    I have been working at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wide range of things to learn from working front desk to blood draws and EKG's, injections and drug screens.

    Cons

    Some late days getting off. Overtime is scarce but sometimes you can travel to other offices to get hours.

    I worked at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Operations executive allowed onsite management to make decisions as they saw fit in most cases. Gained valuable experience which helped me progress my career.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can get a bit tough at times. Even though the schedule was Monday-Friday I still had to work on weekends sometimes. Pay could be a bit higher but overall not too bad for a new manager.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay of the staff. As a manager it was hard to retain staff once they had built up enough experience to be attractive to the competition.

    I worked at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Prior to being owned by BSBC of SC UCI Medical Affiliates a/k/a Doctors Care was a decent place to work.

    Cons

    Initially, employment with UCI Medical Affiliates was a fairly pleasant experience, but once BCBS of SC became owners they started making changes with personnel, policies and positions. They let a lot of people go and replaced them with their people. They ran people off with their management style that bordered on abusive. They lied to the physicians, nurses, office personnel, etc. They fired three of my supervisors within a six month period. All long time employees with the company. There should be some level of a 'conflict of interest' when an insurance company owns a statewide medical service provider.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to being privately owned and get rid of the corporate chaos.

    I have been working at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time

    Pros

    Current management is a very forward thinking group, which has taken the company much further than the previous regime could ever imagine.

    Cons

    The only con I could imagine is there is a high expectation to wear many hats, at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great job for people just graduating any form of health care school. Great starting pay, and the job offers plenty of on the job training.

    Cons

    The job is not a great place for growth, because the people that are there never leave. The employees love their job and the people whom they work with.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great job, i love the people whom i work with, and the training i receive at this job. The only thing I wish could change is the center going from a 12 hr center to a 24 hour center. If the center was open 24 hrs, this would be a great job for single parents whom are in school, trying to better themselves. I wish this was something corporate could think about , since most of the physicians /providers are use to the ER hours and life style.

    I worked at UCI Medical Affiliates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get hired because they're desperate for help.

    Cons

    This company only cares about the bottom line, that is, making money and padding the pockets of Corporate leaders and the Doctors. Very greedy company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like human being and you will retain them.

    Pros

    Not really any pro but some people are great to work with

    Cons

    Expect you to work 13-14 hour shifts, management is NOT understanding of children. Constantly short staffed. One of the offices in Aiken was closed for almost a year so staff was constantly move around! VERY HIGH TURNOVER RATE! Longest employees stay is 6 months or less! Management is autocratic!!!! No oppotunties for advancement!

    Advice to Management

    Start over from corporate to the PSR's and better insurance plans, and more appreciation to your employees

  8. "Great experience for students"

    Pros

    Friendly people, great for work-study students and building connections, experience and rapport. Potential to learn more about challenges in health care industry.

    Cons

    If you don't have a car, you will need to take the shuttle, which can take 45 minutes to UCI during traffic hours.

    Pros

    Great people, easy process, and surrounding area was very nice. The atmosphere is relaxed but a great learning experience to start in the field.

    Cons

    There are very specific requirements for each position, and the studies are specific. Not many cons to working for UCI.
