An incredibly difficult work environment with clerical staff pitted against medical staff. Management greatly favored medical staff over clerical staff.
Support from management
Staff was not included in decision making processes, management pitted employees against each other, lots of favoritism.
Did not exist
Freedom to work independently
You were pretty much left to fend for yourself, even as a new employee
Only existed when you were called into management office to be told how awful you were.
It's an office full of women with the exception of a few make doctors.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I did not observe any age descrimination
That's an individual decision. This is a dead end job so it's up to you to move on and up.
Overall compensation for your work
Cost went up significantly every year while out of pocket expenses increased along with fewer covered services. Still, it's better than many companies.
Office / Work Environment
Dingy, dirty, cheap
Patients were routinely made fun of by staff, from transgendered patients to those who "dressed funny." Employees also did a lot of gossiping about each other in a derogatory manner.
Long hours with no overtime pay
A high staff turnover but that's due to staff choosing to leave, not job security issues. It's a very stressful environment that needs to be addressed.
Convenient location with an elevator
No security on site. At night it's a risk to walk to your car.
Too many ringing phones, too little staff.
Inclusive / Diverse
Very divisive; a clear separation of clerical/medical staff. A very hostile environment.
Suggestions for improvement
- Fair and equal treatment, keep confidentiality, gossip should not be tolerated or encouraged by management. ALL employees should be treated with respect, not just a chosen few.
What I like about the company
I can't think of any positives here.
What I dislike about the company
Hostile, divisive environment that's largely perpetuated by management.
