    I have been working at United Allergy Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of fun projects. Relaxed atmosphere. I have learned so much since I joined.

    Cons

    I don't have many cons to report. At times the field and the home office need to improve communication but that seems to be getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the regular communication, it is really important.

    I worked at United Allergy Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Entry level position with limited supervision. Pay isn’t terrible for an entry level job and you can gain experience in the medical field.

    Cons

    This is a sales position and all the company cares about is the number of tests and injections you’re performing which are often out of your control. If you actually care about the well being of patients and helping them and you don’t want to sell them something they don’t need, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Management was rarely seen. Only daily conferences calls were held about what we were going to do to meet our numbers.

    Pros

    You get to run your own clinic and great for entry level to gain sales experience and add to your resume when you find a more stable job or go to grad school, nursing school etc.

    Cons

    No job security, they don't even tell you that you are being closed. You find out you won't have a job Monday depending if you received your severance package in the mail. No principles, no care for employee except meeting quota and your numbers. You are not told you're basically a sales person and have to hustle to beg drs, pa, nurses or anyone to send you referrals and that doesn't guarantee if the patient wants to commit to injecting themselves for a year. They don't care as long as you get them to sign and make their medication. Managers are nothing but lazy overbearing, micromanaging keyboard warriors shooting out pointless emails and pep talks on conference calls because they have to report to their district managers that they are doing something in their area. Managers are at home, rarely visit clinics, probably at gym, happy hour or the spa. The CAS is the real worker that Bri gs in the money and yet you are paid 16/hr dependi g on your location. If you were a pharmaceutical rep you'd be making at least 65k a year depending on your profits. They let you go and you're just a number. It's a shame to invest so much time and stress to get your weekly numbers up to not even get a call from your area manager to say goodbye. This company doesn't care about patient care and the Drs if they make some profits then they should be more proactive in sending you patients versus you looking like a beggar going into a patient room and they telling you they didn't ask to be allergy screened like some carpet salesman. Use this information and if you're seperate take the job until you find something better.

    Advice to Management

    We know you're lazy and the reason you're stressed to have your area bring in numbers is because you have no innovative ideas or sales experience to be able to coach and be proactive in your field. Stop micromanaging, having pointless conference calls like a cheerleader and give us actual information we can use. Get out of the spa and do your jobs. Don't have favoritism a clinic success depends on location and census, how many patients does a Dr see a day? If only 30 patients and most come for chronic illness like diabetes, heart etc you can't expect to find a needle in a haystack. You favor those that test 40 a day, but yet they are at a huge clinic that sees 90 or more. Corporate treat your CAS better and watch your managers. Pay sjould start at 20/hr with all the bull we deal with.

    Pros

    Good benefits, experience, pay, training.

    Cons

    Pressure to meet a quota, micro managed from a distance.

    Advice to Management

    I can't really say anything to bad, the training was great, alot of nice people. However I do agree with another review about the success of your clinic is totally based on the doctors and staff. I got tired of feeling the pressure of getting people in for allergy tests and on immunotherapy. But I can't be to hard, it's no different than any other company who needs people to "buy" their product to stay in buisness! Overall it was okay.
