size of the organization. The complete change in leadership gives the organization opportunity to remake itself rather than accepting what was done in the past as "gospel".

    Cons

    There is a huge disparity in the treatment of providers v staff; this is changing as the bottom line and consistent business operations becomes more important. As the ones who bring in the revenue there will always be the divide between providers, and staff, but treating all employees equitably is becoming more of a focus.

    Advice to Management

    Improve operational efficiencies; continue to work towards spreading the wealth to reduce turnover based upon employee loyalty.

    Pros

    Working with some of the staff and the daily task of assisting the patients and doctors.

    Cons

    employees are not compensated for their hard work and I do not believe that certain staff are treated as valuable.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff as a value not an issue because depending on your position your staff is what helps the business to keep running in the right direction. When you have employees that the patients respect and love for the way they assist, show them that they matter and compensate them for what they do.
