Office / Work Environment
If you work in a department that isn't particularly profitable, you'll really feel it. Cramped space, re-purposing exam rooms as mini offices, people cramped on top of each other...
It's pretty much a guaranteed 40-hr week unless you work in Dermatology. Some departments send people to satellite clinics and you'll have a lot of overtime, but not many.
They have a way of being able to find out what you say on Facebook, even if you don't use your real name or identifiers. If you work here, DO NOT add coworkers as friends, and DO NOT talk about work online. They will take even the most vague complaint about having a bad day as a crime against the organization and you will be terminated for it.
It's fairly under-challenging work. Room patients, prep charts in some departments. Pretty boring stuff. Nurse turn-over is very high in some departments because it's monotonous and you lose skills.
Suggestions for improvement
- Stay out of peoples' private lives. Their kids' pictures are none of your business. Their political preferences are none of your business. Their rants about having a bad day, which they make in private on their own personal media accounts, are none of your business.
What I like about the company
Although working here was fairly underwhelming and the pay isn't substantial, especially compared to private clinics in some fields, working at ADC was decent.
What I dislike about the company
They don't understand that when you're off the clock, that's YOUR time. They don't seem to understand the difference between private conversation that takes place online, and a comment made in public that is intended to represent the company. If they ever confront you with something they're accusing you of, demand screenshots. Pics or it didn't happen, or they're being told stories that they can't back up.
