    I have been working at US Oncology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Our benefit package is awesome. Employee appreciation week, theme days, and overall a nice place to work.

    Cons

    Have to fight for equal pay. Company will try to lowball and undercut you wage wise. Unprofessional behavior from coworkers is tolerated and goes unmanaged in certain departments. Training is at times underwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Have a specialized training program, and encourage employees to seek out information on new healthcare trends. Manage your employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at US Oncology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You don't have to work weekends or holidays.

    Cons

    This company is very money hungry. They don't care about their patients or their employees. If you are an infusion nurse with zero chemo experience they'll hire you and promise to train you but that's not what will happen. They will put you at risk and pressure you to eat your lunch right in the same space where chemo is being prepared. And if you work in the Pearland office, you will be mixing your own chemo...... they have very little regard for patient or staff safety. They only care about a warm body to administer chemo so they can make money and they don't care if that nurse has been properly trained or even if that nurse knows what they're really doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to open as many infusion centers as fast as possible and properly train your staff. And stop allowing employees to eat food where chemo is prepared. I don't understand how in the world you guys haven't been shut down yet.

    Pros

    Ability to work on own

    Cons

    Management lacks understanding of job duties and responsibilities; more concerned with the rules of the office than the actual job itself; pay could be higher or at least have opportunities to move up

    Advice to Management

    Find management that actually knows the job role.

  5. "Terrible place to go to work or for patients"

    I have been working at US Oncology full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The patients are amazing people

    Cons

    The management is not good

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure you TREAT all of the employees with respect and dignity. Please stop making a employee feel hostil, by making them choose their family and allowing others to be with their family all of the time. Please know that you all need to give the janitor, medical assistant, front desk, the same respect as you all give the nurses. Treat your employees right at all times not just your friends. Please star... treating the patients with dignity. They make the patients wait hours and then make excuses with an attitude instead of checking on the patients and give them an update. The patients are very sick and some of them get treated like it is their fault that they have cancer. It is so divided one side of the clinic do not associate with each other. Management need to stop being friends and make sure that everyone gets treated right. It hurts to know that they have townhall meetings and still allow what goes on! I wish they would take a look at the big picture! I’m not angry I’m hurt to know that a place make it seems like it is for the patients. Someone need to go secretly for about 1 month and they will see what really go on. They will put on a good show if they know that someone in a higher place is watching

    Pros

    Excellent trial portfolio. Name recognition.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and direction from USO Research. They are not proactive, good guides for the sites. Outdated thinking and lack of development and education as a CRC. CRCs are more and more overworked with unrealistic workloads. No career ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending so much time running metrics on your sites and help them do better instead. Hire people at the leadership level who have leadership skills.
