    I worked at U.S. Healthworks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is not a single advantage working here.

    Cons

    Executives are millionaires and making more money than doctors.

    Constantly being sued for wrongful termination.

    Millions have been stolen and now F B I is involved.

    Millions owed to former employees and vendors have not been returned.

    Complaints about a guy for sexual harassment has been ignored.
    He's completely created an environment of division, distrust, low morale, frequent turnover and chaos since he is incapable of exhibiting a fraction of true leadership.

    True financial health has purposely been concealed from DH. Significant professional expenses incurred to mitigate damages from systemic and organizational corporate cancer from within.

    DH bought a lemon in August 2012.

    Everyday people (including doctors) are jumping off this Titanic.

    A majority of the LT at the corporate office has not had real experience doing what they were doing and hasn’t only been promoted due to brown nosing or dumb luck. And these are the people who are directing the clinics on what to do and the policies and procedures they need to follow and perform. What a joke!

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to Dignity Health and that is to completely clean house at the corporate office for all directors and above.

    Pros

    Not much going for it except bi-weekly paychecks, and those aren't big enough.

    Cons

    Extremely poor training, malignant leadership. Haphazard corporate direction. The parent company gets much better health insurance, and for less money.

    Advice to Management

    Come to the clinics every week and do some work. Stop copying competitor. You know who I'm talking about.

    Pros

    With luck, with the merger between CHI and Dignity Heath all of the cuurent management will be looking for work.

    Cons

    About 2 years ago they pushed out a "feel-good" culture change initiative, promising to concentrate more on making it a better place to work and less about the $$. EPIC FAIL. About a year ago there were rumblings of a merger. Everyone had just gotten a raise. All of a sudden overtime is eliminated. Many of the hourly employess actually took a pay cut, as they depended on a few hours of overtime. The most recent directive in their unending quest for profit was to instruct providers in work comp injuries to examine both extremities, even though only one was injured. I defy them to explain how a paitient with a R hand laceration benefits by my examining his uninjured L hand. It's just a grab fr revenue folks. There has always been a push to dispense durable medical equipment. Recently they realized that unlike workers comp, private insurers don't reimburse very well, so we were insrtucted to send them out with a prescription for DME. Literally everything has become about the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Almost all of the income the company receives requires a providers signature. Administration needs to realize that providers are, in effect, signing thier checks. They exist only to support providers. They need to realize that to be successful they need to let us practice medicine and stop prcaticing bottome line. You should run away folks, it looks like CHI and Dignity are merging. In general companies don't merge because they are so successful.

    Nice people, and interesting work.

    Cons

    Located in Valencia, not enough recognition or room for advancement

    Treat the lower-paid employees more fairly. There was such a disgusting element of rich vs poor in the office place.

    Pros

    This company gives you a chance to work in the medical field, even if you dont have experience.

    Cons

    They care more about numbers, and how much productivity they can get out of their employees. They dont take employees opinions into condiseration, and they UNDERPAY their employees.

    Advice to Management

    There is favoritism all over the company. Even with upper management, and its not fair. Management needs to be realistic about how much work they are assigning to employees. Also, a lot of management needs to stop micromanaging their employees. We are adults, and dont need to be treated like children.

    Pros

    Employee benefits are fairly decent

    Cons

    Senior level management at corporate needs "new blood" for better leadership and fresh ideas, does not know (or have an understanding) on how to engage employees. Oppressive atmosphere; proof found on staff's faces and demeanor. Dividing line between management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to know the very people that support you. Read the reviews and investigate for understanding. Care enough to know your people and build relationships and trust. We are not robots or machines. You cannot build or force engagement through digital media alone. Require regular training for all management level employees on how to build interpersonal relationships, conflict resolution, employee engagement, performance management, and so on.
