    I have been working at US Oncology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, which is helpful when things start to get stressful. Everyone tries to keep the pressures of the job from getting to one another. Patients seem to really like the staff, which shows that the patients come first.

    Cons

    Healthcare "benefits" are a joke. A savings account would be more beneficial if you're married and/or have kids. As a single person, premiums aren't bad at all, but add 1 other person to your plan and it will go up 8 fold (Not an exaggeration).

    Advice to Management

    Offer healthcare plans that are affordable to those with families.

    Pros

    Caring for the patients being able to make sure the Doctors terms were meet and doing what the Doctor ask staff. Being able to help the patients and the Doctors

    Cons

    office not big enough, patients sitting in waiting room to long, staff using profanity language at times, on cell phones most of the time, to many chief and not enough Indians, other staff blaming other employees for something they done instead of taking the blame themselve. Telling other staff what to do instead of them doing it.

    Pros

    This is a large network so lots of opportunities and the company is doing well. They really put a focus on the employee culture and patient centered care.

    Cons

    The community centered care aspect is not embraced by all the practices. It is such a large network, and most of the Texas practices silo themselves and are not open with working with the other TXO practices. There are not HR coordinators at each site, so individual managers have to handle almost every aspect of the hiring process with little help. There are too many systems required for staff to be used in daily processes. None of the systems talk to each other. Efficiency is not a focus.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage. Be an example to your employees. Remember patients cone 2nd... Focus on your employees first and the patient focus with come.

    "Money first patient care 2nd"

    Pros

    Great coworkers, team players, relaxed atmosphere, good middle management. Middle management is good at keeping us up-to-date on our employee reviews,TB tests and CPR certifications and they pay for our CPR certification. Easy to talk to middle management.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management, decrease in benefits, only a few choices for high cost/deductable Health Plans.They don't value their employees. A lot of atta a boy but no compensation for it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember what your business is about, patient care! Stop cutting corners. You have to spend money to get quality clinicians and staff and they are what makes your business successful. Show the love

    Pros

    Few good coworkers and doctors. Can’t really think of much else. This company is not good to its employees which is sad.

    Cons

    Favoritism, no training, you are expected to do the work with close to no training and when you ask questions you get snarky answers from the higher ups. All they care about is money, not the patients or the employees. If you do a good job you get more and more work. Always short staffed, lots of turn around with unhappy employees. Horrible management and a lot of doctors are very hard to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees lower on the totem pole and if all of them complain about a higher up it’s bc it’s true.

    I have been working at US Oncology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working side by side with the oncologist by seeing patients, implementing tests, treatments, and all of his follow-up and new patient notes while in the room. Also, knowing that the Doctor's time is no longer taken up by hours of dictating.

    Cons

    Having to stand for up to 6 hours at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Provide scribe chairs in the clinical area to use while physicians are not seeing patients or in meetings.
