Pros: 401k plan is execellent
Cons: no training, learn as you go
Work day was filled with a lot of multi-tasking duties, no day was ever the same. As a specialist physician office, the Administrator would spend a great deal on marketing and gaining referals. I was involved with placing and designing advertisments as well as many special projects related to expanding patient base.
Co-workers were all friendly and management worked as a team. There were weekly manager meetings where voting would take place to in act protocol.
The most challenging task was learning the credentialing piece, although a most welcomed challenge once I became acclimated. I even discovered that the physicians needed a second DEA license for multi-State practice, which they were unaware of. This discovery potentially saved the Practice liability.
Taking part in the supervisors meetings gave me a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment as my opinion was counted and made valuable changes.
Physicians contributed into each person's 401K plan and the employee didn't even have to make a contribution. They would also match employee contributions. When I left without contributing a dime, I had near $2000. towards my retirement.
