The worst experience ever. The top executives treat their employees really bad. They are very rude and if you don't fit in with their "click" they will not like you.
Pros
None
Cons
Horrible management, everyone is related and the top executives are very demeaning, rude and arrogant towards their employees.

Quantity over Quality
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Commerce, CAJanuary 19, 2017
AltaMed is sold very well at their Corporate office. Understanding that it's the job of corporate to make the experience "fun" , "respectful" or even "fair" for that sense, they should at least have a disclaimer warning you about the actual experience on site. I can't say that management is extremely dysfunctional because in all honesty there is no management on site. They've changed the health care provider system(provider/partner) that they use to provide care to each patient assuming that it will make the work flow better while not understanding that that's not the problem. The problem is that AltaMed tries to ram every single patient they can that has Medical through their doors to charge the insurance for services over and over again. The employees themselves complain about trying to give Quality care but get reprimanded for it by getting told that their incentives(bonus) will be taken away if they don't meet the expected amount of patients each day. You might as well give the patient a number and call them by their number. Employees are our greatest asset? I don't think so. The turn over rate is high. These patients deserve better from their "clinics".

Horrible Company to work for
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 24, 2016
Do not work for AltaMed. Working at AltaMed was such a horrible experience. Management is horrible, they treat their employees bad and they are so rude and they only hire and favor from within, meaning they hire a lot of their family members. They drain from money from the Government and they pretend they're there to serve and help the community,but it's all a facade. People are always leaving because they found a better opportunity somewhere else and doctors are always leaving as well. This company needs a lot of help and their management needs extensive training.
Pros
None
Cons
Lots of changes need to be made

Too bad there no zero stars
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 7, 2016
The most confusing, unprofessional, overworked, unorganized company I have ever worked at. But corporate offices are adorned and expensive looking with all other campuses/offices dingy and dirty. Members are unhappy as seen by a 40% turnover rate. Long lines, low scores on audits.. the list goes on.
Pros
None
Cons
Alot

Still in the works
RFSP (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaJune 16, 2016
I currently work with Altamed. The overall idea of the company and type of workplace they are aiming for is great and ideal. However, the company is still growing and learning. Its still in the works. Training is bad. Morale is low. Workers are needed however people continuously are fired or quit.
Not the worst company Ive worked for. But hard to grow in. Upside, if you get in with the right people, you can be considered. The company does try to hire in-house first and foremost.
Like I said, not entirely bad, but still in the works.
Pros
Hours, PTO, OT, leniency
Cons
Training, favoritism, newish company

Typical Life of a Training Specialist
Case Management Administrative Staff (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 5, 2013
A typical day consists of working with Front/Back Office Staff, Medical Providers and clinical staff; learning about the different workflows and processes within each clinic; assisting providers with optimizing their documentation processess and efficiency; collaborating with coworkers for best practices, process improvement, and user acceptance testing. The hardest part of the job is wanting to be able to reach out to all staff members simultaneously, whether it be through shadowing during work, or providing more assistance remotely or through phone calls. The most enjoyable part of the job is providing effective training to staff, while being able to take back much needed information as to how each clinic is conducted.
Pros
much learning and teaching
Cons
not having enough time in the day to reach all clinics for training and development
