    Pros

    Office environment was professional yet fun. Interventional cardiologists are wonderful physicians both medically and professionally and easy to get along with.

    Gross lack of education for specialized coders. Funding is not readily available for these professionals who need constant update and training in an ever-changing environment. There is not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to and value your professional coders. Regular education is vital. Give them what they need to succeed. They are KEY players that affect your bottom line. Show appreciation.

    Compensation and benefits are good for that region. Most of co-workers are hardworking and loyal.

    Cons

    Senior management not visible. No presence in daily operations of departments.

    Advice to Management

    Round at all levels. Provide consistent communication and don't let the blame roll downhill. Take responsibility for managers, supervisors etc, not place blame elsewhere. Train your management staff and set policies as well as reinforce them fairly across the entire system...including senior management.
