    I have been working at Medcor full-time

    Pros

    Pay is OKAY. (does not make up for not having insurance or compare to other temp positions) Its a remote position so no direct patient care.

    Cons

    No lunch breaks. Only 10 and 20 min during shift (not enough time to do anything) No holiday pay, no sick leave, no PTO, no benefits. Medcor really gives off a vibe that they don't care about their employees. Given, this is a contracted role, there was no information given about policies pertaining to its employees. Not even basics such as when you're considered early/late clocking in, how to take off/call in if need be. If you enjoy just winging things as you go along, go ahead and apply. Its a great stepping stone to something else but I don't see myself being here long term. OH! and they get you with the "We usually recruit from within" mess. I applied for a position within the company that I was CLEARLY qualified for and got a NO back within 12 minutes. What a joke. Not to mention how they've brought on numerous "shift leads" that have no idea what's going on but somehow overlooked the nurses that have been with this project since day one.

    I worked at Medcor full-time

    Pros

    I'm no longer working here.

    Cons

    Company Culture - Starting at the Top. The CEO claims he is about culture and values. I'm not sure what magic tool you need to find the values, but they are not as transparent as this company states they are. Unless you are a "yes" man you will be black balled and not heard. The CEO and COO band together and do not provide anyone a voice unless your voice agrees with their one sided opinion. I suggest you stay far, far away unless you enjoy not being heard or respected.

    I worked at Medcor full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Depending on your function, some teams are run more efficiently than others. Coffee, fruit, and oatmeal are available on most days. Some are given work from home opportunities. Daily wellness walks are encouraged.

    Cons

    A top-heavy organization with too many VPs aka limited growth opportunities. There is no leadership track, succession planning, or open conversations for advancement. Upper management looks and feels like an Old Boy’s Club. For a wellness company, they offer poor benefits and weak salaries scapegoating under the guise of “we aren’t located in a major city so we don’t have to offer competitive salaries/benefits.” PTO is not separated from sick days, so those with a family are likely to be pinched by the less than adequate offerings. This, in my opinion, is the biggest con. Salaried workers are required to clock in and out; recording a timesheet like an hourly worker. Employees will tell you that there is an underlying lack of trust (concerning management) that runs in the background of every “water cooler” conversation. Medcor is more reactive than proactive in keeping talent. Raises and promotions are granted to those who submit resignation notices because retaining talent is not a priority.

    Pros

    Autonomy. Medcor trusts that they hired the right person and immediately integrates you into decision making. Across all departments I see and hear of little to no micro management.

    Cons

    Although help is readily available, you have to ask for it, which is fine by me, but I know some people are not great at it. I have seen people leave because to their standards they don't feel they are contributing, but in almost all cases the individuals did not reach out to be heard.

    Thanks for sharing your pros, cons and advice – we appreciate the specifics and will take your feedback into consideration! We admit we are very particular about documentation (“particular” sounds better than “micromanaged” but probably feels similar sometimes…). We appreciate the great documentation our team and systems deliver – the accuracy, timeliness and completeness of our reports is a huge part of the value of our service.

    Thanks for your positive feedback. We do provide career advancement for our employees and promote from within whenever possible. Some opportunities require relocation or travel, and some can be done virtually from a home office. Please monitor our job postings on Glassdoor and our website.

    I have been working at Medcor part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay for the position I held and the schedule was flexible which is what I needed. The job itself is pretty straightforward. If you have actual real world medical provider experience and have worked in a office setting before the job is easy. Especially when compared to working in the back of an ambulance! There are opportunities to work other locations and if you are willing to travel there is a lot of job type flexibility. Other than the cons listed below it's a fun job to work at. You get to see the outcome of your actions in the long run and can have a positive impact of the employees you treat.

    Cons

    Being apart and far away from HQ makes communication with upper management difficult especially when there are major problems that cannot be resolved when local management is unwilling to help or the cause. There is minimal training for the position and any training that is given is piecemailed over a couple months. It was a very hostile work environment due to my local manager. The manager has a propensity to bad mouth you behind your back and actually make up problems to make you look bad. I think if I had a different manager my outlook on the company would be much more positive. I liked my job but, all it took was one bad manager to ruin it for me.
