Great City, Terrible Office
associate (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 25, 2016
The Charlotte branch of American Anesthesiology is a corporate office for Southeast Anesthesiology Consultants and Southeast Pain Care. Don't be fooled in case a job listing is posted with a different practice name.

Office culture here is horrible, particularly on the management level(s). Upon starting employment, you will soon find yourself facing two options: stay for the health/dental/401k and endure horrible treatment (or, at best, neglectful treatment) as long as you can, or quit. Turnover here is considerable, with good reason. Any former employee could talk your ear off as to why.

There is no room for advancement. Most jobs do not have a means of promotion. Do not expect to be paid more if you have previous experience.

Great city, but this office is a nightmare.

Collections Administrator II (Current Employee) –  Arlington, TXFebruary 25, 2016
This is by far one of the worst places to work the ARLINGTON Tx office! Collectors manager does not stay on top of info to lead nor guide. Managers are more concerned with asking (this has been verified) peers to spy and or take pic's off staff. Managers answer a question with a question!, collectors play the role of biller, coder, and collector. Most of the AR is uncollectoable billing too old they make most their money from clean claims. Your expected to appeal claims without proper tool and yea your clinical staff bcuz you will appeal any denial and must intrepid medical records. Management too worried about gossip instead of helping. Email system is 26yrs old you aren't even notified when you get new mail that says a lot! Ppl are walking out daily!

Good Place to work
Worker (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaAugust 31, 2016
Good place to work. Pay isn't great. Paid Holidays. Benefits are good, but expensive. Don't expect to move up unless you are in good with management, meaning the most experienced person will be over looked if a managers pet applies. You will be promised raises and bonuses, but after you are hired you learn none of the promises are true. To advance in the company one will need to kiss up or be a pet. Managers know who they want when they post openings therefore one will not be even interviewed as a courtesy or even considered. Training is a joke it's more like heres this and that figure it out. Managers are not easy to approach and are not open to new ideas. Word of advice mangers and supervisors do not like to be challenged and don't dare tell them you know more about a particular area than they do. Hard workers are over looked for promotions and over time,but the favorites are promoted, given over time, and a blind eye is turned allowing them to roam around the office and free to socialize as they please....some of them being the team leaders. If they reworked the management and hired people based on experience rather than friends I believe the work environment would be greatly improved.

Has been a good place to work and still is if you are ok with current position. No opportunity for advancement or growth. Most management positions are being relocated to corporate.

American Anesthesiology
Posting Specialist (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 4, 2015
A great place to work with a good work/life balance. Overtime is optional and not mandatory. The compensation and benefits are competitive in comparison to other similar organizations. The company is constantly growing, and the employees are given a sense of job security. A typical day is self starting and relaxing. Deadlines are preset, so each employee already knows what is expected. The organization has established departments, and the co- workers are friendly. The hardest part of the job is remembering the constantly changing posting rules. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the awesome people.
Pros
the enviroment is relaxing.
Cons
the only disadvantage is working for a large company makes job advancement more challenging

Good workplace but poor management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  City of Sunrise, FLOctober 27, 2015
It was a very good place to work but the management is very poor. They do not know how to communicate with you and they do not care if they hurt your feelings. When you go higher up they do not want to hear it unless you have proof or paper trail which is utterly unfair.

My current postion
Posting Administrator (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 9, 2015
A typical day at work. Getting insurance explaination of benefits posting their payments to patients accts, making sure they are paying correctly and when they are not forwarding information to claims analyst for review and collection of proper money. Having lunch with co-workers, interacting with supervisors and manager who are great to work with. The hardest par of my job making sure I have the correct payments posted on the correct dates of service, and on correct acct.

Most enjoyable besides the pay. The company as a whole.

Very pleasant work place, co-workers were helpful in the earlier stages of my employment and were available anytime after if I needed them. The Moral Committee came up with great ideas for us to celebrate the holidays in-office and management held quarterly meetings to give us updates on company advancements.
Pros

I will give kudos to my team for job well done. At the end of the week how many kudos they had is how many balloons they can pop. In the balloons can be nothing gifts or money.
Pros

team meetings on what can be improved possible write ups if neccessary
